  • Holidate

    Holidate

    really not very good and lots of cringey hetero normative jokes and just general beliefs of the characters. also they seemingly abandoned the premise of the film almost immediately by telling her family it was all fake so I don't understand the point of any of it. but I laughed at one joke so whatever

  • Rebecca

  • Possessor

    Possessor

    ★★★★

    hope i don't get possessed by someone and forced to do an assassination. seems bad!

    falls into the trap of some indie horror where the story is kinda bare, but the sci-fi premise is pretty interesting and there's a lot to like about it. really great, weird visuals as well as some wild, unsettling practical effects. the score is also particularly good, really gets into your bones and sets the tone very well. lots of gore so be warned.

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    bizarre and funny and creepy and weird and mindbending. charlie kaufman at his best. i did not understand what was happening the first time i watched it but i still had a blast. when i knew what was going on finally the second watch was even better.
