    The Virgin Suicides

    ★★★★★

    We’re suffocating.” 

    The way I shot this movie straight into my veins when I was 15 and suicidal and so unbelievably angry at the world... Such a bizarre sensation to return to it now, nearly a decade later, older and still angry at the world. 

    Adults are so quick to say teens are over dramatic, that their problems aren’t as serious as they think. But teenage girlhood really is agony incarnate. Sexualized by just about every man you pass, discredited…

    Je, tu, il, elle

    ★★★★½

    You are young and you are beautiful and you’ve just been broken up with. Your apartment feels so much bigger without them in it. Your apartment feels too big without them in it. You move the furniture around, trying to make things take up more space than they should. Trying to produce the feeling of more bodies in the room. But it’s just you. It’s just you and the heartache. The heartache is blinded by grief and doesn’t know you’re…

    This is only the beginning.” 

    Okay, I’m onboard. Like, fully and wholeheartedly onboard. I need at minimum two more installments of Dune

    It’s been an extremely long time since a sci-fi film as epic in size and depth as Dune has truly captured my interest so completely. I was skeptical going in, wary of what I had heard of the franchise before watching, and I left with only one disappointment: that there isn’t a confirmed sequel yet. Worth the time…

    Crimson Peak

    ★★★★

    If there’s one thing reading and watching gothic horror has drilled into my brain, it’s never trust anyone but the protagonist, and even they’re iffy half the time. So, unfortunately, it was really easy to determine what was to come in Crimson Peaks’ storyline. 

    However, the predictability wasn’t a complete ruiner of my watch because I just absolutely adore the way del Toro showcases ghosts on screen. It was marvelous to see where his visions of the paranormal have evolved…

    You’re really hard to read...” 
    Yeah, you know what, I get that all the time, but I actually think that I’m so easy to read that people just get confused and they make it harder on themselves.” 

    Black Bear is savagely primal. Aubrey Plaza’s performance is both captivating and horrifying. Christopher Abbott and Sarah Gadon delivery as well, but our lead is the lead for a reason. Plaza plays off the two of them in such an intense way that…

    Malignant

    ★★

    … I am on my knees begging writers and directors to stop using female body trauma (rape/miscarriages/abuse) as brief plot devices or virtually the only exposition surrounding female characters’ backstories, its mentions featured for maybe ten minutes of screen time, only to then miraculously be completely forgotten or never properly and healthily addressed. Please. I am so tired. 

    Malignant is what I’d call a big ole razzle dazzle of nonsense. It has the visuals of a multi-million dollar funded project,…
