    Finally get started on this (though it remains to be seen if I can keep it up)...

    The We and the I (transmogrifier)
    The Lure (Spinal)
    Greenberg (Pop Trash)
    MacGruber (Dead & Messed Up)
    Mysteries of Lisbon (baby doll)
    The Grey (Ezee E)
    Goodbye, First Love (PURPLE)
    Girl Walk All Day (dreamdead)
    Melancholia (Dukefrukem)

    Unfortunately, I didn't care for The Lure at all (sorry, Spinal!). The early going-ons are promising, with tropes of fairy tale run amok with brash color, bubbly music, and casual violence/nudity. But even accounting for cult item status, once it settles in its "plot" the storytelling is so shoddy and it feels like a string of scenes put together into feature length without much coherent story flow. The film either needs its characters to register stronger or the world-building to be much more detailed/crazy, so that it can have any energy to compensate for lack of any emotional connection or involving story beat. 5/10

    Spent more than half of The Grey wavering about the heavy existentialism: is it distracting from a very effective simple survival tale (sans some frantically edited wolf action), or does it add a refreshing edge of man vs themselves to man vs nature? Maybe if characters other than Neeson are more well-defined from the start, I'll embrace that aspect more readily. But what cinches it is the very great, haunting last act, starting from after the river crossing; the film finally embraces the full fatality of its premise, mixing the bleak question, of how each one of us will deal with death when it comes (one character's simple, quietly nonchalant response to it chokes me up real good), with the humanity of people caught in and confronting it. And it's impossible for me to separate this story and Neeson's performance from his personal life around the time, adding immense wrenching power to scenes such as him questioning reasons with God. Also, one of the great last scenes ever. 7.5/10
