|42 12%||Gamera: The Giant Monster (1965) - Nov 14, 2019
"Another tedious Gojira rip-off, complete with another annoying child character who constantly gets in trouble and makes every situation worse. At least I learned that if you save a single child from death, you can still be considered a good guy, no matter how many thousands of other people you kill."
|83 80%||Big Mouth (2017) - Nov 11, 2019
"Episodes and jokes can be a bit hit or miss, but when it hits, it hits it right out of the damn stadium. The entire concept of the "hormone monster" is brilliant, representing puberty's hormonal mind-screw as a disgusting beast that is nonetheless followed without question. How did any of us survive this shit? I'm still not quite sure, but I do know Big Mouth left me howling."
|35 9%||Yongary, Monster from the Deep (1967) - Nov 09, 2019
"Why don't more monster movies feature a dance-off with the monster though."
|58 26%||Baccano! (2007) - Nov 05, 2019
"Needlessly convoluted telling of an unimpressive story. Only worth it for the character name "Jacuzzi Splot." "
|67 43%||Scream (1996) - Nov 01, 2019
"Mostly watchable (though hardly scary) horror film that peaks with the first segment and never quite recovers its steam. While it could have been done poorly, the meta aspect adds a lot to the watchability factor."
|77 65%||Joker (2019) - Oct 26, 2019
"Carried by Phoenix's amazing performance and some decent trickery over what is and is not a hallucination of Fleck's insane mind. Both the bursts of brutal violence and dark comedy are quite effective. Phillips isn't good enough of a director to completely transcend past the obvious 70s and 80s influences however, and it drags a bit at the end. A good attempt, though."
|51 18%||The Last House on the Left (1972) - Oct 21, 2019
"That sure was a collection of scenes of people running through the woods and cops having wacky adventures, with the occasional murder thrown in there. Seriously though, the pacing is incredibly tedious and makes this feel twice as long. And even at its most sadistic it's too tonally disparate to horrify. Only occasional glimpses at a nice visual aesthetic."
|45 14%||Sleepaway Camp (1983) - Oct 19, 2019
"Hilariously cheesy and incompetent low budget attempt at a slasher film. No horror, no tension. Only remembered for going all-in on the presentation of the big reveal."
|79 71%||Birdy the Mighty (1996) - Oct 15, 2019
"Fun old school action OAV with a gender-bender twist. A bit on the short side to really flesh the characters out, though."
|77 65%||Samurai Jack (2001) - Oct 15, 2019
"Never watched too too much of this, and it was a long time ago, but I do remember enjoying it at the time. The newer season is a bit of a mixed bag."
