  • Tigers Are Not Afraid

    Tigers Are Not Afraid

    ★★★★★

    This is an angry picture. Drug cartels have left a whole generation of children without any parents or any hope for their future. Estrella is a young girl of about 12 years old and the latest left motherless and fending for herself in Mexico city. She encounters a group of kids who become her immediate family. The girl wishes to bring her mother back and her mom's killers straight to hell. A movie that demands justice, blood for blood from…

  • Deadly Hero

    Deadly Hero

    ★★★★

    A cop with a history of police brutality is hailed as a hero after violently solving a kidnapping situation. He's applauded, celebrated, the guy running for mayor even wants him on his campaign. The victim, a female cellist and teacher is at first thankful then she's stalked and finally hunted by the "hero" cop after she changes her statement about how the kidnapping thing went down. Way ahead of its time. This is an underrated, mostly forgotten 70s cop film with some splashes of horror. Don Murray and Diahn Williams are both fantastic in their roles. It's on Prime. Check it.

  • Belzebuth

    Belzebuth

    ★★★★

    A couple of grisly child murders with satanic connotations take place right at the Mexican American border. A grieving Mexican cop teams up with an American agent trying to figure it out. The theory is that a demon is behind it all. The great Joaquin Cosio is the Mexican cop and he's just terrific in the role. Really well made, the twists and turns are horrific and are inventive and creative every time. Tobin Bell also shines as a tattooed,…

  • The Golden Glove

    The Golden Glove

    ★★★★

    Hamburg, Germany. 1970. A fuckin cretin named Fritz Honka spends his days between his smelly, filthy apartment and a local bar called The Golden Glove. At the bar there's just a bunch of down and out atomic boozers, prostitutes and just plain old sad, bombarded souls drinking the nights and days away. Fritz is obsessed with pornography and banging old hookers, he's also a sexual sadist and killer. This movie is a vomitorium of a movie. A sick, reprehensible, absolute rotten film. It's a true story by the way. And it's also very good. For sick sonsofbitches only.

  • Cactus Flower

    Cactus Flower

    ★★★½

    Goldie won an Oscar in her big screen debut! First swing, she wins it. She's Toni Simmons. A ditzy blonde young woman that's in love with an older man. Walter Matthau is the lucky bastard. Screwball comedy that's really funny. It was a simpler time, sexual harassment was cute, leaving kids alone eating ice cream while you go into the store across the street was all right, dancing had dumb names like the hustle, the dentist, the boogaloo, mink stoles swept women off their feet and were not splashed with red paint. Silly comedy, expertly written, directed and performed.

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Goddamn! This movie was just a pleasure to watch. Its a dark worldview of family, wealth, socioeconomic bullcrap and all that stuff. Impressive the swift hand of director Bong Joon Ho. Funny and a ridiculous level of suspense that's almost unbearable. Winner at the Cannes film festival, no shit?! A masterpiece.

  • Shéhérazade

    Shéhérazade

    ★★★★½

    Zach is a young guy just out of juvie. Scheherazade is a young prostitute from the suburbs of Marseilles, France. They're a lost generation, the sons of mostly Muslim immigrants who arrived in France with dreams of success. For some of these kids a life of crime seems like the only way out to make ends meet. By chance Zach starts to work the girl as a pimp but inevitably starts to develop feelings for her. They both keep getting…

  • 47 Meters Down: Uncaged

    47 Meters Down: Uncaged

    ★★★½

    After the surprise hit that was 47 Meters Down a couple of years ago of course Roberts had to do a part two. But Roberts is not gonna do a lame cash grab sequel. Hes not that kind of director. He gets rid of the cage, plunges four girls underwater and doubles down on shark kills and the desperation for survival. It makes horror movie sense. What I mean is the situation where the girls find themselves makes sense in…

  • School Spirit

    School Spirit

    ★★★

    From the Into the Dark series. This one is a group of kids on detention and a masked killer gets them one by one. The kids are likable enough, Mr. Armstrong is a hoot and the gore is good. A high school slasher. Nothing mindblowing, nothing bad either.

  • The Unknown Girl

    The Unknown Girl

    ★★★

    The Dardennes brothers crafted another hard edged story of city life like they usually do. Here we have a socially conscious young female doctor that's obsessed into finding out what happened to a young woman who knocked on her office's door and later found dead. It's not the best out of the Dardennes nor the worst.

  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    Tarantino's bloody love letter to not so old Hollywood. It's a story of friendship between a tv actor going through a tough time and his buddy-stunt double. Pitt and Leo are both fantastic as Cliff Booth and Rick Dalton. Living next to Roman Polanski and the beautiful late actress Sharon Tate they're bound to meet members of the most infamous hippie commune the world has ever known, the Manson family. It's the groove that Tarantino creates that I most loved in this picture. I was smiling the whole time, singing along with the soundtrack, just having a groovy old time.
