|5 T8||For Ellen (2012) - Jul 16, 2013
"Most films that come up empty just feel like wasted time - For Ellen is a different sort of emptiness. It's the kind where the sparse plot and character development, with the talent involved, create a story that I actually enjoy filling in the blanks (considering how it starts and ends, I don't see how this wasn't intentional). A step-down for So Yong, perhaps, but only marginally so."
|5 T8||The Heroic Ones (1970) - Dec 11, 2013
"One of the best examples of the Shaw Brothers sense of scale, silliness, and carnage."
|5 T8||The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974) - Feb 25, 2012
"No other serious actor would read this script, willingly accept it, and treat every line as if his entire career depended on it being delivered to perfection. Peter Cushing is my hero."
|3 T4||Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) - Sep 23, 2012
"Sterile & half-assed version of Brazil. I love that flick way too much to see it lamed up - even though [small] bits of this can be good."
|5 T8||The Anniversary (1968) - Oct 03, 2013
"*bows before Bette Davis*"
|3 T4||The Big Fix (1978) - Dec 11, 2012
"Richard Dreyfuss leading the pack as a 70s private dick is almost enough to sell this (and keep your eyes peeled for Mandy Patinkin in an early, dopey role). What little interest forms early on tapers off quickly, though, with that last act being entirely disposable."
|6 T10||The Comb (1990) - Aug 31, 2012
"A perfectly realized (and rationalized) bit of dream logic."
|7 T10||Edvard Munch (1974) - Jul 20, 2010
"Absolutely jaw-dropping in its treatment of the man, his work, environment, and the technique in which the filmmaker conveys this all. I cannot get these uncomfortable, despondent stares out of my mind. The editing is especially phenomenal."
|5 T8||Tokyo.Sora (2002) - Nov 29, 2013
|2 T2||Live Free or Die Hard (2007) - Jan 19, 2009
"McCain plays chicken in a 16-wheeler against a jet and still wins in the end - fuck this over-CGI'd mess of an action movie. "
