  1. Glad to see The Death of Stalin ranked high for August! That movie was wild. I don't know if you got to see Sorry To Bother You yet, but you definitely should.

    1. I watched The Death of Stalin twice, and it's so, so good. I wish it had a chance at an Oscar nom for Adapted Screenplay, but that category is loaded this year. Haven't seen Sorry to Bother You yet. Will do.

  2. GREAT work. First Reformed was such a gem. How cool would it be to see Schrader finally get nominated for an Oscar for that movie's screenplay. Also, Phantom Thread, on repeat, all day, every day.

    1. Thanks buddy! Phantom Thread is quickly becoming one of my all-time faves. What a film! I really hope Schrader gets nominated, especially if the film is shutout everywhere else.
