    You know, I’ve always kinda thumped on the score, but it really isn’t that bad. Still one of my favorite 1980s fantasy films. Rutger Hauer is really great. Matthew Broderick is miscast but he tries hard. And Michelle Pfeiffer is wonderful. One of my favorite Richard Donner films.

    The Batman


    Revisited THE BATMAN this morning. I know it’s long. I also don’t think we can get to the emotional catharsis of the final 20 minutes without it. This may well be my favorite Batman movie. When we see Batman in the light… gives me goosebumps.

    Everything Everywhere All at Once


    EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE: This movie is why I go to movies. You have never seen anything like it. It’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. It is pure cinema magic. You’re going to call this hyperbolic, but I don’t care. This thing owns my soul.

    I like that the Marvel multiverse stuff is prevalent right now because it’s a good entry point for #EverythingEverywhereAllatOnce but it has so much more to say…

    The Northman


    Holy shit, THE NORTHMAN. D&D as FUCK. Frank Frazetta meets HAMLET and Robert E. Howard and I loved every bloody second.

    I wouldn’t have anticipated that CONAN THE BARBARIAN, awesome as it is, would be an artistic focal point for this generation of filmmakers but I’m very happy it was for Robert Eggers. And why not? Great is great. John Milius would adore THE NORTHMAN.
