    The Commitments

    Watched this in a film studies class alongside movies like Chinatown and the Maltese Falcon for no discernible reason other than our teacher was an Irish guy who really liked it. No real discussion of the movie either, we just watched it and moved on to the next one.

  • The Beatles: Get Back

    The Beatles: Get Back

    ★★★★★

    Never was a Beatles Guy but this is undeniably fun to watch. After becoming the most famous musicians in history during the most turbulent years of the postwar era and getting front row seats to everything the '60s had to offer, man, they're just four guys in a room trying to have one more go at it before the frayed nerves and egos become too much to overcome. They know it won't last forever, they're reading newspaper articles forecasting their breakup, and they're kind of freaking out. But when one of them finds the right riff all that melts away and they're back in Hamburg.

    Dune

    "Frankly we're doing more spice than ever before. They're saying 'wow, we've never seen the spice flow like this' and it's a wonderful thing really. One of your fake reporters asked me if I'm worried about little Paul Atreides. I said who? The guy hasn't been seen for two years. He's washed up!"

    Maybe I'll understand this more if I visit Iowa.

    Thank You for Smoking

    We were so close. Elon Musk and Peter Thiel could have just kept producing movies like this.

  • The Knight Before Christmas

    The Knight Before Christmas

    ★★★★★

    Every room looks like a Pottery Barn show room, it snows in full sun, and truly not one line of dialogue really makes any sense. That being said it’s no more absurd than anything else about Christmas. Gotta give it 5 stars.

  • They Live

    They Live

    Really like that you can enjoy this on the Zizek level but also just enjoy watching two guy punch each other back and forth in an alley

  • From Beyond

    From Beyond

    You have to appreciate the scale of '80s movies like this. There's no world-ending stakes like there would be today. Yes, a mad scientist invents a machine that makes you extremely horny and turns him into a gooey brain sucking sex monster. But it's really only a problem for like six people.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    ★★★★½

    So many iconic moments. Nighy as Davy Jones yelling “What’s the matter? Afraid to get wet???” at a British soldier as they head into a sea goddess's fury-induced maelstrom is just one of them.

  • The Bling Ring

    The Bling Ring

    Every scene could’ve been the intro to a porno. The worst A24 movie
