  • The Wicker Man

    The Wicker Man


    Midsommar eat your heart out.

  • The King

    The King


    It's like watered-down Shakespeare, but still an impressive ending.

  • Terms of Endearment

    Terms of Endearment


    Possibly my biggest blindspot, but this film gets to see everyone's tears eventually.

  • Palm Springs

    Palm Springs


    I'm going to watch this movie over and over, we need more tightly-crafted and thoughtful comedies.

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre


    One of the best horror films I've ever seen, frightens in its simplicity and culminates in an impressively disturbing climax.

  • Doctor Zhivago

    Doctor Zhivago


    Every movie would be improved with an Alec Guinness voice-over.

  • Only Yesterday

    Only Yesterday


    Breathtaking animation and a beautifully nuanced and authentic feminine coming of age tale about moments in a child's life that are undramatic but deeply memorable.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road


    Every other minute on second viewing, "how the fuck did they film THAT!"

  • First Blood

    First Blood


    Wow I loved it, an unexpectedly sensitive, raw, and emotional film.

  • Red Beard

    Red Beard


    Truly awe-inspiring how many perfect films Akira Kurosawa created.

  • Batman Returns

    Batman Returns


    No character ever put to film will more accurately reflect Donald Trump's personality than Danny DeVito's Penguin.

  • Primal Fear

    Primal Fear


    A fine vehicle for a spectacular film-debut performance from Edward Norton but as a court-room drama it's laughably unrealistic and flat.
