    When Harry Met Sally...

    ★★★★½

    A perfect little movie that I would recommend to anyone. Unless it's New Year's Eve and you haven't kissed anyone in 10 months because of a pandemic and the movie serves as a reminder that you've been in love three times in your life and each time you really and truly blew it. In that case, I would not recommend watching it. This is a purely hypothetical situation, no further questions.

    This made $2,790,000,000 and given how boring it is I have to assume $2,500,000,000 of that was from people who wanted to fuck the cats.

    ★★★★

    Maybe it was contemporary for the time but the score for this is psychotic. Every musical sting feels like it's lifted straight out of The Apple Dumpling Gang. A lot of trombones, you know? That and the ending are about the only things that don't hold up by modern standards though.

    First time seeing Lee Marvin in anything and I fully get why he's a point of cultural reference - it might be absolute "man's man" bullshit, but he's got…

    There’s an absolute buck wild interview with Graham Yost about the making of this movie where he says:
     • The elevator scene was inspired by “Perseus [defeating] Medusa with the shield” (?)
     • Originally the bus was only going 20 miles per hour, because “that’s as fast as a human being can run” (??)
     • The first two choices for the Keanu role were Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks (???)
     • The first two choices for the Sandra Bullock role…

    I cannot imagine a world in which anyone gives a shit what I think about this movie.

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★½

    “And we got rid of that one mean judge and the government never did anything bad ever again.”

    Truly hated this dewey-eyed piece of Liberal Boomer propaganda. Poorly acted (Baron Cohen, Strong and Redmayne ESPECIALLY), atrociously shot, a tonal mess. I can’t believe Aaron Sorkin reuses dialog from 20+ year old movies and television shows and we nominate him for awards. 

    What a year to have to indulge this shit!
