First Blood

Up until now I’d never acknowledged anything about the Rambo franchise for more than two seconds or perceived him as anything other than the camo-clad machine gun cartoon character of pop culture.

This movie was incredible.

It truly is, and still very relevant today, especially in the way that the whole police department is comprised itself of wannabe Rambos, lacking the real experience to call themselves one but trying to make up for it with antagonism and abusive behavior anyway. The whole point is that no normal man should ever want to be Rambo. Not even Rambo wants to be Rambo.

I wrote a whole paper earlier this year about how First Blood was basically the canary in the coal mine of militant toxic masculinity in the wake of Vietnam, but also about how its sequel was Hollywood making a zombie out of that canary to play in the rubble of ruined male fantasies, because lord knows America refuses to learn literally any lessons from eruptions of masculine violence in its culture and politics. Rambo: First Blood Part II is definitely the camo-clad machine gun cartoon character of your preconceived notion, by comparison.

...holy shit.

The Lego Batman Movie

A worthy follow-up to 2014's The Lego Movie, and done by one of the directors of Robot Chicken, no less.

Apparently The Adventures of American Rabbit.

Well I always like the U.S. flag (painting) covered all over the ordinary Robert Rabbit into an American kawaii bunny. (And no, he doesn't look like Donald Trump.)

My favorite thing was how it escalated one side at a time.  The police are shitheads, but nobody is a cartoon character.

OT: Pulp Fiction

Tarantino movies make me feel good.

The Beautiful Troublemaker

Another great four-hour film that earns its runtime. It's beautifully filmed and acted, and it has a lot of interesting things to say about art, the creative process, gender roles, mortality, the queasy relationships between artists and "muses"...I'm glad I got to see it on a big screen. (Thank god for intermissions, though.)

While eating the worst fish cakes I've prepared yet, I rewatched Wreck-it Ralph; definitely my favourite of Disney's CG movies, and I'm glad I've got the art book.

Hamlet (Branagh version)

Some absolutely unbelievable performances (especially from the... flamboyant lead man himself) in a more-than-worthy Shakespeare adaptation. Considering how quickly the characters speak, it shocked me that it would clock in at over 4 hours, which is probably some sort of new record for me, but yeeeeah it's a word-for-word screenplay so lol. Other than the stunning sets and cinematography, I think the thing that stuck out the most was how stacked the cast was, with even minor roles being filled in by names like Charlton Heston, Billy Crystal, and Robin Williams.

The Shape of Water

Absolutely loved it. I loved the story, the characters, the effects, the production design, everything about it. Nobody does it like Guillermo.
