    The Big Lebowski

    ★★★★½

    Very surprised but also happy to see this held upover 5 years later, as being the absolutely hilarious, absurd odyssey that I once remembered it as. I shaved my beard for this and it was worth it

  • Baby Face

    ★★★★

    I never thought I would turn into this type of letterboxd reviewer, but I too would ruin my life for Barbara Stanwyck. She’s legit so freaking good in this. Such a fun performance paired with a silly, over-the-top story, but I actually really liked the dramatic turn in the final act too. Well-rounded movie.

    ★½

    Infiltrating the homophobic G-Force discord server during the stream was a real G-Force moment for me

  • Mon Oncle

    Mon Oncle

    ★★★★

    Watched the English language version. I might have preferred it? It's 10 minutes shorter so it makes the movie fly by just a bit quicker. Some of the gags they cut out were funny but it's a good trade-off I think.

  • We're All Going to the World's Fair

    We're All Going to the World's Fair

    ★★½

    Loving the ideas that were present here but the final product reeks of missed potential.

  • Kamikaze Taxi

    Kamikaze Taxi

    ★★★★

    Really subversive crime revenge drama that turns into a Sonantine-esque road-movie with a chill hangout vibe. This really felt like watching a condensed TV show honestly, every 30 minutes the characters arrive at a new location and spend some time there either pushing the plot forward or evaluating new aspects of their trauma. The characters felt pretty complete by the end and although some things may have gone over my head thematically, I still found a lot to enjoy about this.

  • The Innkeepers

    The Innkeepers

    ★★½

    Appreciate the slow-burn chill vibe to this but I wanted it to lead to a something a bit more substantial, with a bit more oomph. Lead character is really well-defined. And that final shot was great too. A little letdown though, as different as it feels to a lot of other modern horror it doesn't do too much else to make it stand out.

  • Goodbye, Don Glees!

    Goodbye, Don Glees!

    ★★½

    A very predictable and somewhat basic “Stand By Me” type story didn’t stop this from being an enjoyable watch for me. The characters had decent banter and there was at least one solid twist thrown in there. Though I hated how hard it tried to make me cry though, there were like three sequences where the music swelled up to 120% emotion in the last 30 minutes. A little more subtlety would have gone a long way.

  • Safety Last!

    Safety Last!

    ★★★★

    Gag after gag after gag after gag. And they all landed. A teeny bit more cynical than something like Chaplin’s big beating heart that I prefer, but still def one of the great silent comedies I’ve seen so far.

  • Bodies Bodies Bodies

    Bodies Bodies Bodies

    ★★★

    Better than I thought it was going to be, but still nothing revolutionary. Thought some of the most important scenes were bogged down by moments of poor writing, this movie is rife with misunderstanding to the point where it gets extremely frustrating as an audience. Could’ve used more Lee Pace. It could also be quite funny at times, but the type of comedy it shoots for is the annoying kind, so even if it did make me chuckle, I was still annoyed. :hi:

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★½

    The 35mm print perfectly complimented how gruff and dirty this movie feels. Definitely incredible to watch in a theater, shout out to that guy who breathed a sigh of relief after the first act of action cut to black and muttered to himself “holy shit…”. Everyone heard. Everyone agreed.

  • Super Mario Bros.

    Super Mario Bros.

    ★★

    Watched the fan-made extended cut. A lot better, more coherent, but this still sadly falls into a lot of boring tropes and fails to make the most of the world it builds.
