“Vincent Smith and his sister Ida run a rural hotel, but they earn most of their cash operating a food stand that specializes in world-famous sausages. After years of success, however, the duo’s upstanding brother, Sheriff Bruce, eventually discovers the grotesque details of his siblings’ booming business: Vincent and Ida are actually plumping up their hotel patrons, killing and dismembering them and then grinding them into frankfurters.”

MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK
Last and First Men (2020) – The late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson directed and scored this artsy black and white film based on the 1930 novel by British author Olaf Stapledon. Narrated by the great Tilda Swinton, it tells the story from two billion years in the future, where humanity finds itself on the verge of extinction. Almost all that is left in the world are lone and surreal monuments, beaming their message into the wilderness. It’s pretty too look at and has a cool score to accompany it. 3.75/5
Cherry (2021) – Holland gives one helluva performance as an Army vet with some serious PTSD, and resorts to robbing banks to support his opioid addiction after returning from Iraq. It’s a pretty intense downward spiral. It feels like Trainspotting and Full Metal Jacket had a baby. 4/5
Red Dragon (2002) – Upon finishing all three seasons of Hannibal, I decided to revisit this one since I haven’t seen it in years. It’s interesting how many lines are directly used in both. I still think Brett Ratner is a hack, but this is one of his better made movies but still not as good as Silence of the Lambs or Hannibal (the show). 3.25/5
I apologize for all the shitty ads above the comments, its a Disqus thing and we may need to pay for an upgrade to remove them.
