    With it being pride month, I figured that now would be a good time to officially announce myself as a member of the LGBT+ community. I have told a few people about this relatively recently, but I’ve never actually announced it publicly, so I figured there’s no better time than right now. I fall somewhere between bisexual and pansexual. I’m still unsure of the specific label I identify with, but it’s important to just get it out there about this…

    Hey everyone, this is likely the most personal review I’ll ever write, and one of the toughest reviews I’ve ever written and shared with people. I’m going to share something that I’ve never shared with anyone, how I am inextricably linked to this film.

    When I was a child, I was sexually abused. I don’t have a lot of recollection of the event since I was only 5 or 6, but it very much so happened and this film has…

    Corpus Christi

    ★★★★

    A really well written and well acted film that never seems to fall into traditional tropes. Every time I felt like there was going to be some drama to advance the plot, there never really was to the extent in which I expected. This allows the film to sink in with the viewer and really get its message across without introducing too many complicated plot elements. Arguably one of the best films about religion out there, and a great critique of a society that doesn’t believe people can change despite their best efforts to.

    Took a bit of time to get into this and understand what the film was going for, but eventually I started to really connect with it. The Jamaican accents are incredibly thick and my dumb American brain had trouble understanding, so I’m thankful that Criterion Channel defaulted to subtitles for this one because I would’ve struggled otherwise. This film seems honest in a lot of ways, and it says a lot about the treatment of people of color in society.…

    Yes, you saw that right. I absolutely could not stand this film. I have never in my entire life had such a visceral hatred for a film. I genuinely think this might be the worst film I have EVER seen. I am just racking my brain trying to think of one, just ONE, redeemable quality of Gran Torino, but I seriously cannot find a single thing that I liked about this, and I am just seething after watching this.

  • Lolita

    Lolita

    ★★

    Lolita is so frustrating because it has a lot of potential to be a really good film as it's an adaptation of an important work. There can be interesting ideas about Oedipal(ish) desire, pedophilia, and even toxic parents controlling your life. I'm so frustrated because there were many opportunities for this to be good, but it just wasn't. It lacks nuance, it lacks well developed characters and motivations, and it lacks a thread of anything that could keep my interest.…
