    Bad Times at the El Royale.

    1) not very Tarantino.
    2) its not accurate to say it is bad, but it is very silly and not good in parts. Theres a good movie in there somewhere though.

    Just had my mind blown by the revelation that the main character in Forbidden Planet is played by Leslie Nielsen.

    I knew he did a lot of serious roles earlier in his career, but I didn't realize he was movie like Forbidden Planet.

    I think putting together a full list for me is too anxiety inducing, since knowing myself I would be excessively scrolling for some weirdo cult movie I missed, but I think gunpoint 2019 decision would probably be Hagazussa. That is the first film in a long time that I rented and watched immediately again the next week after purchase.

    That's the way it should be, though. If the film is completed, and the paying public can see it (no matter where they're from), then that's the year it should be considered from. Because otherwise you get into a whole bunch of weird stuff with films that play one region but not another. Or how about films that play a film festival and never get distribution? There are a lot, and I don't think it's right to say they don't have a year of release, you know?

    I get that it's more in the line of considering when you're able to see a film, and I don't begrudge someone considering a film from the year it was released in their region, but websites and film communities are international, and it simply makes more sense to catalogue by year of public premiere.

    Here's my favorites of every year i've been alive. The first couple decades were (mostly) easy since I honestly haven't seen many movies from those years. Like, Platoon is only my choice for 1986 because it is literally the only movie from that year that i've seen. Later years are harder because most have at least three really good movies i've seen in them. Except 2013, weirdly, which was difficult because most of the movies I saw from that year are kinda crap.
    1983- Return of the Jedi
    1984- Ghostbusters
    1985- Clue
    1986- Platoon
    1987- Spaceballs
    1988- Die Hard
    1989- Ghostbusters II
    1990- Back to the Future Part III
    1991- Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    1992- Aladdin
    1993- Jurassic Park
    1994- The Shawshank Redemption
    1995- Die Hard With A Vengeance
    1996- Muppet Treasure Island
    1997- Starship Troopers
    1998- The Truman Show
    1999- The Matrix
    2000- O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    2001- Spirited Away
    2002- The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    2003- Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
    2004- Shaun of the Dead
    2005- March of the Penguins
    2006- V for Vendetta
    2007- Hot Fuzz
    2008- The Dark Knight
    2009- District 9
    2010- Toy Story 3
    2011- Drive
    2012- Dredd
    2013- Iron Man 3
    2014- Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    2015- Mad Max: Fury Road

    I definitely agree with this. The only exception I have is for personal annual best of lists. Like, Long Day’s Journey Into Night just was released on VOD and didn’t get any kind of theatrical release in my region, so for me, it’s a favourite from 2019. But talking historically, or in any bigger context than my silly, unimportant list, I go year of initial release.

    Just got back from Doctor Sleep

    Spoilery thoughts:
    I loved so much

    Rebecca Ferguson's entire show-stealing/star-making performance
    Flanagan expertly paying tribute to both King's original book and Kubrick's film in satisfying manners throughout (especially with every part of the final act), while maneuvering through the bad blood to find common ground in both their attempts at telling Danny's story (which gets an emotional end)
    Character-focused scenes - whether between Rebecca's cult and her, Danny and the new girl with the shining, or Danny and his own mind/recollections that he's desperately trying to suppress because he still can't cope with what happened in The Shining - that kept me captivated for a 2.5 hour long film, which...certainly ain't an easy task these days
    A horror film that's undoubtedly a great horror film, and a very unsettling one, despite being so long and mostly lacking blood and jumpscares? It's possible!
    Flanagan using the entire runtime to talk in some way about trauma: about how you can't find the answers at the bottom of a bottle, about how the aftermath of abuse can be just as fatal to bystanders, about how you can't truly escape your past without confronting it (even when that's the hardest thing in the world to do). And it wasn't always evident in only the hero's part of the story; sometimes the villain has her own passages and fears locked away deep and tight. Sometimes the worst you can do is lie to those beside you, saying things will be alright when you know that's questionable

    Non-spoilery thoughts:

    My gut tells me I'm being overly charitable to this thinking it's one of the best films I've seen all year and deserves to belong on my best-of lists. My heart tells me this is an extraordinary effort on so many levels that the few cons I can come up with are minuscule in comparison

    "Is this better than Stephen King's The Shining?" "Is this better than Stanley Kubrick's The Shining?" Both questions asked ad nauseam since production on this project began, let alone since release hype started with the first trailer. For my answer to both: I don't really know, and I don't really care. Because Doctor Sleep does a well enough job standing out and on its own two feet, walking the fine line between both

    Two things I do know: 1) I'm done doubting Mike Flanagan. One of the finer modern directors in the genre, I do know I'll be one of the first in a seat for whatever he makes next

    While we're at it, 2) the next project Rebecca Ferguson has a role in will immediately have my attention. Oh, it's Dune? Fuck yeah

    One of the problems with this is that festival showings aren't always final cut, so can be quite different from the finished theatrical release, especially if it showed almost a year before general wide release. I don't apply hard-and-fast rules, but figure it's my list, so long as I'm happy with it, I'm good.

    Just got back from Doctor Sleep

    Spoilery thoughts:
    I loved so much

    Rebecca Ferguson's entire show-stealing/star-making performance
    Flanagan expertly paying tribute to both King's original book and Kubrick's film in satisfying manners throughout (especially with every part of the final act), while maneuvering through the bad blood to find common ground in both their attempts at telling Danny's story (which gets an emotional end)
    Character-focused scenes - whether between Rebecca's cult and her, Danny and the new girl with the shining, or Danny and his own mind/recollections that he's desperately trying to suppress because he still can't cope with what happened in The Shining - that kept me captivated for a 2.5 hour long film, which...certainly ain't an easy task these days
    A horror film that's undoubtedly a great horror film, and a very unsettling one, despite being so long and mostly lacking blood and jumpscares? It's possible!
    Flanagan using the entire runtime to talk in some way about trauma: about how you can't find the answers at the bottom of a bottle, about how the aftermath of abuse can be just as fatal to bystanders, about how you can't truly escape your past without confronting it (even when that's the hardest thing in the world to do). And it wasn't always evident in only the hero's part of the story; sometimes the villain has her own passages and fears locked away deep and tight. Sometimes the worst you can do is lie to those beside you, saying things will be alright when you know that's questionable

    Non-spoilery thoughts:

    My gut tells me I'm being overly charitable to this thinking it's one of the best films I've seen all year and deserves to belong on my best-of lists. My heart tells me this is an extraordinary effort on so many levels that the few cons I can come up with are minuscule in comparison

    "Is this better than Stephen King's The Shining?" "Is this better than Stanley Kubrick's The Shining?" Both questions asked ad nauseam since production on this project began, let alone since release hype started with the first trailer. For my answer to both: I don't really know, and I don't really care. Because Doctor Sleep does a well enough job standing out and on its own two feet, walking the fine line between both

    Two things I do know: 1) I'm done doubting Mike Flanagan. One of the finer modern directors in the genre, I do know I'll be one of the first in a seat for whatever he makes next

    While we're at it, 2) the next project Rebecca Ferguson has a role in will immediately have my attention. Oh, it's Dune? Fuck yeah

    Give mike Flanagan the dark tower series
