    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    ★★★★½

    pretty insane how much grander the scope of this thing got compared to the first one, but i guess that’s the magic of the #sequel, baby! very funny, the cast is wonderful, the set design is mind blowing, the twists and turns work well, etc etc etc. i hope rian and daniel can make as many of these things as they want

    ★★★½

    fun! reasonably interesting satire that commits to the bit and never feels too full of itself. love the goofy shit that Hoult and Fiennes are doing here

    The Banshees of Inisherin

    ★★★★

    as soon as i got out of this movie, i got a text from my mom that one of my favorite relatives in on his deathbed with late stage cancer. he’s a fun, old hippie guy that i only met once, but he had a profound impact on my life. we would talk from sunset until sunrise, exchange music recommendations, and tell stories about what made us who we are. in the years that followed his only visit, he would…

    Possession

    ★★★½

    uhhhhhh, this is gonna take some time to digest. an extremely draining 2 hour reflection on the existential horrors of marriage and parenthood? I think? it can be kooky in like a…Talking Heads kinda way, and then the definition of pure dread at other points.

    Isabelle Adjani acted her ass off, especially in that one scene

    there was some stuff that I’m not gonna pretend like I understood, but it sure was something

    ★½

    less of a movie and more of a depraved gore compilation with an attempt to make ~the next big halloween costume~

    lame as hell imo

    TÁR

    ★★★★

    girlboss whiplash with a little joker (2019) thrown in for good measure. that’s mainly a joke but, still … kinda. what a fascinating movie. so many relevant topics, so many different ways that human beings can and will react to them. people are complicated

    Halloween Ends

    ★★½

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

    really strange movie lol.

    - intro was hilarious. great idea
    - the plot of this is basically michael myers teaming up with a guy that’s acting like tobey in spider-man 3. how the hell did that get greenlit?
    - something that annoyed me about that concept the entire time is like … they keep making movies saying that michael is the pure embodiment of evil. there’s no way he’s gonna decide to team up with some kid and show him…

    ★★★

    the screenplay is incoherent, the movie is horribly acted by everyone except Bardem, it’s far too long and yet nothing happens the entire time … i really enjoyed myself. go lyle 👍

    ★★

    what was crazier in this true crime doc? the creepy little miniatures they made of the murder scene? or the producers including a photo of the killer wearing a “DEEZ NUTZ” graphic tee?
