    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★

    general MCU caveats (sub-dogshit cgi, stakes so high that they circle back around to meaningless, “quips,” useless universe-building cameos) but my old friend samuel is here! hello my friend! absolutely burst out laughing at a couple visual fight ideas! interesting camera movement!! danny elfman is here! bruce campbell punching himself in the face! could do a lot worse

  • Rumble in the Bronx

    Rumble in the Bronx

    ★★★½

    minus one zillion stars for everything in this that is not an action sequence, plus one zillion and three and a half stars for every action sequence. anyway insane nobody died on this one!! multiple gasps and claps and screams from yours truly!! they don’t make em like this anymore baby

  • The Canterbury Tales

    The Canterbury Tales

    uneven and not especially funny - it’s tough with the humor of a thousand years ago, from another country, filtered through the comic sensibilities of a SECOND country, from 50 years ago. not to mention that everyone is speaking english and then dubbed over into italian and then subtitled again - which gives everything a very faraway feeling for me. THAT SAID, there’s a sequence at the end that makes everything completely and absolutely worth it. they extremely reach the fireworks factory

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★

    what i truly love about eggers is that he understands that the past isn’t only a foreign country, it’s another planet. it’s also a planet where everyone is stupid as hell

    anyway i should play skyrim again

  • Police Story

    Police Story

    ★★★★★

    unreal!!!!!!!!! literally hoots and hollers from me during. every time i see a movie of his i haven’t before i cannot believe how good jackie is at making a setting or an object interesting in a fight. every time you see a new place it’s just humming with insane possibility 

    also more movies should have a sequence during the credits where they show everyone who made it getting carted off to the fucking hospital

  • Inside Llewyn Davis

    Inside Llewyn Davis

    ★★★★★

    also features in the mr kennedy scene perhaps my FAVORITE instance of my favorite coens thing which is: two people having a conversation while a third person does something semi-related and completely insane

  • Funny Girl

    Funny Girl

    ★★★★

    here’s the thing. between this and what’s up doc i feel it is VERY important to note that barbra is at her best when she’s being a horny little gremlin.
