  • On the Waterfront

    On the Waterfront

    ★★★★

    I think I was supposed to love this but I only liked it!!
    Expectations are a hell of a drug...

    That said... it's beautifully shot!
    Karl Malden crushes.
    Marlon Brando is HELLO, A MOVIE STAR!!
    And everyone knows I love sweet Eva Marie Saint.

    I think I will watch more classic films now and there's nothing you can do to stop me!!

    Ghibli Ghibli Ghibli.
    I like Studio Ghibli!
    This one?? PLEASANT AF. Gorgeous animation. Comfort food!!

    Some constructive musical criticism... a little stingy with the theme!
    Someone wrote a lovely theme. Use that theme!
    Putting in the sad music at the end??
    Why do this, when instead could use the theme!
    We want to party :)

  • Groundhog Day

    Groundhog Day

    ★★★★½

    It was Groundhog Day, and Groundhog Day was on, so I watched Groundhog Day!

    Still a great flick. Still crossing my fingers for a Ned Ryerson spin off

  • Guys And Dolls: Off The Record

    Guys And Dolls: Off The Record

    ★★★½

    That was fun!
    OKAY I guess I like musical theatre. BIG DEAL.
    Hello Peter Gallagher can really sing, did you know that??

    In my experience recording albums is kind of boring to watch but this was a real treat.

  • Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened...

    Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened...

    ★★★½

    Why are audiences so mean to thespian children??
    Is "13" by Jason Robert Brown kind of like "Merrily We Roll Along"?
    I am curious enough to ask but not curious enough to listen to the cast recordings. I am peripherally interested in musical theatre.

    Movie wise... yeah can talk about the movie please?? lol

    Some beautiful genuine moments captured here. And a poignant study of dreams and growing up.

  • Marley

    Marley

    ★★★★

    For fun, I have been referring to this film as "Marley & Me", but no!
    That's not what it is called.

    I loved it! Really well done film on one of the best to ever do it.
    All the live concert footage is so killing.

    For being Bob Marley, I still don't think he gets recognized as being one of the great songwriters. YOU go write "Is this Love", you know what I mean? Anyways thanks for reading hope you have a nice time :)

    My friend Cali recommended this to me and told me not to look it up first. THAT is the move, my friends.
    Don't even read this!!
    I spoil it now!!

    I want to give this 5 stars because that's fun. Like Pitchfork giving Fiona Apple a perfect 10 kind of fun. I don't agree with it, but it gets people talking.

    I wouldn't normally give this a 5 because... there are some shavings of theatre cheese in here that I…
