    Dragon's Heaven

    There's hints of a grander story here. A long running geo political conflict, and the beginning of A.I. developing conciousness, beings who are just realizing their capacity to exercise free will while still being enslaved as tools of war for men.

    While all of this is interesting and begs to be explored further, it doesn't really need to be, because that's not what this little OVA's intentions are. You came here to see a pretty blond fuck shit up in…

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    I love this so much, Tails is so cute, I love Knuckles and how literal and "simple thoughts only" he is. I love that they're all friends that makes me very happy. And I'm very excited to see this franchise's Hiei arrive in the next one.

    I can't wait for the end credits scene in Sonic 3 where they tease Big the Cat's inclusion in the 4th movie.

    Some real cinema for the soul. My heart is very full. I love being queer. Solidarity forever ❤

  • Are you lost in the world like me?

    Are you lost in the world like me?

    I feel like there's the possibility for a nuanced discussion to be had about alienation in the modern world and technology's role in that but it's certainly not this. And tech is certainly not the inherent source of that alienation. To pretend this shit wasn't in our culture prior to the invention of the internet is extremely out of touch and shows a clear lack of perspective from the creators. But I'm sure anyone who's seen this could tell you…

  • Sweet Movie

    Sweet Movie

    I get John Waters/Jodorowsky vibes from this one.

    Unlike a lot of films I think Sweet Movie likely gets compared to (Salo, Nekromantik etc.) Where there is gratuitous indulgence in depicting the most depraved shit humans are capable of, Sweet Movie does something almost worse by also flirting with tenderness, prettiness and obviously sweetness. The juxtaposition almost makes what's depicted on screen that much more revolting. I've seen bodily mutilation in films before and not grimaced (I might be showing…

    Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou: Quiet Country Cafe

    While I still think the manga is my prefered way to experience this story, it is always a treat to be immersed in this world with these characters again. Alpha is probably my favourite anime/manga character of all time, so any excuse to spend more time with her I will gladly take.

    This might be sacrilegious, but I think I might enjoy this more than the 90's OVA. Maybe it's my attachment to the portion of the story this OVA…

    I am a puddle. This is really good. Cream of the crop cozy cinema.

  • The Room

    The Room

    Why I like The Room is entirely because of external reasons. It's the people I've associated with this movie, and the period of my life that coincided with my first dozen viewings of this thing, which I recognize now as very formative. Its a period of my life where teenage me really came into his own. And I'm really happy and proud my past self got to be the person he was. That association is what I love.

    This is…

    Nowhere

    I mean it with complete sincerity when I say this is some of the most insane shit I have ever seen. And for that to happen at this point in my life is a fucking feat.

    I'm excited to rewatch this in the very near future.

  • Lisa, Lisa

    Lisa, Lisa

    I really don't understand why this has such a low rating.

    Gorgeous cinematography. Both minimalist and thoughtfully composed. In that regard, Lisa, Lisa is very reminicent of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre that came out the same year. But a bit unlike Chainsaw, the cinematography really shines in any of the scenes involving blood. The red just pops so vibrantly off the screen in contrast to the dark browns and bright whites that make up most of the farmhouse interior.

    I…

  • Searching

    Searching

    I've seen a few "Desktop Films" these past few years and I've consistently found them to be awkward. We're at a point in time where there are stories we want to tell about the ever evolving digital space that has become so crucial in the formation of our modern lives, to do so while also trying to authentically capture what the online landscape is like, is something I don't think mainstream narrative cinema conventions are currently equipped to handle.
