yeah I saw them there last week, so I'm going to have to pick them up. I'm at a stand still right now because one episode seems really epic from synopsis but is no where online. cliffhanger until I buy them haha

The Fallen Idol (1948)



Carol Reed (The Third Man) directs this Hitchcockian thriller with delicate hands and a careful eye, hiding chilling treasures in rewarding places. Told through the eyes of a child, a murder-mystery unfolds with strange realism in a setting where the actual murder is the least of the issues and begins to unpeel the innocence of a young boy as he is taught lessons of imperfection and horror in forceful precision.

Highly recommended.

the fall (2006)

wow, what a blast!
a fantastical, humorous, and touching story that plays out in both fantasy and reality.
solid acting and an excellent story provide a strong foundation upon which stunning visuals and gorgeous compositions are layered, and layered, and layered.

my problem with the cell was that while it looked fantastic, the story was kind of lame. really nothing there other than an incredible look. it always felt very hollow.
however, tarsem singh got it right this time, in a big way.

in my opinion, one of the best new films i've seen this year.
highly recommended!

Stuck

Stuart Gordon is an amazing director, his last few films King Of The Ants and Edmond really impressed me but this tops them. A very dark film and one of the best I've seen this year. If you dug Before The Devil Knows You're Dead this will be right up your alley. Masterful American cinema. See it A.S.A.P

Bad Boys

One of Sean Penn's best performances. This is a killer teen crime/prison flick that gets overlooked these days. Gritty, well written with a really great cast including Ally Sheedy. Rick Rosenthal directed Halloween II which is my personal favorite of the sequels. He also the directed worst (Halloween: Resurrection) but don't let that put you off. Like I said earlier this is KILLER!

Manson

Laurence Merrick and Robert Hendrickson's 1973 documentary is a chilling account of the Manson murders. It gives a insight to "The Family" that's every bit as creepy as a horror film. One of the most fascinating documentaries I've seen. This is most definitive chronicle of Manson you'll get. Essential!
