    The Last House on the Left

    ★★★★½

    An almost perfect film. A few odd choices such as the soundtrack are really distracting. I get that you need comic relief to lower tension but the cop antics felt like they're from a different movie. Might be the best acting I've seen in a horror film

    There's some talking heads who weren't attendees or involved with the festival who's job is just to underscore how horrific the footage is... Which speaks for itself. Have read a lot about the 9/11 of the American entertainment industry but finally seeing more than the bands perform is something else.

    Souless. Tedious. I was ready to walk out after 90 minutes but no... Because I'm a masochist I had to sit through what felt like an endless series of false climaxes. I enjoyed The Force Awakens because the new characters were played with fantastic performances by a cast that had genuine chemistry; we lose all of that in The Last Jedi. I love all of Rian Johnson's other films, I'm stunned he wrote and directed something so sterile and generic.

    ★★½

    5 stars for the subject but 1 for the presentation. Ill split the difference and give it 2 1/2. Lots of reviewers have pointed the issues out so i'll say you can easily skip the first 7 minutes of the movie since its a super drawn out prologue/opening credits sequence. The other thing worth mentioning is how awful the sound mix is, there's constant music playing over the movie and it done in a way that overpowers anyone speaking. Movie got me really interested in knowing more about Jayne Mansfield though.
