2022-01-11 Starship Troopers 1997 6/5 Paul Verhoeven makes a perfect distillation of American jingoism and glorification of war… It is basically the War on Terror in Space, given by clairvoyance years before reality.
2022-01-16 Superuomini Superdonne Superbotte 1974 4/5 Italian comedy (Bud Spencer-like) meets kung-fu meets fantasy… What not to love? With slightly more budget and a better director it could be a classic.
2022-01-23 eXistenZ 1999 3/5 Weird and confusing existential and body horror movie.
2022-01-30 The Warrior and The Sorceress 1984 4/5 David Carradine plays Kain a sour holy warrior in a fantasy remake of Yojimbo.
2022-02-03 The Masque of the Red Death 1965 4/5 People suffer, nobles party, the Red Death makes everyone equal. …and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.
2022-02-12 TerrorVision 1986 5/5 Cult comedy horror movie where a space monster comes via TV signals to eat a weird American family. I really enjoyed the intentional trash and the ending.
2022-04-25 Tom & Jerry 2021 3/5 Jerry makes home in a gigantic hotel, Tom is hired to hunt it. Wanton chaos ensues. Really fun.
2022-04-25 Tom and Jerry: Robin Hood and His Merry Mouse 2012 4/5 Another retell of the classic, with Tom and Jerry in it. Works unexpectedly well.
2022-09-15 (Series) Extraordinary Attorney Woo 2022 5/5 Great legal drama/comedy, the overarching theme is that law and justice are different and each episode gives something to think or smile about.
2022-10-15 (Series) Go Back 2017 4/5 A couple on the brink of divorce mysteriously go back in time when they first meet. In that weird but familiar setting understand what went wrong.
2022-10-31 The Thing 1982 6/5 A parasitic alien being ate and replaces scientists in a isolated arctic base. Creepy and well done paranoia inducting horror movie.
2022-11-02 Ivan Vasilievich: Back to the Future 1973 5/5 A really funny movie where an inventor by mistake brings Ivan the terrible in modern times and drops two friends in the past…
2022-11-12 Falling for Christmas 2022 3/5 Funny Christmas movie with the usual themes of happiness in the simple things. Nothing new, but enjoyable.
2022-11-12 High School Ghosthustlers 1995 2/5 Ghostbusters + Japanese Highschoolers + mikos → this movie.
2022-11-13 Nosferatu - The First Vampire 1922 3/5 The oldest surviving Dracula Orlok movie. It is a silent black-and-white movie, still quite creepy.
2022-11-14 The Pit and the Pendulum 1961 4/5 To steal his fortune a wife gaslight his husband… it goes horribly right.
2022-10-15 The Lift 1983 3/5 The killer elevator movie. Kinda boring, but few points are really creepy.
2022-11-18 The Shadow of the Vampire 2000 4/5 What if Orlok was such a creepy vampire because… he is one? The story of an obsessed director that want to make the ultimate symphony of horror.
2022-11-28 Bram Stoker's Dracula 1992 4/5 Coppola's retelling of the classic story. It give quite eerie, gothic, and surreal vibes and it quite entertaining.
And who does not appreciate a surreal orgy with Keanu Reeve and Monica Bellucci?
