    House of Gucci

    ★★½

    so brave that every single person that worked on this, from the director down to the editors, the cinematographers, the actors, EVERYONE!! was hit in the head with a big hammer every hour on the hour during the production of this film

  • No Sudden Move

    No Sudden Move

    ★★★½

    stevey sodey does it* again!!!

    *makes a perfectly competent and entertaining movie with a stacked cast that doesn’t quite do it for me but is better than like 90% of wide releases going and definitely 99% of shit made for streaming services

    took our niece and nephew; cute movie with good animation about figuring out which one of your uncles is gay

  • Spencer

    Spencer

    ★★

    personally i hate it when i have to be in the palace and not the mansion i grew up in next door. and to boot i am not given access to my favorite servant, merely one of the other servants 

    pretty well made, but in service of: ??

  • The French Dispatch

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★½

    I...liked it? for the most part? I vibe with mr. anderson so i enjoyed myself enough, but i couldn't shake the feeling that it was something intensely personal to him that just wasn't connecting with yours truly. every performance is great, my man knows what to point the camera at, i love the handmade effects, etc etc etc, but something left me wanting a little bit, the middle story in particular. Felt on some level like a less-successful version of…

  • Gladiator

    Gladiator

    ★★★

    i love to write this movie and name the guy who kicks maximum ass “maximus” and the guy in his close proximity “proximo”

    anyway ralphie cifaretto was right for the most part. fun stuff man. rip angel

  • The Sign of the Cross

    The Sign of the Cross

    ★★★½

    a very very well shot film about how it is insane to be a christian!!

    all you hear about this movie is that it was so bugnuts that basically it caused the implementation of the Hayes Code, but it’s especially wild if that’s true CONSIDEring all the lascivious stuff is in service of a firmly moralistic view - one that’s absolutely certain that heaven is waiting for all good christians. reminds me of one of my least favorite current tics…

  • 2010

    2010

    ★★½

    big "what was the point of this" hours whomst is up!!!!

    a very boring film that doesn't get up to much and feels like It Has Something to Say but doesn't really if you think about it for more than two seconds. I appreciate the swing away from tone from 2001, because how would one bother topping or trying to replicate that, but every 25 minutes or so it's like "hey remember that other, better movie?"

    I guess it's cool that the USSR exists in 2010 in this scenario but what are you gonna do

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★

    stray thoughts only!!! 

    -production design very cool
    -i can see how watching this on a laptop in your bed, you might think it doesn’t look very good! glad i saw this in a theater because it looked cool as hell
    -loving jason momoa’a career trajectory of taking extant genre characters and instead saying: “what if this guy was a dude”
    -fat suit very stupid and bad! why are we still doing this
    -surprised at how much i liked timmy chimmy…

    Halloween Kills

    ok so

    1. i was downtown and cracked my phone screen and had to go get it fixed and the place said it was going to take two hours BUT there was a movie theater across the street BUT this was the only thing playing in a timeframe that worked EVEN THOUGH i have never seen any of the other Halloween films except for the first one mostly silent on at parties and bars 

    2. this is a movie about…
