  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    β€œIt’s pretty hairy in there! It’s Charlie’s point!”

    β€œCharlie don’t surf!”

    How do you follow up The Godfather 2? How do you follow up perhaps the best film ever made?
    …
    You make an adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and set it in the middle of the Vietnam war…….. naturally.

    Apocalypse Now…. Hands down the best film title ever. Can we agree on that?

    The first time I saw this movie was on DVD with my dad around…

  • Mandy

    Mandy

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    "So, what are you hunting?"

    "Jesus freaks."

    "I didn't know it was the season, man."

    OK........ OK........... okie doke....... sorry it's just I'm still kinda speechless over the experience of watching Mandy.

    And let's be clear, this is more of an experience than a movie. This is some 2001: A Space Odyssey shit. There's a movie here, we'll get to it but more so this is a movie about the experience you have sitting in a theater and watching it.…

  • Bringing Out the Dead

    Bringing Out the Dead

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    "You swore you'd fire me if I came in late again, you swore!"

    "I'll fire you tomorrow!"

    Martin Scorsese and Paul Schraeder who together made Taxi Driver, Raiging Bull and The Last Temptation of Christ team up again for another dark journey into the New York City you don't see in Woody Allen movies or Seinfeld. This actually is possibly the darkest Scorsese film I've seen since Taxi Driver. The Departed is a dark movie but it's not THAT dark.…

  • Clockers

    Clockers

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    "They should blow these projects to Timbuktu."

    "Why bother? They kill themselves anyway, like one of those self cleaning ovens."

    Surprised it took me this long to see this movie since it's right up my alley. Richard Price wrote the book Clockers and adapted it to film along with Spike Lee as co-writer. Price would go on to join the writing staff of The Wire and you can tell they were influenced by either that book, this movie or both.…

  • 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.
