    Deadpool 2

    ★★★

    Felt way more cohesive than the first installment and the jokes landed better in my opinion.

  • Darkman

    Darkman

    ★★★½

    this film gets an extra half-star for that god-tier cameo at the end

  • El Topo

    El Topo

    ★★★★★

    A stunningly graphic journey through a harsh landscape of symbolism and imagery. Jodorowsky triumphs by bringing together a mystical, meditative atmosphere and a punishing spaghetti western landscape to create a gorgeous yet deadly palette of iconography. The mole is blinded when he looks into the sun.

  • Beyond the Black Rainbow

    Beyond the Black Rainbow

    ★★½

    A cerebral nightmare. I enjoyed the giallo-inspired scenery and atmosphere, but I found it lacking in a way. One big plus was that the film had a very effective villain in the psychopathic doctor, however there was not a whole lot else that stodd out to me besides the gorgeous imagery.

  • Redline

    Redline

    ★★★★

    If you took the lovechild of Akira, Speedracer, and Star Wars and fed it copious amounts of speed, you would get Redline.
    This film is a superb story about intergalactic racing, filled with shady mob characters, femme fatales, evil governments, and a giant mutant named Funky Boy. If you want a movie with intense racing scenes and action that never lets up, then I strongly recommend this film.
    I've always been big on sci-fi anime and this movie gets everything right. gooooo check it outttt

  • The Master

    The Master

    ★★★★★

    Holy shit. I didn't know too much about this movie going in, but I had high expectations as it was directed by "master" filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson. This film truly captures the essences of belief and cult-thinking. Joaquin Phoenix is absolutely brilliant as the leading role, a man tormented by his time spent in WWII. He is prone to violent outbursts and downright social hostility, but his relationship with "the Master" is so well-done that it brings the film into…

  • Blade of the Immortal

    Blade of the Immortal

    ★★★★

    With over 100 films to his name, Takashi Miike somehow rarely ever disappoints. Blade of the Immortal crafts a compelling revenge narrative based on the manga of the same name. I'm a huge fan of Miike's samurai movies and this one keeps the action going the entire time. While ultra-violent, the gore is mostly sprays of blood which gives it an almost cartoonist look, reminiscent of Kill Bill. If you like blood-soaked samurai movies, then definitely give this a watch.
