My first Soska Sisters film. These ladies know their shit, at least where it comes to singularly voiced feminist commentary/revenge fantasy/extreme surgical body horror in the unique spectrum and intersection at which deliciously gross this film resides.
I say that with broadly spoken cataloguing because I really don’t know where this film rests, and I’m not sure that it knows itself either, and that’s ultimately what the commonly acknowledged sentiment regarding the film’s damp squib ending seems to acknowledge as…
This film might have some horribly dated jokes and counterproductive feminism gags that don’t do its otherwise progressive ideas and themes any favours, but I do laugh like a drain consistently enough when watching this and Reese is giving 110% to her performance as the immortal Elle Woods.
Reese was 25 when she was in this?!
Elle Woods’ Harvard Video application is a work of art
Jennifer (Is she actually a good actor or not?) Coolidge!
SHE DOESN’T NEED BACKUPS, SHE'S GOING TO HAVARD!
This is the first time I have seen this since college, and even then, my memories were at once vague and inexplicably blurred with Spawn for some reason (both dark comic book movies from the mid to late 90s I assume).
But this thing is kind of incredible as both an artifact and a time, and unquestionably still the best thing Alex Proyas has ever made. It’s such an intensely gothic and GOTH looking film. Its visual creativity not always…
I really wish I had more to say about this one, or that I even enjoyed it for the novelty of its being, its ridiculousness and sense of lightness, but I can’t. It’s hard to be invested let alone engaged in anything that’s going on when the plot and film move so fast that I can’t get a handle on it.
That’s not to say that it's convoluted, but there’s no breathing room or adequate emotional grounding for much or…
💀6 COUNTRIES 3/6 - AUSTRALIA💀
Stranded in rural Australia in the aftermath of a violent pandemic, an infected father (Martin Freeman) desperately searches for a new home for his infant child and a means to protect her from his own changing nature.
Cargo is a 2017 Australian zombie film starring Martin Freeman, this is not your usual type of zombie movie in that I think it’s the first warmfelt zombie tearjerker movie that I have ever…

(1/2) Films from the year you were born (1993)
The Olsen twins are very cute but it’s the supporting cast who chews up the scenery. Cloris is scary (she terrified me when I watched this as a kid) yet leads the most adorable cult ever??? I love Oscar and his house. Mr. N (I still don't know why he had them call him that???) was the best though with his over the top theatricality. I…
Disney's Robin Hood is so breezy and relaxed that it unfortunately makes a slight impression. Still, Robin Hood is a nice movie.
Disney takes inspiration from the folk hero side of Robin Hood, portraying the humble adventures of a common man (or fox). This Robin Hood isn't overburdened with a tragic backstory and life-or-death motivation, he just cares about protecting his community and enjoying himself. It's a refreshing change-of-pace and it's fun to see characters enjoying the adventure they're in.…
The first of the package films was “interesting” to say the least, sure the parts felt like history class just showing Walt’s animators in South America doing stuff, but the cartoons featured range from enjoyable to average at best
Lake Titicaca: First of two cartoons with Donald Duck, where he visits the aforementioned city and meets some locals and a llama
Pedro: A story about an airplane, and that’s it

Hoop-Tober 8.0 #50

After re-watching House Of 1000 Corpses (2003) for the first time since it's release and The Devil's Rejects (2005) for the second time, this
Hoop-Tober, I got to Rob Zombie's final film in the Firefly Trilogy,
3 From Hell (2019).
After I watched 3 From Hell (2019) I started to watch the "Making Of" documentary that comes with the Blu-ray, and in it Bill Moseley recounts many times while appearing…
"She's running toward hope, let her run"
Serious question: How much fun would it be to be one of the founding elders?
This movie is the incarnation of one of my favorite types of mood atmosphere (the "old timey town"), which is done so well you can practically taste it. On this viewing I was struck by the chemistry Bryce has with everyone who shares the screen with her, and was drawn much more into the "drama" side of the story because of her performance.
*And let's hear it for Fran Kranz and being so OCD about his shirts getting wrinkled!
