Title Directed by Episode Genre Julie's Verdict
The Act of Killing Joshua Oppenheimer, Christine Cynn, and Anonymous Episode 153 Documentary
After Porn Ends Bryce Wagoner Episode 150 Oh Boy Yeeeeeesh
Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer Nick Broomfield Documentary
All that Jazz Bob Fosse Episode 152 Musical Great. Julie relates Bob Fosse to Stanley Kubrick. Geniuses who used actors and performers like art supplies. Fosse specifically using actors and dancers as an extension of his own wants and needs as an artist and choreographer and creating movements and performances never seen before. Nobody moves like Ann Reinking.
Alien Ridley Scott Episode 148 Horror/Science Fiction A Good Movie. Julie was glad that the cat survived and was inspired by H.R. Giger's creep art.(The latter not true)
Almost Famous Cameron Crowe Episode 165 Music-oriented Not very good,guys. Cameron Crowe might not be very good.
American Swing Jon Hart & Matthew Kaufman Documentary
Annie Will Gluck Episode 157 Musical We are not emotionally prepared for this movie or Cameron Diaz's role in it.
Back to the Future Robert Zemeckis Episode 2 Comedy
The Bad Seed Mervyn LeRoy Episode 139 Horror/Thriller
A Band Called Death Mark Christopher Covino, Jeff Howlett Documentary
Batman Begins Christopher Nolan Episode 135 Action
Beauty is Embarrassing Neil Berkeley Documentary
Beetlejuice Tim Burton Episode 130 Comedy
Behind The Candelabra Steven Soderbergh Episode 117 Biopic
The Birdcage Mike Nichols Comedy
Big Business Jim Abrahams Episode 2 Comedy
The Big Chill Lawrence Kasdan Episode 183 Baby Boomer Entitlement Incarnate The Robert Frost ode to White People. A garbage movie. Glenn Close bakes and cries in the shower and her hair is nice. Jeff Goldblum is gross. William Hurt is impotent(Vietnam?) and he does cocaine and has an earring. The Motown soundtrack is patronizing because it becomes background noise to the white experience or is appropriated into this bland lifestyle of people whose coolness peaked when The Beatles and Bob Dylan peaked in the culture. The movie kills itself for a state of authenticity that was never authentic. Burn this movie/this baby boomer entitlement to the ground, start over, or give the millennials the keys.
Bill Cunningham: New York Richard Press Episode 21 Documentary
Blow Out Brian De Palma Suspense!!! John Travolta is a fabulous actor and Julie credits it to Scientology. Nancy Allen on the other hand is not. If Julie never saw her again she would be ok.
Blue Jasmine Woody Allen Episode 135 Comedy
Body Double A Weirdo Suspense/trash Julie would say she likes the movie, but the torture scene with the powerdrill is too upsetting. Not a fan of torture or women in pain. Julie thinks De Palma is a sick man, but she has a morbid but distant curiosity towards his films. The "citrus fruits" on him(two grapefruits) to cast Tippi Hedren's daughter, Melanie Griffith, to make a sleazy version of Vertigo and Rear Window and also put a Frankie Goes to Hollywood music video in the middle of a film is fascinating, but the urge to depict that level of violence and the desire to depict acts of cruelty towards women specifically and sentient creatures more broadly alludes Julie and she judges it as something deeply problematic and it hurts her heart. She likes her sadism in cringe humour.
The Bride of Frankenstein James Whale Episode 139 Horror
Broadway Danny Rose Woody Allen Comedy I guess? You know whose fabulous in that? Mia Farrow. She plays a better trashy character in that than Nancy Allen in Blow Out. And she looks fabulous! FABULOUS!
Cabaret Bob Fosse Episode 146/Ongoing Musical
Capturing the Friedmans Andrew Jarecki Ongoing Documentary Inconclusive
Carol Channing: Larger Than Life Dori Berinstein Episode 8 Documentary
Carrie Brian De Palma Horror
ChickenHawk Adi Sideman Episode 133 Documentary
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Cody Cameron & Kris Pearn Episode 133 Animation Julie hasn't seen it(Uh she read the book), but finds it delightful that a concept artist somewhere made animals out of hamburgairs.
