|80 67%||Basic Instinct (1992) - Jan 02, 2019
"Actually rules quite a lot, largely due to Sharon Stone's performance as a superhuman predator toying with blundering caveman Michael Douglas who might as well be a different species."
|59 23%||Riddick (2013) - Jan 02, 2019
"A remake of Pitch Black that takes like an hour and a half for the main plot to actually kick in. A disappointing end to this classic trilogy."
|70 44%||Louie (2010) - Jan 02, 2019
"The stand up bits are funny but the attempts at poignancy generally fell flat for me. Too self-deprecating to achieve transcendence - the message being constantly reinforced is 'Louie is a disgusting loser who will never change' which is a cop out. Also the way it forced me to behold his masturbation habits made me uncomfortable even before I knew he actually did that in real life. "

"This is so frustratingly close to being good. Premise is classic Lovecraft and there's some really cool imagery/set design that holds up surprisingly well. Too bad it's all wasted in the hands of a total hack. If they'd hired a real director for this it could've been a classic."
|64 30%||Boar (2018) - Dec 17, 2018
"Above average creature feature. Seems like it wants to make some sort of point about performative machismo but then every scene featuring character development ends with that person being mauled to death by a massive pig."
|69 40%||It Comes at Night (2017) - Dec 17, 2018
"Extremely spare drama that constantly threatens to become horror but never really does. Not a lot going on under the surface and everything plays out pretty much how you'd expect it to but it elevates itself through quality of execution. I have no idea what the title is referring to."
|36 11%||Carrie (2013) - Dec 07, 2018
"Like every other iteration of this story it shoots itself in the foot by spoiling its own twist. The pivotal moment would be so much more powerful if we hadn't been told it was coming beforehand. It also changes the climax to only effect the 'bad' people which is considerably uglier and more manipulative. Massacres shouldn't be cathartic."
