    I love seeing Jackie Chan in a role like this.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - there has never been and never will be another Jackie Chan.

    Funny, smart, thoughtful, and charming as all hell.

    Found myself smiling often during this. It’s such a kindhearted and lovable film.

    Love seeing indie films like this. You can feel the blood sweat and tears all over it. Something where the filmmakers just rolled up their sleeves and made their movie happen.

    Got a screener of this, so can’t say anything. 

    But chatting with Aaron Schneider for the podcast soon!

    A must watch.

    If you don’t have Netflix, they’ve made it available for free on YouTube right now.

    Got a screener of this one.

    It’s deeply and unapologetically thematic.

    Natalie Erika James creates and maintains an effective sense of dread from frame one until it’s climax. All of her choices were bullseyes. Just crazy tight and gutsy filmmaking.

    So much to respect here.

    Tigers Are Not Afraid

    Really effective mashing of genre.

    Issa López constructed a tight, dark, riveting, and heartbreaking film. 

    I’m an immediate fan of López. Can’t wait to see what she does next!

    (Pure 90s goodness. Night 49)

    A fun, tongue in cheek, comedic horror filled with early Peter Jackson style.

    Still a blast - even if dated in a lot of ways.

    (Pure 90s goodness. Night 48.)

    I love this film so much. Just oozes of nostalgia for me.

    But even with the nostalgia removed, this is still an incredibly fun ride with with a lot of heart.

    An absolutely gorgeous and brilliant film. Satoshi Kon was an unbelievable artist. I’m only two films into his filmography and he’s already becoming a favorite. 

    Floored by his imagination and inspired by how he anchors his high concept in what matters.

    I’m going out on a limb here... but I think... it’s possible... that Nolan saw this film.

  • Men in Black

    Men in Black

    (Pure 90s goodness. Night 47.)

    A perfectly cast, incredibly well paced, funny, and fun film.

    Films like this are like medicine when you’re stressed.
