    Halloween Kills

    ★½

    David Gordon Green making the two worst Halloween movies makes me nostalgic for the days of cults and Busta. There are many bad Halloween sequels, but the sillier ones of old didn't have the delusions of grandeur this newest crop suffers from.

  • Madadayo

    Madadayo

    ★★★★★

    Dreams, Rhapsody in August and Madadayo are among the most gentle, caring films I've ever seen, and I'm grateful Akira Kurosawa was able to live long enough for his own state of mind and artistic voice to crystallize in such a way. The art of persistence. Creating a sanctuary of your own among the ruins of wartorn land. The life affirming joy that comes from appreciating nature, and having a pet at home. Living and finding reason to live no matter the state of grief, anguish, anxiety or terror the world may inflict.

    Looney Tunes: Back in Action

    ★★★★

    That SPACE JAM has become a sort of bizarre nostalgia based cult classic while BACK IN ACTION has become virtually forgotten is a crime against good taste.

    Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo

    ★★★★★

    EVANGELION 3.0 is perhaps the most dense, alienating, challenging Evangelion has ever been thus far. Like Shinji, we practically shout at the film throughout for it to give us answers, to give us something to hold onto, so we can make sense of this narrative. When the film does cooperate, it continues playing by its own rules, and gives us what we need and not necessarily what we want. The gap that we will likely never see is going to infuriate fans forever. Bravo, Hideaki Anno, you just topped the outrage that Episodes 25-26/END OF EVANGELION received.
