    My criteria for seeing films in cinema during pandemic is: "Am I willing to die to see this?" And so I haven't been to the cinema much. And also, I've seen this twice in three days.



    can't believe Felix and James almost kiss

    Me to Emmy: "honestly, who is he even hurting? I'm on his side here. It's just entertainment."

    lol. Love a bashful angelic Ralph Fiennes getting away with stuff tho.

    I laughed, I cried, I cried some more, I cried again, then I cried over the end credits too.

    look I gave this 5 stars when I saw it in Imax in 2015 and I'm not gonna betray my younger self by denying that joy.

    not enough grieving of Vesper here tho. and obvi Monica Belucci is underutilized. I do love saying, "it was me James the author of all your pain" at semi-regular intervals in my life.

    can't believe I'm gonna finally see no time to die. I will cry.

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★★★½

    When credit at the end says "Story by Tom Hardy," but you already knew that to be true in your heart :')

    god I love his Charlie in Always Sunny but infected with an alien character study :')

    Like to imagine the days on set of Tom clutching a live chicken while playing both sides of a conversation :')

    Naomie Harris was a delight of a surprise. She's an icon. Also the hero of the story so her end was brutal and undeserved. Also should have received "And Naomie Harris" end credit status.

    Who needs to go outside in the sun when this film is right there. Straight dose of vitamin D through the sun-dappled screen.

    Ughhh that mischievous cool lady and her angelic tree. LET ME LOVE YOU BOTH.

    I'd risk it all if Julia Ormand was *my* dentist.



    also incredible that I told Malakie I was in a weird mood and her immediate response was should we watch that Julia Ormand-Tim Roth prison dentist movie???

    she never misses, folks!

    I have never seen the first 8 films, but, I was not going to pass up the opportunity of the entire gang getting together to go see a movie after all these years (since last March).

    We went in 4DX, and it was my first time, and I'll be honest, I was entirely and utterly unprepared. The entire seat literally rises into the air. When Vin got in a fistfight--MY SEAT PUNCHED ME IN THE BACK.

    Anyway, loved seeing it with mi familia and that's all that matters to me too.

    In the Heights

    my first film back in cinemas after 18months, watched on a day it reached 108° in Seattle which as you can imagine is literally apocalyptic.

    it was a very typically cinematic experience, up to and including the fact that the projector overheated and shut down ten minutes before the film ended and so we just left.
