    A fun watch with beautiful shots of the Tetons and sweeping, elegant music—but it would have benefitted from being a half hour shorter with a more explosive finale.

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★★

    I had a LEGO set to build and the date was May 5th, so there was only one logical thing to watch. Confessedly, this is not the right kind of movie to half-watch. Anakin's poor writing really irked me this go, but I think that's because I wasn't really letting myself get fully invested in watching it. When you give yourself fully to any prequel movie, it gives you a lot more in return.

    Also… I'm sorry, but… there is no way *that* would've killed Mace Windu. I will stand by that until the day I die—or, at least, until Samuel L. Jackson retires from acting.

    Christopher Nolan definitely watched the final third of The Prisoner of Azkaban then said “hold my beer.”

    ★★★★★

    This movie and I have a loooong history—it played a huge part in freshman Will’s coming out to his parents. Six-ish years later, it’s still one of the most tender and realistic portrayals of gayness I’ve seen on screen… except no one bottoms on the impromptu.

  • While the City Sleeps

    ★★★★

    Stacked cast, lotsa horny action, Vincent Price playing a wormy noodle guy, social commentary, and Dana Andrews—all-in-all a very fun time.

    Forgot to log this lil' lovely gothic romp. It really ramped up toward the end and surprised me, ending things on a super satisfying note. Fun sets, visuals, history lessons (those silly Dutch colonists!), and costumes all throughout—though I will admit that I had wanted more spookiness than things like, uh…vague(?) incest.

    It won't be a go-to Price movie for me, but I look forward to revisiting it again since I own it!

  • Batman: Bad Blood

    Batman: Bad Blood

    ★★★½

    It seems like this movie isn't very well-liked, which just goes to show that a Letterboxd average isn't the end all be all! I had a fun time watching it and there was some *really* good action throughout. Plus, I even learned that I've got a big ol' crush on Dick Grayson which is anything but surprising. Woof.

  • Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

    ★★★★

    Kickass score, TRAGEDY (Batman is SO GODDAMN SAD), gothic Gotham, Mark Hamill’s Joker (only noting here because it was exceptionally refreshing after watching Batman Ninja…), and an original female character who was super intriguing (as far as these older animated Batman flicks go). I can’t believe Andrea Beaumont wasn’t brought back again in Batman media until just this past year.

    All-in-all, a very fun (sad) time. 🦇

    Naturally, after I watched this the sun went away outside and it began snowing and now I am extraordinarily depressed. Here is a list of brands that test on animals. Stop buying their shit.

    ★★★★½

    I am late to the game on this one, but man oh man is it a doozy. As someone with healthy hearing, I cannot begin to fathom how much this movie means to the deaf community. Thank you to Riz, Paul Raci, Chelsea Lee, and the entire Sound of Metal crew. I am really hoping this becomes a new standard of inclusivity and craft.

    In the meantime, Riz… if you see this… you're cute. 🥺👉👈

    Definitely had some badass moments but there were… transformers¿ Oof.
