Did Stanley Kubrick film the moon landing and leave clues of the conspiracy sprinkled throughout The Shining? Is The Shining a deeper metaphor for the genocide of the Native Americans? Is it possible to retain credibility when your documentary features an interviewee’s kid interrupting the interview?
- The Wizard of Oz, 1939 - ★★★★ May 28, 2020Stunning, sweet, and whimsical.
- My Dinner with Andre, 1981 - ★★ May 27, 2020I feel like I missed something here. I appreciate the acting and the very fluid and natural dialogue. But ultimately I felt like it was a bit of a blowhard of a movie. Andre and Wally talk for two hours and it's reasonably engaging. But it feels like it circles profound topics without really diving into them.
- Gremlins, 1984 - ★★★½ May 27, 2020Super charming and fun. Gizmo is adorable and the escalation toward total chaos is really solid.
- It, 2017 - ★★★★½ May 26, 2020Watched on Monday May 25, 2020.
- Misery, 1990 - ★★★★ May 17, 2020Watched on Saturday May 16, 2020.
- Sometimes They Come Back, 1991 - ★★★ May 2, 2020Not as bad as I expected. The short story is one of my favorites from Night Shift and I think it translates well into a 90 minute movie. This is very much a product of its era but pretty solid.
- The Wizard of Oz, 1939 - ★★★★ May 28, 2020
