    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★

    Bigger, badder, and more kinetic follow-up to the original classic does a magnificent job at expanding upon the story and characters, even going as far as working on its own terms well enough that seeing the original isn't even necessary. Relentless in its action and set pieces.

    The Terminator

    ★★★★½

    The finest picture James Cameron has ever made. A perfect example of reckless, low-budget filmmaking. Thrilling, brutal, and gutwrenching. The police station sequence is perhaps one of the most insane sequences I've seen in any action movie to date. Schwarzenegger is absolutely chilling as a literal killing machine who slaughters his way through countless innocent people to achieve his goal. Features one of the greatest sex scenes I've seen in a genre picture.

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★½

    Flawlessly directed and crafted odyssey about the horrors of war. Apocalypse Now is an intoxicating experience that will haunt you. Tremendous use of superimposition. The sound design is especially very strong. The imagery here reaches absurd levels of technical feat. The final act of the picture is definitely challenging for a number of reasons, not all of them good. The way it is all executed though is unlike anything I've seen. All in all, a tremendous picture. I highly recommend checking out the latest release as it is exquisite.

    Come and See

    ★★★★★

    An unrelenting nightmare vision that is both agonzingly horrific and technically profound. Easily one of the most ear-shattering, soul-breaking pictures I've ever seen. Highly mature about the manner in which it depicts its images, Come and See captures a type of psychological void that you rarely see.
