    Destroy All Monsters

    ★★★

    Best one in a good, long while. Tons of monsters, a somewhat more interesting human plot where they have a mystery to solve and real antagonists to fight, as well as actual buildings being wrecked. Minus points for larvae-mothra and no historical buildings destroyed.

    David Lynch: The Art Life

    ★★★½

    A pleasant way to spend ninety minutes, but I wish it dug a little deeper into Lynch's worldview and thoughts about said art life, not just his description of it.

    About 30 minutes into this, I broke. Completely. And pretty much stayed in that state for the rest of the film.

    A quiet, intense, honest, bitter and utterly heartbreaking look at love. Possibly the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. There are so many great things about it, so much that I loved. So many clever uses, fantastic performances, fantastic scenes.... I can't praise this movie enough. It's fantastic that even in our times, there are people capable of telling stories about love that actually feel fresh.

    I loved it.

    Jesus Christ. Holy shit. What the fuck.

    Four minutes into this, I had already decided that I would give this film five stars. It's that good. The rest of it did not disappoint, but fucking hell. Goddamn it.

    Piano music will never be the same.
