    ★★★½

    A lot of modern black-and-white films have posters that reflect the color palette of the movie. Frances Ha, however, has a vibrant pink poster that contrasts other monochromatic films. I'm sure there's a reason for that.

  • Joe Hill

    Joe Hill

    ★★★★

    Enjoyed this significantly more than I thought I would. Tons of great little moments that make Joe Hill and his cause feel more complete. It's great that this was remastered after almost 40 years of being unavailable. Watched on youtube.

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★½

    Nearly perfect from a technical standpoint, I love the sound. The beautiful yet haunting score is fantastic, and the sound designs of scarjo just walking around is incredible, it's like this crazy blend where you feel like you can hear everything going on yet nothing is clear. It fits great into the themes of identity and uses the woman's point of view (and hearing).

  • It Follows

    It Follows

    ★★★½

    I feel like David Robert Mitchell is a much stronger director than he is writer. This and Under the Silver Lake suffer from the same problems for me, where there is some crazy impressive camerawork, solid performances (especially by Maika Monroe in this movie), and engaging editing. However, I also feel as if both scripts are fundamentally flawed, especially the further into the movie. In It Follows, the movie seems to lose steam and I didn't feel as engaged as…

    Countdown

    shortest COUNTDOWN to when I called a movie bad (get it?). I wasn't out of the studio logos before I dubbed it shitty.

    ALSO I only watched this because I had a dream about it,

  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One

    I no longer fundamentally believe in the open internet. I want to live my life as a peasant boy in the 1600s. I think I'd rather die of the bubonic plague than watch this pile of shit ever again.

    Update: I wrote that part two minutes in. I'm at The Shining Part now and this feels like desecration. And I don't really love The Shining. Also, here's a quote: "He kept track of every movie he ever saw down to…

    Could've been best of the year if someone without fucking pudding for brains read the script and realized how fucking dumb it is
