    Mars Attacks!

    ★★★★½

    I don't know if I realized how beautifully this was shot. The back half maybe gets a little repetitive but there's so many truly sublime moments that I can't care. Also shockingly good character drama.

    This movie fucked with me as a kid because I had never seen a movie where whether characters lived or died was so unrelated to their dramatic role or morality.

  • Ed Wood

    Ed Wood

    ★★★★½

    This is the energy to bring in 2022. Too in love with your art to care if it's any good. Gathering a stable of likeminded weirdos to hang out with. Wearing cozy sweaters.

    You know how Ed Wood is about someone with no natural talent but a strong work ethic and positive outlook on life who recruits a stable of like-minded people to create a family?
    This is the exact opposite story of that.

    Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!

    ★★

    How in the hell did nobody making this realize that by making Tad such a good, genuine dude, that everyone is going to root for him and Rosalie to end up together? 
    Why is the audience expected to root for Topher Grace’s unrequited love while laughing at Kathryn Hahn’s?
