    With an ending so crazy and suspenseful it’s hard to recreate that feeling with a rewatch however whilst i didn’t feel as mind blown as the first time i saw this even though i knew the main spoiler from being a dumb 8 year old on youtube constantly watching “top 10 movie plot twists of all time” without actually having seen any of the films, i still have to marvel at the genius screenwriting and suspense built in that third…

    Gotta say i was a little reluctant to rewatch this despite loving it a lot due to the whole Armie Hammer thing, can you separate the artist from the art who knows but tbh he was already my least favourite character/s in the film.

    They actually had two actors playing the winklevoss twins but one of them got his face cgi-ed out and had Armie Hammers face put on even though he was in every scene - we just never…

    Watched for a college essay on my favourite film.

    Sounds cliche and annoying but this film to me isn’t really a story i’m following it’s more of a literal spiritual experience. This is legit my favourite film and yet everytime i watch it i can’t help but get a little tired. Not because i’m bored or because i always watch this late at night with the lights off alone but because of just how hypnotic it is. It’s like a…

    ★★★★½

    Everytime i’ve watched a Denis Villeneuve film i’ve always looked at it from a much more technical perspective when it comes to analysing his work (can’t blame myself, they look and sound absolutely incredible) but i could never really pinpoint what his films were really about at their cores and what stories he actually tells when it comes to looking at his filmography as a whole. This viewing of Blade Runner 2049 has finally made me realise the themes normally…

    If you wanna watch anxiety inducing cinema forget Uncut Gems, watch this on an 8ft wide projector in your room alone with your parents meandering around outside and prey they don’t unexpectedly walk in. Never felt so fucking nervous in my life.

    I haven’t seen much korean cinema but from what i’ve seen, they really out here creating some of the most unique and fucked up thrillers i’ve ever seen and i’m ALL HERE FOR IT.

    It’s hard to explain…

    What the fuck lol.

    Loved it, so beyond strange but so beyond clever. I had no idea Nicolas Cage could actually act lol.

    Glad i finally found the origin for the footage of Nic Cage at the typewriter that’s used in every “10 ScReeNwRitiNG TiPs yOu nEEd tO knOw” video.

    ★★★

    If Christopher Nolan was a greasy haired emo who built his own pc, tells his own mum to fuck off and listens to Linkin Park = this movie.

    This just isn’t my thing. Again, nothing particularly bad about it, it’s structures great, the fight scenes are fucking awesome, unique concept, it’s just i’m not a really big fan of the leather jackets, the cyber punk feel, the green tint in every scene, in order for me to really love a…

    All the President's Men

    ★★★★

    What i’ve learned from Zodiac and All The Presidents Men: Newspaper people = Detectives.

    This was a no-bullshit, grab you by the balls, thriller that treats you the audience as detective as it takes you a long this conspiracy. It had me invested from the get go but around half way no matter how much i tried to keep up there were just too many god damn names to remember, too much to keep up with that i just become…

    ★★★

    Pffft idk.

    I had no idea what i was getting myself into with this one, was it a character study, thriller, social commentary, i had no idea or maybe all of the above. I just didn’t find it intriguing really and was often waiting to “get into it”. It’s not that there’s particularly anything wrong with the film i personally just couldn’t invest myself in the character, plot, or themes of the film.

    *Watched for college class*

    Fuck it 4 stars for the dance scene and Jesse Plemons singing. I really wasn’t a big fan the first time watching this and i still REFUSE to believe the people of letterboxd watched ‘Tenet’ once and said “way too confusing, shit film next” and then watched “I’m Thinking Of Ending Things” and pretended they knew what was going on. For me at least, it was so frustrating the first time, i was just begging for…

    Special place in my heart for the films made for watching at 2am in ur room alone. 

    Everytime i watch this it feels like i’m going on holiday every year and meeting up with the same people from last holiday that i haven’t seen in a year.

    The first time i saw this in theatres i have to say whilst enjoying it i was a little disappointed and every rewatch i’ve given i seem to be left with the same impression. This film is so so much better and unique than most modern horrors but it’s no where near as special or classic as Get Out which in my opinion is down to one incredibly flawed lacklustre second act. 

    The first and third act are so eerie…
