One of my favorite movies of all time. In my top ten depending on what day you ask me. I can't even use enough adjectives to describe just how much I love this movie and what it means to me. Moore's performance in my opinion is iconic. I've seen many others play drunk, but none as endearing as Moore's Arthur. Gielgud's Oscar winning performance will always put this movie on cinephiles radar, but there is so much more to this…
Short Circuit is one of those films that is difficult to rate. How much of what I like about the film relies on nostalgia, and how much is actually still really good. First of all I have to acknowledge that one of the best and funniest parts of the film happens to be the most cringe worthy part of the film, when viewed with a 21st century lens.

Wow, even better than I remembered. So utterly brutal, just like Scene From a Marriage. Liv and Ingrid toe to toe in an epic battle of out of this world acting skills.

Watch Gaslight to see Ingrid vulnerable to this, where she is cold and callus. Just two utterly outstanding performances.
Fantastic, loved it, Joon-ho nails this one, perfect mixture of suspense, terror and comedy. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is how much of the movie was telegraphed. But still a great ride.
This has to be the best year for Oscar nominated best picture.
Best picture nom order.
1. Marriage Story
2. The Irishman
3. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
4. Little Women
5. JoJo Rabbit
7. Ford vs Ferrari
4-6 are interchangeable.
