    Made my roommates watch this with me 😈 I have seen this movie probably about a dozen times and it still makes me laugh and smile every time. This is one of Jimmy Stewart’s best roles in my humble onion! IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE levels of heartwarming with THE PHILADELPHIA STORY levels of quick wit. Just great.

  • The Death of Stalin

    The Death of Stalin

    ★★★★½

    Had me in hysterics in some scenes. Great acting from Buscemi, Palin, and a bunch of other seasoned comedians. Shifted tone a lot, but it ultimately worked.

  • The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash

    The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash

    ★★★★

    I just finished reading Eric Idle’s autobiography so this was great timing. Haven’t seen this one in years; I forgot how many early SNL people and actual rockstars are in it. Apparently all the Beatles really liked the movie. Even Yoko, who is literally portrayed as Hitler, was a fan. That’s how you know it’s good stuff!

  • Eraserhead

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    I prefer to look at Lynch stuff without saying “I don’t get it” or trying to look for some clear answer that I may have missed the first time. It’s Lynch; there is no Answer™️. It makes sense that it doesn’t make sense. What it IS is a gorgeous haunting piece of work that unsettles you and draws you in at the same time. And there are some little guys running around.

  • Love & Mercy

    Love & Mercy

    ★★★½

    As both a Danohead and a Cusackhead, I enjoyed their respective performances. And as a Wilsonhead, I appreciate the effort they took to show just how much Brian was taken advantage of in his life. The movie itself was eh, and the characters were not necessarily fleshed out as much as they could be in a two hour movie, but I’ll take any excuse to listen to Pet Sounds.

  • Soul

    ★★★★½

    I’m always surprised at how much I enjoy Pixar movies after I watch them, and this one is no exception. Beautifully told story, visually and sonically. Great voice work from Foxx, Bassett, Rashad, and more. Even though it seems like every big budget animated movie nowadays is about a colorful blob with depression, I enjoyed the humanity and humility of this one. Ripe with “WAIT I KNOW THAT VOICE” moments (Graham Norton and Richard Ayoade LOL). Made me smile a lot!!

  • Ratatouille

    Ratatouille

    ★★★★
