    have been wanting to watch this forever (literally watched it off an old youtube rip I had saved on my desktop years ago) but finally did once I read that Bill Pullman's character in Sleepless in Seattle was the inspiration for this movie. Very fun and simple romantic comedy that goes exactly how you'd expect a romantic comedy from The State to go. Patrick Willems said it best in his review that this feels like a dry run for They…

    watched this again in advance of talking with Evan Morgan & Adam Brody for the latest episode of the Letterboxd podcast w/ my good friend Mia & Letterboxd editor Gemma Gracewood. Still great! Truly don't remember what I said on the podcast and I refuse to listen for fear of having to confront my own uninterestingness. Probably said something about the movie's intricate and well-woven mystery and brilliant shift in tone. Definitely said something about Adam Brody's butt.

    Julie & Julia

    lovely movie! you can’t make a bad movie with beautiful shots of food, and i do not say that as a challenge to prove me wrong! something inherently funny about tall Meryl. movie absolutely didn’t need to be two hours though. they even throw in a solid 90 seconds of an SNL sketch for some reason? sure, okay!

    even though I think this movie is best when it’s a Julia Child biopic, i relate to Julie a lot in that…

    Sleepless in Seattle

    Nora Ephron's SO fucking good at this it blows my mind. Feels like she writes movies in two halves where you're charmed by someone and led to believe the other person is crazy only to reveal they're both crazy in the second part. There's nothing interesting or revolutionary about me relitigating a popular 90s romcom after watching it for the first time in 2021. but obviously: Bill Pullman and Barbara Garrick (Victoria) were perfectly fine people who deserved way better,…

    I wish this was shot more like a musical but it’s SO Australian and so charming! More working class musicals! More new wave musicals! More over-involved 14 year old boys who are definitely making out with a grown adult woman at the end of the movie! (Eat your heart out, Blank Check)

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    me: okay yes it's a very charming movie and the cast is so stacked and there's a quaintness to everyone's attitudes about the internet and computers but why does the big chain actually win and put the little store out of business with no real consequences or emotional undoing of that plot point and why does joe fox carry on with this manipulation for so long it actually kind of sucks i th–

    Locked Down

    I knew it was gonna be a mistake to watch this, but I still did. Not because I thought it would be good or entertaining, but because I was curious and I thought it would be easy to watch. Which is why it got made- the Netflixification of media churns out project after project like this in service of “easy” entertainment, where the goal isn’t to make something good or truly entertaining, but to make something whose production is the…

    ★★★★★

    A perfect romcom. My favorite romcom! A lovely satire of romantic absolutism and fate. We tell ourselves lies about the rules and reasons for love and create formulas to lead us towards a fate we’ve been sold as purpose– and when we’re scared of these rules we reject them completely, training ourselves to live outside the parameters we’ve come to find suffocating. So what do you do when you decide to love again? How do you embrace the love you…
