    Casablanca

    ★★★★½

    The writing on this thing is so good for its time. Even the sentimentality of this era of film works perfectly as it feeds into the central tragedy of the film. It doesn’t matter to me whether Ilsa is truly still in love with Rick or whether Victor is the one who she has dedicated her life to, it’s a story about the fact that that among the many beautiful forms that love takes, sacrifice is the hardest to commit to.

  • Knock at the Cabin

    Knock at the Cabin

    ★★

    It’s hard to take this movie seriously when it has the unbearably sincere cadence of a Dhar Mann video and the most weightless, imagined stakes of a fathom event Christian blockbuster. All of this presented in the most Shyamalan way possible, with the subtext just uttered out by the characters draining any juice from the premise, makes this is a very boring experience.

    I am not familiar with the source material but I don’t really think the Shyamalan horror route…

  • Ossos

    Ossos

    ★★★½

    Crushing, oppressive, and most of all—human. It’s all-too-often told story of how much poverty and a lack of control over one’s material conditions deteriorate the soul of a human being.

    It really does grow on you. What’s going on with British action directors and their complicated feelings about weed.

    Liked the new cast, but it think 5 is better. Did like the fact Wes Craven/Kevin W predicted the toxic girl-incel nerd nexus era

  • Scream 3

    Scream 3

    ★★★

    Weakest one so far. Idk, my views might be negatively affected by those fucked up proto-TERF bangs on Courteney Cox.

  • Infinity Pool

    Infinity Pool

    ★★★

    It just felt like it was getting somewhere, but it didn’t. Doesn’t help that the conceit of the movie can’t really be called original at this point, so to do a truly interesting story, there needs to be a more thorough exploration. But you still get the dread and the blood and the orgies and the skull-bashings you’d expect if you’ve seen Possessor (2020). Plus it cements the fact that Mia Goth is a demented lady joker and a star. 

    So overall, interesting but not enough, mid, pending a rewatch.

    “The battle of the soul is fought in the forum of art.”
    -David Warner as Gus Gold with one of the most surprisingly insightful lines in this fun franchise.

    ★★★½

    It’s awkward half the time, but very clever other times. The cast is way more fun to watch, though I’m glad the CW ass part of the cast gets disposed off pretty quick. At least it’s still fun.

    God, to have lived in an era where smart, self-aware horror was actually also fun and goofy. Let’s see how the new one holds up.
