    Pretty to look at! Little else of worth otherwise. The Wizarding World continues to die for me.

    I will continue to follow Michelle Yeoh to the ends of the earth
    Additionally, this is what the MCU multiverse wishes it could be.

    I miss you Phillip Seymour Hoffman 

    Holds up from high school, still one of my favorite quiet movies.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★½

    Dang. Dennis Villeneuve does it again - truly, one of my favorite directors to set up a scene and make it come across as haunting and futuristic. This is probably one of the best adaptations I’ve seen, and the world building is both incredibly otherworldly and wholly believable. Also, I too dream of Zendaya. 

    Will include the footnote that the original source material draws heavily from Middle Eastern culture/white saviorism and colonialism, but the film itself incorporates these inspirations in…

  • Monster Hunter

    Monster Hunter

    Probably one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen? The cutting is near impossible to keep track of, which makes one dizzy even when they’re not watching on a plane. Storyline is a mess, ending didn’t feel like an actual ending or resolution, and 100% the majority of the budget was spent on Ratholos. 

    Still love the franchise tho 🥲

    admittedly I didn't know anything about wework but if anyone sells me on living to work but also doesn't pay me - idk

  • The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    ★★★★

    Such a tighter movie than the first. With some really memorable moments and excellent camerawork! The games do feel more like a spectacle in this one, which makes one feel uncomfortably close to the Capitol, but the pieces of the revolution happening in the background/without Katniss’ knowledge is incredibly well done and leaves one waiting for the next installment.

  • The Hunger Games

    The Hunger Games

    ★★½

    I hold to my prior/very old star review - this has the potential to be quite good, but loses its way in having itself portrayed as an adaptation of a YA dystopian novel, so many of the dystopian things are highly glossed over and obscured by shinier things in the film. The movie largely hits its stride in the moment when Rue dies - that’s when the stakes suddenly feel more real and personal than just a white-dystopian version of…

  • West Side Story

    West Side Story

    ★★★★

    Admittedly, I have never seen West Side Story, the musical, the movie, nothing. I only saw a trailer and thought, huh, there’s a lot of musical movies coming out. But I’ll be damned if this isn’t a new classic film for an already classic piece, with stunning visuals and choreography, and a tension between innocence and violence that never breaks. I think this was incredibly done, and a true joy to watch. 

    I’ve read some criticisms about the way Puerto…
