    Jack Nicholson is the only man in the world who can wear a huge band-aid on his nose and still be the coolest guy in the room!

    Horatio The Fastest Duck in the City deserved an Oscar nomination, or at least his own movie franchise.

    Justice for Horatio!

    The scariest thing in this anthology movie is Mickey Rourke's face. What the hell is happening to that guy?

    The Thing in the Woods (D: Alejandro Brugués):
    This segment is the most fun of the six. It has an '80s slasher movie style and doesn't take itself too seriously.

    Mirare (D: Joe Dante):

    I can appreciate what a cinematic achievement this film is; I loved the cinematography, the score and production design ... but that's about it. I didn't care for the story or like any of the characters. In fact, I couldn't stand Scarlett O'Hara and watching her in every scene for four hours was not enjoyable.

    This is one of the four films I list as my favorites on my profile.Apart from a slightly questionable performance by Brad Pitt, this film is perfect in my opinion.

    The opening credits set the tone perfectly with some extremely disturbing images set to a remix of the song Closer by Nine Inch Nails. From then on the film plunges the audience into a world of darkness and absolute depravity. The final scene is simply unforgettable.

    Us is not a movie for people who need every plot detail explained and the premise spelled out and easily understood. Sometimes things don‘t need to make sense to be enjoyed. Sometimes it‘s more fun to have things open to interpretation and speculation.
