    Day 297 out of 365: A very special happy birthday to Bill Murray today. Without him the film would not be the masterpiece that it is.

    Day 296 out of 365:

    Noticed that at the end of the film Nancy taps the bar two times just like the Anchorwoman who taps her paper two times at the start of the film.

  • Casual Sex?

    Casual Sex?

    ★★★

    It’s like if ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ was set at a health resort.

    Sleepless in Seattle

    ★★★★½

    Genuinely shocked that this isn’t talked about as much as the rest of Tom Hanks’ filmography. He is phenomenal in this.

    Day 295 out of 365:

    Noticed that one of the background extras is eating a groundhog cookie when Phil sculpts the angel ice sculpture near the end of the film. Earlier in the film there is a bakery that is selling groundhog cookies so he definitely must have gotten it from there.

  • BASEketball

    BASEketball

    ★★★½

    Feels weaker and more cliche than Trey and Matt’s other stuff which is probably due to it being both written and directed by David Zucker.

  • Defending Your Life

    Defending Your Life

    ★★★½

    It’s rather bland cinematography-wise for a movie about the afterlife.

  • Lost in America

    Lost in America

    ★★½

    Starting to notice a clear pattern in Albert Brooks’ movies. It has a great opening and a great ending but everything in the middle is completely mundane.

    Day 294 out of 365:

    Realised that the “HONK IF YOU ❤️ PHIL” sign was used to foreshadow Phil honking the horn of the news van during the trooper scene when they get stuck in traffic.

  • Modern Romance

    Modern Romance

    ★★★

    A film editor breaks up with his girlfriend and then tries to reinvent his life but fails as he can’t stop thinking about her. The main character is like a non-violent mix between Rupert Pupkin and Travis Bickle so it is very hard to empathise with him.

  • Real Life

    Real Life

    ★★★

    The mockumentary may be my least favourite genre as so many filmmakers have struggled to get it right. Albert Brooks does a decent job but fails to keep it interesting for the most part as he focuses more on the people making the film rather than the people being filmed for the documentary.

    Day 293 out of 365:

    Noticed that one of the old men at the Cherry Street Inn is wearing a jumper made up of a repeated pattern of squares.
