    After Earth

    ★★½

    Nowhere near as bad as most make it out to be. It’s fun enough and there’s a touching scene or two. And as expected James Newton Howard kills it with his score.

    It is becoming a habit for me to watch this one before I fall asleep on Saturday evenings. That Vitamin C needle drop and Joanna Newsom presence is everything.

    I feel like no one will understand how much this movie means to me other than my brother and sister, and my parents. Which made this 35mm film screening hit even harder because i brought my brother along with me. His girlfriend lives in a rent controlled apartment that’s literally one block down from The New Beverley Cinema and that is an actual dream but he’s not a movie fiend like I am (yet?).

    The best musical of all time.…

    Watched this for the first time last night and I was blown away. Made me cry on many occasions and is a fascinating observation on losing your faith but wanting to bring it back deep down inside with you. And how connecting with the closest people to you facilitates that rejuvenation of faith. After all, what is belief without someone to share it with?  

    Some truly terrifying jump scares that I don’t even want to call jump scares since…

    No film has ever captured carelessness and hopefulnesss and the haze of a drifter like this one has. And beyond being a consistently hilarious film, it also is one of the best looking films you will ever see. Take what you want from me watching Inherent Vice ~> Dazed & Confused ~> The Beach Bum in succession💨

    One of those movies where if you say you don’t love it I kind of look at you differently. Linklater has made many classics but this is his most accessible classic and most “classic” feeling picture he has. You can’t just throw Before Sunset on during a kickback lol. Dazed & Confused is a movie you can throw on at almost any hour of the day regardless of the mood and everyone watching it will love it. One of the best…

    It isn’t my birthday without me watching my favorite movie ever.

    Wandering, yearning, indulging, searching, living; not knowing what you’re doing. Searching for closure that probably came to you years before, or looking for an opening that took years upon years to bring two people together in the way they were meant to be.


    This is the memories and the mis-rememberies you had.

    ★★★½

    Michael Mann fans (me) should also dig this. And just like Heat (1995) they should have kissed at the end. First Kitano and it’s dope, dudes badass as fuck in this

    Extremely surprised that this did nothing for me since I love Satoshi Kon

  • The Last Days of Disco

    The Last Days of Disco

    ★★★★½

    Great balance of camp and serious drama. The dynamic between Chloe Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale reminds me of the dynamic in Showgirls between Elizabeth Berkely and Gina Gershon. Also this soundtrack includes basically every single disco banger you could ask for.

    Chloe Sevigny collects STDs In 90s movies like Thanos collects Infinity Stones.

    And Chloe Sevigny is incredible in this. A beautiful level of portraying how fuckin hard your mid 20s are on top of this being a homage to the disco era, her screen presence is magnificent

    My lord the bluray for this looks wonderful. This is one of the most consistently funny movies you will ever see. It feels like an inspiration for many of the movies I saw as a kid and movies that shaped my sense of humor. It feels like every comedic influence in my life melded into one picture. And man, Barbara Streisand is one of the most incredible performances ever in this.

    The car chase in this is my favorite car…
