KILLING THEM SOFTLY-- Great. Sure, it's a 2010s version of 1970s revision of 1940s genre, but still.
LOOPER- Ditto, just add a splash, but not too much, of sci-fi. I liked the downbeat ending.
KILLER JOE- Ditto. I didn't care for the princess or tiger ending, but it entranced me until then.
ROCK OF AGES- Sucked beyond belief. Ten minutes in, I made liberal use of fast-forward.
SHAKES THE CLOWN- I really dig Goldwaith but this thing's just lifeless. Too bad.
