    Put this on in the background while I decorated but noticed the fascist undertones are STRIKING!

  • Troll



    Classic urban fantasy. I rewatched this so many times as a kid, so there’s huge nostalgia value here for me. In reality this is probably a 2.5 star film, but by god if it isn’t fun.

    Cheesy? Oh yeah, but even the creatures and 2D effects are incredibly charming even today. Like opening some old spell book. 

    Also lesbian professor Mcgonagall? Sweet Jesus yes. I’m betting money JK Rowling stole top secret information from this masterpiece.

    The BEST thanksgiving movie 🍗🍷🍽

  • Klaus



    Extremely predictable but super holly jolly. Evokes some very strong Disney renaissance vibes, but it’s done so so well it feels fresh and exciting. If I saw this as a kid it would definitely be a favorite.

    Tubman’s true story is not done true justice by this film. Cynthia Erivo carries the whole film on her back.

    Janelle Monáe should’ve been able to live out her lesbian subplot!

  • Doctor Sleep

    Doctor Sleep


    Claire Denis really said all fluids are the same and I can’t stop thinking about that.

    Anyways I read this book in high school. I hated it then and I hate it now. I can’t believe King made this story canon. 

    Mike here does the best with what he’s given. The story just can’t be saved - especially if you’re adapting it so faithfully. Such a strong disconnect between the king-isms and the Kubrick-isms I found it very distracting and honestly laughable. 

    Best part was definitely how CRAZY big hat lady Rose was. She really called that kid “BitchChild” (tm)

    Best served with lentils.

    As if I needed yet another reason to be afraid of squatters in my first-class bougie-ass walls 🙄🤮🍑
