    I love this movie. I watched it so many times growing up.

    The death of Jòhann Jòhannsson hurts. Dude made some of the best scores of the last decade.

    Laura is on. Such a good movie. Gene Tierney is a goddess.

    I just read about this today. The cause of death is still shrouded in mystery. I, personally, would've loved to have heard what he was cooking up for Blade Runner before Villeneuve went with Walfisch and Zimmer.

    I own all three of those blu-rays. I love them. Well, the first two. I think everyone exudes a ton of charm in The Philadelphia Story but it's plotting bugs me.

    That's fair. It's much more stage-like than the other two as far as plotting goes.

    Criterion's blu-ray of His Girl Friday might be one of my favourite releases of theirs in the last several years.

    oh yeah. I was watching that restoration of the 1931 version of The Front Page the other day and holy crap, that movie was ridiculously ahead of its time.

    Do I buy The Breakfast Club, Short Cuts and Young Mr. Lincoln or do I drop short cuts and go for Night of the Living Dead? I rarely get the Janus/Rialito titles since they're almost always readily available on FilmStruck.

    I'm doing it, even though I have a 4K version of it via iTunes.

    I got my copy of Criterion Night of the Living Dead yesterday. It comes in a cardboard case which is a little disappointing. However the artwork on the outside is really nice. There's no artwork on the inside at all, which is also a little disappointing. I guess it doesn't matter once the movie starts, though. Probably not going to watch it until after the Olympics, though.

    Kennedy Center has a showing of Koyaanisqatsi with a live score performed by the Philip Glass Ensemble and the Washington Chorus. Buying so hard.

    Hot take: Black Panther is the most substantive and personal Marvel film, with an equal amount of riveting action scenes and profound real-world implications.

    There a bunch of movies out now I need to see. Black Panther, Early Man, The Phantom Thread and I, Tonya and probably some others I'm forgetting.
