Gets in, gets bloody, and gets the hell out.

Split - Movie Review

Split - Movie ReviewOne of the few things more beguiling than an M. Night Shaymalan movie when the writer/director is at the top of his game, is the direction his career has taken over the last decade or so. He launched to meteoric heights back in the late ‘90s and early 00’s with The Sixth  ...

Band of the Hand (1986) - Blu-ray Review

Band of the Hand (1986) - Blu-ray ReviewThe odds of being remembered were never in Band of the Hand’s favor.  Most people only recall the explicit violence and the pop-minded title song that Dylan wrote and performed with The Heartbreakers.  I guess the odds never really mattered anyway as they were ...

The Killing of America (1981) - Blu-ray Review

The Killing of America (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewShocking. Poignant. Tear inducing.
