There will never be a better movie villain than Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber

Special extended edition of Once Upon A Time In The West with an extra 15 minutes of Jack Elam trying to get that fly off his face

@Thomas I’ve said it before but self boosting is just punching the jukebox to get the party started

Tales of Terror (1962) 

The last segment, “The Case of M. Valdemar” sets a legit spooky mood before ending in predictable low-budget mid century horror movie fashion. But again, Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone sharing the screen is a treasure

my favorite part of baby driver is the montage of the baby learning to drive

I wonder if George Lucas had a “no re-releases of the un-fucked with original Star Wars trilogy” clause when he sold Lucasfilm to Disney, it’s the only thing I can think of to explain how there isn’t a ultra hi-def Blu-ray boxed set yet

Today I'd appreciate it if you CW your Supreme Court gossip, please consider that a bunch of very online people saying "what did you expect" and "OF COURSE it was going to be this bad" doesn't help anyone or change the world in any way

I do not approve of this chopped-and-screwed Cask of Amontillado remix but watching Peter Lorre and Vincent Price trying to out-ham one another is always a delight

It’s legit impressive how much runtime Corman gets in all of his movies from long shots of people just walking around and silently looking at stuff in a room

I wore my :hark: t-shirt to a rare IRL work session today and I got neither a single "that shirt rules!" (which I *did* get from multiple strangers last time I wore it) *nor* a "Huh, so what's with the shirt?" so I take that to mean my coworkers all either think I'm a giant dork or a giant weirdo

:unsurefry: did Roger Corman borrow this fantastic spooky old mansion set (complete with a cobweb-covered wedding cake) from a concurrent production of ‘Great Expectations’? (That would have been an extremely on-brand canny Corman move)

Opening voice-over: Vincent Price absolute GOAT

Shout out to every university Web Developer job listing that starts out with like half a paragraph of “responsible for building web applications” and then descends into a hellscape of “responsible for maintaining an intederminate number of Wordpress and Drupal and whatever other sites and also doing intetermjnate sysadmin and database administration and also providing primary support for all of the above”

My favorite part of every Mission: Impossible movie is right after the secret message self destructs, when Tom Cruise looks at the camera, makes a home alone face, and says “This mission is *impossible!*”

Mission: Impossible 2 (2000) 

This among the more ridiculous action movie finales I’ve ever watched, not in a bad way per se

Wait so they need to break into this ultra high security skyscraper undetected so the plan is to hover a helicopter directly above it for like 2 minutes in downtown Sydney

This is one of those movies that’s capably made and capably acted but somehow utterly uninteresting to me

I mean I guess you can’t really blame John Woo for all these long, loving, bordering-on-pornographic shots of Tom Cruise
