    The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

    Being able to watch a movie on digital cable with commercials while sitting with your fully vaccinated parents is really something special, doesn’t much matter the movie

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    I realized I’ve never actually seen this in its entirety and feeling reenergized with the MCU because of Wandavision, I figured it was time to watch. A weaker Marvel entry but not as horrible as I thought it would be. I’m mostly obsessed with Nat and Clint, any chance to see more character development. The Bruce/Nat pairing didn’t work for me, it felt flimsy. And there were glimmers of Fraction’s Hawkeye in there, I think, which I of course like.

    Yes, I did watch this after reading the Vulture piece on the making of it.

    ★★★★

    It’s sweet, it’s a little funny, it’s raw and will rip your heart out. The chemistry between Mark Duplass and Ray Romano is genuinely touching.

    ★★★

    This was much goofier than I expected! And if it’s really a horror comedy, would’ve loved a little more comedy.

    A Christmas Story

    We’re keeping this on all day in the background as we bake and cook so by the end of Christmas I’ll confidently say I’ve finally seen this. It’s...fine. It’s kind of fun to see those iconic lines in context.

    I was so attached to this movie as a kid and watching it again, I still love it. It's corny, there's a goofy slapstick element to it, but its got heart and is so genuine in its storytelling. The world of this movie is so insular, its characters so wrapped up in their own ballroom dancing society, and I think if you introduced any other element of its present day into it, you'd lose the storybook magic of it.

    And you know, the dancing is great.

    Is it worth watching just to hear Betty White call Brendan Gleeson “officer fuckmeat”?

    Maybe.

    Pacific Rim

    I love this big, dumb robot movie so much

  • Twister

    Twister

    This movie has everything: rival storm chasing nerd gangs, baby Philip Seymour Hoffman, tornados that sound like banshees, Helen Hunt’s windblown hair.

    Also is there a Pecos Bill-shaped reason Bill Paxton’s character is named...Bill?
