    ok i know this was like a blockbuster or whatever when it came out but listen listen... i feel like at this point? in 2021? this is camp. there is something very satisfying about seeing the stormchaser cars drive very fast on a two lane surrounded on either side only by cornfields towards a big huge storm (and this time i actually saw it at the drive-in DURING a moderate medium storm which was essentially a 4D experience). it’s very…

    genuinely don’t know how to discuss this one without just spewing love love love for it. one of the most prominent movies i can recall that sincerely hasn’t gotten old since i first saw it in theaters over a decade ago. and revisiting that theater experience tonight was so much fun, me with my big bucket of popcorn and a huge grin plastered across my face when i wasn’t mouthing all the funniest lines or silently drumming along to the music. movies are SO fun sometimes (this one especially!!) and it’s very fun to simply love a movie

    “because she loved rocks”

    this truly feels less like a movie and more like a fond but hazy memory, which might be why it’s so special in my eyes. life is mostly made up of memories we recount all alone in the quiet, and otherwise we’re busy distracting ourselves to keep from thinking about them. this honors those memories and gives itself over to a protagonist who chooses to live inside of them while on…
