• Turning Red

    Turning Red

    Feels really great to watch a well written self-contained story from Disney again that’s also made for kids and not adults who want to look at cartoons to accept death.

    As a media person, having to pay attention to the litany of characters that will appear in movies titled things like Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness for just 10 seconds is exhausting. Turning Red is pretty much a superhero origin story and it’s better than the last 8-10 Marvel films.

    People are gonna watch this and weep 😭 4*Town 4*Ever

    Once

    we could have had infinitely more “Fix You” type songs if the music industry played their cards better

  • The Departed

    The Departed

    the only sin of this otherwise perfect movie is that it couldn’t go on forever and they had to figure out how to end it somehow. but the ending wasn’t half bad either

    top tier Scorsese, every scene he was already one step ahead of my movie brain

  • The Hellstrom Chronicle

    The Hellstrom Chronicle

    Nearly impossible to watch for a guy like me who hates looking at bugs, but luckily I had work to do on a second screen to distract myself from the gnarlier bits.

    On the other hand, this is anti-insect propaganda that asserts that spiders and ants, etc. are conspiring in mass quantities to destroy the human race, so it made me feel a little better for being stupidly afraid of all bugs.

    Great line to highlight for the kind of…

  • Johnny Got His Gun

    Johnny Got His Gun

    freaky film, walks a line between being really metal and laughably ham-handed (Metallica later featured scenes from this film in one of their music videos).

    But Dalton Trumbo rules, blacklisted Spartacus writer who polarized audiences with this bat shit anti-war film that cuts off a guys arms, legs, and face and just has him internally screaming in a hospital to either put him in a carnival or kill him.

  • The Trial

    The Trial

    been trying to watch this one for roughly a year now, couldn’t find it to even rent until Peacock just put it up for free with ads. Imagine if Orson Welles knew we were watching his movies on streaming services for free with ad breaks

    Vanishing Point

    A 99-min car chase. if Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 was a movie

  • Merrily We Go to Hell

    Merrily We Go to Hell

    ground zero for “I love my shitty husband”

    also Cary Grant proves his star power in just a minute long cameo

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

    It ruled when even after murdering a baby he was still like “I really tried to be a good guy”

  • THX 1138

    THX 1138

    George Lucas rules, this is like The Andromeda Strain meets Equilibrium. he puts a guy in a C-3PO factory and has him thrown in jail for thinking about sex during work

    This film was so fucked and odd in such a fun way that would never be done today. Future dystopias in movies have to look kinda cool now because they need us to feel like it’ll be awesome when we live in it. THX 1138 doesn’t hide how horrifying and…

    Up and Down. Up and Down. Goblin! Up and Down.

  • The Andromeda Strain

    The Andromeda Strain

    this is like if Jonathan Hickman made a movie. Most of the film is just scientists looking at cool computers and maps and graphs and it still rules
