I haven’t seen all the movies he talked about, but I’d generally agree with his assessments for the ones I have seen.

That was a great reminder that I need to rewatch Close Encounters. I think I’ve only seen it once as an adult, and that was probably 20 years ago. That movie always really freaked me out as a kid, though.

Coherence is really good, and the only special effects are actors with identical twins

Are we cool with Patton now? Was his stepping away from Chappelle a believably heartfelt action?

The Hollywood Theatre here in Portland showed a 70mm print of Close Encounters a few years ago. It held up great, and my teenaged daughter loved the movie.

This is in direct contrast to us going to watch 2001. I love that movie, but I had apparently blocked just how long the psychedelic portion of the movie is towards the end. It felt like it was an hour long. Probably better with drugs.
