    The Lighthouse


    "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 foghorn…

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems


    The film opens with an inside look at Adam Sandler's colon, and then it blasts off into a stressful series of events that leave you white-knucklin' it for the entirety of the movie.

    Adam Sandler is in the zone here, the stench of Sandy Wexler is quickly fading. If Jonah Hill can be Oscar nominated twice for an Oscar, then the academy can surely throw a nom at Sandler for this, he's outstanding! The whole cast is, actually. This movie…

    Forrest Gump


    No other movie shows you life like Forrest Gump. We've all lived through history and been through some stuff. This movie eerily mirrors my own life in certain scenes and just gets to me. Probably does the same for the millions of people who love it too. It's a beloved classic that will live on for many more generations to come.

    One thing that really stood out on this rewatch was the score by Alan Silvestri. It squeezes you by…

    This live-action version of The Little Mermaid is the best of Disney's recent remake-athon!

    I must have watched this classic fifty times years ago on cable TV. I love the comedy and the fairy tale aspect. The script is tight and hilarious. This is the movie where Hanks exploded, and deservedly so. John Candy drinking a beer while playing squash is my spirit animal. He also was in big demand after the success of this movie. Daryl Hannah is beyond…

    Saving Private Ryan


    It's difficult to remember now, but this star-studded cast was not yet all that famous at the time. This is an incredible onslaught to the senses, especially that opening scene on the beach. It's chaos, it's terrifying, but it's still probably nowhere as terrifying as having been there for real. Still one of the most harrowing war movies ever made.

    I've read complaints about this movie, that Spielberg includes "too much of his trademark sentiment." If ever there were a…

  • The Green Mile

    The Green Mile


    Absolutely powerful and magnificent adaptation of Stephen King's novel. Full of beautiful human moments, and some pretty ugly ones too, this is still Stephen King, after all!

    Frank Darabont and Stephen King go together like cookies and milk. Every time he adapts one of King's works it goes on to become a beloved classic. Why doesn't he just do them all?

    This was a rewatch for me, and maybe it's because he has passed away since, but Michael Clarke Duncan…
