    What We Do in the Shadows

    ★★★★½

    This is one of the most purely enjoyable comedies I've ever seen. It thoroughly deconstructs the lore of vampires while constructing some of the most memorable comedic characters in recent memory. I can't recommend this enough.

    Them

    ★★★★

    Short, sweet, and to the point. Them is about 70 minutes of intense cinematic terror that's worth watching if you consider yourself a horror fan. This is my first film of the French Extreme Horror movement and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I enjoyed the unrelenting pace of the action and the use of sound to add a layer of fear.

    ★★★

    That was the most inspiring shower scene ever.

    I like baseball, and I like movies, so it makes sense that I generally enjoy baseball movies. 42 sounded like a promising way to get my cinematic baseball fix. It had a great cast, a sizable budget, and was telling the story of Jackie Robinson. So what could go wrong? Brian Helgeland... Now Helgland can be really good (Mystic River, LA Confidential, or Man on Fire) and he can be really bad…

    Perfect Blue

    ★★★★½

    One of the all time most horrifying movies ever. Satoshi Kon perfectly blends realities into a swirling pool of paranoia and insanity and truly makes the audience question what is really happening to the characters and what is in their mind.

    Kon is one of the greatest directors of all time, and this nearly masterpiece was his first feature length movie. I highly recommend it to anyone out there.
