    Paris, 13th District

    This film made me want to go and fight all the Film Twitter prudes who argue that sex scenes have no place in film or TV. Make them all fucking watch this. What a beautiful, beautiful, passionate film. Surprised the hell out of me when it ended on such a lovely note. That B&W cinematography? Masterful.

    This one is for all the hopeless romantics out there.

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Still can't believe they got permission to use Ugly Sonic in this. So surreal.

  • My Son

    My Son

    This is an interesting experiment, but alas if I didn't know beforehand that McAvoy didn't have a script and improvised the entire thing, I certainly couldn't tell. And that concept creates a problem in itself, which is that I don't believe these were all first takes, thus his surprise at the other characters' dialogue probably wasn't as genuine as it should've been. Would probably work better as a play, if I'm being quite honest.

    It's an entertaining piece, nonetheless. Some really cool shots in there too.

    After Yang

    Silently sitting through the entire credits just so i could hear that Mitski song, holding to dear life while keeping that emotional breakdown from showing. Pain.

    Metal Lords

    I'm not sure I want to "be metal" or like metal anymore after this.

    Hostel

    Say what you will about this movie, but that last act fucking slaps.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    It makes me so, so, so happy to be able to say that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness feels like a Sam Raimi film. All the cheese, delicious camera tilts and zoom ins, ridiculously creative kills (even in a Marvel film, he's able to put modern slashers like Halloween Kills and Scream to shame on that front) and a general creepy atmosphere. Channels The Evil Dead throughout, not only in style but story itself (an evil book that…

  • Moon Knight

    Moon Knight

    Teenage me wouldn't ever think I'd say this, but I really am growing tired of these things. More than that, I'm growing tired of my everlasting love for these characters and this lore. A Moon Knight project is almost like a dream come true, but when you're fighting for your life trying to stay awake, you just think to yourself "maybe this is too much".

    Indeed it is, yes. But it'd be okay if at least each one of these felt fundamentally different by the time the credits roll.

    Nitram

    Hadn't seen a film that sparks up so much debate in quite a while. After I left the theater, I had a discussion about it with a friend and we both got totally different messages from it. Listen, I know a lot of people think that some of us are just born evil, but I'm really not down with that line of thinking - if anything bad does potentially happen, it's always cause and effect for me, I don't think…

  • Demonic

    Demonic

    If you pitched me a horror movie about a demon who's become trapped in its host's body after she was left paralyzed, spiced up with elements of The Evil Within and A Scanner Darkly, and complete with a black ops unit funded by the Vatican which exorcises people... I'd tell you it'd be impossible for me to fall asleep in the theater.

    Yet, here we are...

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    When you're severely sleep deprived because you just came back from a cross-country trip where you've worked 14 hours a day but you don't really wanna go to sleep, you wanna see the new 'Nic Cage playing Nic Cage' meta movie.

    Truly a gift from the heavens. I want what Nic and Pedro Pascal have.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    Probably my most anticipated film of the year and it did not disappoint. The Northman is pure savagery, a blood-soaked tale of vengeance fated by the gods, where morality is ultimately clouded by principle rather than emotion and choices are devoid of free will. Heads roll, guts spill out, and naked men make animal noises while they kill one another for two hours. Cinema™.

    For a film that reportedly suffered from studio interference, the editing flows quite well. Here and…
