Current Favorite Films: 🎬
My favorite movies of 2022...so far.
"James Bond. We both eradicate people to make the world a better place. I just want to be a little tidier."
James Bond has left MI6 and is living off the grid in Jamaica when he agrees to help Felix Leiter and the CIA track down a madman on a mission of revenge against SPECTRE.
This it it, Daniel Craig's (Madeleine) Swann song as 007. This five episode Craig series has been the most unique period of the entire series.…
"It was all me, James. It's always been me. The author of all your pain."

"Have you come to destroy me, Obi-Wan?"
The long-awaited story of just what happened to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in the period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

"Yer fond of me lobster, ain't ye?" 🦐
This movie is a descent into madness, in more ways than one. It looks like Ingmar Bergman's Mutiny on the Bounty but has elements of many other cinematic works of art. It is, however, its own beast, and what a wild and crazy one it is too.
Beautifully filmed in foreboding black and white in some old fashioned boxy aspect ratio, you're suddenly transported right there to the same lighthouse rock. The…
