    “but your people took it for granted”

    this is such an interesting movie in the sense that you can go as deep as you’d like to go with it. at surface level is a very thrilling and accessible horror movie, but the possibilities are endless from there in all kinds of different directions. i’ve been thinking about it more and more, and during my rewatch tonight my mind was racing with bigger picture theories the entire time

    the most fascinating…

    “well, when the world blows up, i hope i go down dancing”

    sebastián lelio is so especially good at these slice of life pieces, this is so melancholy that it almost feels like a documentary

    ★★★★½

    “everybody does it, it’s just that nobody talks about it”

    the perfect teen melodrama, and one of the best movie soundtracks of the 90’s. now THAT was a classic

    “what do you want?”

    its been over an hour and i can’t think of anything else except whatever this was. simplistically sinister, maybe more comparable to something like the shining instead of get out. i first thought i was somewhat unaffected, but now my mind is clouded with a mild thudding anxiety that won’t go away. this is ridiculously fine tuned to creep under your skin without you noticing. i have to go to sleep now but i doubt i’ll have much success. wish me luck

    “go dance and have fun, you earned it”

    these anti drug psas are getting scarier every year. also, leave it to sofia boutella’s character to end up alive and well and in bed with a woman at the end while a bunch of other characters are lying dead on the floor. finally some justice for what happened to her in atomic blonde

    Score: A Film Music Documentary

    ★★★★½

    cinematically speaking, this isn’t as well put together as it could have been, but the subject matter here is so fascinating that i could care less. the bits of insight into the scoring of movies like the social network, american beauty and inception were particularly gratifying. and the whole john williams portion is magical. it takes so many different elements to make a film, i would eventually love to see a documentary about every branch and process

    ★★½

    that demon lowkey looked like a muppet but back in the day i bet audiences soiled their trousers over it... film and what shocks us about film really has come so far in so short a time, it’s quite remarkable

    for the past 11 years we thought these various heroes were hot shit but all it took was carol danvers absolutely shattering the glass ceiling with her glowing fists to make the rest of the mcu look like kids in halloween costumes. and to find out that all along they’ve been following her lead without knowing it? that they wouldn’t even BE the avengers without her? the galaxy brain of it all. also she’s clearly a lesbian. because i said so
