    ★★★★★

    i wasn’t sure if i should rate this 4.5 or 5 stars, but 5 stars it is, SCREW IT! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS. EVERY SECOND OF IT. 
    the main reason why i watched this was because of the upcoming netflix film, and since i likely won’t have the time to the read the book before the new movie comes out, i figured i should at least check out the first adaptation directed by no other than alfred hitchcock himself.

    Citizen Kane

    ★★★★

    am i a real cinephile now?
    i watched this last night, gave it some thought, and rewatched it today (in hopes of not falling asleep again even though i really was tired last night). and what can i say? i get it, but at the same time, i don’t get it.
    i think the main “issue” with citizen kane is that because it’s often hailed as the greatest or the best movie ever made, it’s impossible to watch without having,…

    ★★★★

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS!!!!!!!!
    fun, spicy, refreshing, heartfelt, thought-provoking and visually stunning, kajillionaire is a much needed film in 2020. i was drawn in right from the opening frame that simply bursts with character and color, much like the film itself. as we follow the main character, or old dolio, through her life, we explore her relationships with others, namely her parents, through her struggles and adventures, and probably most of all, we get a glimpse into her unique personality and identity.

    On the Rocks

    ★★★

    where do i begin? after seeing the average rating on here, i decided not to get my hopes up, and unfortunately, on the rocks, one of my more anticipated movies of 2020, leaves me feeling empty. 
    although the premise in and of itself, while simple, sounds fun, the execution falls flat in some ways. as a consequence, the setting of the film, which already didn’t speak to me that much personally, hardly kept me engaged through its relatively short runtime.

    Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

    ★★★½

    if i’m being honest, i never even heard of borat before, but i saw so many of you guys watch it and since the premise sounded more than intriguing, i decided to give it a try before seeing the newly released sequel. 
    an equally intelligent and comedic coalescence of ingenious jokes, cinematography, editing and visual gags, borat surprised me not only with an unexpectedly convincing performance by sacha baron cohen, but also a relentlessly funny narrative. the academy definitely did something right when…

    borat: if 2020 was a movie

    borat subsequent moviefilm left me just as amazed as i was after watching the first film, if not more. the screenplay is just as funny, imaginative and entertaining, and the two lead performances were perfectly synchronized with the overall tone of the film. 
    as opposed to the first movie, this one obviously feels a lot more relevant right now; and having been stuck in an uncertainty caused by the pandemic for most of 2020, this…
