    ★★★★

    They sure don't make them like this anymore. The level of craft is incredible; every shot feels chaotically produced, yet cunningly planned. This actually felt a lot like an earlier version of Man Bites Dog, which I'm certain drew inspiration from this.

    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★½

    A24 insists that I have an existential meltdown during their movie while jerking off over the fact that they released a film with a 5 minute scene of Rooney Mara eating pie. I almost didn't see this movie because of A24's gratuitous hip & trendy marketing, but I'm really happy that this film is strong enough to speak for itself. I just wish it didn't speak so much (aka I really need a new cut of this film where the monologuing party dude is removed entirely). Apart from all that, I found this film uniquely lonely, beautiful, and definitely not lacking in the Ke$ha department.

    But I'm a Cheerleader

    ★★★★

    Michelle Williams shows up for a few minutes.

    Julie Delpy is credited as "Lipstick Lesbian."

    RuPaul plays an "ex-gay."

    No more explanation should be needed.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

    ½

    My favorite part of this movie was sitting behind Shia Labeouf, watching Shia Labeouf cringe and sink into his seat, then falling asleep for a minute, waking up, noticing Shia has left his seat, and turning my head to see Shia Labeouf passed out on the ground next to me. Then, when some fan tried to wake him up, he aggressively pulled a jacket over his head. He did not want to see Transformers 2.
