  • The Shape of Water

    The Shape of Water


    Sally Hawkins does joy and love with so very little. 

    I don't care about Pandora. 

    I hope Richard Jenkins finds love.

    EDIT: Just want to add how much this is still growing on me. Will probably be near the top of my favorite movies of this decade. A warm, funny, beautiful, emphatically sex-positive story about the simple goodness of loving and seeing the humanity in those who are different than you that also manages to raise a stalwart middle-finger to all the fucking white men who fail to do so. So great, especially now.

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    Line reading of the year (decade?)
    Blow. That piece of junk. OUTOFTHESKY.

  • Allied



    Nothing like that nagging encroaching realization of "oh this movie is going to be mad and boring and not matter"

    Sex in a Sandy car, tho

  • Aloha



    Sitting here genuinely trying to think of a movie scene as destructively bad as Bradley Cooper and Jon Krasinski talking via hugging and shoulder-clapping. Failing.

  • Lady Bird

    Lady Bird


    Paying some extra attention to some people and things today. 

    My favorite sex scene ever

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    I probably have negative things to say but I can't remember them because I was so overwhelmed by easily the best final act in any SW movie. The red sand, the Falcon, Luke, and whiny little baby Kylo Ren. Literal tears

  • We Bought a Zoo

    We Bought a Zoo


    Y'all say what you will but I frequently literally pause and think "ok, 20 seconds of insane courage" and I love Crowe and hate myself for that

  • Elizabethtown



    Not even bad just boring

  • The Disaster Artist

    The Disaster Artist


    That cock sock

  • Love Actually

    Love Actually


    jfc this movie is COMPLETELY INSANE

    Snape cheats on Trelawney while Taken makes me cry over his absolutely adorable relationship with nanny McPhee while Sling Blade COMMITS A CRIME for which Hugh Grant blames the victim while Rick Grimes is the worst best man ever and hits on bend it like Beckham and also bill nighy=gay Mick Jagger. 

    God Only Knows why this made my heart sing so much. 

    I'm convinced there's a great bitter cynical reading of this movie as being about the folly of love especially at the holidays but it's too half-baked right now

  • Justice League

    Justice League