The Cooler Wayne Kramer Episode 74 Drama
Crumb Terry Zwigoff Biopic
Despicable Me 2 Pierre Coffin & Chris Renaud Episode 133 Animation
Eating Raoul Paul Bartel Episode 96 Comedy It's a romp. Swingers are like zombies in this movie.

Enough Said Nicole Holofcener Episode 133 Comedy
The Eyes of Tammy Faye Fenton Bailey & Randy Barbato Documentary
The Exorcist William Friedkin Episode 103 Horror
Faithful Paul Mazursky Episode 2 Comedy
Fargo Joel and Ethan Coen Comedy
Feet Feet Feet Quentin Tarantino Episode 151 Feet Feet Feet
Foxcatcher Bennett Miller Episode 195: "She's a Hurricane" Drama Not enough women. (There are only two women who speak in the film.)
Frances Ha Noah Baumbach Episode 117: HWYW Gems 4 Comedy? Frances Ha-ted it. Who dreams of going back to college?
Funny Girl William Wyler Episode 146: "The Opposite of Rock & Roll" Musical romantic comedy The opposite of Rock & Roll. Julie remembers "Don't Rain on My Parade" being much more radical when she heard the song and saw this movie as a child but watching it as an adult, she has more reservations on this movie, the song, and Barbara Streisand as a feminine figure.
George Harrison: Living in the Material World Martin Scorsese Episode 135 Documentary
Ghostbusters Ivan Reitman Episode 2 Comedy
Goodfellas Martin Scorsese Episode 136 Drama
The Graduate Mike Nichols Drama
The Grand Budapest Hotel Wes Anderson Comedy The shots were symmetrical and centred and there weren't a lot of women in it.
Gravity Alfonso Cuarón Episode 134 Drama Stunk. Sandra Bullock's haircut stunk too.
Grey Gardens David Maysles, Albert Maysles, Ellen Hovde & Muffy Meyer Documentary
Hannah and Her Sisters Woody Allen Episode 136 Comedy A masterpiece despite Woody Allen and his attitude towards women.
A Hard Day's Night Richard Lester Episode 135 Comedy
Head Bob Rafelson Episode 53 Musical
Heart of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse George Hickenlooper, Eleanor Coppola & Fax Bahr Documentary
Heathers Michael Lehmann Episode 20 Comedy
Her Spike Jonze Episode 147 Romantic Loved it. Julie has never seen a more artful and accurate movie about life after your heart is broken.[From Twittair]
The Hollywood Complex Dylan Nelson & Dan Sturman Documentary
Hoop Dreams Steve James Episode 73: "The Sneaker Nap" Documentary Could have been better if it had followed the cheerleaders.
Hugo Martin Scorsese Steampunk/Family Liked it. Probably will never see it again.
The Imposter Bart Layton Documentary
Irréversible Gaspar Noé Episode 136 Thriller
The Interrupters Steve James Documentary
Jackie Brown Quentin Tarantino Episode 135 Drama Love it. It gets better everytime you see it. One of the movies Julie can watch whenever.
Jaws Steven Spielberg Horror Is this-Is this a B-Movie?
Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work Ricki Stern Documentary
Johnny Carson: King of Late Night Mark A. Catalena & Peter Jones Episode 130 Documentary
Jumping Jack Flash Penny Marshall Episode 2 Comedy
The Kid Stays in the Picture Brett Morgen Documentary
The King's Speech Tom Hooper Episode 1 Over-dramatization of not-the-most irrelevant thing that happened at that time (WWII) Hated it
The Last House on the Left Wes Craven Episode 136 Horror
Life with Alex Emily Wick Episode 134 Documentary
Logan's Run Michael Anderson Episode 188 Science Fiction Julie fell asleep near the end, but this is one of the better movies that take place in a mall. Peter Ustinov recites lines from T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats(which is also the basis for Cats the Musical) and Julie didn't know what the fuck was going on but she liked those parts and felt the rest of the movie was garbage and silly. Farrah Fawcett was in it. A little bit of Michael York goes a long way but a lot of Michael York...no thank you.
