  • Luca


    Luca is a generational talent. Pristine court vision, high basketball IQ, and a leader on and off the court. At only 22 years of age, he is only beginning to show the world what he can do.

    Uhhhhh wait sorry guys wrong Luka.

    The Green Knight


    The film ends and the theater is silent. No one immediately stands up to leave. There is a collective air of "What the actual fuck just happened?"

    When movies end like this, I always know I've seen something extraordinary. Sometimes the extraordinary is pretentious try hard material, but most often it is breathtaking, original art.

    The latter is the case with The Green Knight. I had no idea what happened after my second post-lockdown theater experience, and needed a solid…

    I absolutely agree with the opinion that it is nice seeing Marvel cast a more diverse ensemble in its recent pictures. And not just for ethnic diversity. Eternals has a deaf character and a gay character. But the gay superhero honestly feels thrown in to please the political correctness of the times.

He is so distinctive with it.

    Anyone else see Georges…

    I had the pleasure of selecting People on Sunday for this week's Collab Film Club. The idea was to watch a pre-Hollywood Billy Wilder film, when he was still in Germany. Wilder contributed to the movie before Hitler came to power. Ironically, after watching the movie, I research it and learn that Wilder actually only worked on the movie for "a couple minutes," according to the Siodmak brothers, who direct. Oh well.

    It was still fun to watch, ironically on…

    Alright, my fault. I'm super late. Will you still let me in to join the hype party?

    This is the first movie I ever put on my Letterboxd account watchlist, and I've been waiting forever to see it with a buddy. We finally got together to watch it tonight. And wow, we were both speechless at the end.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Amy Adams truly are the three headed beast everyone claims them to be. The Master has…
