    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

    I died for you, Doc. Why shouldn't you return the favor?

    Vietnam as a looming corpse over the lives of America. Silent, but present, and sometimes deadly. Deathdream or Dead of Night, whichever title you want to use for it, isn't the first horror or thriller film even this early to use Vietnam as an allegory for its terror, but it's admirable to see how effective it can be in a lower budgeted format. I was reminded of Targets especially…

    Take on Me

    Gay guy who really likes Bloodsport representation. I'm a sucker for modern animation in any capacity, so I was biased going into Flee even with the overwhelmingly positive reactions alongside it. Overall, very strong movie. I liked its style, think somewhere between the storybook aesthetic of Persepolis and the sense of the realistic human figure from Tower, if I had to compare it to other uses of utilizing animation towards true stories.

    There's nothing to fear, except God. Whatever that means to you.

    Had to pee so bad by the time it was over, felt like my penis was going to explode, and I think I have pissed out some of my own brains, because now as I am trying to think of what to write about this movie, my first thought is "Head empty." So, let's just roll with it, and see where my fingers take my keyboard to. Loved this.…

    CHAOS SOON COME

    A new bar of quality for me now is genuinely "Yeah, but is it better than Venom: Let There Be Carnage?" I could make a simple reference to this being just about the best glow-up I've seen from an original film to its sequel, but to be fair, I think I have to more address Venom. I don't find it to be a "good" movie, but what remains so fascinating about it is that…
