|68 46%||Zombie (1979) - Dec 06, 2019
"Italian zombie makeup in this era is so very C H U N K Y, like if u agree. The prosthetics are positively caked on, several inches thick. Whenever characters discover zombies, spin the Reaction Roulette. Will they freeze in place as if nothing is happening? Calmly walk away? halfheartedly attack? Patiently wait to be bitten and killed? Or behave like a realistic representation of a human being?"
|68 46%||Shin Godzilla (2016) - Dec 06, 2019
"Godzilla looks absolutely dopey when first appearing in this movie, such that I thought it must be a different monster that Godzilla would show up later to fight. I think Japanese audiences are more forgiving of spotty CGI than other demographics too, as it's sometimes very questionable here. The heavy focus on the administrative struggles of a Godzilla attack was unique, but also makes for a boring-by-design movie, so if that's what you signed up to see, you'll get it."
|74 67%||The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) - Dec 06, 2019
"It makes a lot of deviations both from the original story and the older movies, but makes a compelling story out of the basic ideas. Rather than an adaptation of the Frankenstein novel, it feels more like an entry in Frankensteinian myth."
|79 80%||The Shape of Water (2017) - Dec 06, 2019|
|62 35%||Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) - Dec 06, 2019|
|71 58%||Vampire Hunter D (1985) - Dec 01, 2019
"D is a pretty Kenshiro-esque 80s hero, traveling the world all stoically and using his unstoppable badass powers to fight evil and rescue the damsel. But this is great because it has lots of nutty supernatural elements with that rough-around-the-edges look of 80s anime."
|72 61%||Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) - Dec 01, 2019
"This incarnation of Spider-Man has carved itself a cozy little niche as the high school comedy entry in the Marvel universe, and it's filling that niche very well."
|78 78%||The Skin I Live In (2011) - Dec 01, 2019
"This is a very well made, powerful, emotional movie that I don't think I can ever watch again. I did love it, but it was a taxing experience."
|76 73%||Kamera o tomeru na! (2017) - Dec 01, 2019
"It kicks off as a fairly standard one-shot zombie horror movie, full of some strangely assembled shots and flaws, but the second half deconstructs itself in a really wholesome family comedy where everything turns out to be so much more by design than you would ever think by just watching the first half."
|73 64%||The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939) - Oct 14, 2019
"Having not seen the Disney version of this story yet, I'd be curious to see how they handle scenes of murder and pouring molten metal on people."
