  • Leprechaun in the Hood

    Leprechaun in the Hood 2000

    Watched 04 Oct, 2015

    Part of Hooptober 2.0

    "A friend with weed is a friend indeed"

    I noticed before writing this that this is the first movie I've logged on Letterboxd with a 1 star. Now there are movies I've logged that I probably dislike much more than this one, but this movie just stinks. I really was hoping for the stupid fun level to be cranked to 11 after seeing the first Leprechaun's amount. Truth is, it's just a bore to get through…

  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Sep, 2015

    Part of Hooptober 2.0

    I think 1970's San Francisco might be cooler than 1970's New York.

    This is one those movie movies you know? Where they fully utilized nearly every aspect of the medium in some way. The sound design is fantastic and the film is shot in these delicious shadows, and overall great production design all around. I think that this one would make a great double feature with the Parallax View, both great 70's thrillers.

With Jack McMurphy in Cuckoo's Nest he was pushing the insane asylum to its limit, and in Man on the Moon Andy Kaufman was taking comedy and entertainment above and beyond where people thought it could go.…

  • Men in Black

    Men in Black 1997

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Feb, 2014 1

    Men in Black stands out as a great franchise starting film that does it all with such simplicity. The world-building here is just fantastically done as you're never questioning the film's lineup of aliens or the methods that go about tracking them. This is all thanks to the 1990's answer to the 1980's Tom Hanks, Will Smith, who gives you plenty of charisma as you learn about the world of Men in Black as he does.
