    ‘No, he doesn't believe in shirts!’

    Far from their best, definitely the worst Marx brothers film I’ve seen. Who’s great idea was it to make the Marx brothers human? They shouldn’t be characterised they should just be funny! Some jokes land some don’t. It was a fun film with some funny moments and a pretty good story but ultimately it fell flat in a lot of places. Sloppy writing and bad songs were the main problem. I don’t have much else to say about this film, check it out if you love Marx brothers. Here’s a shameless plug for a fun list I made.

    This may have gotten the short end of the stick between this and cormans first poe-prince film, but it doesn’t stop it from being great.

A lot of the this film I love but there are a few kinks that could be worked out. Still a brilliant addition to the Corman-poe-prince series. Excited to see how the other ones turn out, hopefully as good as the first two!

    ‘I suspect foul play. I have eliminated no suspects.’

I would argue it’s Rian Johnson’s best work and while Daniel Craig has done better, this is definitely top 5. The performances and writing are clean cut and perfect giving us a great setting and a smart story. The cinematography is beautiful while the direction is a bit wonky it’s still incredibly…

    ‘Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?’

    Some of y’all will be shocked to know that I have never seen this film before, and so am I. This film takes a swashbuckling leap into blockbusters and stays at the top and the greatest one ever. Harrison Fords iconic portrayal as indie is astonishing and his best work to date. The opening shows his talents and gives one of the best character introductions ever, it’s so simple yet so…
