    I Heart Huckabees

    ★★★

    That fire was a bitch ass move!


    Despite everything David O. Russell probably says, this 100% belongs right next to Accidental Love on the shelf at Blockbuster (okay Blockbuster sorts alphabetically but ya know what, they’re out of business now). Definitely a lower tier work of his but I laughed, and it’s wild to see this 15 years after initial release.

  • The Beach

    The Beach

    ★½

    In this perfect beach resort, nothing is allowed to ruin the pursuit of pleasure. Not even dying...

    An absolute misfire as an adaptation on all levels, and with severe storytelling flaws and questionable choices. However almost two decades later the film...still holds up like crap, albeit with a decent score. Everyone tried though, and it's the thought that counts.

    Guardians of the Galaxy walked so Captain Marvel could...walk backwards in heels.

    “Sal, Wyoming isn’t a country...”


    It’s weird that “Attica! Attica!” has become a weird comedy shorthand when in context it moves mountains. I don’t understand that, but I do understand why over forty years later this film is still a huge part of pop culture. Perfect acting, perfect directing, perfect editing...still solid as a rock and plays the audience like a fiddle.
