Scream, 2022 - ★★★
Watched on Sunday January 16, 2022.

This was a depressing experience but that’s not the movies fault. It held up a mirror and the reflection was disgustingly accurate.

Don't Look Up, 2021 - ★★★★

Return of the Living Dead Part II, 1988 - ★★
Watched on Friday October 29, 2021.

This movie was a pretty huge disappointment. The trailer and even the first half of the film were filled with intrigue that was unfortunately squandered by an incredibly thin and unsatisfying conclusion.

And if I see any more comparisons to Mulholland Dr. I’m going to explode.

Last Night in Soho, 2021 - ★★★

The Return of the Living Dead, 1985 - ★★★★
Watched on Tuesday October 26, 2021.

If only the movie were as good as the post-credits scenes.

Dawn of the Dead, 2004 - ★★★
If only the movie were as good as the post-credits scenes.

I remember seeing the news reports of the Heavens Gate group suicide. I was transfixed, unable to process why a group of people would choose to do something like this. It has popped into my mind over the years.

This documentary does an incredible job of shedding light on these people and the circumstances that led to their choice. In some ways it has given me closure, or at least some of the pieces I’ll need as I continue to process how someone could believe the way they did.

Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults, 2020 - ★★★★★

Halloween Kills, 2021 - ★★★★
Watched on Sunday October 17, 2021.

I don’t know…. There are a lot of 5 star reviews on here for a movie that’s far from perfect. Spoilers ahead…

Way too many useless characters or characters that only exist to serve as plot pieces.

Lauren is the one of the worst, there’s no justification for this character existing in this script. Why do they keep mentioning her father and then nothing ever comes of it?? And her suicide attempt??? No purpose whatsoever.

Pacino is awesome, DeNiro is awesome, so is Mann, but why are the imperfections ignored? The film is also easily 30 minutes too long.

Heat, 1995 - ★★★★
