    A great ghostly film with no ghosts. This was great to watch on a rainy day in LA in between Christmas and New year's, when time doesn't exist. 

    "Don't tell me you're coming to live in number nine?"

    Gas lights igniting is the first thing we see, and it's a recurring motif. Flames extinguished, flames surging to life, matching the psychological roller coaster that poor Ingrid is on. This was an Oscar well won, and Charles Boyer should have been…

    Yo what the fuck is this? This is one of the big stinkers you find out about when you first start getting in to movies. It's inevitable that a neophyte cinephile (cineophyle?) will encounter Showgirls on many a list of worst movies of all time, probably along with The Room and Plan 9 From Outer Space, both of which are far more enjoyable and interesting than a good deal of the slop people consume these days. Showgirls, however, is legitimately…

    The number one thing you have to realize about this is that it is a funny as fuck movie and the biggest joke is on Tom. The freaky weird hot movie star of the day, in the tail end of the nineties at the beginning of his seemingly neverending cruise to rule movies forever. Listen: Kubrick's movies are always a send up of the Powerful Straight White Male's Plight. Poor white men, they struggle so: they struggle with their cancerous…

    I thought that Coco and Moana were good but that doesn't mean I want to see Disney make the same movie over and over again but with different people groups each time, notching movies like some sort of corporate Thanos collecting woke infinity stones in a (so far successful) attempt at controlling droves of fans to mindlessly defend them at every mild criticism. This is a mishmash of the first two movies I mentioned plus Raya and the Last Dragon…

    I gave up after a couple of days. Had to go back to the horror, Halloween ended too damn early! Good God this movie is so scary, I'll tell you that right now. I found it very scary in a good way, very frightening and freaky and fucked up. Just how I like em! Non-elevated! This is some modern day Freddy K shit right here. The structure and the pacing are unbelievable, extremely tight, the kind of thing that impresses…
