    And for what? For a little bit of money. There's more to life than a little money, you know. Don't you know that? And here y'are. And it's a beautiful day. Well... I just don't understand it.

    The Coen brothers made several exceptionally good films prior to this, but Fargo was - for mainstream audiences, at least - their real coming out party. With some vital assistance from Carter Burwell's haunting score, Roger Deakins behind the camera, and Frances McDormand,…

    Thank you for giving our precious Pussy a ride home. We love Pussy.
    Yes, we do.

    Say what you want about Quentin Tarantino, the man knows how to make me walk out of a 2 hour and 40 minute movie with a huge fucking smile on my face. Very Highly Recommended.

    The modern world comes to Downton.

    A few years ago, when this wonderful period television show first made its transition to the big screen, I was very pleasantly surprised, concluding that I wouldn't mind if they kept right on making these every few years. Well, I guess I got what I asked for. But, while this sequel hits quite a few pleasantly familiar emotional and comedic beats, I can't say I'm walking away from it with quite the same upbeat…

    You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned.

    Bong Joon-Ho can really do no wrong. I can’t describe how good this was without spoiling it. But just know - totally worth your time. Don’t let the subtitles scare you away. This is an Oscar-caliber film. See It.

    A cinematic experience unlike anything else you’re going to see this year. Do yourself a favor and see this on the largest screen with the best sound system you can - this will not be the same on home video. And be prepared to have your heart racing for 2 hours straight. 

    The film is an incredible achievement from top to bottom, but the immersive…
