    ★★★½

    Unfortunately suuuuper conflicted on how I feel about this one. One one hand, it’s the most stylishly-made and horror-centric MCU feature to date, all thanks to man, myth and legend Sam Raimi; on the other, it’s a near-complete catastrophe in terms of pacing, plot and dialogue. As the title suggests, it is a very strange film, but not always necessarily in the right ways…

    Just as I suspected things would be, the best parts of this movie were the things…

    Well damn…I think this might be one of my new franchise faves. Tightly-paced with awesome kills and a goofy 3D gimmick that, even when viewed in 2D, adds a whole ‘nother layer to the entertainment value. Plus, even though Harry Manfredini always delivered great musical arrangements for this series, the man outdid himself with the groovy, dance floor worthy opener he whipped up for this installment. 

    I honestly forgot how lovable Dana Kimmell was in this! Amy Steel’s Ginny will always…

    This really sucks to say: I think I liked the first one better. Yep, they definitely “Sonic-ed” this one up some more - echidnas, egg mechs and shiny green gemeralds abound - but somehow, despite having that colossal ‘get out of jail free’ card in its hand, this thing still managed to land itself behind bars with the writing. Lazy pop culture pandering, WAY too much time spent on human characters, and more tired tropes than you can shake a stick at;…

    I’m bummed I didn’t like this more. I’d heard it was pretty kooky before my viewing, and it is, but in all honesty? Dancing zombies, sudden claymation segments and inappropriately-timed musical numbers are only like…a 4 or 5 out of 10 on my own personal kook-ometer. 

    Not one song from the soundtrack really stuck with me, either. Usually, in the musicals I’d consider to be good, there’s at least one banger in the bunch, but I remember the accompanying scenes much…

    Well, this would’ve been a-okay coming from just about anyone else in the horror scene, but coming from an established director like Edgar Wright, I felt it was kind of a let-down. 

    It is a rather nice-looking feature for the most part, and Thomasin McKenzie is so cute it should be illegal, but the story it tells is missing the exhilarating edge of the director’s former films. Plus, the editing in this film all seemed superficial; it made you say…

    HoopTober Se7en - Film #1 / 31
    ———
    Ah, so here we are at the beginning of HoopTober! To start things off, I decided to go with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. This is the only film on this year’s list that I’ve already seen, and I have a pretty good reason for rewatching it...

    I was not at all a fan of this one the first time I watched it. I thought it 100% flat-out fuckin’ sucked. The original was…
