  • Play Misty for Me

    Play Misty for Me


    My grandpa has been telling me to watch this for 20 years and I should’ve listened to him. Soaked in that unmistakable Monterey/Carmel atmosphere I love and tethered by Jessica Walter’s turn as the ultimate crazed-clinger, PMFM proves that Clint Eastwood-giallo not only exists but is every bit as good as it sounds.

  • In the Cold of the Night

    In the Cold of the Night


    I think you & Brian DePalma should get together.

    That sex scene could’ve been straight out of MacGruber - incredible stuff. Really makes you stop and think: how erotically charged are marbles?
    Children’s marbles?

  • Cemetery of Terror

    Cemetery of Terror


    If you can just accept that the nice well-adjusted girlfriends in this movie would allow themselves to be party to robbing a corpse and using it to perform satanic witchcraft in a cemetery you will find that this is kitchen-sink Halloween night horror with more story packed in it than most robust anthologies - and it works!

  • American Underdog

    American Underdog


    they really made Anna Paquin look like Glen/Glenda from Seed of Chucky

  • Beverly Hills Cop III

    Beverly Hills Cop III


    Was this originally intended to be a cartoon?

    Felt like my recollections of an old TMNT or GI Joe episode.

  • Pennywise: The Story of IT

    Pennywise: The Story of IT


    One of my earliest memories is my grandma (a Constant Reader™️) making me watch IT live on tv when I was 3 and being scared out of my fucking mind. I’d already cut my teeth as a toddler with Ghostbusters on repeat, but I wasn’t equipped to handle shit like a razor-toothed clown squeezing up out of the shower drain to sadistically torment and terrorize children. Fucked me up most definitely, but it’s one of touchstone memories of how I…

  • Battleship



    Way too much ado about the Rimjob Exercises (its been weeks, that’s what I remember) and Taylor Kitsch’s military potential, not enough aliens (???) or anything I would consider good. Seeing Rihanna in a sleeveless HOODS shirt gave me eye cancer.

    200 million dollars and they couldn’t even bother to get Gerard Butler

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street

    A Nightmare on Elm Street


    Won’t need a stretcher up there. You’ll need a mop.

    Finally got to see this in a theater and it was revelatory. So many tiny moments and details I’d normally miss after innumerable half-invested rewatches, but this time my eyes were peeled and I got to really soak in the viscera.

  • Infinity Pool

    Infinity Pool


    Mamma Mia! 🥵

  • Halloween



    this is my Top Gun: Maverick

  • Communion



    You’ve broken my mind.

    I really let the silly Lynchian Christopher Walken-ness of everything wash over me on first watch, but I was fully ENTRANCED by Communion this time around. The encounters are relentless and pretty goddamned terrifying - confused, fever-dreamed assaults filled with high strangeness (sometimes of an even groovy/playful variety!).

    Can we talk this over? It looks like you're going to sing White Christmas...

    It’s Walken’s performance though, as a man that can’t reconcile what he’s experienced that…

  • A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night


    Sad songs hit the spot, don’t they?

    Yes, and apparently so do sad Iranian vampire movies. Hate my stupid self for waiting almost 10 years to finally watch this.
