Evil Dead II
Best cinematography ever! With only a tiny budget, Sam Raimi brings the camera to life as if it were a character. Bruce Campbell is brilliant – this is HIS role. The film is a hilarious sendoff of horror conventions. It’s the 80’s version of Cabin in the Woods.
Ash is the everyday man thrust into the world of the supernatural, fighting for his life. A sense of humor is definitely needed. Despite the chaos, Ash becomes the stabilizing force. He’s the one that holds it all together. And he makes it look easy.
Who is Ash?
(Can't you just see that man with a chainsaw?)

Jay is the author of Dragonfly Warrior, which will be released this year.

Roger Ebert died yesterday at age seventy. His blog post on Tuesday stated he would be slowing down and reviewing less due to the return of cancer. His final words were “I’ll see you at the movies.” Critics are usually just that – critics. But Ebert made it an acceptable and honorable profession and he will be missed.
Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim comes out this summer, but he’s already at work on his next movie, due out in 2014 – Crimson Peak. It’s a ghost story and gothic romance, staring Emma Stone, Charlie Hunnam, and Benedict Cumberbatch. Here’s hoping it harkens back to the likes of The Devil’s Backbone!
