• A Haunting in Venice

    A Haunting in Venice


    the least mid one is still mid, but when kenneth branagh locks the doors and says ‘one of you is the murderer’ or something like that- that shit rocks every time.

  • The Green Mile

    The Green Mile


    i miss frank darabont making movies. him and stephen king stories are so hand-in-glove perfect for each other, it makes me mad we’ll probably never get his version of the stand or something.

    the green mile is ~magic~ and i won’t hear any different. michael clarke duncan was incredible and i hope i never get a bladder infection.

  • Theater Camp

    Theater Camp


    i’ve played music on a stage in front of five people and hundreds and i’m still entirely envious of the shameless confidence theater kids have. in any moment, they are happier than i ever will be.

    funny and cute movie. i hope this is to kids today what heavyweights and camp nowhere was to me.

  • A Matter of Life and Death

    A Matter of Life and Death


    “for its time” feels dismissive in ways, but man is it visually staggering for its time. saccharine in love and life, but that’s the entire point, isn’t it?

    there’s a very weird ‘ain’t america swell’ moment, but hey WWII had just ended- i suppose it seemed pretty swell at the time.

  • The Pelican Brief

    The Pelican Brief


    a shadowy american government paranoia plot was catnip for pakula. 90s julia roberts is catnip for me.

  • Out of Sight

    Out of Sight


    the entire hotel sequence is soderbergh’s best and sexiest movie. the other hour and fifty-five minutes are his second best movie.

  • Stop Making Sense

    Stop Making Sense


    as expected, jerry harrison was the least weird person during the q&a and that includes spike lee.

    few things put a huge dumb smile on my face like everyone running in place during life during wartime or tina weymouth’s funny little knee dancing or david byrne playing with a lamp at the end of this must be the place. absolutely joyful. full of joy.

  • One False Move

    One False Move


    love me a 90s southern gothic noir killer thriller.

    they should teach what bill paxton was doing in this in acting classes. dude was in three different movies by the time this wrapped up and all of em were awesome.

  • Lost in Translation

    Lost in Translation


    in the scarlett-johansson-stars-in-both-partners’-respective-movies-about-their-relationship cinematic universe, this is my least favorite, but it’s aged really, really well for me. now, being right in the middle of charlotte and bob age-wise, it has way more of an impact on me than it did when i was 16. doesn’t make me wanna visit tokyo anymore than it did then though.

  • GoodFellas



    everyday i resist watching this is just another day further away from god’s (scorsese’s) light.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem


    the teenage mutant ninja turtles are fun again! it’s fun to have fun, guys. and it’s fun to live in a world where ice cube plays a giant mutant fly that quotes early ice t lyrics.

    incredibly charmed by the voice acting from the four kids. incredibly happy that reznor and ross keep throwing heaters. kind of glad to still be interminably online for once so that i know what rizz means.

  • Zodiac



    drop the “the.” just.. “zodiac.” it’s cleaner.
