• Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

    Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

    ★★★

    a pox upon the house of whoever decided that side characters in a shonen have to be either a horny sniveling cowered who scream all his lines or an ignorant aggressive hothead who screams all his lines. another pox upon the writers who decided to include both of these archetypes. fucking unbearable.

    props to the fun demons, interesting tertiary swordsmen and dynamic battles

  • Little Shop of Horrors

    Little Shop of Horrors

    saw my local community college production and this show is a delight in all forms

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    ★★★★

    freddy krueger really said fuck them kids

  • Death Note

    Death Note

    ★★★★½

    imagine having the power to act as a god of death and decide that the primary subject of your righteous wrath should be people ALREADY in prison instead of any of the architects of wide scale suffering

  • The Sea Beast

    The Sea Beast

    ★★★½

    this isn’t ‘how to train your kraken’ because it’s more about the criticism of a government that manipulates its people into dying for their own profit than it is about ‘oh, this creature is a scary nuisance that can be tamed and used for our profit’ it’s purely war is bad the government is bad nature is a force unto its own that you cannot control

    very good movie but i'd like to know where the profit in killing sea monsters comes from

  • Nope

    Nope

    ★★★★

    if you thought “us” created a million bad faith what’s the metaphor articles written by people refusing to just let art be art, you are not ready for people demanding to know what this film is (hint: it’s a cinematic experience that should be appreciated on its own terms)

  • C'mon C'mon

    C'mon C'mon

    ★★★★

    this film is making me a liar getting me to think that i want children ❤️

  • The Lost Boys

    The Lost Boys

    ★★★★

    this movie has everything: costal 80s punk goth grunge vampires, insane dialogue choices, ‘sorry you got tricked into becoming a vampire’ consolation sex scene, accidental homo eroticism,  a weird horny grandpa obsessed with taxidermy, 80s style special effects, dangly earring. i could continue but if you’re not sold by now idk what to tell you

  • Dark Places

    Dark Places

    why did anyone ever think that dark places was the book that needed the most faithful screen adaptation? every choice on display is truly baffling and kept making things worse. a single star for being a vehicle for charlize theron to make her bag

  • Pink Floyd: The Wall

    Pink Floyd: The Wall

    ★★★★★

    a culture defining touch stone with critiques of society and self that ring true even today done in a way that’s easy for a wide audience to understand without roger waters having to sacrifice artistic integrity. just a shame that i was first introduced to the wall by a high school english teacher who i’m convinced never saw it all the way through so it took me seven years to watch the wall in full

  • Scream

    Scream

    ★★★★

    even knowing the twist that performance is just too good! did not need four (4) sequels

  • Men

    Men

    ★★★

    viscerally upsetting everybody say thank you Alex Garland
