Review: Ugetsu

The films of Kenji Mizoguchi have been a major blind spot in my life as a filmgoer. I've seen plenty of Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu films, but for some reason Mizoguchi had always hovered on my to-watch list, always put off until recent...

Review: Tampopo

Prior to this week, the last time I saw Juzo Itami's 1985 food comedy Tampopo was in the mid-90s. I remembered so little of the movie save for the fact that I enjoyed it. Some isolated scenes are easy to recall, though. There's an etiquette...

Review: Jurassic Park 3D

It's in 3D! It's like the Jurassic Park you have at home on DVD or Blu-ray, but with more depth. You also have to wear glasses or else it's just blurry Jurassic Park. Also, the dinosaurs win. At the end there's just a bloody pile of hu...
