    Stuck in the middle of appealing to general audiences and satisfying its grisly potential, culminating in something a bit toothless. It's never boring though, and the sprinkles of weird humour give it a rare slice of personality for a January horror release. I just wish there was a commitment to something harsher, because the way it sanitizes the thrills is antithetical to its inherent eccentricity.

    Natural Born Killers

    ★★★★½

    At a glance, Natural Born Killers has the potential to mislead. What seems like a full-blooded thriller packed with gratuitous brutality is in fact more profound; more intelligent than what its exterior and hateful critics may imply. It's personality is satirical, predominantly lampooning the media for their embracement of serial killers and near veneration of the activities they conduct - all done for the sake of ratings. Oliver Stone is clearly a staunch combatant of such behaviour and as we…
