    The 2017 Queer Films Challenge

    A film directed by the Wachowski sisters

    "The truth is, I couldn't have been more proud of you. Not because you won, but because you stood up, you weren't afraid, and you did what you thought was right."

    I usually try to avoid rewatches on challenges, but that was literally impossible with this category as I've seen every single film the Wachowski Sisters have ever made. They are, quite possibly, my favorite filmmakers. Not only…

    I'm going to watch every superhero movie ever, 9/264

    There's an impossibly moody-looking city. Penguin is reimagined as a gothic villain. Christopher Walken doesn't feel out of place at all as industry captain Max Schreck, who walks around in a fucking cape. There are huge, exaggerated emotions and motivations throughout like you might also find in a gothic novel or movie. Penguin's motivation isn't "he's a mobster, idk," Catwoman's motivation isn't "she's a jewel thief, idk." Both are motivated by…

    A History of Horror – 2018 Weekly Challenge

    Week 24 Aliens

    Okay, well, between this and Super, I guess it's just safe to say I'm just not a fan of James Gunn's non-Guardians of the Galaxy work, and the bizarrely mean-spirited writing of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 no longer seems like such an anomaly to me.

    I've now observed a pretty pronounced misogynist streak in 3 of the 4 Gunn movies I've seen, so that's pretty much priced…

    Queer Film Challenge 2018

    Week 24. A gay interest film shown on Logo's Cocktails and Classics

    Well, okay. That sure was a movie.

    I get why this has the following it has, it just didn't click for me. But it definitely isn't boring, so there's that. Early on I thought it might be another Rocky Horror for me, but it just never quite hit that level. Which isn't really fair, because of course not everything that's campy can be Rocky Horror.

    It coulda been kinkier and gayer, though. Just saying.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

    Pros
    • Lando

    • The cast for, the most part.

    • L3-37 seriously challenged K-2SO for my favorite droid of all time, what with her accidental revolutionary leadership and insistence that human/droid sex is a thing.

    • Lando


    Cons
    • The whole movie should've just been about Lando.

    • Han Solo is the kind of character who works best without a backstory. He's worldly, jaded, but ultimately a loyal friend when it comes right down to it. The way he…

  • The Shape of Water

    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★★

    I get the feeling that part of why people are impressed with The Shape of Water is that del Toro took the "ridiculous" idea of a consensual interspecies relationship and treated it seriously, but I have massive crushes on like... Godzilla and Bowser, so I really don't see the big deal with the concept, I'm just glad someone actually did it. (Also I think the cat's kind of out of the bag with me and interspecies relationships considering my Lord…
