    Noah

    First half of this is brilliant. From the beginning all the way to the flood, I was completely enraptured by the world Aronofsky created, a place that feels biblical in every meaning of the word. Based on scripture, yes, but also grand and majestic in ways that evoke Peter Jackson and Gareth Edwards, a massive canvas upon which stories of a scale we can only barely come to fathom unravel before our eyes. I loved the Watchers, the stark portrayal…

    If I was cursed to burn for all eternity I would simply double check to make sure I had the correct envelope before passing it on. RIP to Christine but I'm different

  • Chalet Girl

    Chalet Girl

    Felicity Jones is an Academy Award nominated actress and starred in a Star Wars movie and I still feel like I have to forcibly get people to remember she exists. She's so effortlessly charming and manages to make this movie, which is pure YA romcom fluff, not just bearable but kind of adorable. She learned to snowboard for this movie! When will you all realize
