    Movies about racist cops are hip right now, right? Though not particularly original or exciting, or even entertaining, I did find this to be an effective attempt to portray a shitty human being as just that, a shitty human being. A racist cop is still a human being. That’s why movies like Fritz Lang’s M and Todd Solondz’s Happiness are such important films, they show horrible people as human beings, not cliched movie inventions. You don’t have to sympathize with them, you just…

    The complete version (72 min) of Love Goddesses of Blood Island is apparently lost forever. This is the longest running version (47 min) available, and we should all be thankful that we can watch this at all. What I love about this thing is how for the first 25 min or so it feels like a sorta dull beach romp, with men washing up on shore and encountering a tribe of bikini babes. Then we’re blindsided with a crazy gore scene…

    ★★★★

    Maybe it's because I went in with the lowest possible expectations, but I thought this was a total blast. Yeah it's just white-collar Battle Royale, but that's cool. It's unapologetically mean spirited, frequently funny, filled with colorful performances, and never dull for a second. There are even cool, unconventional music cues. Modern day exploitation that delivers. Also has one of the best neck snaps I’ve ever seen.

    Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris

    ★★★★½

    This is one of the best trilogies in existence. I didn’t like this one quite as much as 2, but Iris is a unique, interesting monster for Gamera to fight, and the monster battle stuff is as epic as Gamera has ever been. This film takes a look at the actual effects something like Gamera would have on human society, probably as deep as Gamera has gotten. Gamera is badass and deserves so much more love. The 90s films did a great job of making him seem less silly.

    Great gothic horror, wonderful viewing for the spooky season. Barbara Steele is mesmerizing in this movie. Literally a perfect movie to watch for Halloween.

    A misunderstood, overlooked masterpiece. Cinematic nihilism at its absolute finest. What begins as a typical bank heist film gradually morphs into something quite different and unique. Eric (one of the greatest villains in screen history) and his band of criminals don't really care about money or prosperity. They don't even take the time to concoct a semi-decent plan of action. Their operation is sloppy and insane, because they're junkies searching for their next high, the biggest high of all. They see…
