    Good God man, 1956. I would say that Kubrick came out of the gate great, but I've seen Fear and Desire. Which, by the way, was 1953. It's a terrible movie and Kubrick hated it for good reason, but to make a movie like this three years later? Inhuman! Of course Killer's Kiss came a year before this and it's definitely a step up from Fear and Desire. And This is a step up from Killer's Kiss! People have issues…

    "Can I spend the night here?"

    1977 saw a real talent emerge on the stage! I've been scared of this movie for as long as I've known about it. Lynch talks about it extensively in The Art Life and it always seemed like this untouchable thing. It seemed like it might be almost holy and indeed, Lynch calls it his most spiritual film. It certainly seems to be his most autobiographical. The movie doesn't suggest that kids are bad, but…

    Groovy Haunted House Shit. I say that because this is the grooviest haunted house movie I've ever seen, and I was saying "shit" a lot during this. There's a surreal grotesquerie, but It's ludicrously upbeat, considering everything that's happening. It's almost encouraging, it's a hopeful movie really, because it stays upbeat the whole time. Almost relentlessly! It's great. There's a great score. It's so groovy. And it's very funny! It's also beautiful as hell. Looks great. Sumptuous and if Criterion…

    ★★½

    This is a story about a man who is bitten by a werewolf, in wolf form. It's clearly just a German Shepherd. When the man inevitably transforms, he turns into a Wolf Man, not a wolf. Also, we are expected to believe that Lon Chaney is Claude Rains' son, which is an impossible sell. It's appropriately Moody and shadowy and foggy so that's great. The central romance has no impact whatsoever. Honestly it's the atmosphere that saves this. It's a…

    ★★½

    Lmao what the fuck is this movie. Breaks all the great rules laid down in the first one! There are some cool scenes but it's a little directionless and there are some really silly acting and editing choices. It is definitely not an improvement on the first. Way more insane though so maybe that's an improvement. I feel like this one skipped over some other entries and went full triple dog dare too soon. It feels like a fourth or…

    Hell yes, hell fuckin yes! This is a great Halloween Movie to watch, a good movie to watch for Halloween, through and through. Watched late night on my couch, by myself. When you watch movies like this, you hope no one walks in halfway through because uh it would be a lot to explain haha. Reminds me of watching Blade Runner and The Terminator on our family Netflix account on the family computer late on a Saturday night and hoping…
