    McCabe & Mrs. Miller

    ★★★★★

    A man walks into town and hopes to make some money. In his time there, we see seasons pass and the town constantly grow. In a western that man is usually a stoic badass who knows how to or, at least can get himself get himself out of any situation. McCabe is not that guy. He is a self-conscious, foolish, yet utterly charismatic “gunfighter”. I put that in quotes because he never actually draws his gun when someone is facing…

    Gamerbro GROUNDHOG DAY from Preeminent dumb guy filmmaker, Joe Carnahan, is actually not as bad as I thought it would be. It is exactly as dumb, annoyingly macho and poorly paced as I thought it might be, but I’d be lying to say that I didn’t enjoy myself a little bit while watching it. My one major complaint that I can levy against it is that there is way too much talking in a film that should be 90% action.…

    ★★★★

    Rewatching this for the first time in well over ten years cements Shane Black as the ultimate king of the buddy cop film.

    Hooptober 4/36


    Carrie has to have been one of my major blindspots. It’s one of most famous horror films of the 70s and one of DePalma’s most well known. Thanks to Hooptober I had no excuse to not watch my blu ray that has been collecting dust since I got it. Now I must say, this movie is great, but I think great for one particular reason. The Prom scene is just fucking perfect in every way. The way it opens,…

    The Man Who Wasn't There

    ★★★★½

    Such a brilliant example of everything that makes the Coen Bros. great as well as being one of the very best noirs made this side of 1959. THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE accomplishes this with its outstanding technical merit, from the brilliant lighting and cinematography of Roger Deakins, a damn near perfect cast and a script as sharp as ever written by the Coens. This is a classic styled noir, leaning heavily into the tropes of the genre, but this…
