    Fantastic Planet

    ★★★★

    One of the most bizarre films I've ever seen. It's not just that imagery is like an acid trip or fever dream, but that it's depicted in such a neutral, emotionless tone, as if we're watching an ancient history or biology book come to life. Essential viewing for weirdos.

    Bodies Bodies Bodies

    ★★★

    I expected more of a tightly structured slasher and less of a loose comedy, but I did legitimately laugh like 15 times. The self-deprecating roast of privileged Zoomers is cathartic.

    It's an unattractive film and too shapeless, but a good time nonetheless.

  • Pinocchio

    Pinocchio

    Ugly, tacky, and soulless. The old stuff that's been recreated is vastly diminished in heart or visual impact. The changes are pointless fluff. The new songs and quips are horseshit. Zemeckis halfheartedly tries to smooth out the choppy narrative of the original Pinocchio, but manages to mangle it and make it even worse. And the screenplay gets messier and lazier as the runtime goes, so watching the movie feels like a spiral descent to hell.

    The only thing saving me…

  • WALL·E

    WALL·E

    ★★★★★

    I've always had a hard time figuring out just where to place WALL·E in the Pixar pantheon for a couple reasons, the biggest of which is that WALL·E is a rare masterpiece that gets steadily less interesting across its runtime. The more the movie focuses on the fat humans and environmentalism parable, the more it feels like a run-of-the-mill good movie; and the less it feels like a generationally profound piece of cinema.

    The movie's first hour really is that…
