    2. Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993)
    3. Eight Hours of Terror (1957)
    4. Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro (1979)
    5. Sense and Sensibility (1995)
    6. 127 Hours (2010)
    7. A Better Tomorrow (1986)
    8. Paris Is Burning (1990)
    9. City on Fire (1987)
    10. A Man for All Seasons (1966)

    I keep putting 127 Hours off for over 8 years because just the thought of seeing that ending on screen already made me queasy, but I also was not warned about a long scene of Franco taking off his contact lenses in extreme close-ups! So many intimate sensation of body horror captured on screen. Good movie though. 7.5/10

    Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) - "Ted would be shaking in his boots. I'm at least just trembling like a leaf." A ripping yarn, delightful in its engrossingly ludicrous plotting (never thought Woody Allen would do a light-hearted mystery pretty well) and some deliciously bone-dry banter, all the funnier for it being so dense and casually dropped at will ("Try giving her the present?"). Biggest drawback is I'm usually neutral on Allen delivering his own neuroses in dialogue, and here with some legitimate suspense set-pieces and slightly higher-stake situations, he can turn a bit grating in this context. His chemistry with Diane Keaton, however, remains great even after over 10 years of absence, and Keaton herself is note-perfect sublime throughout. 8/10

    1. Eighth Grade (2018, Bo Burnham)
    2. Jane Eyre (2006, Susanna White)
    3. Lonely Are the Brave (1962, David Miller)
    4. Annihilation (2018, Alex Garland)
    5. Waitress (2007, Adrienne Shelly)

    Jane Eyre is listed as a mini-series but I feel it's more like a movie since it's less than 4 hours long. A movie split in 4 parts.

    Oh that horse in the Miller film. Was kind of hating it there for a while.

    I loved Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993), although I much preferred Alda's character, who was way more interesting and likable.
