Additionally, 4 brand-new reviews were published this week...
Don't Breathe (2016)
Don’t Breathe is perhaps the movie equivalent of a theme park attraction: designed to thrill you and scare you during its brief duration, not withstand plot and character scrutiny when dissected afterwards.Read more here.
Ghost in the Shell (2017)
this iteration of Ghost in the Shell creates a new narrative, but builds it out of liberally repurposed imagery, sequences, character traits, and more from the popular 1995 anime adaptation and its sequel, and apparently from the Stand Alone Complex TV series too... Though to say “new narrative” is something of a kindness because, intricacies aside, the story isn’t new at all.Read more here.
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (2004)
with technical advancements that aren’t necessarily beneficial, grander but less memorable action sequences, and less coherent thematic underpinnings, it’s clear that Hollywood doesn’t have the monopoly on sequel-y sequels.Read more here.
Tokyo Tribe (2014)
the mix of battle rap, comic grotesques, ultra violence, gratuitous nudity, more barmy notions than you can shake a stick at, and probably the kitchen sink too, makes it possibly the most batshit-crazy movie I’ve ever seen.Read more here.
More next Sunday.
