    Watched w/YMS Commentary

    I feel like there's some kind of Mandela Effect going around with this movie, because not once is the line "It's time for the remix!" ever uttered by any character. Half an hour in, Catwoman (Halle Berry) says "Then let me try the remix", but not "It's time for the remix". Get it straight, people.

    ★★★★½

    It may seem odd—downright puzzling, even—to decide on Blue Velvet being my formal introduction to the infamously bizarre David Lynch, given its reputation for being among his sickest, ugliest cinematic nightmares.

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

    I started school again pretty recently, and have been trying to adjust to that for a little while, so that's why my I'm Thinking of Ending Things review is taking way too long to come out. It should be online in the next few days or so, and my Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind review should be done by September 27 (next Sunday) [NOTE: NEITHER OF THOSE THINGS HAPPENED, AND THE ETERNAL SUNSHINE REVIEW WAS NEVER COMPLETED. OH WELL]…
