    I've come to realize that most horror movies would end about an hour earlier if the men actually listened to the women

    "The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That's guaranteed. I can't begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else. But guess what? Sunday's my favorite day again. I think of what everyone did for me, and I feel like a very lucky guy."

    such a comfort movie for me. also, I HAVE to remember to watch this again at Christmastime. the last half hour makes this a valid Christmas movie

    THIS IS AMAZING I'M SO MAD AT MYSELF FOR ONLY JUST NOW WATCHING IT!!! HALLOWEEN CLASSIC

    can't believe they actually PULLED OFF characters saying "this isn't a movie" without it being cringe

    also 1996 Skeet Ulrich... yeah

    rewatched for gender studies class. this focuses a good bit on the intersectionality of race and gender identity, specifically when it comes to media portrayal. I would highly recommend watching this, ESPECIALLY if you watched Dave Chappelle's latest special and found nothing wrong with it.

    if I had been like 15 when this came out it would have dictated my entire aesthetic & personality and I would have been insufferable. thankfully I was nine. I'm still insufferable, but at least not in a quirky millennial IKEA sort of way. I do like the smiths though. today's my birthday so I'm doing some self-reflecting.

    my first time watching a Bond film! I really liked it, despite thinking I wouldn't

    would love it if every movie had intricate opening credit sequences set to Billie Eilish songs from now on.

    he spends the ENTIRE special saying homophobic and transphobic shit only to pull a "I'm not transphobic, I have a trans friend" at the end.

    My subconscious reason for not watching this yet was that I thought the poster looked boring and I’M SORRY THIS WAS AMAZING

    Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi at 21: preparing to rule a small country, having an enemies to lovers romance with Chris Pine, changing the sexist laws in her society

    me at 21: believe it or not, doing none of those things (yet)

    ★★★★

    you know it’s a good film when you guess the twist halfway through, but you still feel what you’re supposed to when it’s revealed

    that’s my subtle way of bragging that I guessed the twist 😎
