    Man, what a fucking cool movie. Such an incredible, unique, and undeniably influential style radiates throughout this whole thing; from the music, to the costume design, to the technologic/cyberpunk aesthetic, and I don't even need to mention the bullet time. The fact that this movie is just so slick and cool would be enough to sell me on it, but the fact that it's also very clever, masterfully constructed, and thought-provoking makes it an easy all-timer for me.

    An interesting premise supported by a damn solid cast and great writing, this is an undeniable sci-fi horror classic. I admittedly haven't gotten around to seeing the 1956 original film, but this one very much sold me on the concept. I'm curious to see how the original stacks up but, for now, this is a fantastic film that clearly had a sizeable influence on the direction films would take in the years and even decades following its release. The groundbreaking practical effects in particular are impressive and really sell this mysterious alien force quite well.

    Alright, this is probably better than I expected. I genuinely kinda loved a lot of this. The concept is cool and the character dynamics are compelling and really drive the entire movie. Thomas Jane is a pretty great lead in this and is really the heart of the movie. His relationship with his son is magnificently executed and the pushback he gets from other people in the supermarket is surprisingly compelling. That ending is also just... just so damn grim, man. It's some really good shit from start to finish; Darabont is the king of King adaptations.

    A true monster movie classic, James Whale's The Invisible Man mostly forgoes any set-up and mostly brushes over the how of Jack Griffin's condition and dives straight into the shenanigans and absurdity. It's a very entertaining movie with a short runtime that mostly flies by and some impressive special effects. It's very much a product of its time with some loosely defined characters and motivations and a pretty lackluster plot, but it's also quite impressive and creative. I had a fun time with it.

    When I first heard James Wan had a new horror movie on the way, I thought "ah, yeah, I might give that a go eventually", but when I started hearing "this is the kind of movie you only get to make when your last movie made the studio a billion dollars" and " Malignant gives me hope" I knew "oh fuck, I have to see this right now".

    Malignant is an interesting film, to say the least. What starts off…

    Where's my pussy?

    This is honestly a pretty solid follow-up, especially now on rewatch. It expands on the world, builds on what came before, and sets up the reality outside of the matrix in some fascinating ways. It's convoluted as hell, for sure, and very exposition-heavy at a lot of points, particularly near the end, but the action is still damn good and I just really love seeing more from these characters.
