|86 89%||Frankenstein (1931) - Oct 26, 2019
"Of these early monster movies, this is the best. Frankenstein has some great effects, sets, acting, and a great story. It doesn't include all the intricacies of the novel but what is here is occasionally harrowing and the simplicity of the monster works in a short picture. This has stuck with me more than than all but the best horror pictures since."
|69 67%||The Invisible Man (1933) - Oct 26, 2019
"A very good early monster movie that is surprisingly excellent in the special effects department. Rains, despite mostly being a voice, is excellent in the role. It's a little bit lacking in substance like many other monster movies but it is still quite entertaining."
|26 24%||Event Horizon (1997) - Oct 23, 2019
"This is a movie that I would love to see remade. There are more than a few interesting ideas here but Paul W. S. Anderson is a woefully inept director whose interpretation of this script goes from being boring to laughable by the end. In the hands of an even halfway competent director this could be horror gold."
|89 91%||Rosemary's Baby (1968) - Oct 19, 2019
"The very slow tension built throughout doesn't always pay off but this is considered by many to be a classic for a reason. Somehow it only seems more poignant in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement where a vulnerable young woman is drugged and raped and everyone around her is gas-lighting her into thinking everything is fine. Wait... Roman Polanski made this?"
|71 69%||The Boys (2019) - Sep 20, 2019
"The Boys ins't a fully realized show yet but it's combination of satire, cynicism, gleeful violence, and dark humor are a winning combination that has me wanting more."
|69 67%||Cowboy Bebop (1998) - Sep 19, 2019
"Well, this is certainly a stylish show. It combines elements of western, noir, anime, and jazz (holy shit that music) and creates something very unique within the space. Outside of the style, everything else is thin on the ground as the characters are only okay and the plots are largely noir tropes. For those who are taken by the style, this is damn near masterpiece level anime but for those who want something more, this can be a bit lacking. "
|15 10%||Serenity (2019) - Sep 01, 2019
"This movie is crazy. It takes its premise with the utmost seriousness never realizing its own stupidity. I don't know how the in Plymouth Island they got McConaughey and Anne Hathaway on board to do this. What's even more crazy is that they both seemed to give it their all. I guess in a short summary: this is so bad it's actually kind of brilliant."
|49 49%||The Powerpuff Girls (1998) - Aug 30, 2019
"This certainly has sugar, spice, and everything nice. Unlike the titular girls, this lacks the chemical X, so it is only decent. "
|85 88%||Harvey (1950) - Aug 30, 2019
"There is something incredibly charming about this film. Sure, just having Jimmy Stewart does bring a certain level of class but the plot and the overall tone of this film make it whimsical and fun. A very good comedy from its era."
|30 28%||The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2002) - Aug 27, 2019
"I was probably a bit too old for this but I did see some of the original run. It's basically a bad imitation of Dexter's Lab. Oh, and the computer generated animation is horrific."
