    This is such a dumbass movie based on a dumbass cartoon, produced by and guest-starring a notorious rapist no less, but the reason that this film is god-tier anyway is that the ensemble cast are all achingly pouring their blood, sweat, and tears into their performances and it loops back around to being an unironically joyful experience. I rewatched almost every scene a minimum of two times because the entire main cast is constantly on their A-game to deliver a…

    An uplifting movie that is only comprehensible to you if you’ve ever felt the deepest pits of depression and experienced an existential crisis so extreme that your identity crumbles entirely and you start to see yourself as just a farting sack of meat, or even worse, a corpse that just hasn’t died yet. Not as though I have any experience with that Hahahahahahahaha...

    But even farts can be beautiful, every erection has its day, and you’re entirely allowed to be…

    *me watching shirtless Roddy Piper make out with a scantily clad frog woman*
    "Hm. This better not awaken anything in me..."

    On one hand, this is way better than it has any right to be. It could have way less of a budget and much worse performances and still fundamentally work in my eyes, but the fact that the effects and frog costumes are as good as they are makes those scenes all the better. It's…

    Pleasantly surprised that even a classic heist film such as this, one that has served as one of the main archetypal blueprints for so many heist films since, still managed to keep me on my toes and guessing as to how the plan will unfold.

    I think the third act get away from itself, there's just a lot of running around and dying and double crossing and it's just kind of boring. It's almost like the film didn't know what…

    I would be very interested to know why Hitchcock sprang to make this, and if his heart was truly in it, because this is lacking the energy or cinematic flair that even his lesser thrillers manage to have. Thematically, it dabbles in familiar Hitchcockian ideas, but not to the same sweaty, Freudian degree as his psychological thrillers. Perhaps Hitchcock was attempting to pioneer the psychological historical drama. But to what end, I have no…

    This is literally just Ginny Weasley/Snape fan fiction.

    This features a very dry and understated quirkiness, which I suppose I’ll take over what I thought I was in for. When I first heard this was quirk week, I was expecting a late 2000s indie like Juno or, like, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, I don’t fucking know. Not to mention, the only other Australian comedy I’ve ever seen was Muriel’s Wedding, which I really…
