    Richard Jewell

  • Back to the Future Part II

    Back to the Future Part II

    Food for thought: if ‘The Oscars’ were, instead, ‘The Fun Awards’, this may have very well won best picture 1990!

  • My Octopus Teacher

    My Octopus Teacher

    Our Cartoon President

  • The Social Dilemma

    The Social Dilemma

    Made me think phone is fucked up and I am fucked up and letterboxd is bad too and gamefies what used to be one of my more untainted hobbies of watching movies. But also a very goofy narrative but also buoyed by featuring actors I like. Did you know Vincent Kartheiser faked a receding hairline over the five seasons of Mad Men? That is so funny, Mad Men is so good and I never got to talk about it on Letterboxd. That’s the real social dilemma — no mad men on letterboxd!

  • Les Misérables

    Les Misérables

    🎶Boo, bore, sucks, no FUUUUUUUUN!🎶

  • Galaxy Quest

    Galaxy Quest

    ★★★★★

    A very funny movie that still gives you the thrill of feeling like you are actually in space. The same compliment cannot even be given to most actual Star Trek films, which is why I’ve heard more than a few times that this is “the best Star Trek movie.” I don’t know if that is fair to say, but I’d personally much rather watch this over most any actual Trek-lore.

    Good parody is pretty impossible to find in feature length…

  • The Book of Henry

    The Book of Henry

    Watched ‘The Book of Henry’ on September 11th

  • The Master

    The Master

    ★★★★★

    So incredibly *funny* and ~tender~. Maybe one of my favorites! 

    At the very least, if the A.F.I. was the G.A.B.E., “pig fuck!” would be #7 on the top 100 movie quotes of all time

  • After Hours

    After Hours

    Was forty minutes into The Master, watching it on a laptop in my room. Ate too much chicken in there and it made me claustrophobic so I came out to finish The Master in the living room. Demi had the DVD menu up for “After Hours” and asked if I’d like to watch “After Hours”. Demi was sewing pants and was going to watch a movie while he sewed pants. I said “I was going to ask if you wanted…

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I gobble up visiting your significant other’s parents house too early as an existentially dreadful out-of-body experience. That is funny and true! Nothing more disorienting than to feel not home in what is clearly — a home (and potentially your second!) Never imagined a psych horror comedy movie about that specific feeling so that was fun and funny. Some of my exes dads had pool tables & exercise bikes in the basement that made me horribly sad for reasons I can’t really relate…

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    When you go into the Tenet 5000, everything is different. Up is Down and Shrek is Donkey. My favorite movie character of all time is “The Protaganist” from Tenet. 

    We rented a Toyota Tacoma from LAX to watch this in the bed of a truck at a drive-in in San Diego, California.

  • Being John Malkovich

    Being John Malkovich

    hits the nail on the head, good-movie-wise!
