  • Limite



    A great restoration with beautiful imagery and music but unfortunately this movie has big “falling asleep during 9am History of World Cinema” energy

    I had fully forgotten how much salient social commentary was imbedded into this skillfully crafted thriller. The kangaroo court scene highlights Lorre’s immense talent, and the image of the mob all raising their hands in unison is quite the beat. V glad I bought this

  • Chungking Express

    Chungking Express


    Undoubtedly one of the GOATs

  • A Christmas Story

    A Christmas Story

    This movie is a huge bore sorry to any fans out there but I am not down

  • Dry Summer

    Dry Summer


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

    Not sure where all of these Genesis references are supposed to lead to, since the fratricide here is nothing like Cain and Abel. Nonetheless, this is a solid film that makes interesting points about land and laws. Osman has the deed to the land from where the water flows, giving him the right to inflict drought on his neighbors. Yet legal decisions typed up by local authorities are easily overturned, and Osman himself destroys all records of his brother’s communication…

  • Die Hard 2

    Die Hard 2


    This is weak but at least now I see where Mac from Always Sunny gets it from

  • Redes



    Steinbeck must have seen this movie

  • Touki Bouki

    Touki Bouki


    Wasn’t really feeling this one except for that sex on the beach scene

  • In the Mood for Love

    In the Mood for Love


    Slightly infuriating that in the one rain scene where my man has an umbrella he just holds it limp at his side. No wonder your wife doesn’t like you

  • Moneyball



    This movie is 100% a future classic. 

    Also huge shout out to the production designer who decided that the only decoration in Jonah Hill’s bedroom would be a poster of Plato

  • The Corn Is Green

    The Corn Is Green


    The timing and delivery of “that man is so stupid it sits on him like a halo” is an all-timer burn

  • The 25th Hour

    The 25th Hour


    Watching a movie on a flatbed/steenbeck has the same effect as an airplane where it doesn’t matter how much footage is missing or how badly the color has faded to magenta — you’re still glued to the screen the whole time. 

    Really great final scene
