    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

    kind of slept on this one the first time i saw it! really loved it this time around—and maybe one of my favorite Williams’ scores? Barrymore steals every scene though lol

  • Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

    Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

    he’s just a little guy… with little shoes… and when you think about it aren’t we all just little guys with little shoes trying to find which way is up and which way is down and what a community looks like after sudden loss? there’s beauty in the wind and there’s grief in the orange tree and there’s something worth living for and learning and discovering in everything in between

  • Finding Nemo

    Finding Nemo

    this movie nails how terrifying the dentist is

  • Nope

    Nope

    i’m glad i waited to rewatch before trying to sort and articulate my thoughts—Nope definitely is worth repeated viewing, if not to totally clarify some murkier parts, then definitely to appreciate some well-planted pieces in the impeccable first act

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    frankly if a movie can look this good than it’s kind of mega embarrassing for anyone’s movie to actually look ugly… yes i’m talking about all you ugly CGI blockbusters with no SOUL!

    i’ve only seen one other Kubrick film but i am interested in the seemingly lack of kindness in both this and The Shining… intentional or not?

  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder
