• Lapsis

    Lapsis

    ★★★

    Loved the concept, cast is great Dean Imperial and Madeline Wise certainly should be in more stuff. Kind of stumbles in the last 5 minutes but overall fun indie.

  • Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

    Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

    Impossibly long for very little pay off.

  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    ½

    This a is perfect example of “we don’t know how to make a movie let’s just throw everything at the screen”

  • American Murder: The Family Next Door

    American Murder: The Family Next Door

    ★★★★

    This guy being so casual about annihilating his family really freaked me the fuck out.

  • Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

    Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

    ★★

    Badly formatted doc, tries really hard to not let Ramirez have any of the spotlight, and instead makes it about hero cops, read the room ACAB.

  • His House

    His House

    ★★★★

    His House manages to express such intense stress, confusion, hostility with some great imagery and a few well placed jump scares.

  • The Underneath

    The Underneath

    ★★★

    The first 15 minutes I though I may have stumbled on to a forgotten masterpiece, the neo-noir vibes and Soderbergh really showing his style worked so well. As it sort of limps to a conclusion without much reason, I realized why it's a forgotten item of his filmography.

  • I Married a Strange Person!

    I Married a Strange Person!

    ★★

    A woman jerks off a buff lizard person in a nazi uniform, and that’s not even the weirdest part.

  • King of the Hill

    King of the Hill

    ★★★

    Early Soderbergh trying his hand at a great depression period piece is pretty standard stuff, with occasional flashes of the making of an interesting filmmaker.

  • Comic Book Confidential

    Comic Book Confidential

    ★★★

    Probably worth a watch for the interviews with many of the comic book greats, the content is fairly basic but manages to touch on superheroes humble begging as pro-war propaganda.

  • Twist

    Twist

    ★★★★

    America's commodification of everything is absolutely hilarious. After popularizing something you stole straight out of black culture then fail to try and recreate it by running into the ground completely.

  • Village of the Damned

    Village of the Damned

    ★★★

    As most British horror from the era, it spends far too much time with characters overanalyzing things and bogged down with dull dialogue, but when it's good it's good because the kids are legitimately scary.
