Adult Swim's playing it again so I guess I'm watching it again. It's still good!
3.9 23:15 
Adult Swim is airing it (AGAIN, as they premiered it two days ago - I watched it then, too, but forgot to log it). I prefer it without commercials! But it's been perfect hotel room fare for me both times it's been on. I'm still sad this'll be it.

(Somehow I've had the Metalocalypse movie on my hard drive for almost a week and haven't watched it. I'll try to get it seen before IT makes its TV debut with commercials.)

Pretty matter-of-fact and almost exclusively focusing on 1982-1986, which - I mean, that's the Wham! time, that's fine - but like so many music documentaries I end up watching, even with an amazing amount of sound from the two principals this one just seemed to barely scratch the surface. I know Netflix only gave them 90 minutes, and I didn't give Netflix a dime so I can't be mad at anybody. I AM glad I had already read Andrew Ridgeley's book and could fill in some gaps on my own. I wonder if Shirlie has a book.

It was fine. (★★★)

Wow. Holy shit. Wow. (★★★★)
25.7 03:15 
Watched The Venture Bros.: Radiant is the Blood of the Baboon Heart

Watched Drop Dead Gorgeous

Started it at Kat's last week, finished it tonight. Didn't make me suddenly want Netflix
3.5 12:32 
Wow, Delta's in-flight entertainment system sucks ass - out at least the ghost constantly operating my console

Plane film! I did fall asleep this time
28.4 12:02 
Kris' pick - some of it holds up (I am being kind)
14.4 04:38 
Kris demanded I finally sit through it, so I done did. What can I tell ya? I wasn't seduced by "improv Will Ferrell" then and I'm still not now.
13.4 00:18 
Plane film! It did not put me to sleep!
12.4 20:18 
Plane film! Just as tragic as I'd figured it'd be. (★★½)
3.3 04:57 
Acquired this for a friend and figured I needed to watch it too. It was good! It did NOT make me feel like I needed to watch "The Witches of Breastwick" again.
2.3 17:00 
A friend put it on as background - it was better than I thought it would be! I don't know why I'm surprised as I generally enjoy Julian Barratt stuff. I would enjoy watching it again when I'm actually paying attention and not simultaneously super buzzed off Hamm's
29.12 23:40 
Maybe not the best film to watch alone but definitely not a bad film to watch with a packed Parkway Theatre crowd primed by a Simon Husbands performance prior to the showing
27.12 03:58 
Roadshow 70mm edition, watched seven years ago tonight (★★★★½)
25.12 03:28 
It was on again so I watched it again. Way too much crammed in there but that's probably exactly what they were going for. Just as weirdly entertaining even tho I knew what was going to happen this time. Still wish Letterboxd correctly listed it under "The Fireplace." (★★)
19.12 16:25 
Managed to evade this one until now. Good golly, this plot had more holes than a cheesecloth and left me with so many unanswered questions I probably didn't want answered anyway. I'm sure the sequels clear everything up but I will be nowhere near ANY of them
12.12 02:50 
Truly, they were..... an Adult Swim Yule Log (★★)
27.11 03:14 
Distressing lack of Pharrell Williams, but it's nice to feel mostly caught up (I will probably not seek out the "mini-movies")
26.11 05:06 
2 was better
25.11 06:59 
Wow, I've learned so much about British succession
25.11 04:45 

(features "Happy (from Despicable Me 2)")

25.11 03:01 
Now it's truly a holiday weekend. I finally watched this thing!
8.11 02:32 
Well....I'm glad I stole it (★★)
14.10 07:15 
Hoo boy (★½)
13.7.22 04:50 
Today I was reminded - repeatedly - that I don't watch "Bob's Burgers" for the musical numbers. (★★)
7.7.22 23:33 
Watched my Criterion Blu-ray with the (Mann, Caan) commentary track on for the first time. RIP Jimmy.
23.4.22 05:48 
What they had was great, but as a superfan from twenty years ago the gaps the remained were really obvious. Still, I'm amazed at what they DID have.
22.3.22 07:14 
From YouTube, this film definitely did not cure my insomnia.
12.1.22 00:08 
@tapemachines I only logged 22 films and my most viewed actor was Jason Schwartzmann because he was also in the Sparks documentary
31.12.21 01:29 
Wonderful, charming, delightful, FUNNY. What I want to be if I ever grow up. Jo Firestone is a national treasure.

But also: Why does Peacock fill their ad breaks with ads to watch Peacock. I'm obviously ALREADY WATCHING Peacock, professors...

All gone :(
23.12.21 05:03 
pew pew pew

Dumb but fun (but also dumb) (very dumb)

26.11.21 02:11 
Finally saw this on recommendation from friends - really interesting yet really depressing overview of a fascinating, troubled life
10.11.21 03:39 
I'm not a super duper Andersonophile but I had friends who were pretty excited about this so I went in for a $5 Tuesday showing knowing nothing going in. I liked it fine! First story in the anthology was the strongest, I thought - second one was the weakest, I thought - third story was KINDA strong, I thought. I think I need to see it again with the ability to pause it a lot to stare longer at the interstitial graphics. I liked the animated part! There, that's good and nebulous.
21.10.21 00:11 
I....... have some opinions. (streamed from the 'cock) (★★)
8.9.21 08:15 
Going in, I knew two MAYBE three things about this film:
1. Peter Falk
2. One of Allison's favourite movies
3. Nick Cave ???

This was one of those films I never would have seen on my own so I'm glad I have friends who get me out to stuff like this. I'm told I can skip the Nic Cage version but I'm now strangely curious?

11.6.21 00:14 
Great doc - 50 years somehow compressed into 2.5 hours. Of course, I wanted more. Maybe two too many superfluous "celebrities" (see if you can figure out who I'm referring to!) (★★★★½)

Attended an honest to God birthday party last night and this was her choice for us to sit through. It was a good movie to drink beer to... thus, a perfect choice. Turning on the captioning definitely made it much better because sometimes you're not sure if the music you're hearing is dramatic, tense or mysterious. I really have no idea exactly how little plot I experienced nor why Amorous Boy and his Boy Family had no names. Was this the last thing Angela Lansbury had to do for the money before "Murder, She Wrote?" So many questions, so few answers. Spectacular special effects for 1984 but if I'd seen this when I was 13, I would surely have had some nightmares...and then been very disappointed I didn't see any actual R-rated stuff I would have HOPED to have seen at 13. Anyway, good birthday party. I may be ready to be social again after all.

THE CLAW (2021) - Hard to believe it took eight years from my Kickstarter pledge for this thing to finally get finished and edited and make a festival debut, but it's still sweet to see my name in the credits near the top of the thanks. I hope it becomes more available way sooner. Probably not for everybody but if you know who Baron von Raschke is - or even just who Jim Raschke is - or like pre-WWF wrestling, you would find something to enjoy. (★★★½)
20.3.21 04:04 
DePalma + Travolta + Lithgow + Franz + 1981 = how did I not know this movie existed before tonight? I mean....I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's GOOD...but we all gotta be completists in our own way. SO ANALOG! (★★)
14.3.21 01:26

Kick ass
28.2.21 03:56 
Watched Reservoir Dogs
15.2.21 09:41 
Get this - Criterion Blu-rays look FANTASTIC
13.2.21 06:47 
I knew it would depress the fuck out of me and I still watched it. Sigh.
