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…
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…
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
