    Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    ★★★★★

    "If you begin Gremlins 2: The New Batch at exactly 10:32 PM on New Years Eve, the Gremlins will begin singing New York, New York at midnight." - Institute of Gremlins 2 Studies (@G2Institute on Twitter)

    I can confirm this is accurate. One of the most exquisite aesthetic experiences of my life.

  • Vada Chennai

    Vada Chennai

    ★★★★

    Convulsively entertaining Kollywood gangster film that reminded me of La Flor in its digressive time-shifting storytelling. There is a new tale uncovered around each corner of a North Chennai slum, revealing decades-old familial betrayals of operatic grandeur. Plus killer fight scenes.

    No Escape

    ★★★

    It turns out there was an escape. This is what I call the ol' switcheroo.

    This is a decent "save the white people from the other people" movie, but on the Brosnan scale I give it five out of five Brosnans. Some excellent Brosnan-ing here.

  • Young Mr. Lincoln

    Young Mr. Lincoln

    ★★★★★

    “Suppose some truant good fairy were to ask me … ‘Is there some American film you’d like me to make you the author of – with a wave of my wand?’ I would not hesitate to accept the offer, and I would at once name the film that I wish I had made. It would be Young Mr. Lincoln directed by John Ford.” -Sergei Eisenstein
