  • Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★★½

    haven't had a movie make me laugh this hard in a very very long time

  • The Raid 2

    The Raid 2

    ★★★★½

    Wow. The fighting in the first one is incredible, the fighting in this one is nauseating and suffocating. Heart pounding and edge of my seat for real
    Was a little too long and the plot was a little too convoluted, but jeez dude lol. This thing is formidable. The best fighting I have ever seen in a movie bar none

  • Trick 'r Treat

    Trick 'r Treat

    ★★★★½

    soooooo good and fun made me feel like a little kid again. halloween rules the movie rules and I can't believe it got shafted by warner bros. a new fav

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    ★★★★½

    so fun. dialogue is genuinely hysterically bad but the horror stuff is pretty creepy and cool. page pointed out johnny depps mom wakes him up to tell him to go to bed and i think that's the funniest thing ever

  • Possum

    Possum

    ★★★★½

    wow this was very freaking creepy! this is the exact slow burn conceptual horror a bunch of nerds talk about liking more than slashers. it is a short movie already but probably could've been even shorter, but i just have to admire this. everything about it is clammy and weird and vile, sean harris is a magnificent physical actor. the creature design is legitimately horrific even when you're just staring at it face on. i will probably have issues closing my eyes tonight!

    liked this way, way more than i thought i would. soundtrack was absolutely perfect, especially the flute

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    gets a will gold star despite not being a 5. i think I will like it even more if I watch again but it sort of lost me in the middle-end area but reflecting on it has made almost (not quite all) everything click for me. truly something to behold, the first half is just jawdroppingly effective

  • Grizzly Man

    Grizzly Man

    ★★★★½

    affected me quite a bit. my first Herzog and was blown away by how present he made himself in the documentary, really loved it. the moments of him relating to Treadwell as a filmmaker are just incredible

    people in this movie talked in insanely strange ways. the coroner, his close friend, all behave in odd like semi scripted ways that I just cannot understand the cause for. it's so odd and Herzogs camera feels very cold and the pressure some of them are under is very palpable, never seen a documentary that did that

  • Phantom Thread

    Phantom Thread

    ★★★★½

    yea im feelin like daniel da lewis

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★½

    viscerally uncomfortable to the point of being unpleasant to watch. glad i watched it a second time cause i liked it a lot more but i think i will possibly never watch it again

  • The Social Network

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness
