    Singin' in the Rain


    Rewatching for the first time in years, thanks to PBS, and while I’m pretty blown away by the choreography and visuals, I’m pretty sure 95% of these songs, outside of the title and Good Mornin(which, again, is way better as a dance routine),  are bad.
    Lickily, it’s also a rather adroit comedy. 
    I apologize for the heresy.

    Don't care how good Gillie is (she's fine, but it's not really as magnetic as I was led to believe), this movie is 45 minutes at best and that best is mediocre as hell.

    Why? Why did I watch this? For whatever reason I find almost all of Dreyer's films infuriating, chock full of insufferable characters with few or no redeeming characteristics- this is one of those movies. And the ending? Fuck. That. Noise. Go watch The Passion of Joan of Arc instead, THAT is a great movie.

    Blade Runner 2049


    Ummmmm, this is spectacular?

    The production design is gorgeous at every gritty, rain-soaked turn.
    The lighting is a character unto itself. Literally.
    The sound design is amazing.
    Harrison Ford has never been better.
    Jared Leto is genuinely unnerving.
    Robin Wright is magnificent.
    Ryan Gosling takes on the perpetually-beaten gumshoe archetype like it was made for him.
    The visuals on the digital overlay sex scene alone deserve an Oscar.
