    Bram Stoker's Dracula

    ★★★

    It’s better when you imagine Anthony Hopkins cast as Dracula.

    Thirst

    Review is not for the film but for my experience with Park at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles, extreme disappointment.

    After watching a poorly subbed screening of the film at the Geffen Theatre with about 200-300 people he was scheduled for an in-person Q&A. The brief 15-20 minute appearance consisted of a awful moderator asking him irrelevant questions about Dolby Atmos, how amazing Song Kang-Ho is as an actor and what he was willing to donate rather than anything…

    Download: Devil's Circuit

    A cyberpunk OVA with a blues rock soundtrack and renegade Buddhist monk hacker that is based on a set of PC Engine shmups? If the games themselves were more robust or from a different genre or if this was scaled back on its fan service in favor of context that is missing from its source material and own narrative, perhaps it’d be held in a higher regard of its niche since it is Rintaro after all.

    Even if it’s doomed to the few NEC players and pre-Crunchy Roll anime fans who stumble into it, you know what your getting and it’s served warm.

  • The Jazz Singer

    The Jazz Singer

    Calling it the first talkie is inaccurate and it’s racism is baked into the title. Gotta look out for what people choose to present the history of cinema.

  • The Other Conquest

    The Other Conquest

    ★★★

    This movie was very confused; on one end it was extremely critical about Spanish Colonialism but on the other it tried to justify Inquisition/Catholic abuses because of Aztec customs?

    Newsflash compa, they’re all bad.

    True Confessions

    How does a neo-noir film with DeNiro and Duvall end up being more boring than a Ken Burns documentary?

  • Three Thousand Years of Longing

    Three Thousand Years of Longing

    Went to a theater with a friend to watch this intrigued by the movie poster and past works of Miller. After 30 boring minutes in and seeing Idris relegated to a literal “magical negro” trope, we refunded our 50 cent tax and ate discounted nachos instead.

    Not at all sorry this flopped.

    When she said “you’re a bad dog!” we all felt that.
