    Here's an idea: get 110 lions, a handful of tigers, a few leopards, jaguars, and cheetahs and throw them in and around a house with a handful of humans. Despite knowing 1000% for sure that no one died during the making of this incredibly, insanely ill advised production I was just waiting for someone to get eaten (that's not to say that no one got seriously hurt, because according to Wikipedia over 70 people did).

    This is one of those movies that everyone is always saying is an all time classic that I had never seen so I figured I'd give it a watch. It was enjoyable but also schmaltzy and too long for its own good. The tone of the film started off sweet but by the end it felt cloying. I dunno, maybe it was built up too much for me and I'm glad I watched it but I can't see this being an all time great film.

    Bucket List: Every. Damn. Cannon. Film.

    A stupid softcore sex comedy which is another one I'd point to in my argument that these British sex films are much more light-hearted than their American counterparts. That aside, I can't say it's really worth watching.

    Jason Momoa murdering drug runners in creative ways set against a beautiful snowy mountain backdrop. You either want to see that or you don't.

    Mickey Rourke bringing Kim Basinger to his '80s modern apartment, drenched in the diffuse reflected light from surrounding skyscrapers, playing Brian Eno on his high end stereo, seen through rich film grain like some sort of Patrick Nagel fever dream is 10000% my aesthetic.