Loopair Rian Johnson Episode 159 Science Fiction/Crime LOOPAIR!!! THAT WAS A GOOD MOVIE!!
Make Believe J. Clay Tweel Episode 11 Documentary
Mannequin Michael Gottlieb Episode 159 Comedy Julie really skewers this movie. Hollywood is wonderful though. Andrew McCarthy's character is a little dumb.
Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present Matthew Akers & Jeff Dupre Documentary
Married to the Eiffel Tower Agnieszka Piotrowska Episode 20 Documentary
Mask Peter Bogdanovich Episode 2 Drama
Midnight in Paris Woody Allen Comedy(I'm guessing) Sure, Woody Allen. Living in Paris twenty years before the Holocaust/World War 2 was great.
Moonstruck Norman Jewison Episode 2 Comedy
Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. Errol Morris Documentary
Nashville Robert Altman Drama
Never Sleep Again:The Elm Street Legacy Daniel Farrands and Andrew Kasch Episode 165 DVD extra Julie doesn't care about the Nightmare on Elm Street series, but she watched this documentary from start to finish and now knows everything about it. Robert Englund is probably terrible in bed. These aren't feminists movies if Freddy Krueger is the one you're rooting for. Freddy Krueger represents the horrible 1980's where the bad guys won. Also The Fresh Prince was a loser. Nightmare on My Street is not a pun, you idiot.
Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film Andrew Monument Horror Documentary Don't bother but there are good clips. Julie doesn't care about 30's Horror movies because she is not Robert Osborne and doesn't care about the Wolf Man or The Mummy (start with Rosemary's Baby). But she did learn about a movie called The Stuff which is about junk food that turns people crazy. Julie likes it when people talk about Horror movies and say "sounds like real life today, right?" and, regarding the more violent torture-based horror films, things like "look at what's on the news! That's worse!". No it isn't because our version of the news is Kathie Lee and Hoda.
The Nomi Song Andrew Horn Documentary
Out of Sight Steven Soderbergh Episode 148 Crime Does not hold up.
Paris is Burning Jennie Livingston Episode 26 Documentary
The Phantom of the Paradise Brian De Palma Episode 130 Horror/Musical
Popeye Robert Altman Musical Julie coke-splained what brought about this film and how weird this film is even though she remembers her family thinking it was a standard family film when in reality it is pretty weird. Everyone making it(Robert Evans, Jules Feiffer, Robert Altman) was like "Toot toot up the patoot" with dunes of white stuff they had just lying around. This is what coke could accomplish. The residents of Sweet Haven are weird. "He Needs Me" is beautiful. "He's Large" is one of the best musical comedy moment songs. Linda Hunt is in it but not in it enough, but there is an Octopus.
Public Speaking Martin Scorsese Episode 26 Documentary
Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino Episode 132 Drama
The Queen of Versailles Lauren Greenfield Episode 74 Documentary Julie loved it.
Red Dragon Brett Ratner Episode 164 Serial Killer stuff Julie went in and out of this movie as it was on tv, but Ralph Fiennes eats a William Blake painting and there could've been more "serial killer dating a blind girl" jokes. A good movie.
Reservoir Dogs Quentin Tarantino Episode 132 Drama
Riding the Bus with My Sister Anjelica Huston Drama
Room 237 Rodney Ascher Documentary
Rosemary's Baby Roman Polanski Ongoing Horror
Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags Marc Levin Episode 6 Documentary
Scream Wes Craven Episode 139 Horror
Sex Crimes Unit Lisa P. Jackson Documentary
The Shining Stanley Kubrick Ongoing Horror
Shivairs(Shivers) David Cronenberg Horror Just gross. A very silly and gross movie that looked like Nick Zedd tried to make a porno in Canada and then he got bored so he just started playing with doodee. The gross out sub-genre of horror is like kids playing with poop. It doesn't tickle the mind! Not like The Stuff!
