    Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened...

    Made me care about the show. It was interesting to see the trajectory of people's lives. Their 2002 reunion was heartwarming and it's so weird to imagine it took place around 21 years after the og production. 21 — the age I was a few months ago. And even weirder to remember that that's almost how long it could take for Richard Linklater's version to be in cinema, that is ofc if it ever gets to that stage (casting bl*k* j*nn*r it's obviously not off to a good start)

    Hello, Dolly!

    ★★★

    It's so extravagant, at times unnecessarily so. Gene Kelly was like every dance scene and such is going to be ten minutes long or that is how it's going to feel like anyway.

    Metropolis is an ambitious masterpiece, made up of grand set designs, special effects and ideas (and just a hint of Plato's The Republic). For fucks sakes, its creativity and innovation bleeds into some of the intertitles, too. If Fritz Lang could achieve that monumental scale and scope back in 1927, one has to wonder what he would…

    "The windows are the eyes to the house"

    Ever wondered while watching a supernatural horror movie, how that whole tragic experience will shape the family, especially the kids, in the future.
    Or just how you carry the ghosts (read: traumas) of your childhood into adulthood?
