Movie review of the 1953 Japanese classic by Ozu. Enjoy!
This is my review of the classic horror and psychological thriller Silence of the Lambs. Despite its transphobic elements dealing with Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine), Jonathon Demme’s academy award for best picture winning film is legitimately great. Jody Foster as young FBI recruit Clarice Starling and Anthony Hopkins as phsycopathic ex psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer/inmate Hannibal Lecter are electric. Watch the review just to see how this film holds up.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (or Kingsman 2) is the sequel to the 2014 box office hit Kingsman: The Secret Service. Directed by Mathew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kick Ass, and Stardust), Kingsman as a franchise is an ode to classic over the top and gadget heavy james bond style British spy thrillers that imbues the England’s favorite style of genre film with an R-Rated edge (cursing, hyper violence, and a controversial sex scene in Glastonbury all included).
The movie follows a young man named Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and tech wizard Merlin (Mark Strong), and has an impressive cast of Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry, and Colin Firth. The Kingsman are destroyed by a drug cartel called The Golden Circle, and Eggsy travels to the United States to seek the help of Kingsman’s U.S./American equivalent (cousins) called the Statesman.
Check to see whether it’s good or bad in my review (though I will forewarn you, there isn’t an action scene as good as the controversial Westboro Baptist Church massacre sequence.
Mother! (or mother!) is the new psychological horror film by Darren Aronofsky that stars his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence, sexy as hell Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Kristen Wiig (yes, really). This dark and insane thriller has divided audiences: you either love this movie as a masterpiece in allegorical filmmaking, or you absolutely hate this film. This isn’t much news for Aronofsky who has directed other polarizing films such as Black Swan, Noah, Pi, Requiem For A Dream, and The Wrestler. Whatever you think of the film, rest comfortably knowing my review above is the definitive criticism for the divisive auteur’s latest offering.
