    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Julia Ducournau has again crafted one of the most unqiue horror films of our time (if you consider it horror, that is). Modern French Extremism, including the works of Gaspar Noe and Claire Denis, is often difficult to classify by a single genre. Is it horror? Or is it just really fucked up thriller? Sometimes the lines are blurred, and Titane is certainly the case.

    Raw has been one of my top ten modern horror films for some time and…

    Reviews for the next week are going to be rather brief and in note form and then revise them as more thoughts come to me if I'm going to stay on top of logging these.

    Incredibly profound and touching, and absolutely worth the runtime. The film is so dense, and full of deeply developed characters thanks to Murakami's source material. Hard to believe this was adapted from a measly 40 pages.

    I’m hesitant to re-watch a lot of these childhood staples of mine because more often than not I realize I just had shit taste as a kid. There are tons of movies I fawned over as a child that were by all definitions not good: X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Master of Disguise, Ghost Rider, Meet the Spartans, and Eragon to name a few. However, there are also films from my childhood like The Princess Bride, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Spaceballs

    Cary Joji Fukanaga, you beautiful bastard.

    Got to see this in D-Box because when we tried to see it last Friday the projector died before the show started so we got free tickets and decided to use them on a little upgrade. I wish we could have been a bit closer to the screen, but hot damn did these seats elevate the action sequences to a whole other level. Every punch, every kick, every gunshot, explosion, and crash is felt…

    ★★★★★

    Two hours of unparalleled white-knuckling, nail-biting anxiety.

    Sorcerer is the kind of film that comes around once in a lifetime. There are not many films as gritty, raw, and remarkable as Sorcerer. Absolute chaos from beginning to end. It captures violence and action that blurs the line between reality and fiction. It subverts the standard blockbuster formula by utilizing an unconventional narrative structure, while delivering one of the most tense and high-stakes stories ever put to film. It contains filmmaking…
