    “promise me momma, when i die have the coffin arrive half an hour late and on the side written in gold letters are the words: sorry for the delay”

    incoherent, chaotic and cathartic brilliance. lizzie moss not even being nominated at the oscars for this will continue to confuse me

    “my god... ellie, i think i’ve done something terrible”

    the perfect modern american portrait: tragedy warping pop culture and vice versa, killing the person and birthing the persona... this is one of the most overlooked mainstream films of the last decade and i’m prepared to die on that hill

    Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over

    ★★★

    rewatched (and in 3D!!!) for the first time in over a decade, and it’s so clear why this was one of my favorite movies as a kid. i’m a firm believer that real-d 3D is currently an overused gimmick that audiences quickly got sick of after movies like avatar utilized it with purpose. for me it adds nothing of value to films that clearly only slap it on because ticket prices are higher in 3D. but this 3D trend that…

    “my guitar class is a patriarchy”
