    Top Gun

    ★★★½

    The perfect encapsulation of Reagan’s America—the overt patriotism/American exceptionalism that doubles as a military recruitment commercial, the overemphasis on machismo to the point of self-parody, and the painfully 80s soundtrack. On the flipside, it’s also cheesy, full of beefcake actor, and the planes go PEW PEW really loud so it has that going for it too.

    There Will Be Blood

    ★★★★★

    Rewatched in 35mm for the 15th anniversary—not only is it a perfect film, with probably the best performance of the last half-century, it’s also the crown jewel in the Paul Dani Getting Beat Up film canon.
