Directed by: John Erick Dowdle

It's moderately fun but its clear that the only reason it was shot as a found footage film is because it was the easiest way considering the cramped locations. When shooting found footage you kind of have to play by the rules and this film throws out all of those rules almost immediately and having that happen throughout most of the film is distracting to say the least. On the plus side, there's some cool scenes (even if they don't work for found footage) and its entertaining enough throughout. The pacing is pretty rough too as it really just feels like just non-stop shit happening.

There's some really fun and wacky bits but I feel like I should have liked this more. Seems to be a trend with me and Oshima's work. Bonus points for that amazing song in it though.

Directed by: Justin Barber

I know people rag on the found footage genre all the time but I still genuinely think there's a lot of interesting things that can be done with it. Now, saying this was an interesting film might be a bit of a stretch but it did have a lot of positive aspects. I thought the presentation was good and its fairly well paced and the filler never feels like filler which is pretty often the case with these. While I don't think it was effective as a horror movie I do commend the restraint shown to not throw in any fake scares or even a single jump scare. This actually felt like someone tried instead of just being shit out by a studio.

Roma (1972)
09/26/17

Directed by: Federico Fellini

The whole film is really solid but there's also more than a handful of absolute masterclass scenes, in particular the variety show scene might be one of my all time favourites. Fellini is quite possibly the best ever.

mother! (2017)
09/25/17

Directed by: Darren Aronofsky

I really don't know who this film is for. The entire film is allegory but its just so on the nose that there's nothing interesting for anyone following it and the narrative doesn't stand on its own so there's nothing there for anyone not picking up on the allegory. The best thing I can say about it is that it passed the time well enough.

As much as I appreciate the music choices not being uber popular songs (Guardians of the Galaxy) and the music gimmick itself is a lot less obnoxious than I was expecting but the film was just kind of boring and not memorable despite being generally well-made.

Shirome (2010)

Directed by: Koji Shiraishi

So basically they just actually took idol group Momoiro Clover Z on a haunted house tour and built a movie around it and it completely feels like it. Its certainly not effective in anyway but its short and the girls are charming enough to carry it.

This certainly continues the trend of Shiraishi's traditional horror movies paling in comparison to his found-footage style films. Its still a passable film despite some major logic issues and its not bogged down with the typical, drawn-out research and/or detective work sequences that tend to plague this genre though that does makes it feel a tad underdeveloped.
