    Christmas with the Kranks

    I did another free writing while watching this shitty movie once again. My biggest takeaway is that Caroline Rhea should have been the gay savior of the movie. If you read this in its messy entirety... bless you.

    Tim Allen is a fucking conservative. I wonder if Jamie Lee Curtis hated working with him. Not to mention his character is insufferable, but there is no way in hell this is a character because he acts the same in everything he…

  • The Miseducation of Cameron Post

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post

    ★★★★½

    It’s a rare occurence when you see a film in the exact moment you need to come to you. It’s one of those things where emotion swells your body, saving it from decomposing, lost in the sea of mediocre films. The Miseducation of Cameron Post is such a film for me. I’d like to point out first that I cannot really tell in this instance if this is a film for everyone, but I am willing to make an argument…

    Urban Legends: Final Cut

    ★★

    Loretta Devine is truly the saving grace of this film. There's some nice kill scenes in here, but overall is kind of just dribble with movie references thrown in and not too well. Like they clearly know film, but not well enough to know what to do with it.

    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    ★★★★½

    This film is comforting to someone like me who sees a bug in my house or at work and I desperately try to find it safety before someone else sees me with it. Which, I get that may be a literal translation of the film, it's still apt. The film understands the necessities of every single life form that isn't human and how it goes out of its way to try and fix everything we have fucked the planet up…

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas

    Reasons why Letterboxd should take this film more seriously:

    - Ron Howard's best film. Can you think of something better? I can't.
    - One of three Oscar noms Jim Carrey was robbed of.
    - I'm sorry but the script is funny as hell and makes this trainwreck so pleasing.
    - Utter madness on the screen.
    - ORIGINAL SONG "WHERE ARE YOU CHRISTMAS" SANG BY THE TALENTED FAITH HILL (and co written by the Queen of Christmas herself, Mariah Carey)

    First and foremost, if you're

    I don't care if you don't like this movie. (Trust me, I know people...) This movie isn't for you, and it's above you. It thrives off of people not caring about it. The people are part of an underground phenomena that doesn't need any kind of fame. Everything about this is a culture phenomenon. Don't get me wrong, it's not a very mainstream thing, but things leak out. For fucksake, Madonna is…