Sisters Brian de Palma Episode 186 Suspense Julie enjoyed it but doesn't know if it was good. It could be terrible. It's probably terrible. Margot Kidder and William Finley(Winslow Leach from The Phantom of the Paradise) play French Canadians.
Sling Blade Billy Bob Thornton http://howwasyourweek.libsyn.com/merrill-markoe-brian-stack-andy-kindler-hwyw-gem-vol-6- Gems Vol. 6] Southern Gothic/90's movie/Yup The film Billy Bob Thornton wanted to make in the 90's. He wrote it. He wanted to direct it. He wanted to star in it. And then some years later he had the filthiest and most macabre sex with Angelina Jolie imaginable where they drank each other's pee probably.
Sleeper Woody Allen Episode 136 Comedy
The Source Family Jodi Wille, Maria Demopoulos Documentary
Splash Ron Howard Comedy
The Staircase Jean-Xavier de Lestrade Episode 187 Documentary Mini series Julie mainly talked about the anal sex portion of the mini-series but she recommends it. It's a good documentary especially if you love to fuck but have never been fucked and not sure you are interested.
Stanley Kubrick's Boxes Jon Ronson Documentary
The Stuff Larry Cohen Horror Danny Aiello and his dog try to eat each other.
Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon Mike Myers Episode 172: "Pellet of Pleasure" Documentary Myers' directorial choices were occasionally baffling. He does a lot of things that Soderbergh would not have done.
Synecdoche, New York Charlie Kaufman ? Julie doesn't care much for it but it is Jason Woliner's favorite movie.
Tabloid Errol Morris Episode 21 Documentary
Three Amigos John Landis Episode 140 Comedy
Tootsie Sydney Pollack Episode 7 Comedy
Twilight Zone: The Movie John Landis, Steve Spielberg, Joe Dante, and George Miller Anthology film FINALLY! Julie really took the Twilight Zone movie down a notch. Not a good movie, especially when you consider that people died making it(Vic Morrow, Myca Dinh Le, and Renee Shin-Yi Chen) and John Landis had enough footage to work around it for his dumb vignette. Also Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks sing Creedence in the beginning? Scatman Crothers can read the phonebook to Julie but she had to skip through that "Kick The Can" segment.
The Unsinkable Molly Brown Charles Walters Episode 133 Musical
Vernon Florida Errol Morris Documentary
Vice Versa Brian Gilbert Episode 47 Comedy
Walking and Talking Nicole Holofcener Episode 136 Drama
Vicky Cristina Barcelona Woody Allen Episode 136 Comedy
We're the Millers Rawson Marshall Thurber Episode 133 Comedy
The Wiz Sidney Lumet Musical A bad idea. The Wiz IS an icky experience or could be an icky experience if you haven't had nostalgia or affection for it. There is a 70's darkness to it that is quite scary in places and in others there is a saccharin brightness that people at the time thought would be delightful to children and maybe was to some but that mold and dust aged it so quickly that it became grotesque seemingly overnight. The Wiz is like a Birthday clown. A sad, crying clown that came to a child's birthday party and doesn't know why everyone is upset. It is like a dried macaroni collage that you made for your mom in the 70's and stayed up in the fridge since then and the pasta yellowed as the construction paper fades on the avocado coloured fridge door. That's what watching The Wiz is to Julie visually. Emotionally it is a whole bunch of other unpleasant things. Everytime Julie watches it she stops at a certain point. This time it was when Michael Jackson as The Scarecrow asks the crows passively and submissively to stop eating his body. Human beings dressed as crows eating him while he warmly says "Good Morning Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your breakfast!" Julie could not handle it. She stopped watching and then started watching August: Osage County and shut that off when Julia Roberts started talking. They're called Boobs, Ed.
The Wizard of Oz Victor Fleming Episode 137 Musical
Working Girl Mike Nichols Episode 2 Comedy
