    "Game, Blouses" –Granny


    I mean, we already knew lebron james couldn't act though, right?




    Overtly deciding to make their latest film one of the most shameless cash grabs in Hollywood history, Warner Bros. never once tries to hide its Easter eggs in Space Jam: A New Legacy. In this ostensible follow-up to the 1996 live-action/animation crossover, LeBron James teams up with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes to challenge an evil computer program to…

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★

    Twizard Rating: 64


    I consider myself a big Star Wars fan. George Lucas’ Original Trilogy was on constant repeat in our house growing up. And when he released the Prequel Trilogy years later, along with the first two installments of Disney’s post-Lucas “final” sequel trilogy, I became an apologist for the films at a time when other disenchanted fans became vocal about their resentment. Sometimes I could see where they were coming from, but I love this film universe too much…

    Uncharted

    ★★★★½

    You don't have to be a critic to see that Uncharted is far from perfect. However, that's also what makes it so much fun! Flying pirate ships, bad CGI (and bad wigs), silly '80s villains played by actors who pay no mind to character nuance. In some regard I had a better time watching this movie than anything in Raiders of the Lost Ark past the 1st act.

    Fleischer did this with Zombieland as well. He takes a standard-ish premise…

  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    ★★★★½

    As much as I notice the flaws in Cinderella as an adult (e.g., the overdevelopment of ancillary characters and the agonizingly slow 1st act), it felt like the most elevated form of entertainment when I watched it as a kid. I always wondered why such a dichotomy.

    Upon rewatching the 1950 classic, I still retain those criticisms, but I've also grown to appreciate the level at which it does, indeed, elevate itself. For the first time, Disney was able to…

    Curious how it feels the need to explain why wearing floral purple boots as an 11yo boy would get you made fun of (in the '80s), and then talks about it for way too long that I actually thought I was watching a Netflix movie for a moment.

    Still loved this movie though.

  • Freaks

    Freaks

    ★★★★½

    Twizard Rating: 94


    Freaks holds up really well compared to other movies of the early ‘30s. The story is short and sweet with a decent pacing considering its age.

    The cuts are clean as director Tod Browning evokes every ounce of emotion from his title characters. 

    There’s really nothing else like this movie. Equal parts bizarre and real, Freaks takes real life “freaks” and places them in a story that shows normal people making fun of them and treating them as animals.

    The depressing amounts of bullying create a very sad and dark tone, but the redemption in the end is well executed.
