  1. I've been debating what to make next year's Film Project. After doing all the Disney films this year, watching all the Bond Films (plus the handful of unofficials) seems like a fun (and less time-consuming) idea.
  2. Clue, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Ferngully: The Last Rainforest
  3. Rick Morranis - Little Shop of Horrors, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Little Giants
  4. I honestly can't remember what I said if I'm being honest.
  5. The Three Caballeros: A marked improvement over Saludos Amigos!. It's still not the greatest film but has some good (yet trippy) visuals. The Beautician and the Beast: Still don't know if I liked it or not though Rodger and Hammerstein's Cinderella: Definitely one of the best adaptations and was definitely ahead of its time. I'm not usually a Rodger and Hammerstein fan but definitely has some of their better music! Crazy Rich Asians: I was in a rom-com mood so sure, what the hell. It's a nice film and I would watch Michelle Yeoh in anything. Make Mine Music: It's another package film. They do some interesting things here and there but, overall, it's definitely a case where the parts are better than the whole. One Night in Miami: Regina King is a phenomenal Director and her cast scores a touchdown! I know what I'm currently cheering for at the Oscars. Nosferatu: German Expressionism at it's finest! Lots of striking uses of shadow. As for the acting, it's Silent Film acting. Their expressions have to do the talking. Fun and Fancy Free: It's like someone at Disney said, "Hey, we have this Mickey and The Beanstalk film but we need to pad the runtime. Anyone got anything?" "Yeah, I got a cartoon about bears showing love through physical abuse!" "Perfect!" Films: 34
  6. Saludos Amigos: It's the first of Disney's Package Films. It's pretty average. Scoob!: It's okay, nothing special. Like, it's transparently yet another attempt to create a cinematic universe and, as a result, most of Mystery Inc feels like extras in their own film. Push: I like this film for the potential it held than for the film itself. The world is more interesting than the film itself but the stars still do a fairly decent job with what they got. Groundhog Day: One of my absolute favorite films. It's funny, well-directed, just great on so many levels! Billy Murray deserves all the praise but special praise goes to Andie MacDowell as well! I love the perfect run at the end! Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans: It's cute enough though the two animation styles never quite mesh. Still, the voice acting is more than enough to make it amusing. I guess your enjoyment comes down to how much you care for TTG. Mayhem: You really cringe seeing how fast the virus spreads in the film. Other than that, it's a fun film, very violent, and Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving are just perfection! Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: It's a classic for a reason. It's whimsical, the songs are great, full of imagination, and you can tell people are having fun. Happy Death Day: It's a fun take on the Groundhog Day formula. I always have fun with Time Loop films but just the way it works and also the twist during The Perfect Run are a big factor in why this is one of my favorite slashers. Clue: One of the all-time great comedies of all time! Also, one of the hand full of films that I can quote from memory. Madeline Khan is just all kinds of perfect in the film. Tim Curry is also pretty damn good! Films: 26
  7. Been bad with keeping up with things in this thread. Pinocchio: In a lot of ways, this is an improvement over Snow White. Some of the animation is really good (See Monstro), characters get personality, and the plot is only kind of a meandering trip. Wonder Woman: It's not a perfect film but definitely one of the best DC Comics films we've gotten. The No Man's Land sequence is one of the best action scenes in the last decade Anastasia: Once Upon a Time: It's a fucking time travel film where Anastasia is saved from death by time traveling to the 80s. It's somehow worse than it sounds. Wonder Woman 1984: It's not perfect but it's still a very fun film. Also, Cheetah is such a fun villain in the film and I really hope they use her in the sequel! Before Sunrise: The romantic in me loved the film. I liked how it's just these two people connecting over the course of a single night. Fantasia: The closest thing to experimental film that Disney gave us. Richly animated and the music choices are great to boot! Dumbo: First kind of, "It's Okay" Disney film so far. It's not bad but the plot is barely there. Also, it would be nice if it had been a little more racially sensitive but I've also seen much worse from Animation of this age. Booksmart: Still one of the smartest High-School sex comedies I have ever seen. Every part of the film is firing on all calendars! So many good performances also but Billie Lourde is just perfect in it at all points! Before Sunset: Julie Delpy is the rockstar here. So much of the film is good but then you just have the entire scene of her and Ethan Hawke in the car and it's just one of the best performances I've ever seen! I fucking love this film! Bambi: The music is good but the story is barely there and the animation has some moments where corners were cut. I can give or take it. Josie and the Pussycats: Lovingly self-aware, just bizarre enough, and it has literal living goddess Parker Posey! Just a pretty good film! Films: 17
