    How in the name of Zeus's BUTTHOLE did Nicolas Cage become an action hero? Look at the trajectory of the Greatest Coppola's (fucking fight me on this, I dare you) career before "The Rock".

    Actually, when you look at Cage's career, anything makes perfect sense. Why wouldn't you move from winning an Oscar playing a man trying to drink himself to death to playing a Beatlemaniac chemical superfreak who takes on terrorists alongside James Bond himself? I wish more actors…

    ★★★½

    Everyone famously tried to talk Clint Eastwood out of making this movie, but clearly if Clint Eastwood wants to drink beers, punch people and drive around with an orangutan then he's damned well going to do it. The joke was on everyone else, because Clint scowled all the way to the bank (Clint seems to wear a perpetual scowl, so that doesn't mean he wasn't happy...it just means that he was Clint Eastwood).

    "Every Which Way But Loose" is firmly…

    Steamboat Round the Bend

    ★★★½

    Will Rogers plays an amiable, yet rascally, dude who buys a broken-down steamboat and, with the help of an old drunk and a black stereotype, gets it into prime condition. Unfortunately, his nephew Duke, who is supposed to help him pilot the steamboat, kills a man in self defense after falling in love with a "swamp woman" (Anne Shirley) and winds up on death row.

    What follows is a series of episodic adventures involving the steamboat that Rogers turns into…

    For my entire life I have known the name "Evel Knievel". But I never really knew anything specific about him. I knew, vaguely, that he was a daredevil who rode a motorcycle. I knew that he was hot shit during the 1970s. But that was the extent of my knowledge.

    So I decided to watch "Being Evel" to better understand who Evel Knievel was and why his name was still famous. "Being Evel" serves as a pretty interesting primer about…

    Marisa Tomei winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress was long considered one of the biggest screw-ups in Oscar history. She was considered undeserving, her performance too light and insubstantial for an award.

    If you hold this opinion, I respect your viewpoint. But you can also go fuck yourself.

    If you can watch the scene at the end where Marisa explains positraction on the witness stand without smiling, and without marveling at how fully and beautifully Marisa Tomei hijacks the…

    There's a tendency of this site to immediately overrate new movies. And I get it. Seeing a film in the theater has a bewitching effect. When you're used to seeing movies on your TV or, God forbid, your tablet, the charge of seeing something projected as large as possible in a big, dark room alone makes a movie a little better. If that movie's even remotely great, then all the better. Letterboxd isn't the only social media site to stoke…
