    ★★★★½

    Top contender of being the most awesome messed up movie I have ever seen. The editing, the music, and the two all time performances from the protagonist and antagonist really makes the entire movie for me and it clearly demonstrates to me why it is the classic that it is today. I really love how the story unravels to reveal the situation that Oh-Daesu is in and really flesh out the character in such a unique way without wasting any…

    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

    Wow.

    I simply cannot believe how much my expectations were exceeded after watching this movie. Everyone involved making this film somehow knew how to improve upon perfection with the little problems I had with Into the Spiderverse are almost nonexistent in this film, though I do have some problems with this film as well that are mainly plot based but I may explain them in another review when I rewatch it. The main aspect and real star of the show…

The story is perfectly paced and told in the most epic way imaginable…

    I can imagine this being a very similar representation of Charlie Kaufman’s childhood.

    I would love to say that Nope is dope, but it honestly underwhelmed me when it was all over. There is still plenty that I liked about it such as the visual effects, the design of the alien, the performances, the music, and the direction that were all great to see from a summer blockbuster. I just did not like how everything about the story came together because it was difficult for me to wrap my head around the plot…

    Past Lives

    ★★★★

    A movie that appears to be simple and straightforward, yet says so much in the unspoken dialogue and the filmmaking on display. Just like the Before trilogy (have still yet to see the third one as of writing this review), this movie moves at a brisk, engaging pace for one that is just conversations with just two people, which is all thanks to the amazing editing. Seeing these two characters talking and rekindling their chemistry within each 12 year period…