  8. Like most men, I worship at the shrine of Parker Posey and she is amazing in this film!
  9. The Witches of Eastwick: Funny enough Supernatural Comedy. Just with the four leads we had, I feel like it should have been epic but still pretty entertaining! Oh, and that John Williams score! Pinocchio: Definitely a good follow-up to Snow White. Some of the animation is really good (See Monstro), characters get personality, and the plot is only kind of a meandering trip. Films: 6
  10. I, Tonya: Margot Robbie is going to get her Oscar eventually. Just the way that she captures Tonya Harding in the film is wonderful! Mank: It's Oscar Bait but at least somewhat interesting, especially any part with Amanda Seyfried. Bridget Jones's Diary: It's a yearly tradition to watch this during January. Renee Zellweger is pretty good in it. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Simple but beautiful. Also, to be commended for what it spawned. Films: 4
  11. Final count for 2020: I watched 300 films. This was helped along by the fact that I wasn't hanging out with friends on weekends and that I had the extra money for extra streaming services and the such. That said, I also watched like 70 something films in December alone. October helped it. I will also hopefully not hit 300 films next year but we'll see.
  12. Pretty Woman, Erin Brockovich, Eat, Pray, Love
  13. Spider-Man: Far From Home: I think I remember disliking it more but it holds up pretty well. Sister Act 2: Back in The Habit: I somehow didn't get to this until the last day of 2020. Wild. The Lion King 1 1/2: It's not a bad film, has a few moments where it kind of falters though. The Skeleton Twins: Kristen Wiig is going to win an Oscar by the end of the 20s. Good for her when it happens! The Wizard of Oz: One of my favorite films since I was young (what gay boy doesn't love it though). It's a classic for a reason. Films: 264 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 28
  14. An Extremely Goofy Movie: I don't like that pretty much all of Max's Character Development from the first movie got pushed back but, otherwise, I enjoyed it quite a bit, especially all the 70s music throughout. Cinderella III: A Twist In Time: Probably the best of the Disney Straight to Video features. It helps that everyone gets better characterization and there are actual stakes at least. Frankenstein: It's a classic for a reason. Kentucky Fried Movie: One of my favorite, "Hey, we got a bunch of sketches, let's release it as a film" films. Zinc Oxide and You is a freaking treasure! Monty Python and The Holy Grail: Absurd, cheap, and wonderful for it! Films: 259 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 28
  15. Kiki's Delivery Service vs Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs
  16. Kiki's Delivery Service: I never fail to be reminded how charming and beautiful the film is! The Cat Returns: It's cute. Not my favorite but good. Fantastic Four: Not my cup of tea. Basically, someone had a basic idea of the Fantastic Four and decided to make a body horror film instead. The Princess Bride: It's a classic for a reason. Films: 254 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 28
  17. Ant-Man and The Wasp: It's about in the low middle for me. There's some interesting stuff going on but it is, overall, working to bridge for Endgame. Captain Marvel: Not as keen as I was on it back when I first saw it but it's still good enough. Avengers: Endgame: Still not the biggest fan but it has stuff that works and stuff that doesn't. Anastasia: It's so weird watching this on Disney+. Space Mutiny: Potentially the best first episode for anyone looking to get into MST3K outside of the Host Segments taking place during the only season with real continuity. Films: 250 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 28
  18. Ma Rainey's Black Bottom: Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman are perfect in this and should, honestly, win every acting award possible! The film itself is a little stagy at times but when you have a play that is already basically perfect... Querelle: A kind of weird Erotic Drama from the 80s. I think I liked it. It's very gay which was nice. Films: 246 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 27
  19. Miracle on 34th Street: Utterly charming, never overly sentimental, and just fantastic! Klaus: Just a unbelievably beautiful movie, joyful, an utter delight, and just... I think it's basically perfect. The Muppet Christmas Carol: The way Michael Caine acts with The Muppets is truly fascinating. Great from the first song until the end! The Star Wars Holiday Special: Yup. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: One of my favorite Christmas Films. I love the idea of family coming together at Christmas against all odds. Also, it's funny and just heartwarming enough. Wonder Woman 1984: Try to go in without reading the discourse. I enjoyed it. It's not perfect but none of the actors are even remotely phoning in the performances. Soul: I'm gonna have to watch it again but this might, potentially, be my new favorite Disney*Pixar film! Films: 244 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 27
