    Dawn of the Dead

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    "You know Macumba? Voodoo. My granddad was a priest in Trinidad. He used to tell us, 'When there's no more room in hell... the dead will walk the earth.'"

    I'll just hop to it, this is the best film I've seen in 2018. I think if I was ranking up against even the best 2018 movies, this would come out #1. I totally had that feeling of watching a classic movie, the same feeling as watching something like Star Wars,…

  • Roma

    Roma

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Alfonso CuarΓ³n's 'Roma' is about Cleo, a maid working for and living with a doctor's family in the in the Colonia Roma district of Mexico City in 1971. In the movie we follow Cleo as she follows the family wherever they go, helping around the house or on family trips and Cleo discovers she's 4 months pregnant.

    Alfonso CuarΓ³n's a favorite director of mine. I'd imagine he's be a favorite of most movie buffs. He made the best Harry Potter…

  • Gremlins

    Gremlins

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    "And they multiply when they get wet."

    "Oh Christ..."

    Everyone knows the story, a wacky inventor gets his son a mysterious and cute creature from a curio shop in Chinatown, it's called a Mogwai... they call him Gizmo. And he comes with 3 rules and 3 rules only.

    1. Keep him away from bright lights.
    2. Don't get him wet.
    3. Don't feed him after midnight.

    Gremlins is just one of many movies I for whatever reason never saw until…

  • Back to the Future

    Back to the Future

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Watched Back to the Future. Hadn’t seen it in years. 


    β€œIt’s already mutated into human form, Shoot it!”


    *BLAM*


    β€œTAKE THAT, YOU MUTATED SON OF A BITCH!!!!”


    It’s still perfect. Just perfect. 


    The subplot of Marty wanting to prevent Doc Brown from getting shot the night he goes back in time struck a cord with me more than ever for some reason.  


    That score by Alan Silvestri is just gorgeous. Zemeckis told Silvestri they didn’t have a huge budget so…

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    The Wolf of Wall Street. I'm really kinda speechless after watching this movie. I mean.... this movie is @#$%ing INSANE! I don't just mean that in a quality sense.

    I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!

    What I will say is,

    This film.... is the Scorsese film I was waiting for after seeing The Departed.

    I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…

  • Return of the Jedi

    Return of the Jedi

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    New Review: letterboxd.com/fabischfactor/film/star-wars-episode-vi-return-of-the-jedi/1/

    8 year old me: "This is the single greatest..."
    23 year old me: "...piece of shit! What's with the teddy bears?"

    There's a LOT to like in this film. But there's more to hate.

    Yub Yub.
