  • The Matrix Resurrections

    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★½

    pretty damn good. hits a lot of the raw emotion I hoped it would. maybe one layer of structure too convoluted (felt like it lost a little momentum in the middle) but I absolutely love how much contempt this movie seems to have for its own existence. i like it a lot. some aspects I was not sold on but they really swung for the fences and I appreciate that because this movie would've sucked crap if they hadn't

  • Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

    Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

    ★★★★½

    floored by them taking operation yashima, one of the coolest things ever shown on television, and making it 10x cooler

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★½

    the cowboy has to be one of the coolest and most memorable movie characters I've seen in a while

  • Inception

    Inception

    ★★★★½

    realizing now why tenet felt off and it's because it had no emotion and this does. ya it's the smart movie for dumb guys but wow it's just great

  • Climax

    Climax

    ★★★★½

    Might get bumped up to 5. Can't believe I didn't like it that much the first time. Very sick to watch this right after 2001 especially since (I did not know this until now) he made this as an antithesis to/reverse of 2001. humans descending back to their primordial form

    i have to say I cannot fucking stand gaspar noe as a person. he is marilyn manson level shock and I hate the other movie of his that I've seen.…

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★½

    simon nick and myles were watching this again and i joined halfway through and ended up staying around again for the entire rest of it. it's just so fun dude, it's so refreshing to see a non-marvel superhero movie that feels (to me) like it was made by someone who actually cared about it. mercifully free of stupid quips, unabashedly stupid as hell. the cgi in this completely works on me and looks awesome. sorry

  • Skeleton Man

    Skeleton Man

    ★★★★½

    in a behind the scenes featurette of this michael rooker says that the first time he felt rage was when he realized there were other people named michael
