    “How do you know he’s a king?“


    “He hasn’t got shit all over him.”

    Can’t overstate the effect this movie has had on my sense of humor throughout my life. Even as my tastes change, this remains a constant source of laughter for me. We even named my childhood dog Zoot :)

    The same charisma and style as the first one but with +1 Al Pacino. Morally I cannot give this anything less than 5 stars.

    man i wish girls were real

    It's usually hard for me to keep my attention on a movie this long but this one did it for me. Beautifully designed, callbacks to the original but not in a cheesy way, really creative dichotomy between the cold digital world and the warm humanity (or... Replicanity?) within it. The original felt like an unfinished story, whether purposeful or not, but this one feels complete.

    A heartwarming family comedy about an uncle and nephew who get more than they bargained for on a not-so-relaxing beach vacation.

  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    there’s no way for me to rate this under a 5. lighting is gorgeous, soundtrack is gorgeous, jessica harper is gorgeous, overwhelmingly female cast is gorgeous,

    this somehow feels like a recurring nightmare even though you’re watching it for the first time
