    Adam Sandler's second best performance just behind Punch-Drunk Love.

    As good as this movie was I was also frustrated at times because of Adam Sandler. Once again the man proved he can actually act. He's freaken GREAT in this movie! Yet he's made so much utter garbage and continues to make utter garbage. WHY!?

    The first 15-20 minutes of this movie with Adam Sandler and his daughter is probably my favorite 15 minutes of film from this whole year.

    i feel like bo would hate me for saying this but i do think he’s one of the smartest and most well spoken people working today and it always amazes me how he puts that into his work (i was listening to his interview w/ pete holmes on pete’s podcast and he elaborates more on late night hosts/the end of culture) & every time i watch him perform im just in awe of what im seeing so yikes @myself for getting so sappy but bo is one of the best writers and performers working today and i hope he never stops

    Contains a few of the most genuinely disturbing kills in the entire series (highlights being the sleeping bag one in the opening and the garage one near the end of the second act) and some good moments of pure tension as well as being the most "late 2000s" thing I've ever seen (and I can't tell if that was intentional or not, but it had me laughing my ass off regardless), this manages to take elements that the franchise has…

    my favorite scene in this movie is when mark and sean are in the nightclub together talking abt victoria's secret and the lacrosse thing and it's not even because of the content it's because while they were rehearsing/filming there was no loud music playing so fincher made them scream the entire conversation at each other in a silent room and then added the music in later that is so goddamn funny to me

    How is it possible that Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler haven’t made a movie together since Happy Gilmore? They are so damn good in this. We should have had two decades of collaborations.

    Interesting how the motive of Aileen Wuornos, the first ever American female “serial killer,” was that she was so traumatized by the rampant sexual violence she endured at the hands of men. The rape scene was hard to watch, especially in the wake of #MeToo, but it was handled well — I trust director Patty Jenkins made sure the actors weren’t too uncomfortable. 

    Speaking from experience, sexual situations can be terrifying after enduring sexual assault. You interpret every sudden movement…

    an incredibly important film made about racism in the 1960s which is still relevant today when discussing white supremacy and the confederate flag? it MUST have won best picture! oh it lost? to what? that movie about michael keaton being an asshole?

    well it was masterfully directed by ava duvernay, a woman of color in an industry dominated by white men, she must have won something— what? she wasn’t even nominated? THE GUY WHO DID FOXCATCHER WAS?

    FUCK man well at least david oyelowo won—nope nevermind
    at least he was nominated for— SON OF A

    I'm a little late getting into the Halloween spirit, I don't know whats going on in the new world of horror but id love to find out. I'm mainly going through my backlog.


    I just watched this again and I think there three 'modern' serial killer classics. Se7en, Silence of the Lambs, and then this.

    It's a wonderful procedural, it's chillingly horrific at times and its endlessly fascinating because this is one of our highest profile murderers that was never…

    I've built The Exorcist III up for years, essentially since the '90s when I first started extensively reading about true crime and in time it was mostly thought of as a tool of evil, a movie I was scared of even though I had never seen it, knowing that a part of Jeffrey Dahmer's killing ritual consisted of showing his victims this very movie made it something I was too disgusted to watch for many years, and it was hard…

    The thing that surprised me the most on this rewatch is how much Raimi and his brother are able to squeeze into such a short runtime. Minus credits, this is about 70 minutes long and manages to feature some of the most memorable moments in the trilogy.

    It may loose a bit of the pure horror aesthetics of the previous installments, but it utilizes this as a means of embracing the pure demonic adventure of being set in the middle…

    I mean this is pretty much just the one joke, people in old timey times saying dirty words and fucking and talking about fucking and jerking off and stuff. Which is I think pretty hilarious.
