    The Tall Man


    there are so many twists in this movie. almost none of them work but it’s fun to watch something that starts as horror implode into a bizarre and probably insensitive drama about class conflict. not what i expected or wanted, but it’s original!

    absolutely hilarious. i love inspector ike.

  • Terrifier 2

    Terrifier 2


    this is a blast. the effects are spectacular and i really liked lauren lavera’s performance. my only big issue is the pacing, which i didn’t even mind until the third act, when it’s just the same scene over and over again for probably 30 minutes and i felt like the guy in freddy got fingered holding the “when the fuck is this movie gonna end” poster. even then, i appreciate that this exists.

  • A Cure for Wellness

    A Cure for Wellness


    it took me like 3 nights to finish this but i enjoy it. definitely flawed but the missteps are kind of charming, like when the rosemary’s baby lullaby-like theme song gets repurposed during the action climax to sound like pirates of the caribbean.

  • The Fog

    The Fog


    it’s so moody i love it.

  • Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

    Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse


    found this really amusing until it wasn’t. francis ford coppola is a genius and a capital a artist but yikes at some of his behavior. that wouldn’t be a problem for this movie if it wasn’t trying to mythologize him but i think it is and that makes the whole thing a little gross. its focus is also way too above the line— interview some of the crew members! i wanna hear what a random sound guy has to say about all this and if he thinks it was worth it.

  • Fear



    so so dumb but it turns into a siege thriller and therefore it’s good

  • Fatal Attraction

    Fatal Attraction


    so well directed, edited and performed that it almost made me forget that the movie tells us next to nothing about glenn close’s character. you’d think a two hander about an affair would explore psychology but this movie is more interested in the sex and torment, which by 2023 standards is refreshing but i really could’ve used more alex. best part was when my brother sat up and earnestly said “if someone made this today, it should be a six-part miniseries.” he had no idea.

  • Deep Blue Sea

    Deep Blue Sea


    i wish i could be onboard with this because the second half is a fully absurdist romp that ends with the best original song ever written for a movie, but until a shark launches stellan skarsgård through a window like a missile, nothing really happens and it just feels like walmart jurassic park.

  • The Jane Mysteries: Inheritance Lost

    The Jane Mysteries: Inheritance Lost

    jane da silva solves mysteries about other people but more importantly herself.

  • Psycho



    someone should make a shot for shot remake of this in a few years and continue the chain to see how bizarre and abstracted this story can get.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3


    idk if i’ll stand by this rating because marvel movies age like milk and i never ever want to rewatch them, but i can confidently say this is my favorite mcu joint. it’s the only one that’s actually had me fully invested from start to finish and it made me cry! were the emotional moments low hanging fruit? probably but they were effective and there’s actual injury and peril in this and i was deeply affected by all of it. it made me feel like a kid and i loved it a lot. 2023 isn’t messing around, movies are gooooood this year.
