    Watched in 70mm at Plaza Theatre. At least, I think I did. I feel like I just had a long out of body experience.

    This movie still rules. I know the CG is still the biggest focal point but seeing it in a theater let me really appreciate how gorgeous the matte paintings Moebius, Syd Mead, and their team painted. Just an absolutely gorgeous movie that also happens to make zero sense, but also who cares

    If Michelle Yeoh in a cute bomber jacket and a biplane fighting off entire armies using her kicks and a bull whip doesn't sound like a good time to you, we are no longer friends

  • The Black Phone

    The Black Phone

    ★★★★½

    tied with Scream as my favorite horror of the year. scary and tense, but never without an underlying sense of hope, which feels so rare for movies like this. also, PLEASE more positive depictions of siblings in horror media. finney and gwen are dweebs and they remind me so much of my sister and i

  • Pontypool

    Pontypool

    ★★★½

    This takes place exclusively in one building, breaks the "show don't tell" rule multiple times, and the way the zombie virus spreads is confusing and makes no sense. So how the hell did this still scare the crap out of me??

  • Final Destination

    Final Destination

    ★★★★½

    this is like if they made a movie where all the characters are the people in the black and white clips in infomercials who can't operate a toaster while the narrator goes "DOES THIS EVER HAPPEN TO YOU?". 4.5 stars

  • Elvis

    Elvis

    ★★★½

    Kinda all over the place tonally but when it's good it's REALLY good. At it's best it's transcendental, but at it's worst it feels like Walk Hard without the satire. Luhrmann's definitely one of those directors where you either love his style or can't stand it, but the excessiveness definitely works for this story. But I have nothing but praise for Butler though! He disappears into the role and got possessed by the spirit of Elvis himself apparently! Sincerely hoping he gets awards recognition for this.

    Anyway, fuck Col. Tom Parker!
