now for a movie i actually saw: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, on opening night (i know you were wondering)

i really liked it, to the point where i'm almost considering a second trip to the theater for it - if you hated the slow buildup of Hateful 8, then maybe this is still not for you, but it's at least in a more expansive setting - and a really fuckin' well done one at that. Climax was pretty jaw-dropping even by Tarantino's standards, and I'll just leave it at that

Once Upon a Time is the best Tarantino film since Jackie Brown

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power: Season 3

The writing team raised the stakes, and delivered the show's strongest season yet, despite being only six episodes long. While the show's trademark silliness was still prevalent, the writers amped up the darkness and the emotion, and despite all the tonal differences throughout the season, it rarely felt jarring. The second half of the season in particular was strong. As much as I love both Adora and Catra and want them to be friends or more after all is said and done, it was AWESOME seeing the cuffs come off of their rivalry. Despite seemingly fully embracing her dark side and being past the point of no return after her actions in this season, I still have faith that Catra will one day be redeemed. She's too interesting and likeable and sympathetic a character to just devolve into yet another deranged villain hell-bent on destroying everything out of mere spite.

It will be interesting to see where the writers go next with the story, especially considering there does seem to be a grander game in play. And hopefully they give Geena Davis's Huntara something more to do next season.

Thumbs down

Haywire, a Soderbergh film starring MMA fighter Gina Carano



Years ago I turned this off five minutes in because it seemed like Carano couldn't even sit in a diner convincingly, but this time I stuck with it. It's enjoyable enough but really rote — very standard "mercenary/spy gets betrayed and now has to go after her organization before they catch her" stuff. Worth it to see Carano beating the everloving shit out of several big stars. Grade: B

A Ghost Story



I would love to believe this was every bit as profound as it clearly thought it was, but I just didn't connect with it or understand it at all. There's a nearly ten-minute, two-shot stretch where Rooney Mara silently eats most of a pie and Casey Affleck stands perfectly still in the corner. Again: I didn't get it. Grade: D

I know that we live in a society and all, but I'm actually curious about the Joker film. I hope it doesn't just end up being "the guy who made The Hangover trying his best to do a karaoke-cover version of Taxi Driver and King of Comedy, but with a licensed character for brand recognition." It looks like it could actually be good.

What there is no doubt about, however, is that Joking Phoenix has some big clown shoes to fill and an amazing performance to live up to.

Thumbs up

I kinda went movie-crazy this weekend so there's a bunch:

First Reformed:



This blew me away, and I already had high expectations going in. It's on Amazon, which billed it as a thriller, but I'd call it more a dark drama. It's sort of about how the church deals, or doesn't deal, with modern problems like environmental disasters, and how this grows to affect a reverend at a tiny church that's sort of administrated by one 'a them megachurches. A+

Good Time:



Robert Pattinson makes some really weird and cool role choices these days. He's excellent in this. This is basically a shaggy dog story, all in one day and night, about Pattinson trying to get his developmentally disabled brother out on bail after a bank robbery they both pull goes wrong. Crazy meandering shit happens. Ending had me pretty morose. A-

Baskin:



Turkish horror film about several policemen responding to a distress call in a weird part of town. Things quickly go very badly for them. I'd heard a lot of praise for this but didn't think it was all that special — maybe it just got a lot of attention because Turkish horror is pretty much nonexistent. Spends a lot of time with the cops just hanging around, but none of them felt particularly interesting. By the time shit went south I was just like, "Yeah, whatever, gut him." Also features an actor with a rare disease that makes him look like an elderly baby, and he's the main bad guy, and that just feels pretty exploitive of the poor dude. C-

The Killing of a Sacred Deer:



This one fucked me up pretty good and I'm gonna be thinking about it for a long time. By the same guy as Dogtooth, The Lobster, and The Favourite. Everyone in this talks and acts incredibly artificially, and although I kind of figured out a hypothesis for that choice by the end of it, it could be really off-putting if you're not willing to go with it. At the beginning the artifice makes the movie sort of goofy; by the end it's horrifying. A+

I Saw the Devil:



I don't know how to feel about this one. Korean thriller about a guy getting revenge on the psychopath who killed his fiancée. The revenge is elaborate and the tables turn several times. Real feeling of a depraved world throughout, with lots of gnarly violence. I feel like it was well-made but I just wasn't in the mood for it? B

The Baby (1973)

Glorious '70s family drama/exploitation/drive-in fare. Didn't see the ending coming. 8/10

Graduation Day (1981)

One of many Friday the 13th ripoffs, but has charm for days. Much better than I remember it being from my last watch 15+/- years ago. 7/10

IT: Chapter 2

Too long, pacing was kinda scatterbrained, the CGI monster effects often took you out of the moment too much and made some scenes that were supposed to be scary kinda cringe-y, and overall not as scary as Chapter 1. The acting was solid. Bill Hader as adult Richie stole the show with his superb comedic timing and he had about half of the movie's best moments. In fact, the movie was more funny than scary, which was a little unexpected (the first one had humor too but in this one the humor kinda overwhelmed everything). Not a bad movie but not particularly great either.
