    “You know I think that movies are a conspiracy? I mean it. I mean it. They are actually a conspiracy. Because they set you up. They set you up from the time you’re a little kid. They set you up to believe in everything. They set you up to believe in ideals and strength and good guys and romance and, of course, love. Love. So you believe it, right? You go out, you start looking. It doesn’t happen, you keep…

  • Ocean's Twelve

    Ocean's Twelve

    ★★★★½

    here is why this is my personal favorite Ocean:
    - brad’s fake laugh (and also the entire “lost in translation” scene)
    - brad’s face when he realizes his phone was stolen
    - brad’s endless wardrobe of trench coats and ill-fitting pants 
    - brad’s eating tortilla chips 
    - brad’s line delivery of “OH ... he’s mean.
    - brad’s drinking wine and wearing matching robes with george
    -brad’s flirty look at catherine zeta-jones as he’s running from the cops
    - BRAD 🥰🥰🥰

  • Belladonna of Sadness

    Belladonna of Sadness

    ★★★½

    this psychedelic animated musical erotica version of Lady Snowblood (also released 1973?!?!?!?) rules HARD once you get past the gratuitous rape scenes. the gorgeous watercolor animation makes the sexual violence a bit easier to tolerate than, say, the thematically-similar live-action Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970) ...... still a bit icky for the all-male writers to juxtapose that trauma against a montage of erotic depictions of the ‘70s sexual liberation though, imho, even when it’s drawn that beautifully and creatively!! also, not enough revenge ....... >:(

    streaming for freeeeee on kanopy (best watched dummmm stoned)

    LAST WATCH OF THE DECADE, BABY — WE’RE GOIN OUT WITH A POP!!!!!!!!!!

  • Arsenic and Old Lace

    Arsenic and Old Lace

    ★★★½

    me in 1944 when i try to distract myself from the horrors of WWII by going to the local Cinema to see the latest Cary Grant Picture and realize it’s about how Women Be Poisoning: gee ........... hope this doesn’t ..... awaken anything in me ...........

  • Les Misérables

    Les Misérables

    ★★★★½

    wild how my two favorite movie musicals of the decade (this and mamma mia! here we go again) and my favorite tv show (fleabag) and my favorite star wars (the last jedi) all feature my boy hugh skinner. no one else has the range!!! he IS the Actor of the Decade!!! this is a hugh skinner fan account now, which i’m hoping will distract everyone from the fact that i just admitted that tom hooper’s les misérables is my favorite movie musical of the decade
