    can’t believe i’m related to these people.

    i am very, very, very frustrated by the way neurotypicals have reduced the controversy around this movie to being about a neurotypical actor playing an autistic character. that isn’t the real issue here. it’s AN issue, but it’s a more complicated one. right now, please stand by is sitting in my top 4, and that’s a movie about an autistic character played by an allistic actor. while i generally think physically disabled characters…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    just because my dreams are different than yours doesn’t mean they’re unimportant.

    just as the final frame faded to black and the credits began to roll, i heard a hushed whisper from behind me. a girl, talking to her friend, or perhaps sister. her words: “that was perfect”.
    it's hard to disagree.
    little women is one of my favorite books of all time. it’s been adapted approximately 700 billion kajillion times, and i have a very special place in my…

    Stitch! The Movie


    each one of them has a place where they belong, just like sparky belongs at the lighthouse and stitch belongs with me.

    the thing about this movie is it’s basically just an hour long pilot for the tv series. and, it’s not very good. i mean, it isn’t bad either. it’s just sort of fine. it has cute moments! and its animation doesn’t feel phoned in or lazy or cheap the way a lot of the other direct to video…

    revisiting it now, i cried ??? at…

    The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo


    I can be whatever i want to be, as long as i’m not hurting other people.

    a beautiful exploration of what it is to be joyously, maddeningly, wondrously gay, and of what it is to love in the modern era. laugh out loud funny, and deeply tender all at once. a masterpiece of queer media, and a treasure forever.

    this land is your dream?

    nothing short of a masterpiece. woven with so much LOVE, so much attention to detail.
    utterly beautiful.
    this film has my vote for best director so far, if not best picture altogether.
    and youn yuh-jung gives the best performance of all in an amazing cast. that supporting actress category is INSANE this year.
    incredible, incredible, incredible movie.

    it’s the kind of movie that makes you not want to give other movies 5 stars, because how can they compare to the beauty of this?
