|79 T7||Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) - Mar 21, 2018
"Concerned with the past and just how far Rodgers can physically fall and still be ok. Cap seems to be the wrong hero for a tech-oriented espionage thriller but that's the point - he mirrors the villain as an asset who lacks the historical context to question the mission or faction. They're like, both the Winter Soldier dude I'm telling you. It's all a conspiracy. The JFK bullet left an illuminati chemtrail that leads right to god damn Nick Fury as long as your calculation assumes a flat earth. "
|46 T2||The Polka King (2017) - Mar 14, 2018
"Is this a passion project about a guy who cons people into investing in his passion project? Jack Black: 1 Netflix: 0"
|94 T10||The Fly (1986) - Mar 14, 2018
"Classic werewolf tale rendered as a laboratory opera. It's the 80's so there's shades of AIDS and cocaine running through Brundlefly's transformation, where Goldblum turns in his finest performance under pounds of makeup to sell the tragedy. Certain peripheral effects are dated but the final mutation sequence is one for the ages, you cannot get that kind of visceral power from CGI. "
|43 T2||Thor: The Dark World (2013) - Mar 05, 2018
"They could have digitally erased all the actors and just left a magic hammer fighting a giant black crucifix for the space cancer and it would have been the same movie."
|86 T9||Glengarry Glen Ross (1992) - Mar 02, 2018
"Death of a Fuckin' Salesman"
|72 T6||Black Panther (2018) - Mar 02, 2018
"They finally did it. After seventeen movies with no diversity in the leads Marvel finally gave us a superhero who isn't witty. Down with witty! "
|92 T10||Black Narcissus (1947) - Feb 20, 2018
"A gorgeous film bristling with erotic friction between unstoppable forces and immovable objects, at turns pastoral and gothic and fantastic. It grabs you with these intense close-ups, reels you in with a no-fat story and invents the end of Vertigo as a finisher. "
|62 T4||Iron Man 3 (2013) - Feb 20, 2018
"See this one's cool because Tony has to do everything without the suits, he's gotta MacGyver his success using only wits and charm to show that it's his natural ingenui- oh hey the suits came back, thank god because I was getting worried there for a second"
|80 T7||Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) - Feb 20, 2018
"Heir apparent to Spinal Tap. Musical production goes the extra mile, the songwriting is pin-point accurate to every style from Roy Orbison to Bob Dylan and Reilly is game to match (that's actually him singing!) I totally buy into the canon of Dewey Cox. The rest of the movie is rife with hit-or-miss silliness but the surprisingly moving final scene excuses any lame puns or cheap gags that came before. "
|84 T8||Men in Black (1997) - Feb 09, 2018
"Captures the vibe of the comic book well enough, and I should know because I don't read comic books. Will Smith runs up the Guggenheim in 8 seconds flat, "Edgar your skin is hangin' off your bones", Rip Torn is totally not a stage name, maybe our whole universe is just a fuckin' marble bro. Vincent D scared the shit out of 8 year old me, he is completely insane in this. Lastly a shoutout to Forget Me Nots by Patrice Rushen, what a catchy tune. "
