  • The Dead Don't Die

    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★½

    It’s a deadpan comedy take on zombie movies, probably Night of the Living Dead in particular, but I can’t be sure. I haven’t seen that one in a long time.

    Anyway it falls completely flat. It certainly has its moments and delivers some laughs. The cast is absolute killer and even that can’t save it.

    I have this weird feeling that everything is supposed to be superficial and mediocre because Jarmusch sees zombie movies that way. In the end it just felt like kinda lazy writing to be frank.

    Tilda Swinton is great though. Like always.

  • The Last Temptation of Christ

    The Last Temptation of Christ

    ★★★★

    I don’t remember ever consciously being religious despite growing up in a deeply catholic household and wider family. But growing up in this environment gave me a special connection with movies about the Bible and its figures.

    We actually have a dvd collection with a movie about like every major dude. From Moses to Jesus.

    I gotta say though I haven’t seen any of these films in a long time and this one is my first after really getting into…

    Kiki's Delivery Service

    ★★★★½

    There's this 2 second shot of an old maid secretly trying and failing to fly with Kiki's broom in the hallway and it really stuck out to me. The wonder, love, and kindness every character exudes in this picture are completely and utterly heartwarming.

  • Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    ★★★

    Man, aren’t these Pokémans gosh darn cute? Too bad them being cute is the best thing this movie has to offer.
    Letterboxd says 8 people wrote this movie. Sounds about right.
