Movies Watched, Apr. 2021
from “Smooth Talk” by Joyce Chopra

Lately I’ve been in the mood for comedies. With everything going on, who wouldn’t!

(2021) Mortal Kombat

  • Boring despite the hype, and the fighting wasn’t even that entertaining.

(1988) Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels

  • A sharp, wonderfully written comedy. Playful and unlike a lot of more recent comedies I seen lately.

(2019) Booksmart

  • It is what it is. Charming cast, though. Should’ve watched this in the airplane that one time, even without the R rated parts.

(1985) Smooth Talk

  • Great film with a surprising arc. Horrifying and crept into my dreams for the rest of the month after I’ve seen it.

(1986) Little Shop of Horrors

  • A classic! Wished Ellen Greene was in more things. Love her voice. Terrified at the prospect of the remake.

(2018) Minding the Gap

  • Finally watched this film, after so long! Beautiful film.

(2019) Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts

  • Didn’t mean to watch this but caught my housemates watching this while hanging out. A moving, vulnerable doc.

(1994) Reality Bites

  • A fun, weirdly timely again coming of age story. Winona and the cast is lovely. Some weirdly problematic things, as with most films from this time. Kind of a bummer since the resolution of the film encourages toxic relationships reminiscent of how Bushwick fuccbois treat people.
