angelicmobster8: still from the cabinet of dr caligari, featuring conrad veidt with his eyes closed (conrad)
  1. Mommy Dead & Dearest (2017) Dir. by Erin Lee Carr
  2. Gigi (1958)
  3. Gigi (1949) Dir. by Jacqueline Audry
  4. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954) Except for the scene with the cannibals, this one holds up. Also, James Mason. Yes.

  1. Rhymes for Young Ghouls (2013) Canadian. Even though it was hard to watch at times, I think it could have been longer.
  2. Death Sentence (1974) Kind of fun d-movie thriller
  3. The Big Lift (1950)
  4. Moonlight (2016) hot damn
  5. Moana (2016)
  6. Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) Dir. by Anna Foerster. Not great, but best sequel so far.
  7. The Handmaiden (2016) hot damn, in a different way
  8. The Core (2003) SPOILERS They should have all died END OF SPOILERS
  9. Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them (2016)

  4. Love Is All You Need (2012) dir. by Susanne Bier
  5. Nowhere in Africa (2001) Dir. by Caroline Link
  6. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) I was surprised by how much I liked it, though come on Tim. One of those kids could have been Indian at least. Also, less focus on romance. I think Guillermo Del Toro could have done it better. When I read the book and saw the descriptions of the hollows, it just screamed Del Toro to me.

  8. The King of Marvin Gardens (1972) You know what, I liked it better than Five Easy Pieces

  14. Jane Eyre (2006 miniseries) Dir by Susanna White. I dunno, I'll include mini-series sometimes.
  15. Babette's Feast (1987) OMG. Babette went all the fuck out. Watch with Big Night.
  16. Fall Into Darkness (1996) Actually kind of fun
  17. A Star Is Born (1976) Fredric March, then James Mason, then Kris Kristofferson. OMG. Bradley Cooper still kind of creeps me out, so I dunno.

  19. Broadcast News (1987)
