The Dark Crystal   9/12/21

The movie is labeled as dark fantasy, which I think fits given the subject matter and how revolting the villains are - especially during the dinner scene - but it still manages to be adorable and funny and at just the right times.

The Philadelphia Experiment   9/10/21
by Torgo
A movie that could be described as Back to the Future before Back to the Future - it even has a joke about Ronald Reagan being the president - The Philadelphia Experiment is not the classic that that movie is, but it has enough going for it to make it worth checking out.

Pig   8/16/21
by Torgo
This is a very good movie that, if anything, deserves credit for using a simple story - a hermit, truffle hunter and former master chef (Cage), Robin, searches for his lost pig - to reflect the state of late '10s/early '20s life.

Trespass   8/12/21

The movie's style makes it a relic of its time, especially in its use of camcorder footage courtesy of aptly named audience surrogate gangster Video (T.E.

Torn Curtain   8/01/21

The whole time, I couldn't care about whether Michael and Sarah would make it, so I was left examining what makes the sequence successful and how it compares to similar ones in other Hitchcock spy movies as if I were in a screenwriting class.
