    ★★★

    2020 was a fucking car crash, so what better way to start the new year than with some car crash fucking?

    Cronenberg’s unabashedly perverse sleeper hit is a difficult film to quantify, calling into question what exactly defines a good film. Do we rate works based on personal enjoyment?

    Read what the film means to me as a person with chronic back pain, along with the reviews of five other Almodóvar fans, here.

    Ranked: 2021

    Was lucky enough to “get over here” for tonight’s Mortal Kombat premiere event, and I’m delighted to report this movie FUCKS.

    Captain Boomerang who? Josh Lawson is fucking hilarious, stealing just about every scene with his quintessential ocker bastard Kano. Ludi Lin and Lewis Tan are possibly the most attractive…
