    Easy A

    ★★★½

    Ah yes, a cheesy high school comedy with constant narration from the main character, witty dialogue and an incredibly unrealistic portrayal of high school directed by a guy named Will Gluck. A damn 2010 classic if I’ve ever seen one. 

    Every dad should aspire to be as happy-to-be-alive and cool as the one Stanley Tucci plays here. Take notes.

    Fuck, this is great. Really great. First hour or so is kind of just really perfect filmmaking. Sort of loses it’s momentum a bit after that but not enough for it to ruin the film in any type of way, because all around this is really damn excellent.

    Went into this already knowing what the twist was and I think that kind of helped? Or maybe I just don’t think the twist is as dumb as so many people say…

    Heavy stuff. Didn’t expect this one to hit so hard but damn am I glad it did. Still feel like even after 3 years this has completely flew under so many people’s radars. Hell, even I’m watching it for the first time now. A really well directed and tightly written film with too many powerhouse performances to count, though I will say Octavia Spencer’s performance stood out the most to me. Gotta be her best, she’s way too good here. …

    ★★★★½

    Summer blockbuster of the year, baby. Won’t be surprised if this one is considered a classic later down the line. Peele created something really special here.

    Man this just rocks so hard. I mean why wouldn’t it? Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea AND Steven Yeun giving some of the best performances of the year and some jaw-droppingly impressive movie magic from Peele and Hoytema. There’s just so much talent here, and everyone comes through. So much to dissect as…

    Took me far too long to watch the coolest movie ever made but y’know, on the bright side, I’m happy I even got to experience the coolest movie ever made. Imagine going through your whole life without having seen Thief. Must’ve been a pretty boring life.

  • Pain & Gain

    Pain & Gain

    ★★★★

    Seeing The Rock all coked up with green dye
    all over his face, getting his toe shot off whilst being chased by the police and eventually escaping was the craziest thing I had ever seen as a 10 year old. 

    8 years later and I have yet to see anything crazier. Nothing comes close.

    ★★★½

    My movie game has been pretty bad lately because I’ve just been so damn busy but I think watching this helped revive my love for film a little bit. I didn’t love it, I think it’s very confused on what it wants to be most of the time, but I’d be lying to your face if I said it wasn’t quite the ride, because well— it really was quite the ride.

    ★★★★

    “Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic.”

    Oozing with style in every single frame. A lot more odd and surreal than I expected but I loved it. Also, was that a nod to The Tell-Tale Heart at the end? That final scene rocks so damn hard.

    Jessie Buckley is too good of an actress to be in a movie THIS bad. Alex Garland how dare you.

  • Jurassic Park

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★½

    Woke up this morning and decided today will be the day I finally watch Jurassic Park.

    Then I proceeded to watch the new Beavis and Butt-Head movie (I have priorities).

    BUT I did indeed watch Jurassic Park after and yeah It’s a good movie, who woulda thought. Not sure why I hadn’t seen it till now but we’re all trying to catch up with something one way or another. Gonna do myself a favor and skip out on the sequels though, this was enough dinosaurs for me.

    ★★★½

    God did I miss these two dill weeds…

    Beavis and Butt-Head are back and they’re just as stupid and horny as they’ve ever been. Nothing else matters, the world is at peace and the balance of our universe has been restored.

    “You the only man that's ever touched me. You’re the only one. I haven’t really touched anyone since.”

    Hits especially hard the second time around, particularly because I’m at a time in my life where I’m starting to question my own sexual identity everyday. I feel like crying until I can’t anymore.
