    Transcendent!

    Rent is a very important work in my life. I instantly loved it when it was released in 1996 (I was 21 or so). I wore that double CD set out in my dorm room. Even though I could not relate individually to any of the characters, I felt Larson captured the angst felt throughout Generation X, getting lost trying to find yourself while being forced, kicking and screaming, into adulthood, all while shining a light on the AIDS…

    100 Horror Movies in 92 Days

    Watched via Popcorn Frights Film Festival's virtual platform. I couldn't really commit to an entire film festival right now, but I really wanted to check out this film after reviewing their lineup (and this teaser trailer).

    Dawn Breaks Behind the Eyes begins as a ghost story. A couple (well, really it seems, the woman within the couple) inherit a castle and have arrived to inspect it. They begin to feel a presence within the…

    The Lost Leonardo

    ★★★½

    Leonardo DiCaprio jump scare notwithstanding, The Lost Leonardo is a solid talking head type of documentary discussing the origin of the discovery of a presumed lost Da Vinci painting entitled Salvador Mundi and the amount of money and politics enveloping the art world currently.

    Of course this whole ordeal originates in New Orleans. 

    I’m no art historian, but I agree with the guy who said Da Vinci would not have chosen a wooden plank with a knothole square in the middle for one of his paintings.

    ★★★★

    Exhibit who knows on on why I am a Vinegar Syndrome subscriber. I probably would have passed on this one otherwise. And what a mistake that would have been. 

    Yet another bonkers plot forthcoming (to the best of my ability):

    There’s an unexplained child sacrifice which cuts to a nun who is getting kicked out of the order after getting knocked up by a priest (why is there never any culpability for men in these scenarios?). Flash forward 13 years…

    Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2

    ★★★

    GARBAGE DAY! That's it. That's my review.

    Not really. That would be NAUGHTY.

    Why was the scene where little Billy peeps through the keyhole at two lovers reshot with different actors? The guy definitely had blonde hair in part 1. Did they have to get the actors' permission and they were unwilling/unable to do so? A totally random thing to notice, I know, but I just watched part 1 and this discrepancy leaped out at me (along with a voiceover…

    Silent Night, Deadly Night

    ★★★★½

    I watched this film so much as a kid. But I don't remember the last time I watched it. It must have been before 2014 because I hadn't logged it here on Letterboxd (just marked as watched). So it was overdue a revisit. I almost talked myself out of it, thinking I could just watch part 2 and that would be good enough (since it is composed of, what, at least 30 minutes of scenes from the original).

    Everybody already…
