    Boom!

    ★★½

    I have to wonder if people are just pretending to love this movie so John Waters will be their friend. He cites Boom! as his all-time favorite film and claims to use it as a litmus test for relationships, which I honestly find hard to believe, but okay, John. I’ve been wanting to watch Boom! for years for this reason and because it’s a Tennessee Williams script starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. How could it miss?! Well… let’s just say,…

    Death on the Nile

    ★★★½

    While everyone is talking about Kenneth Branagh’s remake of Death on the Nile, I decided to go with the original one.

There were even a couple of moments that caught me by surprise. This was good fun and worth watching mainly for that marvelous cast.

"Manhunt", "Maniac", "He's a Dream", "Romeo" – so many great tunes, and they make up for the fact that a LOT of screen time is…

    The House That Screamed

    ★★★★★

    Man, oh, man! Just when I'm beginning to think I've seen every horror movie worth watching, an obscure gem like this one here sneaks up on me and blows me right the fuck away. 'La Residencia' is an unjustly overlooked masterpiece. It's a bit leisurely-paced, but the characters and mood and atmosphere – not to mention the lush, melodic score by Waldo de los Ríos – are all strong enough to hold interest. By the end, I was spellbound. See it!
