Week In Film: Murderous Romance, Necrophilia, and Dada Pseudo-Film

All sorts of weird things are happening this weekend– Friday the 13th, Valentine’s Day, Fashion Week– which leads me to believe that something awful is going on with the planets. Like, considering that no one has yet promised to buy me dinner and shower me in useless gifts on V-day, something is really, really off. And only something as powerful as the stars could make such impossible circumstances a reality.

Week In Film: Long-Awaited Russian Sci-Fi, Border Struggles, and Shorts Galore

It’s that time of the week again– bow down to our illustrious cinematic picks for this week or risk choosing something embarrassing for your first attractive Tinder date in ages. It’s nothing but slim pickins in February. Everyone’s already paired off in anticipation of the big 1-4, otherwise known as vom. Yes, this is unfortunate and disgusting at the same time, but we know you just want in on the V-day fun. But we promise you that you will literally be alone forever if you continue to insist on dragging your love interest to see yet another installment of Taken. Oh, wait– sorry about that. But nevermind what we do, this is about you and your love life.

This Week In Film: Bourgeois Problems, Godfather Part 4, And The Academy Snub

Nominees for the Academy Awards were announced today, which is either a total bore parade or an outrage-inducing annual occurrence, depending on your perspective of course. Generally we here at Reel Psyched (i.e. me) could care less about some gilded relic from Old Hollywood, a yearly spectacle that has become so much worse since the invention of HD television, something that has enabled throngs of unlucky viewers to clearly see the sweaty pores and close-to-bursting seams barely holding those half-dead, half-plastic polymer living, breathing action figures and laser-cut voodoo dolls together.

Week In Film: Burroughs Bugs, Rogue Abortions, and Debauchery in ’70s Brazil

Man this week has been brutal. What with the snow and the slow-as-hell trains and the wind and the ice, how will we ever get through the magnified pain of daily existence from here until, like, May? An old-fashioned trip to the cinema, that’s how! There are a slew of great new films to see and some old ones screening this week too. Check out our picks for films this week below.

Film This Week: Ice-Cold Club Kids, Xmas Horror, and Rare Glimpses of Vaudeville

Sup guys? Darkness reigns right now, so instead of pining away for the sun when it sets just two hours after freaking lunch, forget about it. Embrace the season of death by spending it far, far away from things that are a reminder you’re stuck on planet Earth till (real) death do y’all part. The best way to do that, in our opinion, is to get to a cinema theater.
