|29 T3||Lucky Number Slevin (2006) - Mar 19, 2017
"Would have been more successful as a more lighthearted genre sendup, without the attempts at cool violence. "
|44 T5||From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) - Mar 14, 2017
"I like movies that change direction partway through, but this takes a bit long getting there and the segue between genres, which must be awesome on paper, comes off looking ridiculous due to horrible CGI. Having said that, the second half is tremendous fun."
|16 T1||KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978) - Mar 06, 2017
"So bad it's good? Unfortunately, merely so bad it's crappy & boring. Naturally, the story makes no sense, the special effects are insulting and the band members can't act. Ace and Peter seem way to strung out for the task, Paul perhaps not enough. You'd think at least the concert scenes would bring a bit of lift to the proceedings, but you'd be wrong. By the way, how is it possible that a professional hard-rock drummer has the floppy arms of a 90-year old grandmother?"
|44 T5||Hillsborough (2016) - Feb 26, 2017
"Human crush disasters are one of the most terrifying and fascinating tragedies. This documentary does a good job of showing the human side of the event, as well as detailing many of the contributing factors and cover-up specific to this disaster."
|65 T8||The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) - Feb 26, 2017
"Somehow Anderson manages to omit all his annoying tendencies but keep the charm. The story might seem slight, but it's certainly funny, and has a nice tinge of cynicism to balance the twee. "
|29 T3||Castle of Owls (1963) - Feb 20, 2017
"This was clearly shot for a much larger screen than I watched it on. The story is decent but the screenplay is a bit clunky. Most of all, I'm just not used to seeing doughy middle-aged civil servant-looking types transform into ninja superheroes at night. "
|46 T5||Eye in the Sky (2016) - Feb 14, 2017
"Probes around admirably at the various moral and practical angles to its subject but unfortunately can't help being heavily twisted in favor of the home team. The first half or so has tremendous tension, but there are times when the second half feels more like a Law & Order episode. "
|44 T5||Zatoichi at Large (1972) - Feb 05, 2017
"Another of the darker-feeling ones; although the story was pretty typical this episode just had a gloomy mood throughout. Mori throws a lot of twists into the final action scene, including Ichi in a festival costume and Ichi on fire (!) but they somehow fail to gel into a cohesive, impactful whole."
