    ★★★★★

    What is there to say about this film that hasn’t been said already a thousand times? Praising this film now is just preaching to the choir, but I just have to give my 2 cents on it. 

    The Thing is a masterclass in horror that any fan of the genre must watch. Even approaching 40 years after release, the film proves to still have the absolute pinnacle of practical effects ever put on screen. Rob Bottin’s horrifically grotesque makeup/SFX along…

Take that into consideration as you will, but I was trying out some “method watching” techniques by trying to achieve a similar mental state shared by the films central protagonists Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Sean William Scott).

    Despite my elevated state of mind, this stoner comedy still fell well below my expectations. There’s something about the “stoners…

    Brawl in Cell Block 99

    ★★★★½

    S. Craig Zahler’s sophomore feature film Brawl in Cellblock 99 is a gritty and gruesome throwback to classic grindhouse cinema. 

    From the moment Vince Vaughn’s character Bradley obliterates his girlfriends car with his bare hands I was completely sold on his physical prowess. Bradley is a fucking monster, dispatching guards and inmates with hyper violent kills like that of a slasher villain in a horror movie. Arm snapping, head crushing, face smearing, it’s a smorgasbord of people getting decimated.

    Despite…
