    Fun fact: my parents named me after Tyler Durden. Thanks mom and dad for naming me after one of the most badass mentally ill terrorists in cinematic history!

    Spectacular. Gaspar Noé is quickly becoming one of my favorite filmmakers, as the two films I’ve seen from him so far have gotten a 10/10 from me. 

    I felt repulsed during the tunnel sequence,

    Most of the movie just felt like one big advertisement for other WB projects. 

    LeBron James gives one of the worst acting performances I’ve seen recently in a major blockbuster movie, which is funny considering he literally plays himself.

    Watched for a Discord watch party. It's been nearly three years since I've last seen it, so I also figured it was time for a rewatch.

    I don't have too much to say about this, as it's pretty much all been said before due to it being The Freakin' Shining, but what I will say is that this film builds atmosphere and tone like none other.
    The miraculous sound design mixed with the incredible cinematography by John Alcott, the amazing…
