I really love Joaquin Phoenix but this letterboxd review of C'mon C'mon makes me absolutely definitely never want to watch it

Oh well it doesn't matter because LOTR is getting smacked. Why aren't the Tolkien nerds showing up??

Hmm. Do I vote for my actual preference or to support my prediction?...

Friggin love this movie. Cannot get over that it's a true story. Literally the dumbest thing anyone has ever done. Also, Barry Keoghan has to be one of the best doing it right now. He's going to have a ridiculous body of work years down the line

Hyped to watch American Animals again later! One of the most underrated and underseen movies from the last few years and I'm introducing it to my friend who's never seen it. hell yeah

@PalmeDork the tories and brexit have destroyed england so much that just saying the phrase "you know, i'm something of a kinophile myself" to the art hoe next to you in the theatre has the queen's goons from MI6 rappel down through holes in the ceiling and beat your ass!

About to see Yojimbo for the first time on the best cinema screen in London. Awoo 🙌

Also, one run of scenes that goes from a sex scene into their wedding into the introduction to Al Pacino's character is one of the best things I've seen at the cinema this year

I mean, Leto is a prick and I was biased going into it but he's genuinely appalling in it?? The writing of his character could be to blame a bit too but it really spoils a lot of the film. Gaga is outstanding, Adam Driver great, and there are excellent turns from Salma Hayek and Al Pacino. Overall I loved bits of it but some of the business drama is boring and you're waiting for the lead couple's scenes. Definitely worth watching though!

Just seen the Licorice Pizza trailer for the first time and yes yes yes please

Off to see House of Gucci. Hoping for much Gaga and minimal Leto

Shudder gave me another free month after I went to cancel the first one, lol

Man, I gotta catch some more of Bill Duke's films. Didn't even know he directed tbh

God damn, that is an *excellent* movie! Laurence Fishburne is just iconic. What presence. Story feels so big, like something built over hours but it gets through it fast, without losing anything. Also, looks amazing! Gorgeous bluray transfer. Huge recommendation from me

The bluray I've rented is a criterion collection one but we don't have that here?? Did they randomly release some stuff without region codes?

Gonna watch Deep Cover. Sounds very cool and Laurence Fishburne is in it. Hopefully this movie says ACAB

Struggling with my top ten of the year but also really want House of Gucci to be up there. and Spider-Man
