    a movie with a lot of ideas and conclusions, one of them being that if you visit the bookstore enough times a hot brunette will make a move on you

    i need Rachel Sennott more than i need oxygen. i only saw this for the thirst watch and i’m happy to report that Rachel gets enough screen time that it makes up for the fact that i don’t care about anything going on in this. i want her so bad i’m gonna kill myself!!!!

    “We don’t deserve the impossible.”

    everything returns to film. Peele takes a barrage of influences and ideas and formally weaves them together with such precision and ambition it’s staggering to witness from start to finish. straight up masterpiece, the best sci fi horror we’ve gotten since War Of The Worlds at least, and likely maybe even before that. the creature design and reveal at the end is one of the most awe inspiring things i’ve ever seen on a big screen, and i couldn’t imagine at least not being a little inspired by its simultaneous beauty and horror. incredible incredible incredible movie

    Not Okay

    ★½

    made for red scare listeners (derogatory), opens with the twitter balloon guy and a conversation about bushwick and somehow refuses to get any better, downright baffling by the time it approaches the Caroline Calloway cameo. whoever wrote this is going to hell, they should’ve stopped making social media satires after American Vandal got cancelled

    High School Musical 2

    ★★★★

    completely unhinged motion picture. every baseball movie should have a gay musical number about how baseball and dance are inherently similar and compatible acts of physicality and any baseball film that doesn’t is an abject failure. Efron is phenomenal as the dumbest man of all time

    “The forest is gone. Everything is dead.”
    “…We’re still alive.”

    the most richly detailed, lived in, and awe inspiring cinematic world maybe ever created, and to see it on a big screen was just immense in a way so few movies have achieved before or since. but most importantly the final sequence felt so familiar until i realized that FromSoft just straight up took the deer god and made it the Elden Ring final boss lol. incredible picture

    “You ever been in love?”
    “No, I’ve been a bartender all my life.”

    a gorgeous, tragic American West filled to the sky with longing and loss, the future and the present and the past, dreams that give people hope even in the face of inevitable doom. monumental in both text and how deeply rich and expressive the images are, one of the most remarkable films i’ve ever seen

  • Stagecoach

    Stagecoach

    ★★★★½

    not only are starmaking performances like Wayne’s here far and few between (seriously, his presence is unreal), but this is probably the only time in the history of film where someone’s star was made by a single shot, a single zoom, a brief moment of reflection on how characters think of class and status, single-handedly making one of the most iconic movie stars of all time in an instant. completely remarkable in retrospect

    YOU REMEMBER HOW THAT GIRL IN THERE, THE PEOPLE THAT WAS RACING?

    SHE WAS THE GLITCH

    YOU TELLING ME THEY DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THE MOTHERFUCKING GLITCH

    YOU’RE TELLING ME PEOPLE DON’T LOOK AT KANYE WEST LIKE THE GLITCH RIGHT NOW

    AND SHE WAS ON THE SIDE OF THE VIDEO GAME THE WHOLE TIME

  • Who Killed Captain Alex?

    Who Killed Captain Alex?

    ★★★★★

    a deeply inspirational, pure work of a community banding together to create the coolest movie they can with whatever tools they have, everybody on and behind the camera could not be more excited to be there, to see themselves on the screen, it’s as unfiltered of a love for the movies as there is. there’s absolutely zero pretense, everything from the deranged video joker to the joyful overindulge in violence, built from the ground up to make the first action movie by and for Ugandans. phenomenal
