    The Last Waltz


    The best concert documentary of all time? Maybe. Some of the most beautifully orchestrated complicated camera moves I've seen pulled off in a documentary, apparently Scorsese storyboarded the whole set out. And this is right up my alley too my favorite type of music, I loved almost every song and to see so many of my favorite musicians on stage was so profoundly joyous. A little disappointed by Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters not gonna lie, the former just singing…

    The Muppet Christmas Carol


    I guess this really has been done to death, but this might be my favorite version of A Christmas Carol. Michael Caine is pitch perfect and I loved pretty much every song. The muppets also weren't too distracting except for the one playing Dickens and the rat, who kept interrupting at inopportune moments. I like that Caine said he wanted to play Scrooge straight as if there were no muppets and that really comes across. I want to see The Muppet Movie now, but mostly just so I can hear Rainbow Connection again, the songs were my favorite part of this film

    task 15: a film you think would be PERFECT to see at a drive-in theater.

    "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" is definitely a Quentin Tarantino picture, and it doesn't let you forget it by the end. Be that as it may, it's safe to call it the most un-Tarantino-esque work in his eclectic filmography. It's stylized, but there aren't whip zooms. It's violent, but easily his least violent film. The film is not driven by character…

  • Joker



    On second thought...

    First two thirds: almost a slog, derivative, predictable, by the numbers, gorgeous score, nice cinematography, great Joaquin Phoenix

    Last act: pretty gripping, great musical choices, operatic, grandiose, extravagant, ballsy, great Joaquin Phoenix

    "Joker" is good, not great
