    Good Time


    I am so not on board with this movie. So stressful and just disgusting. I mean, that’s what it’s going for, and it’s effective, but I did not enjoy this at all. Even as the very last scene tried to make it something redeeming, I only felt manipulated. Kinda hated it, really.

    Predator 2


    A ridiculous (and fun) parody of itself, with a “Dirty Harry” Danny Glover, a great Silvestri score, and a subway train full of handguns.

    The Matrix


    After newly calibrating my projector, I notice the subtlety of the green cast of the imagery from inside the matrix. It's mostly in the flesh tones, and doesn't usually affect the black leather or dark, rainy streets, which stay pretty neutral, or even lean a tiny bit blue. An impressive and subtle color grade.

    Saw a film print at the opening of the Noir City festival. I’d forgotten how much I liked that film. So great seeing it with an audience who actually laughed at the snappy jokes and the bald sexism.
