    Holy Shit. 

    First and Foremost, we should have Andrew Lloyd Webber arrested for making this abomination a possibility and simultaneously give him a lifetime achievement award for entertainment in cinema. 

    There will never truly be something written that captures the chaos that IS this film. It’s one of the most upsetting, ugly, inconsistent, bizarre, hilarious, beautiful, confusing, fun, stupid things I have ever seen on screen. From cats dancing on people’s graves to the way every human sign in London…

    Needed to turn off my brain and this was a good choice. Fun, harmless, catchy. Rosita can get it. She should’ve killed her husband and run off with Gunter. Would’ve been a full extra star from me. Hated the mouse with my life. Glad he’s probably dead. Carly Rae gets some love. Sing!

    Sound and Fury indeed. The season of Black and White movies continues with maybe the most affecting of them all. The direction and cinematography truly shine in a production filled to the brim with excellence. Not one poor performance in the bunch. 

    Frances can truly do it all. There’s nobody better. She doesn’t even want all the awards she’s gonna win from this, I know it. Denzel’s measured descent is so fascinating and powerful to watch. But maybe the standout…

    The name of the famous rapper in the movie (one I refuse to spoil) is so deeply funny that I will never recover from hearing it. 


    The inevitable twist was that I too lost years of my life watching this film.


    this same thing happened to my friend Dave

    Don't Look Up

    There’s a shot in this movie where President Meryl is smoking in front of a giant FLAMMABLE gas tank and saying “we’re the adults here” and it’s like the 24th least subtle thing in the movie. Folks, it’s not great. 

    Genuinely, who is this for? That’s my main takeaway. Just who? There are some decent gags here and there (I genuinely liked the General charging them for snacks and Lawrence being obsessed with that as much as the world ending)…
