I recently watched a Werner Herzog documentary, and then I watched another one right after. Lessons in Darkness (1992) is just shots of oil fields in Kuwait destroyed by the Gulf War presented without any historical context, and is visually horrifying and stunning. The last third of the movie is about firefighters trying to put out flaming oil shooting 100 feet into the air, and is unlike anything I've seen. 9/10



Bells from the Deep (1993) is about mysticism in Russia. There's a scene where people are crawling on a frozen lake, and you think they're praying and very serious, when in reality they're drunks from a local town that Herzog paid to crawl around on the lake. 6/10

The other plus is they're both an hour long.

I've been waiting for this movie for over a year. It was supposed to come out near Thanksgiving 2018 and was pushed to Feb 2019, then Oct 2019 and then it just flopped out a week ago. But now I see why it was delayed so long, they couldn't figure out how to end it and somehow in over a year they still couldn't write an ending. I appreciated that your expectations are defied for a while but then it just kinda falls apart.

It gave me everything Hereditary wanted to give. In the end Hereditary was just Toni Collete emoting her ass off surrounded by nonsense plot and lesser actors and horrific imagery. Midsommar was deeply unsettling but also told a story that was rooted in the basic human emotion of grief and jealousy and settling for bullshit so you won't be alone. Just...fuck. it was so good.
You did warn me...

God damn what a piece of shit.

You see those videos that try to show you all the the symbols and things you missed? What horse shit.

Midsommar can go die in a ditch.

I see some of you were recovering for days after watching it. Is everyone okay by now?

EDIT: This movie won't haunt me for days, but people loving it will haunt me for years!

"Maybe jumping off that cliff is their way. I mean, maybe they think retirement homes are barbaric..." WTF?!

Oh are those 2 giant bloody stones? Later, weirdos!

People are vanishing. "We'll figure it out. Anyway, you go this way, son, and you go this way, woman."

WHAAAT?!

I make fun of that horror movie I was in, but maybe it's fuckin' genius!

Midsommar was cool as hell. I liked all the trippy images and triangle-shaped buildings, I liked how they contrasted grieving in America - where she's by herself with a boyfriend who doesn't care about her pain - with the communal expression of pain you get in the group wailing scene (c'mon that scene was amazing). It went on a little long and the plot didn't really drive the movie for me as much as the visuals and the feeling of the movie, but the emotional experience of watching that movie was incredibly satisfying.

Also I finally saw Hustlers, which was barely a movie. Should've turned it off after Jlo danced to Criminal 10 minutes in, even if it was good nothing was going to top that scene.

I'm honestly surprised you bothered to finish it.
But, thank the Lord for JoJo Rabbit. I want that chubby kid to be my best friend TODAY

Fuck Parasite. Now that you read subtitles go watch The Farewell. I'm sure it's streaming.


I wanna say you'd like Honey Boy but it may have too much therapy for you

Knives Out. I like these kinds of movies so I enjoyed it. Hated Daniel Craig’s accent. It was jarring and really unnecessary.

Yeah, you nailed it. He actually needs help from a more competent narrator.

Finally saw Bridesmaids (which came out in the long forgotten year of 2011) last night. Not sure it lived up to the hype, I thought it was gonna get way weirder and more depraved from the way people talked about it and it was more of a classic romcom. Still loved it though. It's the best performance I've seen from Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and it felt genuine even if the moral was trite af. The poop scene was good. 8/10

Another movie I'm super late to, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). This was my least favorite of the original trilogy, although they're all basically the same movie. Didn't love Sean Connery in this one. Temple of Doom is the most racist, but I think I'd put it slightly above Raiders as jungle > desert (and it's not like the other two aren't racist). 7.4/10

Ooo and I watched the Irishman a couple weeks ago before quarantine, what a total waste of a day when I could've gone outside. Scorcese is definitely into the "make the movie extra long so the ending really hits you" thing. The ending definitely hit me, but also I didn't feel like it was worth watching at all. The CGI was better than I expected for the most part. 4/10.
