Aguirre: Wrath of God (1971), blu ray edition
Immediately after finishing this I watched it again with the English Werner Herzog interview/commentary because I had so many questions about the locations, actors, native languages and other aspects of this movie and was not disappointed. Plenty of interesting, hilarious and even frightening anecdotes concerning the making of the film as well, plus interesting insights into Herzog's method and philosophy of film.
The Villainess (2017)
Korean action movie mixing martial arts and shoot-em-up, in that sub-genre where the lead character is a killing machine who can take on an army by him/herself. Features some pretty good action sequences, but the human moments didn't quite balance them out.
The Babadook (2014)
Allegorical story about grief and resentment posing as supernatural horror. Some surprising moments here.
Spirited Away (2002)
I have to applaud the imagination in this Alice in Wonderland story, but I kind of hate that anime aesthetic.
Godzilla 1984 (The Return of Godzilla, U.S.)
I think this was the first reboot of the series, returning Godzilla back to his destructive force of nature/nuclear allegory roots. It also relies heavily on the classic Godzilla formula and f/x: toy airplanes, rubber suit Gozilla knocking down power lines, detailed miniatures of Japanese cities for Godzilla to fuck up, and of course crowds of frantic people evacuating. Somewhat of a sluggish start to what would be a good series in the Godzilla canon.
