    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★★★

    "He's getting slow."
    "He's been retired for five years."
    "But he is still... John Wick."
    "We will see."

    Parabellum was somehow even more entertaining at home on the 65" TV. I picked up on so many little details that I'd missed in the theater that just added to my enjoyment. I know that the story's gotten way beyond what it started out as and barely resembles any kind of semblance of reality, but the imagination and the work involved in making these films, not just making them entertaining, but making them more complex from film to film... I'm awestruck.

    "Oh. Oh, please do not stop on my account. Do you know what? My vag is stuffed with diplomas. Soon, it's gonna be stuffed with job offers and glowing profiles and commendations from the governor. So, while you guys were all studying AP Handjobs, I was kicking ass and busting curves, and I'm going to continue to do that at Yale next year, so... I like my choices and wherever you three are next year, I hope you do, too."…

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame

    ★★★

    Film #11 of Third Time's Cursed

    "Why was I not made of stone, like thee?"

    I've read and loved Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but watching the film, I'm left feeling a bit let down, both by the things the film is missing from the book as well as the scenes that Lon Chaney's on screen. His presence is so strong that the film just seems lacking whenever he's not there. It's still a good film, just not a great one, in my opinion.

    ★★

    "If I were my father, I'd have you tortured."
    "No. If you were your father, I doubt very much if I would have kissed you."

    I remember starting to watch this as a kid when it was on TV and being very disappointed that the cartoon Pink Panther wasn't in the film, just the credits. The rest of this didn't appeal to my little kid brain, so I changed the channel or went outside or any number of things. Oddly…

    ★★★★½

    "Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue."

    Jake Gyllenhaal is creepiness personified in the character of Louis Bloom. He shares a number of personality traits with a certain Travis Bickle, but Lou learns fast. He does the research. He knows just enough to make himself very dangerous. To the people he works with. To the people he films. And to anyone who might get in the way of him getting his story. Even the story is…

    From Beyond

    ★★★★

    Film #6 of Third Time's Cursed

    "Don't you understand? This is the greatest discovery since van Leeuwenhoek first looked through a microscope and saw an amoeba!"
    "Yeah, but he wasn't down there with the amoebas!"

    From Beyond is one of those films that I've seen several times, but while I'm watching it, I can't remember just what's going to happen next. It's such an odd story, dealing with other dimensions and seeing things from them with the pineal gland and…
