Definitively correct about all things including movies & ur mom :*
17 Again 2009
I was an intern on this movie when I was 17 :))) And I owe Zac Efron an apology. Here goes:
An angry producer dude in Oakley sunglasses told me rule #1 of being on set was WE COULDN’T TALK TO ZAC EFRON. NO WAY. DON’T EVEN LOOK AT HIM. Zac was at Beatles-level stardom to 14 year olds during 2008 — girls were chasing him all over the grounds of the high school where we were shooting, banging on…
Boston Strangler 2023
Can’t explain it but I feel like this movie was made in 2006. Maybe cause that’s the year The Departed came out, which is also about Boston? Great stuff comin’ outta Boston. Murder, mostly. Or maybe I’m getting 2006 vibes because this is such a male version of a story about women, it feels like a very special episode of Mad Men? Idk! I had fun. I always have fun when Carrie Coon is around. But ya, 2006.
Spin Me Round 2022
Baena movies are always so weird! Never quite sure what the point is, but the games work enough to keep me watching till the end. Usually wind up wishing the writing/directing was 25% tighter or more realized. Kinda feel like asking “why’d you wanna make this?” which is the most horrifying question I can think of asking at the end of a movie. But I also feel kinda happy these things exist? Again I’ll just say: weird!
The Worst Person in the World 2021
Saw this at a q&a last night because New York is the best city in the world, and aside from the fact that I will have to sue the filmmakers over using my life story without permission, I loved this movie. To me, this is a coming of age story, and I now believe all coming of age stories should be about people entering theirs 30s. Like being 17 or 18, being in your late 20s is such a confusing…
Under the Banner of Heaven 2022
My most mentally ill take: Mormon Andrew Garfield is hottest Andrew Garfield.
