    Beavis and Butt-Head Do America

    ★★★½

    Years ago when I first started taking adderall for my ADHD I was given generics that were in liquid form. Anyways being a dumb 13 year old I didn’t know that Ml and Mg were different things so I ended up measuring wrong and taking 100 mg instead of the 10 that I was supposed to. Let me just say I’m pretty sure buttheads doing the same thing, either that or he’s straight up smoking meth in high school.

    Felt like watching a TED talk but the speaker just dropped 8 tabs of acid and keeps rambling on for 12 times longer than any TED talk has the right to be

  • Requiem for a Dream

    Requiem for a Dream

    ★★

    Darren Aranofsky’s style has to say the very least always intrigued me. It’s very emotive in a way that works well with certain narratives, but can come off as clunky and overdone in others, such as this one. Frankly his style while sparkly, does not work synchronously with this surface level story of addiction, and when his style is stripped away that is really all this movie is: an albeit very well made, melodramatic DARE video. While information on drug…

  • Saw III

    Saw III

    ★★★

    Both far smarter and far stupider than the first two movies, but at least it actually had a SAW as central to its plotline unlike 2.

    ★★★

    Watching this movie literally increased my shrug by 100 pounds

  • Saw II

    Saw II

    ★½

    This movie really tried hard to live up to the original. Unfortunately it failed not do so in most aspects. But introducing more characters into the traps they are unable to be fleshed out a physiologically unraveled like the two in the first movie. Each character is bland and one dimensional anyways, and we really have no resin to care about their fates. By making the traps more graphic it takes away the mystique and honestly more terrifying mental horror…

  • Saw

    Saw

    ★★★★

    This is the quintessential movie of my childhood, despite having not seen it until now.

    Growing up in the early 2010’s there was so much mythology surrounding this movie. Kids talked about it on the playground in the same vein as Two Girls One Cup, or the Glass Jar Video. Not as a movie but just as a sheer spectacle of atrocity. 

    We used to scare eachother with stories of real life imitation jigsaw killers, and fantasize about how we…

  • The Night Comes for Us

    The Night Comes for Us

    ★★★½

    Both the insanely brutal action and the half-baked plot will make you wince. It’s best not the care to much about the later when watching movies like these though.

  • Wild at Heart

    Wild at Heart

    ★★★½

    David Lynch is my favorite director, for me this is a symbol of my individuality, and my belief in.... personal freedom.

  • Detachment

    Detachment

    ★★★★

    As my opinion stands now, this  is a fantastic film that is so pretentiously put together that I almost feel as if it is parodying itself. Barthes’ overly verbose nihilism is reflected through the cinematography in an almost nauseating way, pulling me out of the narrative experience of this movie, but further into the mindset of detachment it is trying to convey. He leaves me with a sense of fond  yet uncanny relatability which I cannot fully express in words,…

  • Days of Being Wild

    Days of Being Wild

    ★★★★

    Having been hypnotized by Wong Kar-Wai’s other works I had been fruitlessly searching for this film for almost 6 months before watching it earlier this night. My experience trying to find this film feels almost cosmically ironic considering it’s themes and perhaps has helped me appreciate it more than I would have otherwise.

  • Summer of Sam

    Summer of Sam

    ★★★

    Very kinetic, and for the most part well paced. The scenes in the Bronx are excellent at capturing the raw energy of the time. My only real issue is the Son of Sam Scenes, which completely differed in tone. These scenes prove, I think unequivocally that its impossible for people with New England accents cant sound intimidating even if they try really hard.
