    Southland Tales

    Lovitz DELIVERS, good lord!

  • Sorcerer

    Sorcerer

    A rather calming affair. If you're an idiot, that is.

  • Something Wild

    Something Wild

    Man I wish the world kept moving in this direction instead of in the direction of a hollowed out Chipotle. What are you gonna do, though. That's life.

  • Let's Scare Jessica to Death

    Let's Scare Jessica to Death

    Feels like something you catch late at night on TV at your grandparents' house, about thirty minutes in and you either get scared and turn it right off or watch to the end if you're cool. Really difficult vibe to capture but it never once falters. Really special lead performance. "Is she actually cRaZy!?" is one of the hardest notes in the world for an actor to land and so for Zohra Lampert to not only nail it but to…

    Space Jam: A New Legacy

    Then Almitra spoke, saying, We would ask now of Death.
        And he said:
        You would know the secret of death.
        But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
        The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
        If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.

  • David Foster: Off the Record

    David Foster: Off the Record

    Watched it with my family and really enjoyed myself. Wouldn't call this well made by any stretch (The timeline jumps all over with no explanation, Bill Clinton is interviewed and it's never explained what the connection is, at one point he hits Ben Vereen with a car which ends up saving Vereen's life(?) and it gets about three minutes of screen time never to be mentioned again) but I loved it as a document of a sleazy schmaltz merchant with…

  • The Game

    The Game

    In real life, Michael Douglas's dad is Kirk Douglas. But in The Game (1997) his dad is "the voice of Mario" himself, Charles Martinet. Another silver screen miracle!

  • Old

    Old

    If you have even an ounce of the abhorrent  "okay so you mean to tell me" impulse when you watch movies this is like getting an MRI with a penny in your pocket. But if you're cool, it's a fun little movie about a freaky beach.

  • Mulan

    Mulan

    Watched it on a plane so I wouldn't give Disney any money. The only problem? I flew Donald Duck Air. You just can't win.

  • Swordfish

    Swordfish

    It looks like somebody was holding up orange tinted oakleys in front of the camera for every shot. It's easy to sit here in 2021 and laugh but you have to understand that people in 2001 thought that the "you wouldn't DOWNLOAD a CAR" warning on DVDs was basically the coolest thing possible and we were experiencing the end of history.

    Some truly phenomenal scenes in this thing. Loved the scene where Hugh Jackman has to hack with a gun…

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    I wish they would let these suck more. There’s a baseline competency to these movies that saps a lot of fun out of them. Red Dawn is the superior piece of capitalist propaganda because it feels cranky and paranoid rather than assembled by Disney’s military wing. I dunno. The MCU party lines have been drawn for years. Nobody’s on the fence. Who cares what I think about this, you already decided you either agree or disagree with me before you read this.

  • Body Double

    Body Double

    That joke about a medieval peasant being vaporized by listening to a single shoegaze riff but instead it’s a YA fiction scold being atomized by any single scene of this movie.
