    12 Years a Slave

    ★★★★★

    I found myself in tears tonight
    I found myself in tears
    For here is captured tragedy that echoes through the years
    Man's untethered cruelty and viciousness hath brought
    A film - a song, nay testament! I knew not I had sought

    Solomon Northup, free from woes, is tricked into a plot
    Scheming cowards chain him up, leaving him to rot
    Enslaved and cut from family ties this horrid tale begins
    But in the darkest deepest pits, his freedom song still…

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★½

    Fire Is The Warmest Colour

    In late 18th century France, Marianne is a young painter sent to an island commissioned to paint a portrait of a Lady aristocrat, Héloïse. She is unaware of it however, and Marianne has to observe her carefully.

    It warms my artist heart to see any film about drawing or painting, and this is no exception. I was initially hesitant as to how quiet and unassuming the film was, but let it be known now that…

    Death Race 2000

    ★★★★

    Rewatching the Corman classic, I'll go back to it once every decade or so. Just wonderful, moves like a freight train, the satire and rivalry between Stallone and Carradine is delightful, plenty of gratuitous nudity, and the cheese is off the scales. It also inspired the Carmageddon video games, where the main car is an almost exact replica of the Monster that Frankenstein drives, except red instead of scaly green.

    Goes down smooth when you don't feel like watching something heavy or long.

  • Babylon

    Babylon

    ★★★

    An absolute masterclass in how not to stick the landing. Concerning an up-and-coming actress, the wannabe movie executive in love with her, a has-been and a trumpet player in the 20's and onward moving through an insane system of Hollywood debauchery and hedonism.

    This starts as a delightfully unhinged Hollywood satire (only a tad exaggerated mind you with all the pissing, elephant shit, mountains of cocaine and snake fighting, haha), and in the first two hours or so Chazelle is…

    Possession

    "There is nothing to fear except God, whatever that means to you."
    "For me, God is a disease."
    "That's why through a disease we can reach God."

    (Someone actually wrote those lines, and these actors had to say them with a straight face)

    I watched Possession because several people on my friends list seem to agree that it's the greatest thing since the invention of pizza, and that it's far superior to The Final Conflict, which came out the same…

  • The Terminator

    The Terminator

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    50 fucking stars. A hundred. The Terminator is, was, and always has been one of the greatest science-fiction action thrillers ever made.

    Let me kick it off with a story or two. The first time I ever saw this movie, I would've been about 6 or 7 years old. I was staying with my dad (a shady character) and older brother in a hotel room downtown. We were all eagerly looking forward to the movie, even though my parents had…
