    holy cow! expected something goofy and silly and instead got one of the most formally stunning and genuinely creepy/moving horror movies i’ve seen in a while. familiar thematic material in this current horror landscape but puts all those movies to shame. even when it does go to those pulpier places it does so with a straight face and earns it by being cool and propulsive in equal measure.

  • Popeye


    the film of a free man. no matter how many times shelley duvall makes the oooo sound it’s still the best thing ever. almost cried during the he needs me scene.

    John Wick: Chapter 4

    obviously this didn’t need to be 2h50 but i was never bored and it felt shorter than the last one! skarsgaard rlly sucks because he refuses to ham it up with the accent and gets totally lost in the process. each one of the previous three has an angle to help give it spice — first is elevated (but un-gentrified) dtv with johnnie to inflections, second is buster keaton thrown through a suzukian meat grinder, third is an artifice-forward reflection…

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    a bunch of people try, with varying degrees of effort and less varying degrees of success, to kill Keanu Reeves as John Wick — the cost of putting on a show

  • History of the World, Part II

    History of the World, Part II

    a pretty good imitation of brooks’ style right down to how uneven it is (though this is more so than even mid-tier mel) but when it’s funny it’s really funny. hit fast forward sooooo fast when i saw taika waititi tho lol

    Deadly Weapons
