    Saw the Rifftrax Live Encore Show of this. It's amazing how completely nonsensical and impossible to follow this movie is, and yet somehow the ridiculous hula-hoop raves and go-kart fights and bad acting and managed explosions tie it all together.

    I didn't really like the backer-picked David Ryder names, though.

    (Oh, and my review of that Magic Shop short that's not on Letterboxd ... I have two goals as a future mother of a son. The first is to keep him off the 4chan. The second is to make sure he never has that kid's terrible haircut.)

I like how we're going kind of obscure this time around.…

    Film School Dropouts Challenge 2017: -- Week Five: Soviet Montage

    A couple of people last week said they were dreading the Swashbuckler challenge as just not their thing, but this was actually the category that made me wince. As I've mentioned in several previous reviews, I did take a film class in undergrad and our Soviet Montage feature was The Battleship Potemkin. The film was a masterclass of editing, and a particular joy after we watched the first half of…
