Title Year Seen Rating
Under the Volcano 1984 21 Oct 20 Rated 6
Somewhat uneven. Finney, however,  is incredible in this slow motion descent into the alcoholic abyss.
Shoot to Kill 1988 20 Oct 20 Rated 6
Decent manhunt thriller. No major surprises but perfectly watchable.
Southern Comfort 1981 18 Oct 20 Rated 6
Tense and atmospheric despite the continually dumb choices made by the protagonists. Then again, the current pandemic seems to be proof that dumb choices might actually be the norm.
Hot Rod 2007 18 Oct 20 Rated 4
As far as kids wanting to fight their dads go, I'll take Freddy got fingered over this forgettable thing.
The Story of Plastic 2019 17 Oct 20 Rated 9
I thought plastic was disastrous, it's worse. It's a calamity from extraction to (lack of) disposal. There is hope though, and it comes from the smallest gestures. This should be mandatory viewing.
Crystal Swan 2018 16 Oct 20 Rated 8
The classic tale of dreams clashing with reality. Elevated by cast and context. Truly beautiful. Extra thumbs up for dropping CJ Bolland's The 4th sign into the story.
Reversal of Fortune 1990 15 Oct 20 Rated 7
Perverse and ambiguous legal drama that keeps you curious throughout. The movie Dershowitz seems a hell of a lot nicer than the real one.
I'm Thinking of Ending Things 2020 10 Oct 20 Rated 4
Charlie Kaufman endlessly walks the same road gazing with fear into the eyes of time.
No Way to Treat a Lady 1968 9 Oct 20 Rated 6
Unusual comedy-thriller mix about mother issues. Manages to work despite the uneven tone.
Save Yourselves! 2020 9 Oct 20 Rated 7
Sharp little social commentary built off sci-fi and horror tropes. Great leads.
