    The Talented Mr. Ripley


    I love that Freddie is so pleased with himself for the line “how’s the peeping, Tommy” he just says it a second time

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel


    I forgot they did the gag with the door from A Shot in the Dark. It’s never not funny.

  • Streets of Fire

    Streets of Fire


    I like the whole movie but during the opening and closing minutes (basically when Jim Steinman songs are being performed) I’m convinced it’s the best movie ever made

  • Koyaanisqatsi



    Phil Glass delivering wall-to-wall bangers here

  • Paths of Glory

    Paths of Glory


    Hmm war seems pretty stupid if you ask me

  • The Last Picture Show

    The Last Picture Show


    Jesus this town is like a Hellmouth of sadness

  • Star 80

    Star 80


    I feel like I need to go take a shower

  • L.A. Confidential

    L.A. Confidential


    Read the book then rewatched the movie and this has gotta be the ultimate example of an adaptation discarding massive amounts of the source material (ya gotta, it’s a dense book) but keeping the heart and spirit of it and managing to make something just as good

  • Cabaret



    Okay “old chum,” you’re telling me life is a cabaret, but this cabaret doesn’t look like much fun at all!

  • The Lady Eve

    The Lady Eve


    Preston Sturges to himself upon meeting Henry Fonda: “I will make this handsome man fall down over and over and over again”

  • Saturday Night Fever

    Saturday Night Fever


    I love that this was Gene Siskel's favorite movie and he was obsessed with it because it was about the fun exciting youth he wished he'd when it's really a pretty bleak movie about realizing all your friends are pieces of shit and sometimes they die and you need to get out of your hometown
