H2: Halloween II
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An improvement both visually and thematically, H2 seems to have a stronger grasp on its psychological leftovers of the first film but still spends time on disposable characters that engage in meaningless college-talk dialogue, sexual expression, and an acute lack of awareness. The final moments of the film suggest a hopeless journey but the follow up brings with it an appealing final showdown.

Halloween
Halloween (2007)
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The first of Zombie's Halloween remake attempts to create a veil of sympathy over the famed killer as a deranged, disturbed, and distanced boy with a longing for a lost mother. However, the shoddy dialogue, empty acting, and quick-to-kill pacing all water down the emotional impact the film needed in order to make its kills meaningful.

Doctor Strange
23 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

What is quite possibly the most bland Marvel film to date, Doctor Strange promised thrills that exceeded our psychology on several levels and delivers close to nothing. The jokes made between friends in a chatroom on the internet pass as full fledged jokes and scenes that drive the plot forward in this mess of a narrative. Characters are not taken seriously (jokes to replace raw, emotional reactions), the plot is hardly consequential, the themes are shorthanded, and the overall visual style is empty and indistinguishable from the other Marvel films.

Space Jam
Space Jam (1996)
23 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Space Jam tickles the dramatic effect with some appropriate gags and humour but contains enough salt that it doesn't get bitter. If only its narrative were slightly more involving, then again, it knows exactly what it's selling and who's involved and it does it in a really fun and funny way.

Day for Night
Day for Night (1973)
23 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There are few films that adequately depict the lifestyle and philosophy of filmmaking by transposing it with a "realistic" narrative and Truffaut could not be replaced by anyone better to do such a fantastic job. Everything from the cuts to the frames are descriptive and involving.
