• The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil

    The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil

    ★★★

    Korean crime films are truly a different breed because this isn’t anything special but it still manages to be exhilarating and entertaining enough to be an enjoyable movie.

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    ★★

    So the line about the only natural resource the world having too much of being girls.. is borderline parody. Who wrote this shit?

    Taskmaster straight up got the Barakapool treatment from X-Origins.

  • Werewolves Within

    Werewolves Within

    ★★½

    It was fine but at times the humour felt really off and forced. What’s really bugging me is the space between the letter R and the letter E in the poster now that I can’t unsee that.

  • No Sudden Move

    No Sudden Move

    ★★★

    Usually not a fan of the usage of unusual lenses creating distortions but I thought it was great here and the barrel distortion looked fairly good. 

    First act with the home invasion was incredible and while the rest of the movie was still good for the most part it didn’t really held my attention quite as well.  Still a pretty entertaining film.

  • Wonder Egg Priority Special: My Priority

    Wonder Egg Priority Special: My Priority

    ★½

    The cautionary tale about what happens when you write a 23 episode story but only have half of that to work with, so instead of pruning to be manageable you just cram it all in there anyway. 

    Talk about a drastic drop in quality.

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★

    In video game terms this felt like an add-on, where by its good but there’s not quite enough content to stand on its own. I still enjoyed it though, and I like it for the same reasons I like the first one; it’s short, concise and entertaining.

    I think the short runtime of these movies are their greatest merit and they feel like short stories divided by chapters, I’ll gladly take these over more franchise or overly drawn-out movies.

  • Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway

    Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway

    ★½

    Show was interesting in the beginning but fell apart pretty quickly. Overly dramatic and despite attempts to subvert expectations and prove how mature this was it still went down creepy territory anyway.

  • Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One

    Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One

    ★★★

    It’a alright, better than some of the stuff they have put out recently. Pacing wasn’t very good but I like the art style.

  • The Woman in the Window

    The Woman in the Window

    ★★

    About 2/3rd of this was a psychological thriller and then the ending was straight out of a cheesy 90s slasher film; felt totally bizarre and out of place, and unintentionally funny as well.

  • SSSS.DYNAZENON

    SSSS.DYNAZENON

    ★★½

    The characters here were more likeable than those in Gridman for sure, but there were so many unresolved and underdeveloped plot points that by the end of this I was still wondering what even was the point of the villains.

    Turns out teen angst + giant robots is a surprisingly okay combination.

  • Luca

    Luca

    ★★★

    I like it’s simplicity but it’s also rather formulaic and felt underbaked.

  • A Hard Day

    A Hard Day

    ★★★½

    Vaguely recall watching the ending of this once but yeah it’s pretty entertaining. It feels like a more action-oriented version of Shane Black’s dark comedy films; it got a little unrealistic towards the end but this was a fun watch.
