    "You're a singer. You can scream the roof off."

    Since watching THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH yesterday, it got me thinking about Macbeth, which of course...got me thinking about OPERA.

    So, can we talk about OPERA (1987)? I'm dying to talk about OPERA (1987).

    The storyline is one we are familiar with, it comes from the bones of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, a stalker becomes obsessed with a singer and will do anything to get her affections.

    But, OPERA, turns that…

    Goodbye, Dragon Inn

    ★★★★

    "Do you know this theater is haunted?"

    Under a thick cloud of malaise, movie patrons and workers gather for the last showing of DRAGON INN at a closing Taipei cinema.

    The flickering of the projector, the dark corners with bellowing fans, and the loudest noise heard throughout is the martial arts film being screened in this otherwise desolate theater.

    While GOODBYE, DRAGON INN isn't necessarily plot driven, its structure serves the film with a quiet confidence. It asks its audience…

    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

    ★★

    "You think it's so easy because I didn't court you or nothin', that that's all there is to it! I married you because I fell in love with you the moment I saw you, but I thought it was the same for you too."

    This is rated G?? It is literal nightmare fuel and almost activated my fight or flight response.

    "If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?"

    An absolutely unflinching and truly MENACING crime drama. Kinda in awe right now.. This feels like it will stick with me, particularly that diabolical performance from Javier Bardem.

    Nothing goes unpunished. For your good choices and your bad ones, every action has a reaction. In NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, there is no mercy, no place or time for nostalgia. The world will spin and…

    The Blob

    ★★★★½

    "I'll be good I swear... I'll never see a movie ever again."

    I say this whole-heartedly, THE BLOB (1988) is one of the greatest creature features of all time.

    All films could benefit from BBE (big blob energy).

    "This isn't a hole. It's a grave."

    A true chiller!

    I thought once they revealed who the kidnapper was that it would be less compelling but wow, no. This is a simple premise that was able to stay shockingly anxiety inducing, upsetting, and thrilling. Safe to say, I enjoyed this more than I expected.

    I want to see Havana Rose Liu in more! I watched her in a drama last week, now a thriller, I'll watch her in any genre!
