Choose following a few thousand people and then never reading a fucking word they say.

    ah, yes. meryl streep's role as "meryl streep in another mediocre dramady" was much more deserving of an oscar nomination than amy "i carried this movie on my own two shoulders" adams. because florence foster jenkins will be remembered for much longer than arrival. at least she got nominated for nocturnal animals OH WAIT

    You never see the Germans.

    Nearly every 70mm frame of Christopher Nolan’s monumental new film is lodged in the heart of the heart of World War II — ticking down the seconds as the Nazis tighten the noose around 400,000 Allied troops who are stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk — but you never see the Germans. Their submarines lurk invisibly beneath the waters offshore, their planes swoop in the distance overhead, and their foot soldiers remain off-camera as they…

    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"

    Kevin: "And then I said, we already put in 3 end-credits scenes, how about 2 more?!?"

    *eruptive laughter*

    Marvel Exec #2: "You're such a card, Kevin."

    Kevin: "These movies don't make themselves!"

    Marvel Exec #3: "Well I mean they kinda do. That's why we installed that conveyer belt in northern Idaho and everything."

    Kevin: "You got me there!"

    I lost it when they threw her on the ground.

    When I say I lost it, I'm not talking about the losing it where tears just come bursting out. Not the losing it where you tuck your head into your knees because you just can't handle standing the sight of anything anymore. I'm talking about the losing it where you feel like everything you've just experienced was nothing more than a bad dream. That nothing this disgusting could ever be…

    straight up the most fun i've had in a movie theater since MAGIC MIKE XXL. like an 113-minute version of those year-end video things i make, but, ya know… actually art, and not just legwork. can't *quite* shake the feeling that this was $20 million short of being a masterpiece (just as i'm having a little trouble making sense of how this movie doesn't end with a car chase), but this is still exactly the kind of shot in the arm that mid-budget studio filmmaking needs.

    this movie is a gift to the world. a true mitzvah. "a pure good," to quote Ben Kingsley in Schindler's List (as I do on the regular).

    James Franco's performance as Tommy Wiseau is so good that Daniel Day-Lewis had to retire out of shame. i look forwards to pushing him for major acting awards all season long.

    i have *no* idea how this will play for those who are unfamiliar with THE ROOM, but for me… this was heaven.

    Hands down the best time I've had at the movies all year. It is a fucking blast!

    Basically The Goonies with a demonic killer clown.

    The kid from Stranger Things steals the entire movie. His one liners were absolute gold. My sides were acing. He says this one line after the rock fight and I was crying real tears.

    All of the kids were exceptional. Every single kid knocks it out of the park. Everyone has their own distinct personalities,…

    film festivals are fun because sometimes you get a heads up that a lot of people are about to have a new favorite movie. this is one of those times.

    beyond being hilarious, unflinchingly honest, and performed to perfection, Gerwig's debut is just so, *so* smart about growing up, leaving home, reconciling teenage flippancy with parental gratitude, how class infects self-identity, and the enduring power of a certain Dave Matthews Band song. also, Tracy Letts drops one of the…

    The truth is that there shouldn't be disappointment. I should, by no means, feel disappointed. But, leaving the theater I was confronted with this completely overwhelming feeling of utter tiredness and sadness. After seeing the movie I was messaging one of my friends who asked why it's so poor and why I disliked it so much and my exact words were, "t's more MCU garbage but this time it's Spider-Man and it feels fucking personal". That big, fat 94% on…
