    I think this is the best movie I’ve ever seen

    I think the moment that really solidified this movie as a piece of crap for me upon revisiting it was the scene where Loomis explains in a voiceover that the incarcerated young Michael Myers has developed “an obsession with constructing primitive masks”

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★

    I had very low expectations for this movie - its mere existence seemed like an attempt to pander to Asian audiences and white liberals on Twitter. As an Asian-American I don’t really feel like it’s that important to see Asians “represented” in superhero films - I relate more to Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker than I do to a Master of Kung Fu who can kill people with his fists, and although it may have felt empowering as a kid to…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★

    This movie felt approximately four hours long. There is a needle drop in every scene. Every character says “fuck” and “shit” for comedic effect, but it’s never funny. Harley Quinn is an absolutely pointless character. If they fixed all of this, the movie would probably be great

    ★½

    Hadn’t seen this since it came out in theaters and wanted to revisit it after the director of Candyman put it on a list of films she curated for Cathode Cinema about “the body.” I remember now why I forgot this movie - everything in it is bland and forgettable except for the gore effects.

    Note to self: Don’t watch this crap ever again

    ★★★★½

    A two-hour panic attack. I love how there’s a Wang Chung song in every scene, even in diegetic settings with Wang Chung songs that aren’t even part of the score that they composed for this movie

    Excruciating. The early 2000s were truly the worst era for horror

  • Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

    Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

    ★★★★

    Ignore all the other F13 movies and ignore all the people who shit on this one - This is the best entry in the franchise and one of the most underrated horror films of all time

    ★★½

    I don’t remember much about Brandon Cronenberg’s first feature film and I’m probably not going to remember much about this one either

    I think I’m the only person who regards this as Bakshi’s best? He’s really hit or miss for me and I find most of his stuff to be too unfocused and meandering. This isn’t as sophisticated as Heavy Traffic or Coonskin but it’s perfect satire and one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen and I love the way it takes advantage of the medium to show what you can get away with using anthropomorphic cartoon animals. Also, the social commentary is still relevant today and reaffirms the notion that we’re living in a shitty retarded version of the Sixties
