    Adventureland

    ★★★★★

    No one ever wins a giant ass panda.
    -Bobby

    Adventureland is one of my ultimate comfort films and in my humble opinion, one of the most criminally underrated films of our generation. 

    This is honest character building and unfiltered dialogue from young, existential, and slightly too angsty adults who are more directionless by the day, looking for passion in something. These are all people who I have met in my life, and they are people who will always exist in every…

    ★★★★½

    Who will indulge me in this game?
    -Green Knight

    I expected great and weird things from David Lowery, and damn he delivered. My dad used to read my stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table when I was a kid. I don’t recall anything like this tale, but I felt a huge wave of blissful nostalgia throughout the whole story.

    This is the perfect blend of surrealism and symbolism with the classic Authurian fairy tale, complete…

    Hooptober IX Movie #9 of 31

    We need guilt, doctor. And shame. But not yours.
    -Susie Bannion

    After seeing the original a while ago, I expected brighter colors and a similar story. This was not that, but it was equally memorable in different ways. I felt myself fully invested for every minute of this, which made the climax a crescendo of wonderful sensory overload. 

    I felt myself stumbling on the heels of the plot almost the entire time, and had…

    Hooptober IX Movie #8 of 31

    I just stood there paralyzed with fear and I realized that there was nothing that they could do for me anymore.
    -June Palmer

    Lake Mungo succeeds in low budget horror land with its effectiveness in tense moments, strange twists, and the feeling of unknowing. The characters are established as untrustworthy, and possibly the most brilliant aspect of this film is borrowing from Twin Peaks and letting the audience piece together what they think Alice’s personality…

    Hooptober Movie #7 of 31

    It’s easy to promise the impossible.
    -Mr Frankenstein 

    Frankenweenie has some incredible aesthetics. The b&w claymation is fantastic and really drew me in. It’s also something to know what Anya Taylor-Joy looks like if she were made of clay. 

    New Holland is some Reagan-dream garbage. I really would have loved to see more destruction. I did love all the horror references, but the overall story and character design felt a bit dull. 

    It was a fun watch, but nothing too profound, and I’m not sure who this movie was made for other than Tim Burton.
