  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★½

    Mhhm I’m not invested in star wars enough to complain, but there some aspects of this movie I just found bad and unsatisfying. 

    The last few battle scenes were literally just cuts of people talking back and forth in different backgrounds, so lifeless, nothing is particularly impressive. Its weird, I really like TFA, TLJ was just so so, and TROS is an unfortunate instalment to the saga. 

    Was the script written in 30 minutes? Cause it does seem like it,…

    What can I say? it's just as glorious as the first.

    I just want to say that the hardest thing I have to do this year is probably to keep myself from letting out a scream every time they're on screen together.

    I feel like this film is tailored just for me. I have a soft spot for films that let women stare at each other longingly on screen for 2 hours and this is it. I know…

  • Mommy

    no way dude this fucking film is unreal

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    The way this film is all about observation, touch and memory just fucking hits. If you were like me, when the sexual tension was up on the fucking roof, I almost punched my screen.

    Sciamma told the story so patiently, there is no single scene, frame or shot wasted in this film. She only showed us one of the female lead 20 minutes in, she took her time with this. Every glance and stare meant something, even the dialogue had…

  • Short Term 12

    Short Term 12

    ★★★★★

    5 minutes in and i’m already a fucking mess. 

    The way this film made me take psychology as a major so i can help people who needs help... 

    Brie was so amazing, her best performance. I identify with her very much, not in a literal way... but in like how i view myself.

  • Black Mirror: San Junipero

    Black Mirror: San Junipero

    ★★★★

    Awhhhh that was cute. I too want to die and get uploaded to the cloud to be with my girlfriend!

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★½

    Just when I thought this was getting boring, Greta turned that last couple of scenes back around. 

    This film wouldn't have worked if it wasn't for the great ensemble, because of them the iffy moments were saved 

    Everyone was really great, yes even Emma, even though every time she speaks I fear for her life.  

    I prefer laura dern here better than Renata 2.0 in marriage story and that's on that. 

    Timothee, i have mixed feelings on him

    Florence…
