    COME AND HAVE A GO IF YOU THINK YOU’RE HARD ENOUGH

    This is THE werewolf movie. Literally the best I’ve ever seen. These have to be the best looking werewolves ever put to film. Absolutely perfect blend of macho action movie and moody horror.

    ★★★★

    I’m sorry, but all the slow brooding shots of trees and landscapes couldn’t save this movie. 

    I’m just fuckin kidding that’s literally all I want out of movies these days. And this is a gorgeous one for sure. Well acted too, especially since a lot of these artsier movies run the risk of falling flat in every other department. The lead actor is intentionally and sufficiently unlikeable.

    ★★★★½

    Really normal documentary about a bunch of normal dudes having a normal one. 

    Honestly I’m not sure I understand some of the more negative reviews I’ve seen. Just because many of the key players are unlikeable doesn’t mean the documentary is poorly done or didn’t accomplish what it set out to do. I honestly learned a lot and enjoyed doing so, and as far as I’m concerned that’s the sign of a successful documentary.
