  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    Scavenger Hunt #83 | #14

    [SPOILERS AHEAD]

    With its stalking camera, horrific violence, mesmerizing dancing, and brilliant direction, Suspiria is a truly unique film.

    I was prompted to watch Suspiria through the Scavenger Hunt #83 challenge with the challenge being to watch a film centered around a platonic friendship. Suspiria might be somewhat of a stretch in terms of fulfilling the challenge's objective, but the theme of sisterhood is still overtly present within the film.

    Suspiria's singular vision comes clearly…

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    Watching Mulholland Drive feels almost evolutionary, constantly changing with every viewing as new details and nuances come to light. It never once feels old due to its brilliant editing that seamlessly weaves multiple side stories and ideas together in some of the best two hours of cinema ever put to screen.

    It never relies on cheap visuals or over explanatory exposition, but rather on its audience's merit and intellect.

    I constantly grow fonder of this film every time that I…

    Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

    ★★★★

    I've been eagerly anticipating Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio for the better part of five years. Pinocchio has always intrigued me. Growing up with the Disney-version, I loved the adult themes and genuinely scary scenes bordering on outright horror. And now combined with del Toro's imagination and perspective it seems like the perfect pairing.

    I'm happy that my confidence didn't fail me as Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio is one of his best films to date, a film easily worth the long…

  • Black Adam

    Black Adam

    ★★

    Considering how long it has been since Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that he would be playing Black Adam, you really would expect that there would’ve been put a lot of thought and effort into this film. Right?

    Black Adam is for the most part a boring mess of a film. The first act is a lazy, exposition-heavy blubber that feels outdated by about 15 years. The second act introduced some potentially interesting character dynamics with the JSA, but the…

    ★★★

    Overall a good story worth exploring. The show itself was of a good quality, but it felt somehow stretched thin. I do think it might have worked better as a film or a proper, longer series.

  • The Game

    The Game

    ★★★★

    A truly entertaining film. David Fincher's The Game is intense beyond messure and a thrilling ride from start to finish. It makes you think you know what will happen, but still manages to surprise you, perfectly placing you in the paranoid mind of the protagonist. Michael Douglas is always a pleasure to watch and paired with David Fincher's sense of direction it made for a satisfying film with an even more satisfying ending.

    The Game is one of those films that has been sitting idle in my watchlist for years for no apperant reason. And now I finally got around to watching it. Glad I did.
