I’d just use this as Twitter for movies, but every 5 minutes I get the urge to write a video essay on Ratatouille

    “If you want to tell me what to do, put me on the fucking payroll, how about that?”

    Give me 10 Aubrey Plaza action movies plz

    Fun thriller that could have had more tension.

    “Sometime the sad parts make the happy parts matter more.”

    Kind of like Sundance.

    This movie felt like a dude went “what do 6th grade girls sound like” and made this. I’m sure that it came from a genuine place of trying to make a good movie, but it didn’t work.

    I’m not the target demographic for the movie though, so maybe they’ll enjoy it more than I did.

    “Come on, give me a smile.”

    Talk about a meat-cute. This was stylistic horror done right. While it loses steam in the middle and is a little predictable, the first 30 minutes are damn near perfect. With great cine, score, and a chilling performance by Sebastian Stan, FRESH was a great way to cap off Day 1 of the fest.

    Also having a song say “ARMIE HAMMER” was hilarious…

    “The things that really scare you are the things that are going to help you the most.”

    This was an amazing movie about growing up and being uncertain of where to go in life post-college. Licorice Pizza also did the whole “two characters in different age groups falling in love” thing, but to me, this movie delivered in it in a more sincere and complete way.

    I need to check out Shithouse. Cooper Raiff’s style and directorial voice really spoke to me and I’m excited to see his take on the college experience.
