    Empty Metal

    ★★★★

    It's abundantly clear that Empty Metal has a lot to say whether it's about police violence, the surveillance state, using violence as a political tool, what political-minded artists actually contributed to the viewpoints they spout, and so on. One can complain that its points may not be cohesive, but that seems entirely intentional.

    I respect its DIY natural and its attempt to avoid being categorized, but it gets bogged down with its overt "film student" charms.

    However, I do like that this film that has the intent of being political without force-feeding what you should be doing about it.

  • Just Before Dawn

    Just Before Dawn

    ★★★½

    While I do admire that this is much more atmospheric compared to the other slashers that were released during its peak period, I just wished this leaned more into deranged territory cause this felt like a watered-down mixture of The Hills Have Eyes and Deliverance.

    Shame on Shudder for only having the R-Rated cut of this cause I read the opening kill scene is much gnarlier in the uncut version.

    This should honestly get a lower rating, but this was absurdly awful lol. It's so bonkers, but I couldn't help laughing my ass for a good chunk of this. It's just a hodgepodge of random ideas.

    Definitely on The Happening level.

    Worth a watch just for lolz
