    The Stranglers of Bombay

    ★★★½

    Loosely based on the stories of the Thuggee from India, The Stranglers of Bombay is one of the more nuanced pictures from Hammer Productions. Its depiction of India and it's people when subjected by the British is not totally accurate and paints the Indians as a savage group of people who follow "false" gods. Thankfully the stereotypes in this film are not as blatant as other Hammer films so it never becomes a distracting factor.

  • Vampire Circus

    Vampire Circus

    ★★½

    A movie where the title tells you everything you need to know about the film.

    It's a classic vampire story, but with circus stuff thrown in and it's...fine. The movie starts off fun and engaging but by the one hour mark, the movie stops and just flounders around showing kinda weird circus stunts that don't even happen in front of the camera. The movie could have been around 75min and would have been paced perfectly, but it wastes a lot of time doing nothing.

    Nothing too scary, but you get some tits, blood, and fangs so what more can you ask from a movie like this.

    ★★½

    The best sequels make waves.

    I want to say first that I will be criticizing this film for a lot of things…

    Fullmetal Alchemist

    Look I'll be frank. This was amateur hour. From the acting, story, cinematography, cgi, action scenes, etc. I don't really know why this had to be made. It feels like it was filmed by someone who just graduated film school and was taught to never use dollies. There was so much handheld camera work it feels lazy. I really can't iterate enough how bad the cinematography is. Framing and camera movement is so horrendous. It feels like they rushed through…
