    I too would stop trying to hang myself in the work bathroom if Travis Tritt started playing. It’s a great day to be alive!! Phenomenal.

    Men, am I right?

    Garland knocks it out of the park again. I’m sure this is gonna go down as one of A24’s most divisive. He swings for the fences with this one. Not sure if some of the ideas he’s trying to get across comes off as completely cohesive but when you have an ending like that, I can forgive it. 

    Seriously tho. The last 20 minutes or so contain some of the most insane and gag inducing body horror I’ve seen in a hot minute.

    Whatever Garland continues to do, I will be there to support him!!

    ★★★★

    Walter Hill goes full blown Peckinpah and delivers a down and dirty neo western The Wild Bunch style. Enough squibs to cure any man. Also quite possibly the sweatiest movie in existence. This RIPS.

    I’ve been stoked on this since I saw rave reviews coming out of Fantasia Fest last year and Shudder did us all a favor and picked it up. Now it is officially here.

    Just as depraved as every other review of this movie has stated. This is about as transgressive as it comes. For fans of skull fucking, barbed wire to the nuts, a head explosion that would make Cronenberg proud and some of the best gore I’ve seen in…

    If you think this is the greatest film of all time, I wouldn’t disagree with you. Endlessly riveting and timeless in every which way. Monolithic.

    Here I was born and there I died. It was only a moment for you; you took no notice…”

    Verhoeven had to of been down tremendously bad while making this. No bitches, Paul???

  • Night of the Juggler

    Night of the Juggler

    ★★★★

    When I say I like sleazy movies, this is what I mean. Pure NYC grime. Brolin quite literally tears apart the city in search for his daughter. The definition of a hidden gem. 

    Also the only way I could track down this movie was a copy off EBay and it was ripped straight from the Action Max channel (commercials and all). Definitely added to the enjoyment factor.

    I could see Vinegar Syndrome giving these the deluxe treatment. A treat for genre fans like me!!!

    Probably the best use of “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” in all of cinema. Hannibal’s mind games (Brian Cox gives one HELL of a performance) set against a Tangerine Dream-esque soundtrack makes for an all time great. Genuinely terrifying and beautiful to look at all at once. Mann is on his A game here.

    Smell yourself…

    That prison break sequence is worthy of 4 stars by itself. They don’t make em like they used to.

    Jesus Christ I’ve never had so much testosterone pumped straight into my body. Eggers whipped out his big ole mystical meat and slapped me right across the face with it. Skarsgård howling like a wolf made me absolutely feral. I feel like I could turn into Kratos right about now.

    Thank you King Eggers for putting in a naked sword fight on top of a fuckin volcano. To me, that’s cinema.

    I will gladly watch any and all Riley Stearns efforts. Not as strong as Art of Self Defense but still a solid flick. Give me more Full of Hell appearances and dead pan humor please!!!
