    What a wonderful,
    little film. I love my friends.
    I miss them dearly.

    Damn near perfect.

    A Charlie Brown Christmas

    If all else fails, and I find myself lost in the darkness of the season. This will be the net that catches me.

  • Fullmetal Alchemist

    Fullmetal Alchemist

    This was my first time watching this series in half a decade. It was roughly that long ago I watched Brotherhood as well, and with my memory being a tad fuzy I'm going to try and refrain from making too many comparisons. Also this is just my rambled typings after finishing the anime and by no means a thorough analysis.

    Fullmetal Alchemist 2003 is frankly a great series that gets a lot of its criticism solely based on the perception…

    Kinda like Gummo but without the scary.

  • A Page of Madness

    A Page of Madness

    This is my second time viewing this film, and my opinion has changed some. While the editing, lighting, music, acting and mise en scene create a vivid and frightening collage that seems far far ahead of the visual techniques that were common practice for this era of filmmaking, I and it seems many others really struggled to find a clear intent or narrative thread present in the film. Which for me, tested my patience a great deal.

    But then again, there is a lot to appreciate in an impenetrable mystery. Especially one as beautiful, unsettling and oddly breath taking as A Page Of Madness.

  • The Voices

    The Voices

    "Oh for fucks sakes" was probably the phrase I uttered the most while watching this movie, the next being "oh no...." and *deep long exhale*.

    Clear creativity on display, and Ryan Reynolds gives an amazing performance but good god does this movie frustrate me.

  • The Cat in the Bag

    The Cat in the Bag

    "He who hesitates is lost"

    I love it when a film feels like a large conversation. Especially when the film never fully endorses a particular perspective, allowing the audience to decide for themselves what to take away from what is being said. The Cat in the Bag depicts many conversations in its 74 minute runtime and the majority of them take place between Claude and Barbara. Two characters I relate to immensely for very different reasons and in so many…

  • When Harry Met Sally...

    When Harry Met Sally...

    As much as the visual gags and cut aways are super fun, despite how much chemistry Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal have together on screen, despite how this film's depiction of Autumn makes my heart flutter in the same way Vince Guaraldi's music does, there's something about this film's depiction of romance that doesn't sit well with me. And I think that's largely to do with how much the narrative of the film endorses Harry's perspective when it comes to…
