    [Seasons 1 & 2]

    TWIN PEAKS - the soap opera of your dreams, your nightmares, and everything in between.

    I haven’t seen this in many years now, and although I’ve always loved it, I connected with it so much more this time. I’m doing a complete rewatch - including reading the diary of Laura Palmer, the Final Dossier, and watching the Missing Pieces - all of which I haven’t read/watched yet. 

    The world of TWIN PEAKS is an unhinged reality -…

    DANCER IN THE DARK is an emotionally sadistic melodrama - the antithesis of a love letter to Hollywood musicals. A visceral masterpiece of naivety and misery. 

    ONE OF MY FAVORITE performances of all time belongs to Björk - she is incredible in this.

    THE EDITING in the musical sequences hurts in the best way possible. It’s chaotic and entrancing.

    I don’t know why I’ve seen this movie so many times - not sure what that says about me…

    I mean come on, Shithouse is just so casually charming. 

    A familiar story told fresh thanks to Raiff’s direction and honest performance. The chemistry between the two is palpable. Maybe Raiff is just a great scene partner because both his films have amazing chemistry between the leads. 

    Many filmmakers would lean away from being overly sweet and sentimental, but he runs with it and it really works. His films may be too sweet for some, but I eat them up…

    ★★★★

    It’s easy to feel the passion for this project, it’s genuine at every turn. I had zero interest in ever seeing a new Pinocchio, but the new story beats introduced in this film are great and allow its heavier themes to really flourish. Definitely teared up.

    The claymation is great.

    I told Siri to pick a number between 1-5. She chose 2 so I will now set a timer for two minutes. I will write the rest of this review in the allotted time until my countdown reaches zero:


    It’s no surprise that this movie is garbage. It goes down the checklist of horror clichés without fail.

    It’s not even remotely interesting, as it was extremely difficult for me to stay awake during. Honestly, the whole movie is just wack.…

    Annabelle Comes Home

    ★★

    Just the presence of Ed and Lorraine at the start fills the movie with a sense of false comfort because it makes you feel like the rest film will be in good hands. 

    From the start, it begs you to think back and reflect on the good times you had watching The Conjuring films. Don’t be fooled, however. It is undoubtably closer in tone and craftsmanship to the spinoff films, rather than The Conjuring films.

    There’s poor writing and awful…
