I love Willard, its like the character was created for Crispin Glover (unless you picked up the first adaptation, in that case I shall shut up). I rate it next to Bartleby as my joint favourite Crispin Glover performance.
Recently arrived is:
: A fairly weak and poorly directed "monster" movie about a genetically mutated giant frog that needs to mate with as many human women as possible to stay alive, while being tracked down by a "sexy" lesbian EPA operative. The story is pretty weak, it takes itself too seriously to have fun with the premise and the caliber of acting talent. Its still a reasonably fun attempt at modern exploitative cinema, while it does miss most of its markers, it does hit a few targets.
A History Of Violence
: I thoroughly enjoyed Cronenberg's adaptation of this graphic novel, although his trademark direction seems to have descended into direction by the numbers. While it still contains talented direction, it isn't of the standard we expect from one the great directors of recent times.
(Region 1 uncut version of Braindead): No need for any sort of review here. If you haven't seen it, shame on you.
Also arrived is Maniac, after I rewatch it I might post a review. But you shouldn't really need one.
