    I've actively avoided engaging with so much of the media around George Floyd's death because I find it exhausting and cyclical in a way I can't handle. There's nothing I could read that would give me hope that we won't be doing this again a year from now, there's nothing I could write or watch that wouldn't just feel so familiar and kick in the sense of hopelessness and cynicism that comes around every few months when the world needs…

    when they say "money can't buy happiness" it's meant in a very direct and temporary sense, though it's crucially wrong in that money can unlock security and comfort in ways that can make you happy. but it can't buy freedom.

    wealth is nothing more than a mound of dirt. and from atop that mound you can see so much more than you could from the floor. but you can't stand on top of the mound without it slowly eroding below…

    crowd was dead silent for the entire film– except for when stephen mckinley henderson was on screen. everybody lost their damn minds. just absolutely constant screaming. throwing shit at the screen, taking flash photos. whole theater on beatlemania mode. large and loud boos the second he was off-screen, i couldn't even hear the dialogue. heard sniffling in the audience when stephen mckinley henderson's character offered his resignation, saw a father and son embracing in joy when oscar isaac turned it…

    When's the last time we got an unabashedly-adult movie that was this GOOFY? Just fucking batty, with the whimsical rubber energy of a children's movie? The John Williams score is carrying a lot of that tone but Jack Nicholson's performance is just... flawless here. Man's rolling around like Vincent D'Onofrio in Men in Black one second and Paul Giamatti in Big Fat Liar the next, then dropping lines about how he "loves a little pussy after lunch." Wiki page for…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    Too dumb to understand this. Said as much out loud when the movie ended and my friends confidently explained the synopsis, and I literally did not pick up on any of it. Felt like I was listening to freeform jazz only to have the lights come on and see everybody crying. It sure felt like a nice movie though! Everyone’s just bringing their A game here. Buckley is such a talent, and Toni Collette is one of the funniest actors we…

    games were sooooo weird in medieval times. probably ‘cause they hadn’t invented fun yet. “hey man you give me a thing and i’ll give you the same thing in a year” that’s not a game. that’s just borrowing. games have a pac-man in them
