    The Criterion Challenge 2021 (Film 36 of 52)
    #18 - 2000s

    Even though it's 4 AM as I write this review, I now have the strong urge to wake up my parents and my daughter to hug them and tell them just how much I love them and what they mean to me.

    As a lover of documentaries, this was on my bucket list for far longer than I meant it to be. And now that I've seen it, even…

    The Criterion Challenge 2021 (Film 49 of 52)
    #36 - Made In India

    This may be one of the most human film I've seen. Skillfully and brilliantly showing that the human condition, family, and community transcend race, culture, and location, Pather Panchali has truly lived up to all of the hype I've always seen for it.

    "You're just like me. ... Violent . . . and depraved."

    I have been waiting nearly a year to see this film, and it did not disappoint!

    Think of it like this: What if you took The Crazies, 28 Days Later, Dawn of The Dead (2004) and Garth Ennis's comic series Crossed, blended them all together, and then dumped the resulting pitcher…

    - A Boy And His Dog . . . And The Devil
    - Not All Dogs Go To Heaven
    - Hansel & Gretel Go Grindhouse
    - The Blair Ditch Project

    I've got a strong feeling this is a late contender to be in my top ten horror films of 2019. Highly recommended!

    The Woman in Black

    ★★★★

    This is a great lesson in atmospheric horror. Nice, slow building tension with mysterious happenings. Frequent moments of "did you just see that thing move?" and "Behind you, Harry Potter!!" spookiness. I jumped a few times and had goosebumps at least once. I know it was based on a stage play per other people's posts, and I'd love to see it. All in all, an excellent return of Hammer Studios.
