    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    ★★★½

    they had this look in their eyes. totally cold, animal! i think they were young republicans.


    This movie is tricky to me. I love the show of course and the movie is... fun! It is fun, and campy, and cute, and I did enjoy it, but there was also a lot I didn’t enjoy, and a lot that just should have been better. 
    The buffy tv series was far from perfect, both plot and character wise, and in terms of…

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★

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

    i have seen this movie before, but not in five or so years, and never before then. i remembered several details, and the general premise- 5 friends go to a cabin in the woods, find a book bound in skin and inked in blood, and accidentally free demonic beings that slowly kill them one by one. I remembered several moments as well- Cheryl being under the floor, Linda’s demonic laugh, and of course, the infamous tree scene (we’ll get there).…

    Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

    ★★★★★

    "If they ever ask about me, tell them I was more than just a great set of boobs. I was also an incredible pair of legs."

    this movie is so amazingly, wondrously, deliriously gay that i couldnt help but absolutely adore it. elvira herself has become a gay icon; her costume has clear drag influence, and her over-the-top campy theatrics are absolutely delightful.

    i have seen elvira's show once or twice, and i have seen her guest star in other…

  • Scooby-Doo! and the Goblin King

    Scooby-Doo! and the Goblin King

    ★★★★

    the truth is, you never know where your next scare is gonna come from.

    I haven’t seen this in YEARS, probably since 2010 or 11, and I wish I had! this is such a cute and silly movie. it’s probably the most unique scooby movie- the rest all follow a similar formula, even if they break or bend the rules. This one has no regard for the format, which is equally strange and fun. It’s a great time, it’s cute,…

    It Chapter Two

    ★★★★★

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

    I think this movie was absolutely incredible. I have heard people saying they don’t love it, and I genuinely cannot imagine how. I thought it was beautiful, heartbreaking, suspenseful, and kick ass. I think it told the story well, and I think it was a really beautiful movie. The cast was extraordinary- the standouts were the incomparable Jessica Chastain as Bev, and Bill Hader, who played Richie flawlessly. If they don’t receive at LEAST golden globe recognition for their work,…

  • Evil Dead II

    Evil Dead II

    ★★★★½

    This movie kicks ass. It is so FUN, and unique, and just amazing. I have to admit something embarrassing: I’ve only seen the first half hour or so before today, and Jesus Christ was I missing out. I loved the first one, but this one is the best of the trilogy, period. The characters are a lot more fleshed out than in the original- in that movie, the 4 supporting friends are ultimately interchangeable with each other, with little discernible…
