  2. Favorite films of 2017

    for those who care https://letterboxd.com/justinhanvey/list/favorite-films-of-2017/
  3. Mother! (Darren Aronofsky)

  4. The Florida Project

    this is one of the most moving and devastating films i've seen since Fruitvale Station. Definitely a must see. Review
  5. Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Spoilery review. The spoilery section is clearly marked so if you wanna read up to that point cool
  6. Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Well it IS the villain saying it, Snoke
  7. Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    New trailer
  8. Blade Runner 2

    It's interesting that the more I think past the beautiful cinematography and excellent directing and good acting to the story itself, the less I like this movie. I've even knocked down half a star at Letterboxd already.
  9. Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    According to a Slashfilm podcast some people have been able to see the film early and have given good reviews of it, saying it is different and even somewhat divisive for Star Wars fans. I'm excited again
  10. The Red Turtle

    Remains my most favorite film of 2016
  11. True Detective

    Season 3 to star Mahershala Ali, set in the Ozarks following an investigation into a murder that spans over three timelines, with Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin, Green Room) directing and Nick Pizzalato taking on sole writing credits. http://ew.com/tv/2017/08/31/true-detective-season-3-2/amp/ Considering this is an anthology show and supposedly exploring different detective genres, I'd love one season set in a British village with a Miss Marple or Poirot like detective
  12. Star Trek: Discovery

    Interesting video, makes some good points and now I'm interested in what this Nicholas Meyer project is.
  13. The Dark Tower

    Yeah, theyre bad. I'm waiting for dvd.
  14. Detroit

    Some of y'all appreciated Angelica Jade's review of The Beguiled. Well I liked her review of Detroit a lot. http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/amp/detroit-2017
  15. Dunkirk

    Thoughts from people who liked this movie on the recent criticisms of whitewashing since there was at least one large Indian regiment at Dunkirk that is not featured in the film, as well as I guess in order to give his soldiers a feeling of facelessness and uniformity all his cardboard cutouts were white soldiers. It's a valid criticism, but I wonder too if it would have taken away from the more artistic nature of what Nolan was trying to do...which it seems to me this movie is less about the historical battle of Dunkirk and more about using that as a backdrop for a meditation on the hellishness, brokenness, and facelessness of war.
