there's a Lot in the nightingale but there is one specific scene i had to make ed pause the film so i could leave the room for a bit i was so upset and like two years later still have very occasional nightmares about. that wasn't even a horror film 🙃

Show thread

there's a lot of discussion of that one scene in hereditary on my tl so i beg of you friends literally never watch the nightingale, the next film from the director of the babadook

we still have 11 films left bc we added 3 extra in to make it a couple challenge and we'll get round to as many as possible in october but overall i had a good time watching things i probably wouldn't have prioritized without this, so thanks @derek

september is over and my fell off a cliff over the final week bc of socialising and my birthday and vaccine stuff but i managed 22 of the films, only 1 of which was a dud, but at least a pretty spectacular dud. that's pretty good imo, how did everyone else do, what's the best thing you watched??

tonight's pick is
2️⃣3️⃣ (the second of) two movies you've never seen by two different directors selected for cannes 2022. we picked broker, which i'm expecting to smash my heart into bits tbh

Show thread

this afternoon we did my bonus free space: a movie you love sharing with people and for me that's waitress. it's a movie that both breaks my heart and makes me feel soft and tender. rip adrienne shelly 💔

Show thread

now we're doing 1️⃣9️⃣ a movie directed by a non-white non-male-identifying person - daughters of the dust. not far in so not many thoughts yet aside from it being refreshing to see a period piece that's not about white english people

Show thread

ed's off work this week for my birthday so we're gonna try catch up a little.
started today with 2️⃣7️⃣ a movie over 150 minutes long. this was the longest of our jane campion films, an angel at my table. it's made me much more interested in reading janet frame

Show thread

forgot to post at the time but last weekend we did also do
1️⃣5️⃣ a black-and-white horror movie, which was obv nosferatu. had a fun time, some of the wildest eyebrows i've seen in my life

Show thread

i have watched six films this weekend and not a single one was from my mff picks but i did get to show my best pal muriel's wedding

Show thread

how are we all doing with our my friends my buddies my pals? i'm barely over halfway but eds got all this week off work so maybe we'll catch up maybe we won't

continuing with
3️⃣ (the second half of) a thematic double-feature of your choice - the wages of fear. also meets a couple of other categories being 153 minutes, b&w pre 1970 and non english but dw dear l.p friends i chose different ones for those categories too, i may ignore structure but don't cheat the rules

Show thread

started with
2️⃣1️⃣ a movie from roger ebert's top ten from your year of birth - drugstore cowboy was my 1989 pick. wasn't blown away but liked it a bunch, cannot deal with how babby heather graham was !!

Show thread

Show thread

had a night off for some netflix garbage and the new pinocchio, coming back on a high note with ed's choice of bonus movie you love to show people - in the mood for love
he loves it, i've never seen it before. obsessed with every outfit and set already.

Show thread

this was meant for my main not movie account lmao but i'm still fat over here so be reet

Show thread

unhealthy fat people and fat people who reject any attempts at weight loss (regardless of the success rate) still shouldn't be treated like garbage and idk how to make non fat ppl understand this????

Show thread

it's very nice that thin people are coming round to the idea that being fat doesn't automatically mean having certain illnesses and that weight loss is unsuccessful more often than not but those things do not have to be true for people to not be fatphobic

another brian de palma tonight
9️⃣ a nic cage movie, we've gone with snake eyes. obsessed with nics suit and that he's basically the same age as me in this ???

Show thread

this evening for the we've gone with 2️⃣0️⃣ a movie from derek's "the hundred" list - blow out. babby travolta and then babby john lithgow doing some interesting accent work
