I want to start this review off by stating I am a big fan of Steve Buscemi. His role as Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs is arguably the best and most engaging of the ensemble cast. His sleazy con man/thief Carl Showalter in Fargo is nothing short of brilliant. His understated yet engaging role as […]

Since its inception, Something Weird has championed paracinema legends such as Andy Milligan, Doris Wishman, Joe Sarno, Michael and Roberta Findlay, Zoltan G. Spencer, and […]

Baby Driver

| November 28, 2017

I’ve seen Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and The World’s End all about 20 times each, and given that I think that they’re all virtually perfect movies that illustrate everything that I love about film as an art form, it’s without a doubt that Edgar Wright is my favorite […]

Wonder

| November 25, 2017

When I write about movies that involve kids, I often feel obliged to discuss my resentment towards those little creatures that seem to telepathically gaslight adults into cuteness-fueled submission. However, I want to amend that by specifying that middle school kids are by far and away the ultimate scum of the earth, so Wonder really […]

If you’ve wondered if it’s possible to cringe yourself to death, Lemon, directed by Janicza Bravo and co-written by Bravo and Brett Gelman, is the indie comedy-drama for you! I’m writing to you from the afterlife, and I’m here to let you know that I died uneasily, curled up with my knees to my chest, […]

From the director of Our Children Joachim Fosse comes the story of Boris (Cédric Kahn) and Marie (Bérénice Bejo), a couple who have decided to separate after 15 years together. They have two girls that they adore, but tensions rise as cash-strapped Boris continues to live in the family home. Neither of the two is willing […]

George Romero Between Night and Dawn

| November 21, 2017

George A. Romero will undoubtedly always be best remembered as the director of Night of the Living Dead, one of the most influential horror films of the 20th century. Romero and his collaborators all but created the modern concept of the zombie in horror film, and his continuation of the “Dead” series with Dawn of […]

Misery: Collector’s Edition

| November 17, 2017

Film adaptations of Stephen King’s novels have historically been a pretty mixed bag. At their worst, they range from comically bad to simply dull. But at their best, Stephen King adaptations account for some of cinema’s most beloved masterpieces. You’ll find no shortage of folks who heap praise on Frank Darabont’s adaptations of The Shawshank […]

2 New to Blu: Satan’s Cheerleaders & Ruby

| November 17, 2017

Two cult horror films from 1977, Greydon Clark’s Satan’s Cheerleaders and Curtis Harrington’s Ruby, saw dual format Blu-ray/DVD releases from VCI Entertainment this fall. Now, these two titles are sold separately, yes. However, both happened to come into my possession at the exact same time and I tell you, Satan’s Cheerleaders and Ruby make all-too-much […]

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

| November 17, 2017

In my eyes, there are two types of people when it comes to grief: those who become angry and those who become sad. The flood of emotions in the aftermath of a tragedy is fascinating in how contradictory it can be in terms of one’s own personality as well as the persona they project upon […]
