    Lars and the Real Girl


    Now why did no one tell me this is Craig Gillespie’s best movie and about the cathartic experience of letting go of your coping mechanisms and how that in itself is a heartbreak but you can do it in your own time and there are people around you who love you and will support you in unexpected ways……….. new comfort movie just dropped, I’m crying, i love you Ryan Gosling, Paul Schneider has never been hotter

  • The Coffee Table

    The Coffee Table

    The Coffee Table…… I almost resent that I was entertained because it exists merely to provoke you, worst-case-scenario stuff not unlike A Serbian Film (not that bad but you get the point). Teetering on tonal catastrophe, “black comedy” doesn’t really feel like the right label for it but sure it’s extremely uncomfortable and I can’t say I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re curious.

    I guess I’ll be the bad guy OH BROTHER, no denying there’s plenty to chew on here about mythmaking and fanaticism, progress and coexistence, having Noa be our proxy to reflect on this saga is a welcome perspective. The attempt to balance it all is plodding and distant though, stretching its runtime out to painful lengths, and I think I’m just a lost cause on how self serious these movies are. Even the jokes can’t pierce through the dour veil…

  • Jacob's Ladder

    Jacob's Ladder


    Not sure the heavy-handed allegory here has aged very well, but the grimy world Lyne creates and the attention to unlawful military experiments is certainly timeless. Some of Tim Robbin’s best work, with an ending that is obvious but moving nonetheless. Shoutout chiropractors??

    Anyways Shutter Island clears🙄

    Do you know how many 40 year old women are going to be at Coachella next year because of this

  • Shutter Island

    Shutter Island


    “God gave us violence to wage in his honor.”

    Always loved this one, best viewed not as a thrill ride but a tragic journey through the mind of a violent man in a violent society. Trauma ricocheting like bullets in the wake of World War II, a new world that those victimized by it can’t recognize or be a part of anymore. In certain ways, one of Scorsese’s bleakest. “Which would be worse - to live as a monster, or to die as a good man?”

  • Spider-Man 3

    Spider-Man 3


    Like an entire season of your favorite comic book soap opera scrambled into 2 hours and 19 minutes, forgiveness as a superpower and selflessness as a nonnegotiable lesson when coming of age. Sam Raimi the man who can animate drying paint, that there isn’t a drop of irony in the whole thing is both a comforting escape and sad reminder that these just don’t look like they used to. Mary Jane Watson you are literally stronger than the marines.

  • Carrie


    “In the sudden, brief silence, she heard something within her turn over. Perhaps only her soul.”

    “And then the world exploded.”

    Carrie!!! A hand-painted feeling on 16mm by Owen, the coolest.

    Goddamn, what a movie to watch so soon after Challengers. Per usual, Scorsese kinda did it first. The way he shot/constructed the pool scenes is superhuman. Let’s all get over ourselves so we can play some fuckin 9 ball.

  • Boy Kills World

    Boy Kills World


    Oh I am simultaneously heartbroken and pissed off. One of the most obnoxious uses of voiceover ever but that is just one decision of many that turned this really cool premise into a grating slog and completely wasted the choreography/cast. I genuinely really wanted to like this but at every turn I was scratching my head or rolling my eyes. Needed 10x less Deadpool and 10x more Speed Racer.

  • Event Horizon

    Event Horizon


    Evil The Abyss. Though I do think the way this was cut down did a significant amount of damage, the Boschian depiction of hell is one of the gnarliest things I’ve ever seen and I hope the powers that be can get us the version Paul W. S. Anderson actually wanted one day
