Psychological Thriller

Glass

Glass

God only knows what possessed me to want to finish this Shymalan trilogy. I alone seemed to like Unbreakable back in the day. And then finally got around to seeing the...
Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper

If you like Kristen Stewart, you’re gonna love Personal Shopper. Personally, the only thing I’ve seen her in is Panic Room, a movie in which she was twelve. She was...
Unsane

Unsane

Steven Soderbergh, the man behind the Ocean’s movies and all sorts of other commercial-type stuff both decent and not as much, is now apparently an “experimental”...
Buster's Mal Heart

Buster’s Mal Heart

Buster's Mal Heart really goes for it. In that I mean it takes any number of indie film tropes from years past, mixes in biblical references, conspiracy, mystery, sci-fi...
Trance

Trance

This movie is such an amazingly over-engineered pile of crap, it's shocking that Danny Boyle didn't Alan Smithee the shit out of it. Like drown it in the bathtub and...
The One I Love

The One I Love

First we start with this amazingly creepy poster. I mean, Duplass looks like a serial killer and Moss looks like some awful painting out of The Royal Tennenbaums. As it...
Stoker

Stoker

So apparently this movie was written by Wentworth Miller. Who, you ask, is that? Is it some duke or lord sitting in an English manor with his trusty hound by his side...
We Need to Talk About Kevin

We Need to Talk About Kevin

First off, we need to talk about the name Kevin. Nothing good ever came from that name. It's like asking for your son to be a psycho. And from moment one we know the...
Shutter Island

Shutter Island

Second rate schlock. I know it's almost not fair saying this about a film created by one of our best living directors, but in this case I gotta call a spade a spade. It's...
The Number 23

The Number 23

Do you ever watch a movie you just know is gonna suck? You ask yourself, "How bad could it really be?" The answer is: about this bad. One of the biggest issues the movie...
The Village

The Village

I must say that I was excited to see this one when the first trailers came out. It looked scary and suspenseful and smart. Unfortunately it ended up failing on all three...
Suspect Zero

Suspect Zero

Absolute zero. A horrible, second-rate psycho killer story about an ex-military remote-viewer (Kingsley) who is tracking serial killers, while becoming a serial killer...
Taking Lives

Taking Lives

Not even a nude sex scene with Angelina Jolie can boost this stinker above one star. Shit, I'd give Gia an extra star just for her taking off her top and trying to grind...
Secret Window

Secret Window

Oh, Jesus. The second you see John Turturro in that Amish getup, you know this movie is gonna suck. Plus, we know Stephen King struck gold with Misery, but did anyone...
Identity

Identity

This one's going to be tough to bust on without giving away a large part of the plot "twist." Mind you, this twist sounds suspiciously like something my friends and I...
Vanilla Sky

Vanilla Sky

Rating:  Where to start. Let's start at the beginning--or is it the ending? Am I dreaming or am I awake? Am I maimed or am I still a matinee idol? I wi...
Frailty

Frailty

Rating:  Good idea. Poor execution. It's so sad when a movie that seems to have all the potential in the world goes down the tubes. From the first minu...
Memento

Memento

Rating:  This is the first movie I have written about on this site that I have given the coveted five-star stamp of approval. I'm a huge fan of origina...
