    Knives Out

    Alright. Knives Out surpassed Speed Racer as my favorite movie of all time a while back, so it’s past time I wrote a long, serious review of it. Spoilers throughout.

    Setting the Stage
    “But let me assure you this, my presence will be ornamental. You will find me a respectful, quiet, passive observer of the truth.”

    The first time I saw this was not under the most ideal of circumstances. It was honestly one of the most stressful and traumatic…

    The 2017 Queer Films Challenge

    A film directed by the Wachowski sisters

    "The truth is, I couldn't have been more proud of you. Not because you won, but because you stood up, you weren't afraid, and you did what you thought was right."

    I usually try to avoid rewatches on challenges, but that was literally impossible with this category as I've seen every single film the Wachowski Sisters have ever made. They are, quite possibly, my favorite filmmakers. Not only…

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    So, follow me on this for a second. When it came out Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was the best Terminator movie since T2 simply by virtue of being the only Terminator movie since T2. Then came Terminator Salvation which was the best Terminator movie since T2 thanks to not being Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. You could probably have a pretty good argument about whether the uniform blandness of Terminator Salvation is better than Terminator Genisys being…

    Terminator Genisys

    I’ve been hearing since this came out that the first half of it was actually kind of great and the second half is a heaping trashfire, but I didn’t realize how literal y’all were being! It’s literally at the one hour mark of this two-hour movie that this nosedives from “hey this is actually pretty good so far?” to “this is SO stupid, what the fuck, what the FUCK how is this SO stupid???”

    I mean, it’s probably better than…

    Gone with the Wind

    Frankly, my dear, I can't fucking believe I wasted almost 4 hours of my life watching pro-Confederacy revisionist propaganda. Nor can I believe that, even during the height of Segregation, it was lauded by critics and was nominated for and won an unprecedented number of Academy Awards. Americans are so forgiving of white supremacy when it comes from within our own borders, it just makes me want to vomit.

    And like, okay, if this were a technically brilliant film with…

    Behind the Curve

    *deep breath.* *sigh.* *nervous pause.*

    ok, look.

    i get that there's actually stuff to sort thru here. i get that the movie very passionately argues that it's not just "haha omg look at these weirdos." despite that being so easy and so tempting. i mean... so, so tempting. i get as i'm typing that out loud that it makes me sound like a terrible, mean-spirited person. i hope that the body of work i've presented to u all on this…
