    ★★★★★

    Back in 2013, I was a sophomore in college. I'd made friends with some folks living down the hall from me in what was then Aspen Dorm at Northern Arizona University. I'd had connections like this my freshman year, but these visits felt particularly special, since the people I'd made friends with were far more on my wavelength and didn't have other friends from rich families who'd whinge about how they only had three thousand dollars left in their bank…

    Cinematic Detox! Theme 7 - a film you liked as a kid with a 3.0 or lower rating on letterboxd!

    Dreamworks' reliance on story formula lands them a bit of a dud in Over the Hedge. Even once the studio started pumping out quality films on the regular - thinking Megamind and How to Train your Dragon - they stuck hard and fast to the basic structure of a loser or outsider conning an ensemble cast into thinking they're something…

    ★½

    Best thing about Bloodrayne? It's convinced me we do not need to watch any more've Uwe Boll's output than absolutely necessary. I mean, things were interesting enough with Alone in the Dark, since there's a movie that lives up to its trash reputation and then some, incomprehensible and dull in the worst ways, something you can sink your teeth into hating. House of the Dead proves Boll might've made something of himself if he cared to try a little harder,…

    Film School Drop-Outs 2018! Week 2 Retro - The Silent Comedy!

    Having reflected for the better part of 24 hours before writing this review, I think the funniest thing about Charlie Chapin's Tramp are the moments when you aren't sure whether he's cottoned on or not. Take the spaghetti eating scene for instance, where his expression wavers between disbelief and satisfaction, culminating in a head turn and slow standing up with brows knit... only for it to turn out he's…

    What the #$*! Do We (K)now!?

    ½

    This thing is poorly made pseudo-science trash, and probably doesn't deserve a review consisting of anything beyond that statement, but I'm gonna write a few brief thoughts for coherency's sake.

    As with Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas, the framework here is not all bad. When they get down to discussing neurochemistry and how your brain is capable of inducing changes within your body without the need for outside stimuli, it's an oversimplified but basically correct take on what happens. They're effectively…
