    ★★★★½

    baby you’re gonna miss that plane
    - i know... 

    i just can’t explain my love for both movies so far (and i’m sure the final one won’t disappoint) the dialogue!!!!! MWAH!!!!! like i said about the first one, the simplicity is what makes them so perfect and i absolutely love it and have never seen anything like it before. it’s raw, it’s intimate, it’s heartbreaking in ways, and on top of everything their chemistry is incredible. LOVE IS REAL

  • Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise

    ★★★★½

    the simplicity of this is what makes it so beautiful, for a movie about two strangers walking around a city together and talking the ENTIRE time, it managed to stay entertaining entirely throughout. one of my favourite scripts ever i think!! kinda wanna fall in love and talk about life... accepting applications from now on

    Parasite

    ★★★★½

    going into this not knowing what to expect was an EXPERIENCE and the best way... it went from simple to insane very quick and i loved that about it. there wasn’t a moment while watching where i wasn’t interested or entertained, and that’s exactly what a film like this should be

  • The Skeleton Twins

    The Skeleton Twins

    ★★★★½

    i laughed and cried all during just ONE scene... many times throughout this movie. this was so well made and such perfectly delivered performances from both wiig and hader, i’d die for both of them. let’s talk about the ‘nothing’s gonna stop us now’ scene though... one of the most iconic scenes in cinema deserved an oscar

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★★½

    my expectations for this film were exceeded, if you know me atall you know i’ve been waiting and counting down for this since brie was announced to be playing the role. everything you could want from an introduction to a character and their origin story was in this, and it also had the enjoyment and fun that marvel films always (most of the time) give, the perfect movie for post infinity war and the perfect movie for pre endgame, watch out thanos she’s coming to get you!!

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    ACADEMY AWARD WINNER FOR BEST ANIMATION. AS IT SHOULD BE.
