  • Can't Stop the Music

    Can't Stop the Music 1980

    ★★★★★ Watched 28 Feb, 2015

    This is the first, and likely last, time I will ever write the following sentence. This 2 hour movie should be longer.

    I watched this entire movie wide-eyed, with an occasional dropped jaw and involuntary shrieks of exuberance. There is nothing more I want from cinema. This is the pinnacle.

    I defy anyone to challenge their cynicism against the charm of this film. Today, your cynicism might win, but eventually, this movie is going to save the world. Film is eternal; you Can't Stop the Movies, and Nancy Walker, Steve Guttenberg, Valerie Perrine, and the Village People WILL be our leaders into a happier existence.

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978

    The thing Brooke Adams does with her eyes in this movie might be my favorite thing anyone has done in any movie.

  • Face/Off

    Face/Off 1997

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 02 Apr, 2014

    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.
