    Better Luck Tomorrow

    ★★★★

    model minority myth succinctly addressed but greater antecedent roots of asian american masculinity are still begging to be excavated, even 20 years on.

  • Police Story

    Police Story

    ★★★★★

    Dude in the grey jacket that gets thrown out of the upper part of the bus had it the worst of anybody for sure. 

    Watched some of the CC features afterward; god damn, find me someone who has put more love and passion and blood into their art than Jackie. You can’t. Conversely, you’d also be pressed to find anybody as absolutely masochistic and crazy. This dude is like “yeah, it’d be pretty bad if I fell while running down this massive cement hill, but I would’t die, sooo…”

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★★★

    Fully did not realize that this was a Predator movie when I put it on but I think it only added to the excitement lol. Some great juicy kills and generally well-hidden CGI bring it home, especially loved when she invents a 绳镖 and solos 5 French dudes with guns.

  • Body Double

    Body Double

    ★★★★

    Telescopic Titillation. Also terribly, terribly silly.  

    >Be me, starving actor and cuckold. 
    >See a woman walking alone. That can be dangerous, maybe I should see where she goes to make sure she gets there safely.
    >Might be weird if I walk up and tell her though, so I’ll just follow her at a safe distance in case anything happens. 
    >She walked all the way around the block, she must not be from around here. Good thing I’m here to…

  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★½

    “But that’s not her. That’s only her in a movie. A long time ago. In a galaxy far, far away.”

    Wow, just… wow. 

    The space, the liminality, the RED!!! Discovering Travis alongside Travis, on and on down the hyperbolic highway.

    Just a few moments I’ll never forget: 
    -Walking home on opposite sides of the road
    -Eating lunch in the truck bed under the concrete jungle
    -The fog around LA
    -The fog over Houston
    -Red as blood and love and passion, but also as fire. 
    -Every single horizon line, spanning infinitely.

  • Emergency

    Emergency

    ★★★★½

    I’ve told people to watch this movie for months and nobody has done so, you’re all like “eeuhhhh but that sounds sooo stressful Jackson 🥵” 

    Just watch it yall, its great. Really refreshing stuff, and genuinely hilarious too.

  • The Gray Man

    The Gray Man

    ★★

    Chris Evans you are so corny please stop. 

    At one point Gosling gets dramatically framed between two computer monitors running League of Legends. 

    Action is good for 2 moments right at the beginning and for a brief nostril exhalation towards the end when you get to be like “oh hey it’s like The Shining wow amazing 😐”

  • Double Indemnity

    Double Indemnity

    ★★★★

    “Shut up, baby.”

    Love me some diegetic narration.

    Haunted Hopeless Handover

    Score as good as the fashion is bad 😭

  • The Bob's Burgers Movie

    The Bob's Burgers Movie

    ★★★

    Cute! Looks good with the 3D elements, standard Bob’s Burgers with more depth (of field). Jokes are funny, musical numbers are fine, the flanderization is real.

  • Unstoppable

    Unstoppable

    ★★★★½

    IT’S A MISSILE THE SIZE OF THE CHRYSLER BUILDING 

    Entire mix goes crazy but THAT TONE AND THE ZOOM on the speedometer is the easiest dopamine hit of my life, might be a new-old instant favorite.

    “I don’t want to live on through my art. I just want to live. I just want to live in my flat with you.”

    idk what happened here tonight but i am inconsolable after this, Anders is a god.
