    It’s hard to capture philosophy on film, but I’m glad Guy tried.

    I wish Hitchcock had loved actors even half as much as he loved the camera.

    Equal parts horrific, and hilarious if kids crying in front of green screens while being attacked by puppets is your thing.

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

    β€œSome animals ain’t fit to be trained.”

    Gordy was my favorite character and the cinematic restraint from Jupe’s limited point of view was inspired. The cruel irony that once Gordy has crushed his costars, and is left alone with his own crushing remorse, he reaches out for connection and forgiveness, only to be annihilated at his most β€œhuman” moment.

    NOPE completely works as a popcorn entertainment horror film, but what’s most interesting, is that it is almost a Rorschach…

    The French New Wave is alive and strong in Norway!

    Cinematically playful in its exploration of all of the possibilities life has to offer and providing none of the answers.

    You don’t have like baseball to love this film. But daddy issues, a desire to be kind to others, and daring to dream will only enhance the experience.Β 

    Watched the last ten minutes in the gift shop at the corn field filming location in Iowa quietly sobbing as a pile full of toddlers nudged me off a bench.

    How do you reintroduce Maverick to the big screen for the first time in 35 years?

    The nostalgia porn is great, but the complete lack of Kenny Loggins is a letdown.

    Brutally beautiful on the eyes but the heart that drives the story never beat for me.

    Starship Troopers

    The comedy horror gore of TREMORS. The bug stomping of ALIENS. The military satire of DOCTOR STRANGELOVE. And all the acting chops of your favorite TV tween drama.

    At its best with the propaganda news reel satire that was a premonition of the 24 hour news cycle and click bait internet age.

    The year of Jenna HORRORTEGA is upon us.

    The convergence of seX and violence. Repression and eXplosion. Flesh and meat.

    Obvious homages to TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, PSYCHO, and the French new wave, yet very original.Β 

    Ti West is great at putting that tension on a prolonged simmer and making the killings a perverse release. Check out HOUSE OF THE DEVIL.

    This film needs to come out of the coffin and be as gay as it wants to be. πŸŒˆπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§βš°οΈ

    After eating the rich and rats for years, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt’s companionship is decaying, so Tom adopts Kirsten Dunst as a daughter to trap Brad in an abusive relationship, and Antonio Banderas wants Brad all to himself.

    Moments of camp excellence (Tom dancing and singing opera with a plague ridden corpse), flashes of great gore from the Stan Winston…
