• Watcher



    Moral of the story: believe what your girlfriend tells you, even if you think she’s crazy! But in all seriousness, I love simplistic, minimal horror like this. I also tend to love when the genre veers towards extremely grounded, possibly relatable territory for anyone; in this case stalking, peeping toms and paranoia. It’s a psychological horror film that’s handled with quite a bit of care and I really enjoyed it.

    District 9 meets I, Robot meets The Mandalorian meets Logan meets ahh forget it. Everything takes inspiration from everything these days, but inspiration aside, I’m just glad we still can get completely original screenplays for blockbusters, not based on any existing IP or franchise, it’s refreshing.

  • Coraline



    A great Tim Burton movie that Tim Burton had absolutely nothing to do with. Great animation, characters and overall vibe, but the story was a bit predictable for me! And people made this out to be way creepier than it actually was. Although I guess if I watched it as a kid then I’d be a bit freaked out here and there.

  • Earwig and the Witch

    Earwig and the Witch


    Movies like this are special, specifically when it comes to being seen by pre-teens and young children growing up during the time of its release. It’s keeping the tradition of “nightmare-fuel” kids animation movies alive... Think about it, we don’t get movies like that anymore, everything’s so safe and cutesy these days. We all needed a little trauma growing up, y’know? For some people that movie was Coraline, for ME it was James and the Giant Peach. Talk about fucking…

    The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness


    This was such a delightful documentary. The more I revisit and reflect on Miyazaki’s work, the more I love him. Such an interesting person.

  • Black Orpheus

    Black Orpheus


    Films like this remind me that the golden years of cinema are far behind us. You just don’t get stuff like this anymore. Black Orpheus had me hooked pretty much from beginning to end and there were no points where I was confused, bored or simply not entertained. 

    There’s not many other films I can recall that have such a constant flow of energy, guiding the viewer through all the ups and downs of its story essentially with music. The vibrant colors,…

    I just love everything about this movie. Maybe my favorite animated character ever.

  • Castle in the Sky

    Castle in the Sky


    Just your average Miyazaki flick but an undoubtedly good one. It’s got what you’d expect; cute characters, beautiful music, fantastical settings, great animation, etc. One of his funnier films at times too.

  • The Exorcist III

    The Exorcist III


    The Exorcist franchise in a nutshell (for me):
    The Exorcist: Best horror film ever made.
    The Exorcist II: Worst horror film ever made.
    The Exorcist III: My favorite horror film ever made.

  • Exorcist II: The Heretic

    Exorcist II: The Heretic


    Complete dogshit. Still the worst fucking thing I’ve ever seen.

  • The Wind Rises

    The Wind Rises


    Honestly one of the best Ghiblis I’ve seen. Flows like an actual film, which isn’t something I can say for most of them. Characters were delightful too and the animation was perfection. One of Miyazaki’s more propagandist works though, but the love story thankfully overshadowed that.

  • My Neighbor Totoro

    My Neighbor Totoro


    Exactly what you’d expect from a Ghibli movie. Cute and fantastical.
