  • Croupier


    A lot of casino movies on criterion right now. This one had poker chips and roulette, which was cool.

  • Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
  • Shaft


    Me talking to a plant: “Shaft has a certain air about him. He is very calm, and often funny, in tense or even violent situations.”

  • The Last Stand

    The Last Stand

    I didn’t watch this movie recently. Someone else logged it and I tried to mark it as watched, but now letterboxd marked it as if I watched it yesterday. My friend messaged me about it and I had to explain to him I hadn’t watched it, just marked it. I don’t know how to erase.

    I do remember seeing it vividly, though. I was at universal studios Orlando and had just finished a day at both theme parks. I was on…

  • Where’s Poppa?

    Where’s Poppa?

    Great and good and bad and abhorrent jokes within. Rest In Peace to all the talented dead within this movie

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    Watched the first half and then I felt a little sick from flamin hot Cheetos w/ lime, cheesecake bars and vanilla ice cream I had just eaten and had to use the bathroom.

    I laughed at the first half a good deal, but I probably won’t finish the rest bc the people I was watching it with are already done with it. I’ve seen it before I remember what happens. I’m content to move on and try new things from here on out.

  • Godzilla vs. Kong

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    Action was awesome, but thought it weird that only line in the movie is “which one is which!”

    Every character only said, “which one is which” or “which is that one?” They kept asking each other over and over, and would answer by just asking the same question back to the other person? Was said hundreds of times. Just weird.

  • Bad Trip
  • Amistad
  • Minority Report

    Minority Report

    Absolutely gorgeous. (Steven) Spielberg and John(ny) Williams breathe life and theater into a story that in any other director’s hands would’ve been interpreted colder than a ice cube! Much more playful than I remember, and so visually independent from all his other stuff. Spielberg is “good” as hell! With this and Catch me if You Can (film), 2002 is my hot contrarian take for Best Spielberg Year (per capita).

  • Mystic Pizza

    Mystic Pizza

    Watched after eating a salad from a recyclable cardboard octagonal box. I like when the owner of Mystic Pizza said that she never had kids of her own. In fact, she said — Jojo, Daisy, Kat, those were her kids. Nice idea!

  • True Lies
