    "Dragon Tiger Gate" enflamed my wrath not because it's terrible (it's not), but because it tricked me into thinking that I would be entertained. The first act is pretty awesome, but just as you let its warmth wash over you, the second act arrives and it's numbingly cold...and then the third act drenches you with piss and semen.

    Personally, I felt "Seven Swords" came from Tsui Hark's bowels rather than his brain and I have no idea what the appeal is supposed to be. Yes, it's passable- and sometimes even exceptional- on a technical level but it suffers from every problem which usually accompanies films that were intended to be four hours long.

    But those who understand my tastes know that I'm tired of the ordinary, conventional flicks that take no risks, so "Forbidden City Cop" immediately got into my pants with its strangeness. But the unique fight scenes and hilarious comedic antics seduced me into a satisfying relationship.
  4. “Deliver Us From Evil (2014)” movie review

    "Deliver us From Evil" doesn't contain a single original idea, other than maybe making Joel McHale into a bad-ass, but it takes those familiar possession concepts and blends them with the clichés of a gritty police drama. This mating of genres is fairy unique and it helps that they have chemistry together, making the film seem more original than it really is.
