Sometimes I think I’m a genius. And I wish I could just fast-forward my life to the part where everyone knows it.

    ★★★★★

    You’re in your 20s, and everyone is moving at a different rate. Educationally, Professionally, Romantically, Financially.  Frances Ha is about just that. The complicated process of figuring out who you are going to be as an adult. Painfully relatable, expertly written and well performed by Greta G. A truly special film. 5/5.

    It will shock no one to hear that Bill Murray stole the show. One of the better acting jobs we’ve gotten from him in years. The wealthy, aging and ultimately regretful dad takes it upon himself…

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

    ★★★★½

    Brb, gonna go listen to O Children on loop for the next hour or two and imagine it’s the late ‘90s, we’re knee deep into the Second Wizarding War, and I’m having a brief moment with my platonic soulmate inside one of those   “I Love Magic” tents.

    I mean, seriously, how tf did we let France get away with choosing the billionth remake of Les Mis over this as its Oscar entry? Unforgivable.
