• Bad Seed

    Bad Seed

    ★★

    Amusingly enough this is filled with the exact same type of classic "student film" rookie mistakes that you see a lot of kids making today, except this was made nearly 100 years ago. People never change. This film was impressively dull despite the amusement that came from that and the occasional, every once-in-a-while sharp joke.

    Can't say I'm surprised, it's more or less what I expected coming from the 2.9-rated first film of a screenwriter turned director. This is what…

  • Sullivan's Travels

    Sullivan's Travels

    ★★★½

    Kind of super messily-plotted, and it doesn’t nearly take the premise as far as I wanted it to go, but man do these two leads have chemistry together. The writing is also pretty witty and consistently funny. And I love how the whole thing ends up being an ode to making people laugh. Very me-core message.

  • Double Indemnity

    Double Indemnity

    ★★★★½

    Can always count on Billy to deliver a truly monumentally great film after watching mostly just “decent” flicks (non-rewatches) for the past 1-2 weeks. The dialogue here and Billy’s sensibilities when it comes to noir makes me truly excited to revist Sunset Boulevard, whenever that happens.

  • The Three Little Pigs

    I'm gonna start quoting this in my day to day life and make my loved ones confused for my mental well being

  • Hotel Transylvania: Transformania

    Hotel Transylvania: Transformania

    ★★★

    Somehow kinda fun and better than 2 and 3 despite lacking Genndy and Sandler’s presence. How tf does that work

  • The Marriage Circle

    The Marriage Circle

    ★★★★

    The plot got a bit too repetitive for me with how many circles in ran within itself (intentionally), but man is this movie just hysterical. The Doll didn’t have me totally convinced, but it turns out Lubitsch still had his golden touch back in the early days of his silents.

  • Synecdoche, New York

    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★★

    Rewatched because The Rehearsal has reaaallyy been creating this itch for me to finally revisit this film. It’s still one of the most impressive and complete films I’ve ever seen. Every single aspect of the filmmaking process is pushed and used to (what seems like to me at least) their maximum potential in order to tell this extremely bizarre, unique story. The writing, editing, music, sets, and especially the performances. It feels like the work of a seasoned master and I cannot believe it was Charlie’s debut. What a guy.

  • Kiki's Delivery Service

    Kiki's Delivery Service

    ★★★★½

    "I'm still in training to become a witch. If I lose my magic that means I've lost absolutely everything."

    The themes in this were always apparent and appreciated by me but for some reason (I know exactly why) they hit me so much harder on this watch. I've felt exactly as Kiki has felt for weeks now and watching this while having a good quiet cry in the theater was just the emotional relief I've been craving.

  • Resurrection

    Resurrection

    ★★★½

    “I am a good mother.”

    Idk what I expected but this was not it. Truly perplexing, demented stuff here. This was not enjoyable to watch at all, in the best way possible. Rebecca Hall is building a seriously insane portfolio of incredible performances. Hers might be the best of 2022.

  • Night Is Short, Walk on Girl

    Night Is Short, Walk on Girl

    ★★★★★

    You are not alone. You are connected to others. Even if you want to remain alone, you are connected to others no matter what. Never forget to grab happiness with your own two hands!
