White Dog (1982) and Homicide (1991) dual review, and the issue of race

There will be spoilers for both films. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-MKWPq55b1uo/UMYwHdYOiMI/AAAAAAAAN80/b8bTb7-PaLk/s1600/poster+whitedog+2.jpg Rated: 3.5 / 5 I have to admit, the 80s to the early 90s continue to impress me. The most interesting of their films tend to have a lot of grey in their morals and themes, rather than making a pure black and white picture (assuming we're … Continue reading White Dog (1982) and Homicide (1991) dual review, and the issue of race

Films for the #BLM Looters and Rioters

You know, I try. I really try. I try to avoid hopping on the bandwagon of current events this heavily. I don't like getting caught up in them. I may take a small jab at them here and there when I review some film or show or game or something (maybe even using the said … Continue reading Films for the #BLM Looters and Rioters

The International (2009) review

https://sisterrose.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/the-international-movie-poster-12.jpg Rated: 4 / 5 "The truth means responsibility!""Exactly! Which is why everyone dreads it!" Films like these are how I know cinema didn't truly start dying until at least 2012. Sure there were the signs of decay with the unofficial banning (official blacklisting) of The Path to 9/11, but that was Disney being censorious … Continue reading The International (2009) review

Favorite Movie Shootout Scenes

Title should be self evident. These are my favorite shootouts in film history. And by shootouts, I mean there needs to be bullets flying everywhere and decimating both the flesh and the walls/doors/cars/glass. And what is it about them that makes them the best? Well, if it makes me want to watch them more than … Continue reading Favorite Movie Shootout Scenes

Half-Drunk review of The Most Fucked Up Kid Flick Ever Made

Oh, who am I kidding?  I could probably gulp down a few more shots and just be fucking dandy.  I just re-experienced a fucked up kid flick from my childhood.  Back in the early … Continue reading Half-Drunk review of The Most Fucked Up Kid Flick Ever Made

The Long Walk Home (1991)

Rated: 1.5 / 5 So I made this review on IMDB, which is currently getting processed.  On the off-chance they're as bitchy as I've heard, and they terminate both it and my short-lived account, I'm putting it here.  On the chance that the review stays and my account doesn't get terminated, I'm keeping it up … Continue reading The Long Walk Home (1991)

Dreamscape (1984) and Inception (2010) dual review

DREAMSCAPE Rated: 3 / 5 INCEPTION Rated: 3.5 / 5 I've been having a hard time finding my mojo with spontaneously writing up film reviews, even for those I've recently seen.  I think it has something to do with this cocksucking Wuhan Chinese kung flu COVID (can operate vividly in death; I don't know, I'm … Continue reading Dreamscape (1984) and Inception (2010) dual review
