    It's kinda crazy that I never caught this one growing up.

    Something that really impressed me with this was the camerawork of director Fede Alvarez. There is one single-shot take…

    Film #5 of my Chain Reaction Challenge

    Wow...

    I'll start by saying, for the people that didn't like this...I get it. I do. It's very slow burn. It's very derivative, particularly borrowing from Scorsese. Then of course, there is the controversy. I'm not one to get involved in politics or anything like that but I'll say this; from all of the shit I heard before seeing this today about how "this…
