    A complete delight. Why isn't this a bigger deal?

    ★★★★

    This 100% inspired Garth Marenghi's The Dark Place - between that and Sam Neill's accent sometimes slipping into full Aussie, I couldn't ask for much more

    The Lost Leonardo

    ★★★★

    Worth it for the bit with Swiss guy alone. It's impossible to leave this without feeling sadness deep in your bones that human civilisation has put its greatest artworks in anonymous airport vaults, as a way to dodge taxes

    Licorice Pizza

    ★★½

    I've never really loved a PTA movie, and that's still true - the first half of this is pretty meh. But Penn, Cooper and other cameos livened things up later on and I enjoyed the shagginess and lack of stakes. Good tunes too

    So let's recap. Travis, the main character played by Harry Dean Stanton:
    -starts dating the mother of his child, Jane, when she was 17, and he was in his 50s.

    I like sports movies, why can't we have more sports movies?

  • Ghosts of Mars

    Ghosts of Mars

    ★★½

    Kinda sad hearing a John Carpenter film score turned into shitty early 2000s drop-D guitar chugging. Worse still thinking that I would've probably liked it better back then

    The scene with the dad and son at the end is one of the best written things I've seen in a movie in years

    Surprisingly entertaining! Maybe because I came in expecting absolute dreck, but caught myself enjoying this.
    To be clear, the critics are right:
    -Sorkin is a terrible director, but this is mitigated here compared to previous messes because it's mostly set on a TV set, somewhere he is clearly comfortable
    -The I Love Lucy of this movie is not funny in any way. And every second line is someone calling it the funniest thing in history. It's the Sunset Strip problem…
