  • Nashville 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Nov, 2014

    So I just saw this for the first time, and I love it; it feels like you could watch it a hundred times and catch something new or different on each viewing, and it has an ending that straddles the line between triumphant transcendence and blisteringly bleak.

    I have to say, though, I'm a little bit confused that so many people seem to think Karen Black is the one who does the striptease.

    Don't get me wrong, I love me some Karen Black. But hers is not a face you easily confuse with other faces...

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Nov, 2014

    All I can say about this movie is that I've never read the book, and that it ended exactly the way I hoped it would end.

    Also: good for you, Ben Affleck. Good for you...

  • The Hitcher 1986

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2012 1

    I'm not entirely sure this movie makes any sense whatsoever.

    Could not matter less. Rutger Hauer is the God damned devil in this one.

    Highly recommended.

  • White Zombie 1932

    ★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2012 2

    This is a horror movie from 1932 that takes place in Haiti and features Bela Lugosi as a voodoo priest.

    And yet somehow, it manages to be far LESS racist than the John Wayne movie I watched earlier today.

    Take as long as you need to process that.
