I liked Kill Bill Part 2 much more than Part 1. Centered on storytelling and characterization more, and wrapped things up nicely. Part 1 was very cloying in its long, interminable action sequences.

Sometimes the movie IS better than the book though. The Warriors (1979) is clearly superior to the novel it's based on for example.

The House That Jack Built (2018) is brilliant, with some fine pitch black comedy that had me roaring with laughter. I have nothing more to say, except… WATCH IT!

Donnie Darko is one of those movies, like Watchmen, that I really enjoyed first time I saw it but in the second viewing (usually the director's cuts) I wondered why I thought it was so great. As you…

I liked RUNE FACTORY 2 because it belied the notion that jRPGs are simplistic, puerile and easy. There was a well-hidden area right under your nose you needed to access to enter the end game that…

Down to my last episode of The Haunting of Hill House. Is this a limited 1-season only series? Gee, I hope so. Or at least make it a seasonal anthology series like the much inferior American…

I like Toni Colette a lot so it was fun to see her really go crazy in Hereditary. I felt that some of the humor was kind of sly, like:
