    The Beach Bum

    ★★★★

    "I'm a reverse paranoiac. I am quite certain that the world is conspiring to make me happy."

    Wow, this delightful surprise of a stoner comedy got better and better as it went on.

    Matthew McConaughey stars as Moondog, a pure hedonist who swans around Florida drinking, smoking, and banging. His favourite part of the Sunshine State is Key West which allows him to chill out on the water all day and get high through the night surrounded by partygoers and…

    Falling Down

    ★★★½

    "I lost my job. Well, actually I didn't lose it, it lost me. I am over-educated, under-skilled. Maybe it's the other way around, I forget. But I'm obsolete. I'm not economically viable."

    Michael Douglas plays the man who snapped in Joel Schumacher's nihilistic 90s thriller.

    Douglas gives a gripping performance as Bill Foster, an unemployed defense worker who just gets out of his car in a traffic jam and attempts to head to his ex-wife and child's house, becoming increasingly…

    Mad Max

    ★★★

    "Any longer out on that road and I'm one of them, you know? A terminal crazy... only I got a bronze badge to say I'm one of the good guys."

    Decades before Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, George Miller kicked off the Mad Max franchise with Mel Gibson playing the titular cop-turned-vigilante, in this low-budget Aussie action film.

    Set "a few years from now" when Australia is on the brink of total societal collapse, Max is a cop at a…

    "Hey, can you do an ollie?"
    "No bro, I'm a poser, that's why I have this shit(!)"

    Crystal Moselle crafts a fictional narrative around a real life group of skater girls from New York City, with great results.

    The story centres on Camille (Rachelle Vinberg), an 18-year-old from Long Island who loves skateboarding. Though her strict mother wants her to give up the hobby over safety concerns, Camille instead seeks out and joins a group of girl skaters in the…

    Boogie Nights

    ★★★★

    "Are you gonna take your skates off?"
    "I don't take my skates off. And don't fucking come in me."

    Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights is a sprawling work about the pornography industry in 70s and 80s Los Angeles.

    At just 26 years of age, PTA pulled off an incredible feat of storytelling with this film. Boogie Nights features a wide cast of characters, covers many years in their lives, and touches on so many different aspects of the human condition…

    Night of the Creeps

    ★★★½

    "What is this, a homicide or a bad B-movie?"

    An entertaining and memorable college zombie movie.

    After a brief intro set aboard an alien spaceship, and then a scene set in 1959 that throwsback to B-horrors of the era, we jump forward to 1986 and meet college students Chris Romero (Jason Lively) and J.C. Hooper (Steve Marshall). Chris is pining over a hot sorority girl called Cindy Cronenburg (Jill Whitlow) and decides to join a frat to win her over.…
