    RIP to an absolute legend

    Norm Macdonald was legitimately one of the funniest person around.

    Shame he never got to truly live tho, cause as far as I know he never did it with a bearded lady.

    ★★★★½

    Without this movie there wouldn't be the stairway sequence in The Untouchables.

    And without that sequence we wouldn't have the hilarious stairway scene from The Naked Gun 3.

    So I guess what I'm trying to say is thanks communism for all the laughs!

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★½

    Big dumb fun! Maybe it's just because it's been a long while since I've seen a blockbuster in the theaters but I was genuinely impressed by the CGI in this, especially considering the pretty awful standard that this very studio has set in the past few years with visual effects.

    Also loved when Harley Quinn got her Midsommar flower queen moment.

  • All Hands on Deck

    All Hands on Deck

    ★★★½

    Quintessential summer vacation movie, it captures the season's vibes perfectly, from the ephemeral nature of newly formed relationships to the fleeting innocence that one rediscovers while taking a break away from daily routine life. Brac keeps the conflict in his film to a minimum which makes it a real delight to watch.

    Kinda crazy how this is one of the least popular movie of Miyazaki's catalog since it is one of his very best. While technically not a Studio Ghibli production (which didn't exist at the time of release), it can be seen as an honorary member because it practically introduces everything that would define the studio's outings later on.

    Bold, unique, and sadly still relevant, Nausicaä is a clear labor of love, and while you could say the same for pretty…

    ★★★½

    I had no plans of watching this as the poster didn't make it seem like something that would interest me a whole lot, but when I saw that the names of Phil Lord and Chris Miller were attached to this project I decided to give it a shot, and I sure am glad I did!

    This movie is charming and the story is good, but it really stands out because of its fresh animation style, very reminiscent of the studio's…

    ★★★★

    Solid filmmaking, it goes a lot deeper and darker than I thought this would be, most likely because of the very unfortunate circumstances surrounding the making of this movie, but I'm glad it didn't devolve into an anti-alcohol PSA like we so often see either. You know what? Foolish of me to even think this was a possibility in a piece of Danish culture.

  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    ★★★★★

    No one can direct adventurous action sequences quite like Spielberg could during the peak of his career and wouldn't you know it, this movie is made up of iconic action set pieces succeeding one another from beginning to end. The classic John Williams score transports you right in the heart of this story and you're pretty much sucked in for the rest of this amazing journey towards the Holy Grail. It's the kind of movie that somehow makes you want to become both an archaeologist and a filmmaker just because of how cool it is!

    Also this is Sean Connery's best role don't @ me.

    ★★★★

    I love characters using Brooklyn accents where it has absolutely no place to be and I gotta say Ancient Greece is pretty up there for that, probably second only to Jesus himself in The Last Temptation of Christ.

    Can't wait for Margot Robbie in a bubble bath to explain to us how Wall Street lost billions because of 🚀 meme stocks 🚀 in the sequel

    The Aviator

    ★★★½

    Unbeknownst to me quarantine plays a big role in this movie so it ended up being a pretty topical watch.

    First of all, the cast is ridiculously stacked, just look at it for yourself. Overall, this is a pretty good biopic and the filmmaking is definitely above average, but with it's almost three-hour runtime it's overlong considering how it is not especially interesting in certain parts (a problem I didn't have with other Scorsese biopics of the same length such…
