    Good stuff! Sucks that I came so late to it.

    No need to make things even more difficult by counting these in too, but my list probably looks like:


    Certified Copy
    Black Swan
    Inception
    ...

    It's been a rumour for a while that Anya Taylor-Joy is going to be the new Furiosa, no?

    I'm for it.

    Finally got around to it the other day and yeah.. it's still the most excellent and sincerely wild thing (until maybe WB's own Fury Road came along seven years late).

    This was my #1 of last year, for the record.

    Feels especially worth saying since not only do I feel that it didn't get nearly enough attention, but now most people have more time to watch it.

    Well, I guess my definition of a retcon in the sense that every character motivation and piece of mythology they illustrated and had every intention of being true in the first one (especially if it...

    I thought this was actually solid, well-written and engaging?

    I originally stopped it about 25 minutes in, and thought "Alright, super cliche and nothing we haven't seen before, but screw it,...

    Oh I had a blast with this, and so much more.

    This whole stay-at-home period I was worried it had really begun to affect me emotionally since as someone who's usually a very easy (but unique)...

    This soooo bad ahaha..

    But in ideal quarantine fashion I watched it over video-chat with my friend who I watched the first one with, cracking jokes about it and perfectly predicting dialogue as it...

    Ah nice, thanks! I feel like I am in catch-up mode so I'll be sure to check that out. Equally curious and nervous to see what I said about those movies that long ago.

    Yeah this is a movie where the ambiguity of a "poetic" ending doesn't work because the cutaways to the above kitchen lose all mystery as to the mechanics of where things lead. Otherwise, I thought...

    Nah, this is good. It got me in too unique a headspace and made me laugh way too hard to say I wasn't moved by it.

    It feels slight and sloppy but also feels just as easily like something someone...

    What a bizarre but pleasant surprise.

    Oh! I did see the movie! And at the Canadian premiere, no less (lol).. So really I should've made the thread too, but I'll check on that now. I felt I was pretty mixed on the first and only came...

    Aw, thanks! I was very busy this year, including with movies (I think I got to about 70 from this year), but I wish I got to write about them more. Still gonna do a bunch of re-watches and catch-ups...

    This movie is the absolute best. Like, I can't remember the last time just thinking about a movie threatened to make me misty-eyed and short of breath.

    I really don't believe it's a movie that can be oversold, since I'm someone who basically loathes biopics (especially cradle-to-grave structured ones) and the idea of a film trying to adhere to true...

    T3 was (somehow) rated R though. The only PG-13 entries are Salvation and Genysis.

    But it totally feels like it's PG-13. Cut some language and violent shots and the same goes for Dark Fate.

    It isn't very good, but it's opening scene is a bit of an unnerving stunner for a variety of reasons. Some of the best-looking and most effective use of that technology I've seen to date.

    Extremely good but also often confounding, in ways both positively and otherwise.

    It feels very good to have a movie this "big" (budget, star, scope) feel so intimate, subtle and adult. But...
