Infinity Pool 2023
It's Mia Goth's world. We're just living in it.
Edward Scissorhands 1990
Found the dvd for a buck at a thrift store. But, that's not all! I also picked up the gorgeous soundtrack by Danny Elfman. When I opened the case, to my great surprise and delight! Some gentle, artistic, soul had strategically, lovingly, placed stickers all throughout the CD booklet. There's

Filmed in TECHNIRAMA!! Gets an extra half star due to James Stewart fancy title credit.
A good western that is helped by beautiful locations, a GREAT over the top performance by Dan Duryea, a unique setting for the final showdown, and an accordion song being a MAJOR plot device. I love how the railroad foreman asks Stewart to play his crew a song cause they haven't been paid in a month?!?! And he's a good guy!?! I'm with Whitey! Fuck him, and the railroad.

Evil Dead Rise 2023
A fun, extremely gory flick. One of my favorite title cards, in recent memory.
