    Being a horror fan in 2022 means being more excited about the Dead Meat Chelsea and James cameo than the de-aged Billy Loomis appearances, lol. While I had some minor problems with this entry in the series, it was just so damn fun and exceeded expectations. In its own terms a “re-quel” that comments on the rampant soft horror legacy reboot-sequel hybrids, this movie has no shortage of the meta-commentary the series is so well-known for. And all the new…

    As my personal introduction to the work of Paul Thomas Anderson (and 70mm cinema!) I found this movie hilarious and so naturally-paced, even with loads of tangents and offbeat new side-characters that might’ve been a challenge for a less seasoned filmmaker. Chronicling a moment in time in 1970s LA for a child actor/high schooler and all the schemes he wraps his new adult friend into, it’s a really solid comedy that’s one of…

    Caught this one again in Dolby so I could see every single Criterion disc in Mindy’s collection, lmao. Love how big a focus is on tension this time around, and it’s such a fun entry I could probably watch it ten more times. And, Red Right Hand is definitely gonna be stuck in my head for a while now. Some other stuff I noticed on rewatch besides more DVDs:

    Jeez, Gandalf is quite the badass. We’ve come a long way from the Shire, and I thought this more dark and meditative finale was really epic. It’s amazing how each entry gets better than the last... At the beginning of this series I was really into all those crazy battle sequences, and figured they’d be my favorite part of watching these. But then as all these characters grow and become fully realized on screen, suddenly I learn it’s the brief…

    Giving this a good watch for the very first time, and I thought it was a great fantasy epic with a really wholesome and heartwarming group of friends at the center of it. Some of the simple moments at the Shire were among the most memorable for me, but all the amazing battle and fight sequences really made this film exciting, those were the best. Only one movie in and I’m already all attached and heartbroken over some of these characters. But insanely excited for the rest of this marathon.
