    “So Chewbacca loves Han Sola, Luke loves r2d2, who does yoda love?” 

    “Can you start over I want to see Luke in the tank again”

  • The Shape of Water

    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★½

    Honestly fuck this movie I can never stop seeing hard boiled eggs as fishperson treats

  • Gravity

    Gravity

    ★★★★½

    Honestly this movie is phenomenal and the haters can fight me about it. I can’t think of any other adventure movie that presents the intrinsic nature of the environment as the narrative problem as effectively and beautifully as this. Insterstellar’s runtime could’ve learned a few things here. Minus a half-star for George Clooney in peak cheeseball form. 
    (Side note: this movie has the least obtrusive use of 3D I’ve seen, but that could be my pro-gravity anti-3D bias talking)
