  • mother!

    Aronofsky does Rosemary’s Baby. Requiem for a Dream of pregnancy.

  • Dark City

    A companion piece to The Matrix, but with a noir aesthetic. Sleeep!

  • Man of Steel

    Goddamn clusterfuck of pieces of plot strewn together randomly. They credited an editor, but it’s just a pseudonym for BlendTec.

  • O Pai Tirano

    One of the representatives of golden age of Portuguese cinema, it’s still hilarious. There’s an overarching plot of silliness and hilarious smaller bits which betrays its origin as vaudeville-esque popular theatre (known as revista).

  • Mission: Impossible III

    I fell asleep thrice while watching this.

  • Akira

    Damn radical. Part of the holy trinity of classical anime: this, Ghost in the Shell (1995) and Cowboy Bebop.

  • The Fifth Element

    A supreme being. Perfect.

  • Insurgent

    Hungrier Potter: Revolutions.

  • Wrongfully Accused

    Yet another Airplane!.

  • Cube

    High concept horror film without a budget. Focuses on the dynamics between characters. Blows Saw off the water.

  • Divergent

    Hunger Potter: A Twilight Fan Fiction.

  • Mission: Impossible 2

    John Woo decides Face/Off was too sane.

  • Abandon

    The Rules of Attraction as a reluctant thriller.

  • Dark Water

    Psycho (1960) thriller, Qu’est-ce que c’est? Na na na na na na na na not bad at all.

  • Pushing Tin

    Aren’t air traffic controllers wacky?

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    This is a Bond film as directed by Tarantino, which leads to a black hole of bad taste. At least the villain is interessting.

  • A Perfect Getaway

    A thriller that cheats.

  • Mission: Impossible

    This film has two sides clawing for attention. On one side you have the goofy, Get Smart-like spy parody, on the other the serious spy drama, with double and triple agents, deception and remote-controlled car bombs.
