    ★★★★★

    crazy how good this movie still is. I truly cannot imagine seeing something this openly vile in theaters in 1974. this is a really dumb comparison but I have to imagine it would've been like how I reacted to hereditary the first time only amped up to 1000

  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

    ★★★★★

    "TOOK CARE OF MY HEMS!"

  • The Passion of Joan of Arc

    The Passion of Joan of Arc

    ★★★★★

    Wow. I think this is the first silent film i have ever gone out of my way to watch and i did so on the recommendation of my good friends carl, seamus, and kaylee. this was legitimately unbelievable.

    obviously falconetti's performance is what had me captivated throughout most of the movie, but the camera work and the lighting in this movie are just unreal. i feel so stupid talking about this because i'm so new to it, but the faces…

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    this movie is unbelievably goated and beasted. no questions asked. it's running at 1000% for every second of screentime. will never get tired of watching it

    watched this with captions for the first time ever and heard so many weird future-english stuff. "black thumb" instead of green thumb etc. just such an absolutely incredible movie, truly something to behold. greatest action movie ever made

  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★★

    friend told me this was possibly the best action movie ever when I posted about watching the original last night and I did not believe them. i think I am now a believer

    everything about this just whips insane amounts of ass. Arnold flip cocking the shotgun on the bike, the frankly ridiculous highway chase, the entire Cyberdyne building sequence. Absolutely LOVED where Sarah's character went after the first one. yeah the child acting isn't amazing and yeah it drags…

  • The Terminator

    The Terminator

    ★★★★★

    yes. hunks and babes all around. so good i can't believe it took me this long to see it. the scene where arnold is assaulting the cop precinct is just insane, the dude was built like an action figure

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    will literally never get tired of this movie, animation is absolutely unparalleled and I notice something new every time I watch it. also hilarious

  • Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    ★★★★★

    immediately one of my all time favorite movies

    i think this is the kind of art pretty much everyone inspires to make, not in the literal sense but because i think everyone has a moment where they're like "i wish i could just get this song/film/image directly out of my brain and into existence" and this feels way more like that than anything I think I have ever seen. it brutalizes the medium of film, it sinks its claws into…

  • Stalker

    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    i need a while to think about what this actually means and the thought that was put into crafting this but even on a baseline emotive level a movie has never made me feel the way this one does. totally new feeling for mr will

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

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

    i have a lot of different thoughts about this movie and all of them are praise. i feel so frustrated talking about how much i love this cause i know so many people out their roll their eyes at any movie with this much acclaim and assume it can't possibly be that special. this one is

    i am going to write some really embarrassingly sincere stuff about this movie, so eye-rollers look away now

    -just by virtue of when this…

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    fully lives up to (and beyond) the hype and film bro stereotype. monumental piece of art for me, deeply thankful I have now seen it twice on 70mm in a packed house

  • The Blair Witch Project

    The Blair Witch Project

    ★★★★★
