    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    Director Denis Villeneuve was the one aspect that most solidified my faith in this revelatory sequel to the beloved 1982 Ridley Scott-helmed classic, Blade Runner, and I couldn't be happier that it lived up to - actually, even exceeded - my already extremely high expectations. Villeneuve is, in my opinion, one of the best and most exciting working directors around these days and he puts his all into this dazzling effort. Even though I saw it over 24 hours ago…

    Cobain: Montage of Heck

    ★★★★★

    I've been a Nirvana fan for as long as I can remember. They've been my favorite band ever since I heard "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and immediately asked my one uncle to lend me each of their albums, and I would sit around in my bedroom blaring them one after another. From Bleach to MTV Unplugged in New York and every other live album along with the With the Lights Out box-set in between, I would consistently listen to each…

    Snake in the Eagle's Shadow

    ★★★★

    Rewatched with the very entertaining audio commentary done by my father and John Kreng that is included on the recent Blu-ray release of this. Influential to countless kung fu movies that followed, as well as the directorial debut of Yuen Woo-ping and featuring one of Jackie Chan's first major starring roles, it's very easy to see why Snake in the Eagle's Shadow is as highly regarded as it is and the recent 88 Films release of it is a perfect complement to this classic in the genre. Yet another fantastic release on their part!

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The part where a Gremlin turns into something even more terrible, to the music of Slayer's "Angel of Death", may actually be peak cinema.

    Napoleon Dynamite

    ★★★★

    "Hey, Napoleon. What did you do last summer again?"
    "I told you! I spent it with my uncle in Alaska hunting wolverines!"
    "Did you shoot any?"
    "Yes, like 50 of 'em! They kept trying to attack my cousins, what the heck would you do in a situation like that?"
    "What kind of gun did you use?"
    "A freakin' 12-gauge, what do you think?"

    I find Napoleon Dynamite to be one of the most entertaining movies about basically nothing, ever.

    Ichi the Killer

    ★★★★½

    My friend requested that we watch something "twisted". I simply put Ichi the Killer in and let her regret that particular request and letting me choose to begin with.
