    Mermaid Legend

    A truly extraordinary murder/revenge movie from Toshiharu Ikeda, the director of Evil Dead Trap 1 (and also this fun Roman Porno). Most of this movie plays out like a solemn drama. It is serene and has some gorgeous cinematography. Then the final 20 minutes happen, and it is absolute carnage. It becomes Blood Spray: The Movie.

    Just fabulous!

    A wonderfully entertaining mash-up of the American buddy cΜΆoΜΆpΜΆ comedy and the Asian action flick. It has a great dynamic between the two main characters, kinetic fight sequences (a bit too over-edited though) and Brittany Murphy in one of her most delightful roles ever.

    Dope!

    My opinion of Spookies hasn't changed since my initial viewing, but I have to say that I did have a better time with it today because I got to make fun of it with Michelle.

    A horrendous movie, but (some of) the makeup effects were great.

    People either move to the big city or to the afterlife

    Not the "Twin Peaks transported to a snowy Turkish village" -movie that I had hoped it would be, but Kar ve AyΔ± is nonetheless a very solid mystery drama. It's very much about small-town dynamics and tensions/suspicions rising when someone goes missing. Then again, it's also about a young independent woman having to try to hold her own in a place with more traditional gender roles.

    A wonderful debut by director Selcen Ergun.

    An excellent cyberpunk-arthouse-thriller-cum-psychological-horror movie directed by Brandon Cronenberg. High on violence, style and weirdly enough vaping. The conscience-swapping setup isn't new of course, but the entire thing is executed with aplomb.

    I had a really good time watching this with Michelle this afternoon and I can't wait to check out more of Jr's movies.

    Pathaan takes the suaveness of James Bond, the spectacle of Mission Impossible and the ridiculousness of Austin Powers, puts it in a blender and amplifies it by a factor of 11 until it becomes an over-the-top live-action cartoon.

    My first real exposure to Bollywood and it was a blast.
