  • 3 from Hell

    3 from Hell

    ★★★

    Pretty laid-back for Zombie. I hardcore dig the 70s aesthetic, but I do wish the kills were less repetitive. Overall, 3 From Hell is mostly enjoyable, the hammy dialogue being the most fun. Three stars for "the three". Maybe I'm just not feeling too generous, but I did consider another half-star. *shrug*

    Brittany Runs a Marathon

    ★★★½

    Aside from issues I had with some of the dialogue and cuts that felt out of place, between scenes, I enjoyed this quite a lot. The progression of the story wasn't as formulaic as I was expecting, which I would consider a positive. And I walked away feeling uplifted. No, not enough to go train for a marathon, but I guess watching this when I did was appropriate timing; I needed a watch like this. I just won't be in a hurry for a rewatch.

    Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

    ★★★★½

    Allow me to keep this short and sweet. I was not content bypassing this screening and waiting for the home-release and had to see this one as soon as an opportunity presented itself. And for a fan of the quirky, kitschy Adam West series, attending was well worth my time and money. Money I'll spend again on hopefully a Blu Ray featuring some sort of collector-appreciated flair. All that really needs to be said is that the script is 60s…

    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    ★★★★½

    I'm sad to have passed on this for so long. Earlier this morning, I saw a tribute to the film on my Instagram feed and just that brief supercut served as the final push. I trudged over to my closest Best Buy, because I knew their bargain bin held a copy or two. It was worth every penny and then some, truly an assuring hug to warm my cinephile soul.
