Black Mirror: San Junipero

Watched because it gets referenced a lot in pop culture. Decent, but I didn’t like it as much as the similar (to me) episode with the mortal kombat fighting, which had a lot of similar themes.

Force Majure (original)

I don’t know if I liked this or not.

Downfall (Der Untergang, 2004)

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

Was excited for this, but it was sort of all over the place.


Audio-heavy, with Tilda Swinton. Watched with N, really liked it. Many Great scenes. Some later parts were borderline, almost gave up on it, but held it together, and I liked it.

Point Break (1991)

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Probably best film i’ve seen this year.

Parallel Mothers (Madres Paralelas)

Pretty great!


Licorice Pizza

Life in the Freezer (TV)

The Batman (2022)

Severance, Season One (TV)

Started well, has some great twists, and the premise works well. But very little gets resolved, feels like a setup for a long series.

The Host

Wrath of Man

Generic action, entertaining.

The Eight Hundred

Melodramatic Chinese WW2 war film set in a building in Shanghai right next to the international quarter. High budget, bloody.

Police Story

Light and funny, lots of physical comedy.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022)

The “Nick Cage playing Nick Cage” film. Not as good as hoped.

Strangers on a Train (1951)

Not as tight and good as some Hitchcock, but pretty memorable.

The Gray Man (2022)

Ryan Reynolds, generic action film. Large budget, but didn’t feel very glamorous. Silly, but also sort of trying too hard.

For All Mankind (TV, 2022 Season)

Big budget, Apple TV, speculative fiction slash alternate history. Decent mainstream TV, mostly character driven.

The Wind Rises (2013)
