A movie about zombies by one of the coolest filmmakers out there, starring a ton of people I like, should be a slam dunk, but then…what if it isn’t?
A stunning, low key bit of animation from a descendant of unspeakable atrocity. Amazingly, he’s up to speaking about it.
You got your body horror in my psychological thriller! Except that it’s all horror, even when it’s too over-written for its own good. Pft.
Finally, what we’ve all been asking for this year: A doppelganger movie that isn’t distinctly a horror movie, and also doesn’t really stick to a single genre, either.
One of the most under-appreciated filmmakers in the world has released what’s already looking like her most-appreciated film, and Andy has mixed thoughts. (On the reaction to the film, not the film itself.)
Upfront: This movie is about sex. My review of this movie is about sex. Everything is about sex. It’s necessary to get that out of the way to numb your delicate prudish American sensibilities.
An instructional film about what to do when you’re alone on a mountain overlook and there’s a corpse and possibly also a ghost or a bear.
Let’s go back to an oldie but a goodie by discussing a newbie that is also a goodie! And also a grossie!
A movie about Insane Clown Posse, except the good news is that you don’t have to like Insane Clown Posse to enjoy or even understand the movie! Luck you.
Watch as Andy makes the likely ill-advised move of taking a potshot at one of 2018’s most beloved movies by holding it to a standard it was never interested in meeting!
Can a movie made in 1990 that’s only just now being released in theaters REALLY be called a 1990 movie? Maybe. But also maybe not. How about both? Either way, it’s a damn masterpiece.
A free association (sort of) visual essay documentary film about Jamaica in 2019, Jamaica in the 1800s, and how the latter has shaped the former into a land of beautiful contradictions.
Happy “Captain Marvel” weekend! In the first of Andy’s *three pieces* about the new Marvel movie, an appreciation for Brie Larson and her fondness of baked goods and weight training, and how all of that hard work (and not hard work) reflects on the screen.
Don’t let the list of very long, nigh-unpronouncable Icelandic names overwhelm or intimidate you away from seeing this excellent Icelandic dark comedy. (“Dark comedy” in Iceland is kinda like easy viewing, though.)
Sometimes you pay (literally, you, not me) to see a movie, and you get exactly what the title promises. Take “The Hole in the Ground.” It’s about a hole. In the ground. Boom, value.
Alternative tagline for this movie’s poster: “U Look Like A Monkey / And U Die Like 1 2.” You can have that for free. Wait, no: Royalties.
Matt Walsh as a leading man in a rom-com? It’s an idea so crazy it might just work, except that the movie in question only barely gets there with plot and story.
It took Peter Jackson over a decade, but he finally made a movie to match, and even outclass, his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy – a documentary about World War I, made as only a guy like Jackson could make it.
