76% Dressed to Kill (1980) - Mar 19, 2019
"If I were ever given the choice to either loot the fabled Criterion closet or De Palma's sleazy dvd collection, I'd pick the latter."
56% La Casa Lobo (2018) - Mar 17, 2019
"With such impressive animation on display, my total obliviousness as to what was unfolding onscreen feels somewhat dismissible, if not forgivable. Feelings I associated with its abstract story were mainly those of sorrow and distress, but I won’t pretend to uncover more about its meaning circulating underneath before I revisit the film in the future."
56% Obsession (1976) - Mar 15, 2019
"Goes from cheesy kidnapping flick to even cheesier Vertigo update, but then Schrader slaps you in the face with a "ooh no, he didn't" plot twist that is all kinds of fucked up as you replay the entire movie in your head. Great score by Bernard Herrmann and that ending is classic De Palma."
35% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) - Mar 14, 2019
"Every once in a while, I need some Dwayne Johnson in my life, and he hasn't been this fun to watch since The Tooth Fairy. L'Chaim!"
22% Coureur (2019) - Mar 14, 2019
"Having busted my ass as an unpaid PA on this film, I can't say I'm not disappointed by the end result. Through a somewhat cynical eye, Mercken recalls his past triumphs and travails in the competitive cycling world while revealing the profoundly unromantic underbelly that lies beneath its seemingly innocent facade. But his bid for authenticity goes at the expense of the inherent drama between the main characters that seems to have gotten lost somewhere during its misguided editing process."
15% Gymkata (1985) - Mar 12, 2019
"I must leave you soon, my friends. In Parmistan, the land of pitchforks and Parmesan cheese, my destiny awaits. For years, I've been chasing an empty dream. Have I been blind all this time? Was gymkata the answer all along? I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my... Actually, screw that shit, what I need are turtlenecks!"
56% Leaving Neverland (2019) - Mar 10, 2019
"More than just a sickening testimonial, this doc made me feel sad for so many other victims of child abuse whose lives have also pretty much been destroyed. Respect to LaToya for having been the bravest one all along."
56% Sisters (1973) - Mar 08, 2019
"De Palma brings his usual flair to a weird story that manages to remain intriguing despite being laden with needless filler. Note to self: never trust anyone with a sofa bed."
56% An American Werewolf in London (1981) - Mar 07, 2019
"The whole thing is seemingly played for goofs, and nothing about it should work, but strangely enough, it does and is - for the most part - totally fun and awesome. Surprisingly, the scene where he goes on a rampage for the first time didn't thrill me so much, but it makes up for it with a pretty sweet climax and ooh, I guess I'll just cut to black right here, said no editor ever."
76% The Sixth Sense (1999) - Mar 06, 2019
"(after repeat viewings) Still great after 20 years, especially in terms of craft, performances and character development. More than just a horror film, it conveys a thing or two about the haunting power of memory and the lasting impact a person can have when they're no longer with us. I also don't get teary-eyed easily, but that scene with Cole and his mom in the car is an all-timer. Long live 90's camcorders."
