    ★★★★½

    Made spaghetti and meatballs before viewing what a splendid evening. I think the amount of narration holds it back a little for me but pretty much every scene is legendary and deservedly so.

  • Blue Collar

    ★★★★★

    The funny but also brutal movie is definitely my favourite type of movie. Blue Collar brings both big time. Been wanting to watch it for a while and it was incredible.

  • Touch of Evil

    ★★★★

    Either Orson Welles was really great at acting drunk or he acted and directed a movie while completely hammered. Either way, he’s a legend.

  • Basic Instinct

    Basic Instinct

    Vastly overestimates the abilities of psychology majors

  • Raging Bull

    Raging Bull

    ★★★★½

    Masculinity collapsing on itself. The first few minutes, in which Jake’s fight spills into a brawl which results in a woman getting trampled pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the movie. Loved Joe Pesci even more on this watch too, and De Niro obviously.

  • Nope

    ★★★★

    I hope this makes 999 bazillion dollars. I need more cool aliens and other zany creatures on the big screen desperately.

  • Hearts and Minds

    Hearts and Minds

    As somebody living in 21st century Canada, this film and it’s message may not hit quite the same as it may have in 1970s America. Any conversation I’ve ever had about Vietnam has essentially amounted to “that was pretty fucked,” and then we move on. There is still and will for a long time be much to learn from the Vietnam saga though, and this film very candidly outlines why it was fucked. Certainly an important document.

  • Before Midnight

    Before Midnight

    ★★★★

    A wee bit pessimistic on this one. I understand the complaints that she comes off as too crazy but this dude is out here taking daily 2 hour contemplative walks I think it’s pretty reasonable for her to have some built up frustration. Anyways this will hit different when I’m 47 and divorced or I will simply die alone and never revisit it.

  • Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise

    ★★★★½

    This movie, if watched in the wrong mental state could send somebody down a dark path.

  • The Age of Innocence

    The Age of Innocence

    ★★★★

    Period romances are truly a blessed genre. I can’t imagine living like that but it makes for great books and movies, I suppose because we can relate to certain elements of social standards and comforts being so difficult to escape. The Age Of Innocence is Daniel Day Lewis and Martin Scorsese, so of course it is a valuable addition to the genre. The people in this movie are very beautiful too which helps.

  • La Strada

    That girl needs a hug 😔

  • Hard Boiled

    ★★★★

    Absolutely bonkers. So many innocent deaths, which is cool. Every action movie needs a likeable bruiser named Mad-Dog.
