    ★★★½

    A warm and fuzzy film expertly driven by the leads. Otherwise it is an arm wrestling movie.

    ★★★

    Blaring 90s humor whodunnit chasing a murderer across Monte Carlo. Candy and Belushi’s personas are equally matched by Cybill and Sean. They also through in some gialli names in the form of the fantastic Giancarlo Giannini who makes the movie and a small role from Ornella Muti (An Ideal Place to Kill). This was also Eugene Levy’s first time directing a narrative feature.

    Brawl in Cell Block 99

    ★★★★½

    Fantastic. Perfect prison exploitation film, in fact probably the best. So violent and so calmly over the top. Except for the near perfect Made and Swingers, I had written off Vince Vaughn entirely. Now he is back in the greatest role of his career. Not only was this meticulously carried out aggression but some of the violent acts were an absolute first I have seen on the screen. So happy this happened. Great watch with friends to wince and scream with.

    Loved it. Reviews had led me to believe it is a disgusting splatter fest. The movie I saw was Midsommar. A journey of letting go and shedding pain. It is unsettling, but in the way of Hereditary, not Human Centipede. It is hard for Folk horror to go wrong, but I think this makes it to the top of the grassy hill.
    The films impact should stick around for a long time in the canon of horror movies.
