    Really enjoyed this! The house is awesome; I wish we saw more of it. Stacked voice cast and cool animation. I would kiss the house !!!!

  • Young Frankenstein

    Young Frankenstein

    ★★★★½

    One of the more understated of Brooks’ parodies. There are laugh out loud parts and quiet chuckle parts and they’re all so good. I always forget Gene Hackman is in this for like five seconds. Always a pleasure to rewatch!

  • 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.

  • A Clockwork Orange

    issuing correction on a previous post of mine, regarding teenage miscreant Alex DeLarge. you do not, under any circumstances, "gotta hand it to him"

    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!!
