I know, I know, it's not an actual basement you're dwelling in. We've been over that.

I live on the second floor, thank you very much. Nothing like Batty at all.

still trying to get all possible Oscar nominated films in the bag before the announcement this Tuesday. I saw two more in the last week and will be gleefully seeing Phantom Thread tonight


Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri

I've seen a ton of praise for this both here and elsewhere and i have to say....this one really floored me. What a perfect mixture of classic Greek and Shakespearean tragedy mixed with modern day existentialism. I was not expecting this to turn into what it did and can't even explain that without giving away a major plot turn (not twist)

By far the movie of the year and easily one of the best of the last decade


The Post

out of all the Oscar fodder this last year this was by far the lowest on my list, but as it turned out yesterday it worked perfect in our schedule.

the concessions area of the theater was fucking packed with moronic jarheads all there to see 12 Strong....i swear i have never seen so many oversized jack up pick up trucks in my life

i mention this because, while yes, 12 Strong is about some heroes who sacrificed in the early days of the Afghanistan conflict, The Post is about unrelenting patriotism and real heroes who risked in all in the name of the first amendment and the right for the public to know when the government is lying to them

I have to admit i really enjoyed this film....although it is very cookie cutter Spielberg...i was completely involved from the very beginning to the credits. There was obviously stellar acting (and the return of Bob and Dave from Mr Show!) and the film really moved quickly.

While not movie of the year....one i think everyone should see

finally watched Take Shelter.



Great acting, etc. Definitely one of the stronger movies I've seen in a while.
I think I pretty much have to watch everything Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain have played in.

The movie kinda hits a bit close to home, since I've got two cousins with schizophrenia.

He was good in Shape of Water, but I felt like they wrote him as a far more flat character than he could/should have been. Unambiguous evil is sooooooo boring.

I still want to see that movie, but yeah, I'm convinced Shannon can handle just about any part, no matter how challenging/subtle/complex. But I guess every actor has to make a living. He also played general Zod, after all...

I watched Groundhog Day for the first time last year. Never actually noticed it was Shannon... even though he pretty much looks like himself.
