    Alita: Battle Angel

    I've wanted to write about this for a while but could never find the right outlet. Then I happened across Letterboxd, where people definitely understand the power that a film can hold for someone—for any number of reasons. It's also appropriate considering the subject, so I apologize in advance if this isn't what you're looking for, and thank those of you who have always made this platform feel like a place where people can say what they're feeling.

  • Portal to Hell!!!

    Portal to Hell!!!

    ★★★★

    There's an undeniable poignancy in Roddy giving the finger to the ultimate unknown—as threatened by the cosmic inconceivable (that squid sack, Cthulhu)—in this endearing crowdfunded Canadian short released the same year that we sadly lost him. Granted, as is the case with most contemporary films featuring wrestlers-turned-actors, this has the feel of someone playing with an action figure, but whereas WWE's in-house stuff can be sort of soulless, this is like visiting your parents' place and finding your favorite toy…

    Auntie Lee's Meat Pies

    ★★★½

    Now when someone asks me why I'm vegan—if it's for environmental, ethical, or health reasons—I'm just going to whisper, "Auntie Lee's pies..." and stare off into space.

    What a grody little flick, playing like a porn parody of Texas Chainsaw 2 if partway through production, the director leapt up from his chair, threw his little beret in the dirt, and exclaimed, "I never wanted to be a pornographer, I wanted to be a goremeister!" and proceeded to shoot something that…

    Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School

    ★★★

    An '80s flick about a dude moving into an all-girls boarding school to coach the volleyball team sounds like it'd be a powder keg of problematic shit, but it's actually a Scooby-Doo movie, and an alright one at that.

    I want the iron maiden torture device juicer that one kid uses.

    Some of the most bonkers, dumbo, wonderful shit I've ever seen, and I hope it spawns its own 8-film universe.

    I did not expect two horror jams (Seance being the other) to have my favorite fight scenes of the year, but here we are. Motherfuckin' mulleted Zoë Bell even features in this one, playing a character named "Scorpion," for chrissake, and we're trying to pretend this isn't at least a 4-star flick? Wan cranks this baby into the stratosphere, delivering…

    Night of the Demons

    ★★★★

    Growing up, my Halloweens were always cast in the Bradbury mold, sort of like what you see playing out in the background of this film: kids in costumes with pillow cases full of spoils and nary a care in the world hurrying through the dark; parents' paper decorations, afforded the added mystique of age, dancing in the wind; and televisions broadcasting strange seasonal animation, like signals from another world only able to be received on this night. Even into my…
