    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    My inclination to rewatch this was watching CinemaTyler's video on the Sniper Sequence and remembering just how good this movie is.

    It's a demented retelling of Lord of the Flies, it's a tale of lost innocence and growing up too fast. The ending has never lost its power on me. I got chills when I first watched this at 13, and I got chills when I watched this at 18.

    Then, about fifteen minutes into the movie, I got a…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Undeniably, the work of a maestro, yet will, unfortunately, forever live in the shadow of its predecessor, which just happens to be the greatest horror film ever. Hooper already saw the original as comedy, so he decided to go full-blown hilarity as he sets the first kill to Oingo Boingo’s No One Lives Forever.

    It’s a staunch departure from the original’s almost lack of music, save for a few examples. The songs chosen in either film add interesting dimensions to their respective…

    I love that this is the second time I’ve watched this movie for school. I absolutely adore this movie. I’m not sure exactly why though, however, I do love me some beautiful cinematography. But there’s a strange, alluring quality to the story, dialogue, acting, and editing that make me love it. My favorite Malick, at least until I rewatch The Tree of Life

    Cats

    Before watching Cats
    Look, I don’t really like Andrew Lloyd Webber that much. Phantom of the Opera and School of Rock are the few exceptions, purely for nostalgia and personal attachment. I’ve never seen Cats live, but I already know I’m not going to like it. I also do not like Tom Hooper. So, I’m expecting this to suck. 

    During the film:
    This is absolutely horrendous. 

    After watching Cats
    I loved it. It was much better than Cats. I’m going to see it again and again. 

    But seriously, holy Lord, this is hellish.

    If Good Time was an LSD-induced acid trip, then Uncut Gems is one giant line of cocaine. Everything is experienced in extremes, anger arises quickly, and you are paranoid the whole time. 

    This instantly shot up at my top five of the year*, and bonus points for Billy Joel! 

    Adam Sandler, as an actor, really shines when he’s under great direction. Paul Thomas Anderson truly showcased how great of a talent Sandler could be, and now the Safdie Brothers have…
