Rewatched cape fear (the 90s one). Hadn't seen it in a while it's a fuckn ride. The story itself is pretty standard but from a filmmaking perspective all the shots and effects etc are really interesting like redoing the og stuff in the 90s. It's funny when people complain these days about nothing new being made just redoing ideas it's literally always been the case. The 70s was redoing the 40s, 80s the 50s, 90s the 60s (which was already redoing the 30s) and so on and on and on usually pretty close to 30 years

Still a great watch.

i just saw 'theres something about mary' for the first time and tbh i thought it was sick af

Love that movie! Saw it at a drive-in along with Ever After and a Looney Tunes short. That was a wild choice.

I dunno if they’d make it now, but I’m glad it exists.

Yeah that “no new ideas” shit really grinds my gears.   

Maltese Falcon was remade 3 times in like less than 10 years.   

Playwrights from Shakespeare’s era were all working/adapting similar pre-existing plays.

Just watched Faults (2014). Great movie with a small cast and tons of tension. Perfect for fans of cult shit.

Just saw Bullet Train tonight and have to say it was a fun fucking movie. Basically just an insane cartoon turned live action. Some cheesy humor throughout but its so over the top its just great all the way through

Check out Art of Self Defense.  I think it’s the same director.   Great black comedy

Finally got through "Tenet" the other night.

Visually very cool, but I felt like I couldn't hear/follow half the conversations and had no clue what was happening most of the time. Took a few articles to sort it all out.

Can see why it was both very hyped as the theater saver during COVID -- and also a theater dud.

Watched Paris, Texas for the first time in probably 5 years. It's truly a masterpiece.

I also watched the new Beavis And Butthead movie which was pretty hilarious. I would recommend it for anyone who's a fan.

“You ever had a whitehead on your eyeball, Mary??”

I think I’m due for a rewatch!

I also highly recommend the new Beavis And Butthead movie. The problem I have with sequels that happen so far apart from each other is the obvious "cash grab" feel they give off. This movie didn't have that. It was hilarious from start to finish, and it really felt fresh. I also loved the modern humor in it. I'm very excited for the new season.

Cosigning this.

Last good movie I saw was Cure. First Kiyoshi Kurosawa for me, had Pulse on a watchlist for years but never got around to it.

HBO Max just added Ex Machina and I forgot how much I loved that movie. Oscar Isaac's character is great.

Just watched the prequel to Predator, "Prey" on Hulu. First good Predator movie since the 80's. I give it a solid 8/10. Definitely worth the watch.

Been looking forward to this, and am glad to see it’s getting good reviews.  Gonna make some time to watch it this weekend

Not much dialogue and a lottttt of action. Just like it should be.
