• Cry Macho

    Cry Macho

    ★★★½

    Fun fact: you can actually tell when it’s Clint’s stunt double throughout the entire film. Just look for a scene where he does literally any movement.


    This movie is lacking in a lot of ways. The acting isn’t necessarily up to snuff. The exposition is extremely basic and uninteresting for the most part, but I actually still felt a lot from this movie. It was damn nice to see an actual likable Clint Eastwood protagonist in one of his directed…

    When you rape, murder, and steal, but it’s justified because you’re literally Satan.

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★½

    This movie did not put me in the mood for love. It did put me in the mood for noodles.

    Eastwood is excellent at making protagonists that I detest. Big difference between Walt and Josey Wales is that Walt has a character progression and becomes a bit of a better person. I would say this is some of the most realistic development for an old guy I’ve seen, and I guess Clint would know about that. It’s not necessarily comfortable to see an old man come to terms with his biases, especially when they’re so deeply rooted and so firm…

    ★★★½

    You know about every step this movie is going to take, and every line that will be said, but that doesn’t stop it from being good. Hiro really got that Ezra Bridger energy.

    Get the fuck out of here Rocky. Johnny T is the true Italian stallion.

    ★★★★★

    I watched it. I actually fucking watched it. And I will never apologize for how I watched it twice in a week’s span


    Obviously Fletcher and Andrew are fuckin perfect characters, but yknow Andrew’s dad earns some respect too. Good on him for being a badass single dad.

  • The Royal Tenenbaums

    The Royal Tenenbaums

    ★★★★½

    Gene Hackman gives one of the most charming performances. I know Royal’s an awful guy, but I really can’t help but want him to succeed.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★★½

    Watching this again on a giant screen and basically in a theater seat was awesome. I don’t like Jim Carrey, but this is his best performance. Also Elijah Wood usually plays such kind and compassionate characters. It was really funny to see him be such an absolute creep in this one.

    I’m glad they labeled this as a “very loose adaptation” cause this shit is basically fantasy. Very cool fantasy though with electric guitars and abs. I’m sure Frank Miller’s original work is much better. Probably has a bit more color at the very least.
