    Choose Letterboxd. Choose films. Choose downloading the app. Choose paying money for a membership just so you don’t have to see some fucker adding 500 films to their watchlist. Choose following a few thousand people and then never reading a fucking word they say. Choose writing “Read the full review on my website!” knowing full well no cunt is ever going to follow that link. Choose asking Sally Jane Black to watch Rogue Nation and then seeing her do a…

    Ever had a lump stuck in your throat for 2 hours?

    Ever held in a scream you wanted to scream but couldn't because you were afraid you couldn't stop?

    Ever seen an actor not acting, not performing, just being?

    Ever seen a director do his utmost to tear out your soul, stomp on it only to rebuild it in the most bitter sweet way imaginable?

    Ever lost someone, wanting them back so badly, living becomes a chore?

    Ever grieved?

    Ever…

    imagine going over to ricky's house for a dime bag and he's just sitting there watching a video he recorded of a dead cat in a dumpster or something and he senses your presence and says "i watch this every day at exactly 3:41pm. it reminds me that i'm not alone in the world" and then he starts crying and you're just like "ricky... the weed"

    We all grieve, yet we grieve in many different ways. A death can make a family stronger, or destroy it. Some people never get over a loss. Others, find a positive out of a negative, and use their experience to educate and help others. I'm envious of those who've never experienced a significant loss. That's probably why it's not the end of the world for me when a celebrity dies. It's okay if you get upset when a famous person…

    CW: white supremacy/racism/whiteness, gender

    "you cannot be proud of being white & not be a racist. it's a tautology. you can be proud of your irish heritage. you can be proud of your german heritage. you can be proud of your lutheran heritage or your appalachian roots or your large italian family's sunday gravy tradition. you cannot be proud of your *white* heritage b/c there is no such thing. whiteness only exists as a power relationship. a system of domination is…

    I would very much like to know the thought process behind putting a very prominent Chronicles of Riddick poster on the wall of Christian Grey's old bedroom.

    a movie about a melodramatic, jealous, self-hating, pretentious young girl who wants to die... can't believe my life has been plagiarized like this!

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    Todd Gaines

    ★★★★½

    The characters in the John Wick Cinematic Universe live in their own little world. They have their own code, currency, language and plenty of 5 star hotels to stay in. Everyone is connected. Every single person is a player in a giant game of chess. We don't see outsiders. Cops don't investigate. Damsels aren't in distress. Innocents don't get caught in the crossfire. It's like John Wick and the Gang are shadows living in an open world. Now, it's Chapter…
