    The Last Temptation of Christ

    ★★★★★

    Pontius Pilate: It's one thing to want to change the way people live; but, you want to change how they think, how they feel.
    Jesus: All I'm saying is that change will happen with love, not with killing.
    Pontius Pilate: Either way, it's dangerous. It's against Rome. It's against the way the world is. And killing or loving, it's all the same. It simply doesn't matter how you want to change things. We don't want them changed.

    I’m drunk.

    At least, that is what I wrote the last time I watched The Tree of Life. Looking at the date of that entry on Letterboxd, October 14th, 2016, I know it was exactly five days before my last (and worst) night of drinking – and believe me when I say I had many, many horrendous nights of drinking back while I was still at it, so for that one to be the worst, you *know* it must have…

    In many ways, this is the blueprint for The Wolf of Wall Street. Same scope, similar structure, similar use of narration, similar pacing, even a somewhat similar story if you trade out the murder for defrauding and the cocaine for, well, cocaine. And yet, I think The Wolf of Wall Street is a better film. Why? I’m not sure. Maybe it speaks to my own personal experience and the America I know more directly. I honestly couldn’t tell you. But…

    Many people have independently told me I look like the little shithead kid with the glasses who was also in Stuart Little and that INFURIATES ME TO NO END.

    This movie is blatant NBA propaganda, but it has moments of comedic genius, whether intentional or not. Lil Bow Wow flies TEN FEET THROUGH THE AIR and people are like, “Yeah, you got some game.” Like, this child just defied the laws of physics. This has nothing to do with “game”…

    I remember back when this girl and I were still together, she once asked me when I fell in love with her. I told her it was like a house you pass every day on the way to work. One day, you notice a for sale sign on an empty lot. Another day you drive by and you notice they've laid the foundations. Another day, the walls are up, and another day there's a roof, a garage, and finally a…

    Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

    ★★★★

    Fact: Cowboy Bebop is the greatest show to have ever aired on television, animated or otherwise.

    Fact: this movie is two hours of Cowboy Bebop.

    Fact: this movie is two hours of the greatest show to have ever aired on television, animated or otherwise.

    Fact: this was bloody fucking awesome and it makes me miss this beautiful show even more than I already did.

    See you, space cowboy.
