    The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer 1947

    ★★½ Watched 01 Sep, 2016

    Would probably be intolerable, or at the very least completely forgettable, without the limitless charms of Grant and Loy.

    Primer 2004

    ★★★★ Rewatched 27 Aug, 2016

    You could double the running time, multiply the budget by 10,000, put in all the exposition that Carruth leaves out (and be incredibly obvious about it) -- in other words, you could totally Hollywoodize it -- and you'd still have the trippiest, mind-meltingest time travel movie ever.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Hey girl. Sorry you're too young and too small to do anything about global warming, your poverty, your father's horrendous parenting style, your missing mom, your terrible schooling, your community's penchant for alcoholism and general unwindulaxing, and being inculcated with values that emphasize the masculine ("beast it") to the detriment of the feminine ("don't be a pussy"). Oh yeah, and your father dying.

    But hey! You stood up to some imaginary monster pigs, so good for you.
