Look at their eyes...

Clearly one of the best films I have seen in a long time. Original story, great performances and plenty of brutal violence. What more can you ask for?  The key thing in this movie is that the violence is part of the whole story, and not gratuitous. Definitely worth a revisit in the future.

Rating: 9/10

Ho Ho Ho

I thought I had seen this before, but I was wrong. All in all, I found this to be a very effective thriller. Though some call it slow paced, I think it is paced nicely, and the suspense toward the end is right on. I was slightly disappointed by the ending, and wonder how inept those cops must have been to miss out on some critical "evidence" in the attic.

Regardless, I though this was a very good film, and worthy of it's cult status.

January Totals

It felt like more, but this is my summary for January. Pretty weak...

 9 New
 3 Rewatched*
12 Total

Hoping I can better these numbers in the short month of February.

* Rewatched includes a re-watch of SUNSHINE CLEANING, which I posted on in December, nut rewatched in January so the wife could see it.
