  • a [[list]].
  • I [[like]] them but I don't watch as many as I'd like as of late.
    • It's hard to make the time for them? In particular when there's so much stuff to do, and when there are so many other media fighting for our attention.
    • [[series]] might be taking over, but honestly you can watch movies as if they were series perfectly fine -- just watch them in 23 minutes or 40 minutes stints. I'm not a fundamentalist.

Some films I've liked (or at least watched) over the years, in no particular order.

(Probably best to assume there will be some spoiler alerts…)

[[Children of Men]]

Knives Out

About 2 hours long, but you wouldn't notice - just non-stop enjoyment. A modern spin on the murder mystery genre. Great ensemble performance, Daniel Craig remarkably enjoyable as a Southern US sleuth.


A kind of Shakespeare-cum-neo-noir-cum-high-school-drama. Rian Johnson's first film. A long time since I watched it, must rewatch after seeing Knives Out (Johnson's latest), I remember loving it at the time.

Garden of Words

A short and interesting anime about two strangers who meet in a park and forge a connection despite many barriers. They have a profound effect on each others' lives as they get to know each other.

Gentle and philosophical on life. It looks gorgeous, with some beautiful backdrop illustration. Makes you think about the nature of human connection.

[[Tron Legacy]]

Miller's Crossing


[[Pan's Labyrinth]]

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

The Matrix

Mad Max: Fury Road

Back to the Future

Raiders of the Lost Ark



You Were Never Really Here

Brutal film. A bit of a modern day Taxi Driver. Someone losing it in a bad world.

Joaquim Phoenix is superb.

It's amazingly directed. Really minimal but effective. The soundtrack by Jonny Greenwood is perfect for the film.

The plot is very grim. Maybe also a bit far fetched. But based on a book by Jonathon Ames. The film is impressive in the amount of stuff that it leaves out. It alludes to a lot of stuff that is probably much more fleshed out in the book.

[[Blade Runner]]

[[Adam Curtis stuff]]

[[The Speed Cubers]]

Worth all of the hype. A seminal cyberpunk fantasy with animation that still feels like it's from the future. There's no need for exposition because the story tells itself.


Great narrative -- clearly inspired movies like the wolf of wall street ans catch me if you can, among others.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Taxi Driver

Pineapple Express

Stupid 'comedy' movie, no depth involved

Office Space

Great movie, struck a bit close to home... definitely empathized with the main characters (aside from the hacking part).

American Psycho

A bit scary that Bateman has taste so similar to mine... except for the psychopathic killer thing. Love his interior decor! Can definitely see some examples of the type of person he will become (perhaps the misogyny and power tripping, but not the murder) in some people I know today, which is a bit frightening given that he's intended to portray a caricature..

nightcrawler - confirmed news is bad. very good character development

into the wild

inspirational and novel. he lives a noble life - and though his decisions are stubborn, he learns so much along the way. highly recommend; personal journeys are the best kind of journey.

silver linings playbook

  • frustrating. how true is this? is it typical for people to spend most of their time talking about other people? maybe this is an oversight of mine.

shutter Island

  • predictable and forgettable


simply stellar. dialogue is simplistic but sometimes this is fine + expected given the demographic. The emotions of the characters are complex enough.


Basically nonsensical- though maybe I'm not aware enough of the history.

feel good

excellent show. comedic realism. genuine same sex relationship. wish there were more but netflix business model bad.

Record of a living being

https://cinemasojourns.com/2020/03/29/akira-kurosawas-record-of-a-living-being/ source watch the film :: one of the first to directly address the fear of nuclear holocaust and the implications of the atom bomb. an introspective, cerebral work regarding japan after the bomb and moving forward, away from fallout. inspired by conversations with otuers regarding what may -- or may not be -- in store for us tomorrow, if tomorrow is in store at all.
