    ★★★

    I had forgotten how truly ridiculous, random, and above all, John Carpenterian this movie is. Why is there a beholder running around in the middle of it? Why the hell not?

    ★★★½

    Plenty of mortal combat, zero actual Mortal Kombat. What a ripoff! Negative eleventy million stars. They should have called this Prequel That Promises Eventually We'll Get To Some Mortal Kombat But Not Just Yet.

    ★★★★½

    This movie is funny. This movie is political. This movie is intelligent and wicked and very, very calculated. This movie is sometimes visually stunning, and impeccably acted.

    But mostly, it's scary as hell.

    For the love of cinema, do not watch the spoilery-ass trailers. Do not read any reviews unless you trust the reviewers to be circumspect about giving away the plot. Go in as blind as possible and just let the story's surprises unfold. Assuming you're okay with scary…

    ★★½

    Sign me up as the apostate that just doesn't appreciate this one, that doesn't really understand why a long, rambling, sleepy movie about a disconnected, disaffected, insanely rich and privileged teenager moping around until he gets laid is so moving to people. There are better romances, better gay coming-of-age movies, better summer-fling stories, and movies where I don't get really really distracted by watching a dude gut a peach in his bed with his bare hands and then fuck it, making an immense mess for someone else to clean up. I will fight the world on this one.
