    ★★★★★

    For a long time, I thought there was no way I could possibly write about my favorite film of all time because I felt like there was nothing I could say that would do it justice. Then I realized, you know, that it doesn’t really matter what I say about it because this film speaks for itself. It is a perfect movie in every way and everything about it is well, perfect. The direction, the camerawork, the score, the lighting,…

    Everybody Wants Some!!

    ★★

    I’ve been bingeing The Goldbergs on Hulu and that show is delightful and completely reminds me of my own childhood so when I saw this movie I wanted to give it a go because of the whole 80’s thing and it was ehhh not that great and maybe that’s because I was really just looking for more sitcomy Goldberg type stuff. There’s also a lot of bro-ness happening in this and that’s just not really my jam.

    Beautiful and bizarre like much of Lynch’s work, this is an excellent film noir that stays true to that basic formula while still throwing some major wtf gut punches pretty regularly.

    I know this is almost sacrilegious to say, but I’m not a huge Lynch stan. I like him and enjoy everything I’ve watched of his, but I’ve never really had the urge to dive deep into his filmography. Mulholland Drive is probably my favorite with this or Lost Highway

    ★★★★

    I love this awful Italian horror movie filmed in Louisiana. To me, it will always be Zombie 5: Killing Birds because that’s the title on the Shriek Show dvd box when I first saw this. It has a little to do with zombies although not really enough to make it a true zombie film. It has birds although their relationship to the story is a bit tenuous. Basically these kids are ornithology students searching for a rare bird and then…

    My new Columbus Metropolitan Library card is the damn gift that keeps on giving because I have been borrowing some delightful movies lately and this one gets all the stars. Every. Single. One.

    I went into this knowing very little about the plot. I only really knew that IanRich, and Evan all adored it and that was enough for me. This film is beautiful. Truly gorgeous in every way. It’s also completely bonkers and I love that. There were…
