    Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon

    ★★★

    pretty smart, but maybe not as smart as it thinks it is.. still if you like slashers this is definitely something to check out.
    The documentary style mixed with actual film clips moving in and out was a brilliant idea. Unfortunately, with the 3rd act this kind of falls apart, and it just becomes a standard slasher which was a disappointment.

    There's a lot of great humour throughout, however some of the "deconstructionist" parts are a little on the nose.

    Nice small roles by Robert Englund and Zelda Rubinstein.

    All in all I really liked it and give it a solid recommendation.

    Uptown Girls

    ★★★

    Starts off pretty shakily, but around the 30 minute mark it picks up and there's about 10-15 minutes of really good movie here; mostly around the one hour mark, and dealing with the relationship between Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning. That's the heart of the movie.
    There's also a lot of predictable crap; in fact that's the majority of the film.
    But did it win me over in the end? Maybe so, maybe so.

    ★★★½

    Pretty well made movie, but the main character is literally Hitler.

  • Inception

    Inception

    ★★★★★

    Despite the opinions of one Lights Camera Jackass , who states that the film is way too "complicated" for him, anyone with a hint of actual intelligence must admit that Inception is, in fact, pretty fucking great.
