  • My Neighbor Totoro

    My Neighbor Totoro

    ★★★★½

    Charming monster movie that really is suited for the entire family. Has a way of getting to the heartstrings by depicting pretty authentic emotional conditions. Basically Spirited Away, but not on crack.

  • The Return of Swamp Thing

    The Return of Swamp Thing

    ★★★½

    Something wonderful hid in the swamps of my youth. Although to this day I have passed over Barbeau’s original, this was a golden gem that deserves accolades by anyone who lived through any part of loving the ninja turtle movies.
    Swamp Thing a well spoken plant that gets himself into miniature Kauai battles take comic book to screen as he dukes it out in front of the most priceless kids in history, blind war vets, and vegetarian girlfriend Heather Locklear. There is so much happening here and all of it is charming, less the whole ‘point’ debacle which created some tainted friction behind the scenes.

    Brawl in Cell Block 99

    ★★★★½

    Fantastic. Perfect prison exploitation film, in fact probably the best. So violent and so calmly over the top. Except for the near perfect Made and Swingers, I had written off Vince Vaughn entirely. Now he is back in the greatest role of his career. Not only was this meticulously carried out aggression but some of the violent acts were an absolute first I have seen on the screen. So happy this happened. Great watch with friends to wince and scream with.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★★

    Loved it. Reviews had led me to believe it is a disgusting splatter fest. The movie I saw was Midsommar. A journey of letting go and shedding pain. It is unsettling, but in the way of Hereditary, not Human Centipede. It is hard for Folk horror to go wrong, but I think this makes it to the top of the grassy hill.
    The films impact should stick around for a long time in the canon of horror movies.
