Curious what else I’ve seen this year? -Click here to read the full list of movies viewed year to date-

262. Mother! (2017)

This overly pretentious, ambitious film tries to tell the story of the Christian Bible in miniature, through metaphor. The film builds to an explosive, violent and shocking climax which seems calculated to anger Christians. There… is really not a lot of substance here…

263. Spider-Man Homecoming (2017)

An entertaining return to form for the Marvel Spider-Man series, with plenty of action and humor and just the right pinch of material from the ongoing cinematic universe to keep things interesting. The Cinematic Universe elements do not feel reverse-engineered into the story like many of the more recent Marvel films. Tom Holland feels like an excellent casting choice for Peter Parker, who is treated here like a far more believable teen than any prior Spider-Man incarnation on film.

264. Anti Matter (2017)

This low budget sci-fi indie descends into madness very early. When Scientist Ana subjects herself to a teleportation experiment she finds herself unable to form new memories. With only a few lingering images of events she’s witnessed following the accident, she attempts to put together what has happened, and to find out what there is to do. The film’s primary problem is that the concept isn’t near enough to carry the film’s 100 minute runtime.

About Oberst von Berauscht

Oberst Von Berauscht once retained the services of a Gypsy to imbue in him the ability to accurately describe the artistic qualities of a film up to seven decimal points. To maintain this unique skill, he must feast on the blood of a virgin every Harvest Moon, or failing that (and he usually does), he can also make a dog do that thing they do where they twist their heads slightly (you know, when they're confused about something) at least a few times a week. I've gotten way off track here... The point is, Oberst is one of the website's founders, so... yeah
