    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    This isn't really a review for Stalker so much as it is an attempt to explain why someone who spends 90% of their time watching 'trash' cinema would list this as one of their top 10 sci-fi films of all time. Flying in direct and deliberate opposition to all the lengthy attempts at objectively analyzing such films, I've crafted a lengthy subjective analysis instead. We all love the films we love for reasons which are unique to ourselves, which is…

    Blind Woman's Curse

    ★★★★

    I'm surprised nobody tried to release this as Lady Snowblood vs. Daughter of Zatoichi. It would have worked better than that time they tried to market Way of the Dragon as a sequel to Enter the Dragon by calling it Return of the Dragon.

    Chanbara action, yakuza schemes, and exploitation sleaze, seasoned with a dash of Edgar Allan Poe. That sounds like my kind of recipe. This opens feeling like it could just straight up be a lost Zatoichi film,…

    ★★★★

    A little Verhoeven, a little Cronenberg, a little Miike, and a whole lot of goop. This thing is basically an excuse for Yoshihiro Nishimura to go ham on the goopy practical effects, and it warms my heart every time I watch it. It's just a shower of blood, body parts, and creative set piece moments.

    I'm sure there's a plot in here somewhere, and there might even be some underlying theme or something, seeing as how there appears to be…

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★★★★

    So, I'm not entirely surprised that this is getting mixed reviews. I think it's something that afflicts the Godzilla franchise as a whole, rather than just this latest film. In my opinion, there are two main reasons why people dislike certain Godzilla films.

    First, we must consider the fact that Godzilla is just not for everyone. It's a very niche franchise that began as a series of sci-fi B-movies, featuring actors in rubber monster suits wrestling amongst, or demolishing, miniature…

    Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave.
    - Roy Batty

    It's fascinating to me that so many people love this movie these days. Not that I'm complaining or anything. It's great to see it being appreciated. But for the longest time, I felt alone in loving this film.

    I was only two years old when it came out, but already it was influencing me, before I was even aware of…
