Cut, Licorice Pizza is so, so good. It's a hetero Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. I'm going to watch it a million times.

I have in on my IPTV. It's a bootleg. Video and sound are terrible. It'll clear up in time to Dolby Surround sound and 4K video. It usually takes about 2 weeks. I can wait.


Well worth the wait.

West Side Story (2021) is now my favorite Spielberg film, I'd argue it's at worst his fifth greatest achievement as a film director, it bests Wise's 1961 masterpiece, and it stands as one of the greatest depictions of movement ever captured on screen. This can only be a movie. Only movies can make this kind of magic, and Steven Spielberg is among a small handful of ever living directors who could've ever created something this kinetic and alive. Maybe the greatest cinematic flex in modern Hollywood history.


Would be interested to see your ranking of his movies. Critics are critics, but you gotta be an ahole to sit there during a Spielberg film and go, 'Yuck, populist..." Populism and interesting perspective shots are Stephen's skyhooks. E.T. had the juice to be re-released in Summer of 85 and it did well the 2nd time, too. And the VHS wasn't released until 88 and it cost 100 bucks and people bought it. The man has done something right in the industry. The recent documentary about his life is interesting as well, if you haven't seen it. Shows scenes in his movies that are biographical. EG: The scene in Close Encounters where the boy walks in and sees his father crying and starts shouting, "You crybaby!" and Terri Garr shouts, "Go away!" and slams the door? That's something that Stephen did as a child, it was a confused/emotional outburst at his father crying.
