  • V/H/S/2



    a found footage anthology sequel that does the impossible and doesn’t completely suck ass. but it may be the most uneven film of all time. 

    Tape 49: i said the anthology overall doesn’t suck ass but the frame narrative sure fucking does. the lead woman just does a Zooey Deschanel face at snuff films. the plot may as well not be there. it sluggishly moves from generic horror beat to generic horror beat. bad! 1/5

    Phase I Clinical Trials: also…

  • V/H/S



    gonna review all of the short films in the anthology individually since i’ve seen this multiple times now for some reason. 

    Tape 56: pretty cool frame story. i really like how it starts off as very choppy and aggressive with some rapid cuts and harsh noise. the characters are also suitably disgusting people for the stuff they’re getting involved with and it’s a fine little exploitation piece for most of it. but then you add on some bad jump scares…

    [director’s cut]

    everything i love about Michael Mann turned up to 1000. i don’t know if i really have words off of one viewing. i know it’s an immediate favorite and that i’m probably going to watch it tomorrow. 

    i love you Michael Mann.

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    i had this whole long review planned out about how i am so thankful for Mulholland Drive and how it’s been my favorite movie for years and how Fire Walk With Me surpassed it simply by being Lynch presenting what is his most powerful and most focused statement with the best filmmaking i have ever seen but i’m gonna be real with y’all i’ve just been crying on and off for like half an hour because of this movie so that’s about all i got
