  • McCabe & Mrs. Miller

    McCabe & Mrs. Miller

    Oof, this one was a chore to get through. I'm sorry, I know I'm not going to make a lot of friends by saying that, but I apologize, this film was just... (sorry to be so blatant) boring. And by boring, I don't mean that I mean that I wanted explosive action, and one-liners every five seconds, no. I haven't described a movie as 'boring' in those regards, since I was 12. Some of my favorite movies are slow-paced, dragged…

  • The Devil's Backbone

    The Devil's Backbone

    ★★★★★

    "A ghost is what I am"

    In the midst of Del Toro's eponymous return, with "The Shape of Water" I thought I should revisit some of his previous films. And I really want to shed light on one an underrated classic, most people strangely overlook in the shadow of his masterpiece "Pan's Labyrinth" Oh "The Devil's Backbone" was quite a success, upon it's release and even up to now. It received highly positive reviews, and currently holds a 92 on…

  • Zazie dans le Métro

    Zazie dans le Métro

    ★★★★★

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

    This film is, the greatest film I have ever seen! I say that more subjectively as this may not be everybody's sense of humor, but for me, this kind of comedy was right up my alley. I could call "Zazie dans le Metro" crazy, I could call it wacky, I could call it zany, but those words sound too tame for this trip I just witnessed. This movie is Off the Wall, Freakin' Nuts! It's insane! This movie makes…

  • Enter the Void

    Enter the Void

    ★★★★½

    One of the most infamous, daring, and experimental films of the 2000's, Gaspar Noe's "Enter The Void" dives right into this lucid region and is nothing short of an experience. The film has been a little controversial and not everyone has liked it, which seems ludicrous, but to each their own. Is any hate toward this film valid, or is it the 2001 of our century? Let's take a look.

    I think everyone is aware, of the insane opening credits,…

  • Mystery Train

    Mystery Train

    Jim Jarmusch is like Wes Anderson to me, in that it may take me awhile to get used to his style of cinema. Jarmusch, like Anderson, makes very idiosyncratic, independent, films that are well written and directed, but are also filled with quirky, deadpan humor, and scenes that seem to be pointless, which not all find appealing. But regardless of that I liked "Mystery Train" in all of it's strangeness!

    This is my third entry in my Jim Jarmusch Journey,…

  • Carol

    Carol

    ★★★★★

    I'm nearly convinced that this is a flawless movie. "Carol" is beautiful in every way a film can be. I know a 'perfect' film is impossible, but I take no issue with this movie whatsoever. From the opening shot, I had been transported to Christmas in the 1950's and hadn't left until the credits rolled. The colors, the music, the sets had me immediately infatuated.

    The tale of two woman who meet and partake in a daring affair, centers around…

  • After Earth

    After Earth

    "That Sucked"
    "That is correct"

    So I saw "After Earth" and it was pretty drained. Now although I didn't like this movie, it's hard to say that I hated it as much as everyone else did. Trust me, it's bad, but many were saying that this was worse than "The Last Airbender" which I strongly disagree with. As a fan of sci-fi, I can see some things, they were trying to do, but many of it was poorly executed. To…

  • It

    It

    ★★★½

    IT is good.

    I know I'm a little late with this one, and sorry that I haven't been writing any reviews lately. I really hate it, but I've been too caught up in other things. I actually saw this film quite a while ago around when it came out, but by now every review on Letterboxd is about Blade Runner. This review will just be lost. Like tears in the rain. Oh Well.

    So I saw IT and what did…

  • The Hundred-Foot Journey

    The Hundred-Foot Journey

    I'm really hungry now.

    Didn't exactly plan on seeing this movie, but it was assigned to me in my English class, and it looked like a decent film, so I went in with an open mind, and genuinely liked it!

    It reminded me of Chocolat (not the Claire Denis, the sappy one with Johnny Depp) Both innocent stories, with vibrant settings, lovable characters, all revolving around food; which at first, I didn't even realize they are both directed by Lasse…

  • Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    ★★★★★

    When I first saw Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb, I didn't laugh all that much. Having come off of watching rip-roaring comedies from The Marx Bros or Buster Keaton, this film at first seemed ill in comparison. But like any Kubrick film, after a few more viewings, I now am convinced how perfectly Dr. Strangelove works not just as a comedy, but as a film. I flawlessly shot, brilliantly acted…

  • The Man Who Would Be King

    The Man Who Would Be King

    I love this movie. It's a ton of fun, while also being dramatic, thrilling, tragic and even containing a slight cynical edge to it. It's just a grand, classic Hollywood adventure, that sadly the industry doesn't make anymore, And only the writing of Rudyard Kipling, the directing of John Huston, and the brilliant performances of Michael Caine and Sean Connery can bring to life in such an exciting, and funny way.

    Kipling makes his story out to mock these two…

  • Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

    Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

    ★★★★★

    So yeah... this is one of the best films I've ever seen!

    I think any film titled "Once Upon a Time in..." is bound to be a masterpiece, because this film blew me away, just like a couple other masterpieces everyone should be familiar with! This film has been compared by some as being like "No Country for Old Men" I would say yes, it's a little similar, but more like if it was directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, and even…
