    The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.


    Do drugs and watch this movie.

    Do more drugs while watching this movie.

    Do even more drugs when you finish this movie.

    Repeat and rinse.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri


    Not a bad little flick. I'm not sure it's worth all the awards it's getting but it's definitely watchable. I think to call this a lesser McDonagh is a bit of a disservice. Honestly I think this is a little more in line with his stage plays than the films he's written/directed thus far. I'd like to see it again to really get a grasp on what is going on. Seems like a pretty good rumination on Americans and Trumpists.

    Incredible film about language, lose, and love. Beautifully packaged in a great science fiction drama. I love this renaissance of smart scifi that seems to be gaining traction. I can't wait to see what Villeneuve does with Blade Runner.

    Great little samurai anime. Love the occult stuff in it. Not bad.
