  • Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    "Listen, you don't have to fight anymore" -Logan.

    - X-Men Ranked: boxd.it/1PZwO

    Including a Taco Bell commercial in the middle of a deranged man's monologue is some gangster ass product placement.

    Logan's ready to say goodbye but first he's going to go on a weird neo-western Mad Max like adventure. In Logan, Weapon X goes on a mission to help a little girl and a declining Professor X make it to a safe haven for mutants. This takes place in…

  • Selma

    Selma

    ★★★★½

    "That requires drama" - MLK Jr.

    This is a great film that accomplishes a number of impressive feats.

    (1) How do you avoid a film about the civil rights movement becoming a misery porn?

    The violence is stylized in a way that places a value on grief above brutality. In addition, the film only takes a few violent acts and really makes them count, as opposed to numbing the audience with constant violence and racism. Also, the film show whites…

  • Ghost in the Shell

    Ghost in the Shell

    ★★★★½

    "I guess once you start doubting, there's no end to it" -Batou,

    The future is full of exposed boobs and cybog ennui.

    Ghost in the Shell takes place in 2029 where most people are part technology and part human. The human essence in the machine is called the ghost. In this world, a special team of police hunts a being called the puppet master who is engaging in the hacking of minds. What follows is an animated neo-noir masterpiece

    I…

  • Scream

    Scream

    Me: It's been 57 days since I last saw Scream

  • Creep

    Creep

    ★★★★½

    "Did it make you think I might kill you?" - Joseph, yes it did.

    Hey, that's the gig economy, Aaron accepted payment.

    In creep, a man accepts $1,000 to be a videographer for a day for a dude who is kind of weird in an unsettling way... I wish I could think of the right word to describe him. Anyways, the day goes kind of weird and things go bad. It's the best. This is my fourth watch so yeah…

  • Luce

    Luce

    ★★★★½

    “I read the communist manifesto once in college and called everyone comrade for a month” -Amy, describing how my career started.

    - 2019 Ranked: boxd.it/2lsbC

    This movie is a Rorschach test for each audience member's concepts of justice and I have been declared legally insane.

    Luce was adopted from Eritrea by a white family (Tim Roth and Naomi Watts). He was being raised as a child soldier when brought to the United States at 7 and went through years of…

  • Orphan

    Orphan

    ★★★★½

    "I'm not your fucking mom" - Someone.

    - Daily Horror Hunt 15 (September '19): boxd.it/3JrCO
    Day (4) Watch any horror film featuring either Vera or Taissa Farmiga, my favorite film sisters.

    The opening scene of this film made me sterile and then the movie never lets up after that.

    In Orphan, Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard adopt a nine year old girl and the nine year old girl turns out to be crae crae to the max. As Esther begins…

  • Call Me by Your Name

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★½

    "If you only knew how little I know about the things that matter" -Elio,

    - Scavenger Hunt 54: boxd.it/3QsyW
    Task 16. Watch a film where a character finds love in Italy OR an Italian film about love. (4/30 Complete) MINOR SPOILERS

    Timothee Chalamet is either legitimately bad at pretending to smoke or is doing a great job of imitating someone who isn't really smoking.

    A professor who never works invites one of his students to not work at his house…

  • Wild at Heart

    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★½

    "You just 'bout took me right over that rainbow." - Lula,

    - Film Club Ranked: boxd.it/3M2sq
    - David Lynch Ranked: boxd.it/3Sulk
    - Nic Cage Ranked: boxd.it/2pRz8

    Willem Dafoe creepily smiling while wearing pantyhose over his head is the scariest thing I've ever seen.

    In Wild at Heart, star-crossed lovers Sailor (Cage) and Lula (Dern) must go to great lengths to share their love and avoid the series of killers that Lula's mom sends to stop that love. A surrealist and…

  • Predator

    Predator

    ★★★★½

    "There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man" -Billy,

    You'll laugh, you'll get pumped, and you'll wonder if they realized how gay some of the stuff seems.

    In Predator a bunch of oily, muscly guys who love flirting with each other are on a mission to rescue people held hostage in Central America. Things are going along horribly when a FUCKING alien shows up and starts hunting them. It is an amazing film that everyone should…

  • The Beach Bum

    The Beach Bum

    ★★★★½

    “One day, I will swallow up the world. And when I do, I hope you all perish violently.” - Moondog

    - 2019 Ranked: boxd.it/2lsbC
    - My first review- boxd.it/G0TAB

    I don't know, sometimes a movie is just that perfect combination of chill and badass.

  • Elle

    Elle

    ★★★★½

    "You're cruel when you find anything or anyone unpleasant." -The World,
    "Neither of us is drunk enough for this conversation." - Me (nif),

    - Paul Verhoeven Ranked: boxd.it/3OCCA

    One of Elle's hobbies is laughing in graveyards. This lady is super interesting.

    Elle is a cold-blooded "shut it off like a light switch" sort of lady so after being raped during a home invasion, she cleans up and gets back to justifiably harassing her son and living her life... oh, and…