  20. Four Christmases: What a painful and deeply unpleasant film! A Christmas Movie Christmas: On one hand, it's not a bad film. It's pretty much parody but it gets really weird with the meta. Like, Maybe everyone is stuck in limbo weird. Holiday in Handcuffs: Gloriously insane! Sailor Moon S: The Movie: Not the best of the Sailor Moon movies but still not bad! The Christmas Set-up: Aka The Gay Lifetime Christmas Movie. I LOVED it. It was really cute and sincere. It was a little formulaic but still had some great moments! The Last Christmas Party: Meh. Gremlins: The gremlins can't be all bad if they took out Mrs. Deagle! Beauty and The Beast: The Enchanted Christmas: Paige O'Hara at the very least is still wonderful! Anna and the Apocalypse: It's a freaking Zombie Musical Christmas Film and it works on all the levels. Showgirls: It's me and I hadn't watched it yet this year so here we are! The Nightmare Before Christmas: Just a beautifully done film! The Princess Switch: It's relentlessly dumb but I had so much fun watching it that I didn't care! Office Christmas Party: Ehh. It was two bucks to rent. Not the worst R-Rated Christmas Comedy but far from the best. The Christmas Switch: Switched Again: The fact that they somehow made this even more bonkers than the original is just beautiful! Just gloriously insane and I love it! Black Christmas: Is it the original? No but it's still far from a bad film and kudos for being a horror film that subverts the final girl trope and is pretty badass at times. The supernatural... I could give or take. The Knight Before Christmas: I am developing real Netflix Christmas Movie Stockholm Syndrome! Very cute! The Night Before: I don't have family nearby at the holidays. I spend my time with chosen family instead so this has become a special film for me. Also it's funny and I will never not crush on Seth Rogen! Films: 238 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 26
  21. Santa Claus Conquers The Martians: Strange but often interesting. Santa Claus: Strange and bizarre Santa Mythology! The Christmas That Almost Wasn't: It's that rare film that got used on MST3K that actually isn't bad. Odd but not bad. Santa and The Ice Cream Bunny: Whoever made this was on all the drugs. Santa Claus: The Movie: Weird but fun. Definitely review fodder for the future. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York: Not as good as the first but still funny. A little more cartoonish in it's violence but there's at least some character growth since the first one for Kevin. Home Alone 4: Taking Back The House: It stinks. Santa's Slay: For me, still a Holiday Classic. It's really a fun film. Films: 221 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 26
  22. Elf: I can see why people like it but I still don't like it. Home Alone: I grew up with it so it's always going to hit that nostalgia button for me. Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July: So, all the Christmas Rankin and Bass characters team up. It's weird but can't quite recommend it. Red Lodge: It's a cute little queer Christmas movie. I enjoyed it. Films: 217 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 22
  23. 12 Disasters. Let me sum up the plot: The 12 Days of Christmas was a warning by the Mayans about 2012. Yeah. Really! A Bad Moms' Christmas: Not as good as the first one but still has some good laughs! Films: 213 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 22
  24. Happiest Season: Cute. I recommend it! How The Grinch Stole Christmas: It's not the worst but Choices! White Christmas: There are moments I liked it, there are moments that I was bored. Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas: Okay, nothing special. Christmas on the Square: A little stagy but not bad. Naughty and Nice: Basic Hallmark movie but not terrible. It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie: A little dated but it's really hard to go wrong with the Muppets! A Very Brady Christmas: Such a weird little piece of Bradydom. Home Alone: The Holiday Heist: Watched twice for a review. Holidate: Holy crap, this was cute! The cast is great, there's some humor, the couple had chemistry. I like me a good romcom! The Grinch Musical: It has some good moments but, overall, ehh. Films: 211 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 7 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 22
