    I’ve always thought it was weird that I saw Be Cool in a movie theater before I ever saw Get Shorty. At first, I didn’t know the two were related. I actually adore Be Cool, and think it’s a criminally underrated film. But I really fucking loved Get Shorty. This is one of the best crime comedies I’ve ever seen. It’s just so fucking witty. And an all star character acting cast. Delroy Linda, James Gandolfini, and Dennis Farina are…

    Who would’ve known that the tough and intimidating Rosa from Brooklyn Nine Nine has such a wonderful singing voice. Charming little film!

    Checked this out at my local IMAX theater. It really might be Christopher Nolan's masterpiece, at least from a technical standpoint. And it's also the one film that feels the least Nolan-like. The Hans Zimmer score is intense as hell. And the dogfight scenes with the spitfire planes are absolutely exhilarating and breathtaking. It's a gorgeous looking war film that ranks as one of the best contemporary WW2 films along with Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line.
