    Why didn't they just cut the arm off instead of trying to pull the entire gauntlet off, it'd take two seconds and none of this would've happened

    ★★

    Drew bb you're an angel and I love you forever but it looks like you had way more fun filming this than I had watching it! It took me 3 days to get through this. Which was really disappointing because this is like, my type of guilty pleasure movie. Just didn't hit it for me though.

    Finn single-handedly makes this movie good and nothing will ever change my mind. His entire character arc is just excellent. Do we ever see another non-Force-wielder use a lightsaber, in any of the other movies? Let alone an ex-storm trooper?

    I do very much love that we have a female lead as Rey, and she is likeable, but just not nearly as interesting or well-developed as Finn imo.

    Me, googling this movie while the credits are still rolling and learning it's adapted from a William Gibson piece: "oh, that explains it"

    ★★★

    I've been looking forward to watching this for a long time but wasn't that impressed, maybe it would've been better if i hadn't already seen Everybody Wants Some.

    ★★½

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

    My boyfriend got up at 8 AM to watch this movie since it's so damned long. I wasn't planning on watching it with him but got off work unexpectedly and had nothing better to do.

    All of the non-Flash performances felt so stilted. There's a scene where Wonder Woman and Batman are talking about Justice League Stuff (TM) and it's just like a low-budget video game cutscene, where Character A says their lines, where the voice actor isn't really paid…

  • Stargate

    Stargate

    ★★★

    First of all, what is it with old sci fi movies and deserts? Star Wars, the Fifth Element, Dune, and this? Probably more I don't even know about.

    Second of all, how did I miss this?? I never saw it as a kid, but absolutely should have, it would have been right up my alley, and looks like the kind of thing they would've shown on TV, too. Maybe it was only on cable networks and not on over-the-air channels…

  • Gangs of New York

    Gangs of New York

    ★★★

    It was fine, idk. Cameron Diaz enters an early scene as Jenny, the first conventionally attractive female character to appear in the movie, and it's painfully clear that this means she's the love interest. In fact she's the only significant female character, and exists solely as a love interest, and that pretty much told me everything I need to know about what kind of movie this is, less than 30 minutes into it. Hell Cat Maggie, one of the most…

  • Nomadland

    ★★★★½

    As the credits were rolling, roxii was marveling at how very tender and real all these people felt. Watching the credits, we realized that the vast majority of the people in this film played themselves. These characters felt like real people because they were. Just people, with stories and lives.

    What a special piece this was.

  • Monster Hunter

    Monster Hunter

    ★★

    The only interesting character was the cat, and he got all of 2 minutes of screen time.

    Apparently it was National Popcorn Day though, so we got free popcorn!

  • Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

    Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

    I've 100% seen this movie at some point in my life - I remember the plot and several scenes from it - but absolutely do not remember the circumstances. Idk who was with me (if anyone), if it was in theaters, at a friend's place, or if I rented it. All I know is that I never logged it, so it must have been before I started using Letterboxd. But was there really a time before Letterboxd? I don't even want to entertain the memory of that godless existence
