    I heard a theory yesterday that Will Smith slapped Chris Rock so that Shark Tales isn't the first thing that pops up when you search "Will Smith Oscar". this has nothing to do with the 1991 recording of Into The Woods, but none of you are interested in that, anyways.

  • The Fugitive

    The Fugitive

    ★★★★½

    "I thought you didn't care"
    "I don't"

    exudes John Grisham and Michael Crichton based-on-a-book kind of energy; with seamless chapters of hazy hospital rooms, narrow escapes, and flashbacks. while it's hard to believe that this started as a script, it's not so hard to believe it was edited by a team of six people. six people sounds about right.

  • Singin' in the Rain

    Singin' in the Rain

    ★★★★½

    someone once performed the titular number for a school project and I volunteered to be the policeman, because I too am mad when people are able to enjoy the weather

  • Iron Man

    Iron Man

    ★★★½

    think of a better example of chaos theory than this. Disney takes a down-on-his-luck barely touched Hollywood star and puts him on the pedestal for a surprisingly good live action superhero movie, which in turn leads to 20+ bad ones and Jon Favreau directing a live action Lion King.

  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    ★★½

    not awful. watched for Bale. enjoyed the parts with Bale. those shadow creatures were stupid though and really drew away from the strength of his performance. but again not awful and the credits looked cool.

  • Into the Woods

    Into the Woods

    ½

    unbelievably unfunny and 100% unoriginal, with a half gutted story and mutilated songs that don't even resemble Sondheim. and I know you're saying, "hey Judah, you like the Hooper Les Mis, isn't that movie like this one", and the answer to that is no. I couldn't possibly know how to begin that conversation. this movie has less flavor than oxygen, except oxygen keeps me alive and this makes me want to die. the baker should have remained childless.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★

    idk. incredibly passible. like, sooo acceptable it's annoying. it's not bold. but it's also not stale. what could I possibly say about it? it's a 3 hour cookie cutter genre film. built to last. doesn't get better a second time, not for me anyways. I may give it 3 and a half stars next watch. or 2 and a half. who knows? doesn't matter. I gave it four the first time. to anyone who's offended by this, sorry? I like Fraser here and I like all the emo stuff. but it's no La La Land (2016)

  • The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

    "I wonder if it remembers me"

    I was right. the credits were inspired by buckaroo banzai. a few years back I planned to parody those credits myself, too. wanted to make a whole video. honest to god.

    anyways this was a criterion watch. turns out you can buy tears 50% off at B&N. 🦈

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    in the end when Strange is fixing a watch there's a macro shot of his finger and I thought, "wow Benedict has a huge vein on his finger", but then I realized that his characters' hands were supposed to be like that and this revelation was the most meaningful thing that happened to me while I watched Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

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

    Butler's gonna get an Oscar (for obvious reasons), Baz is gonna get his best picture nod (cause the Oscars does that kind of thing) and Netflix is gonna get their hands on it so you watch it with ads just in time for awards season
