  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    Bats (to Buddy and Darling): ...you two screwing without a condom on!

    Despite Bats being a psychopathic, blood-hungry, bank robber, he takes unprotected sex very seriously

  • Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Whew! What a mouthful.

    Uncle Boonmee by Joe is one of the most unique, original, and fascinating films to come out of the decade. And I liked it. In my "Syndromes and a Century" review, I stated the same thing. Although I enjoyed it for the most part, I had a hard time grasping what was going on in SAAC. But just because I don't understand it doesn't mean…

  • Being There

    Being There

    All the Dr. Strangelove jokes that went to waste because I watch movies alone. Oh well, that's why I have Letterboxd! There are people reading this...right?

    This is by far one of the strangest films I've ever seen. Oh, it's not the most surreal, or abstract film I've ever seen. Those experimental type of films do what they're supposed to do and I wasn't surprised or taken aback, in fact I love those kind of films. Being There follows conventional…

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    This movie is awful. It is so sexist because there are only two female characters and they're pretty. And they don't do much. It's also racist because all the bank robbers are white. This is the definition of white washing, everyone knows most criminals are blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... (I'll end this here)

    So I finally saw Baby Driver, a little late, but you'll notice I always am with these (still plan on seeing War of the Apes and Dunkirk. Especially that last…

  • T2 Trainspotting

    T2 Trainspotting

    T2: Trainspotting (I guess that's the official title) stars Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, Ewan Bremner, and Robert Carlysle as an angry Andrei Tarkovsky. (you won't unsee it now)

    This was one of my most anticipated films of the year I was very excited to see this. As Trainspotting slightly being a coming of age film, I wanted to see how Renton and his mates were holding up at this time. Have the boys prospered, or was choosing life a…

  • The Big Short

    The Big Short

    It's like a mix of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and THE OFFICE... make of that what you will.

    So I finally saw THE BIG SHORT and I like it. Maybe not as much as I hoped, but I think the movie eventually saved itself and I liked it! I was really anticipating this movie when it came out. It had a stellar cast, and seemed like an interesting, funny way of telling it's story. Yeah, I'm just now getting…

  • Magnolia

    Magnolia

    Yeah, that's right, this is a first time watch for me. Which is weird because I've seen all of P.T. Anderson's other films and Love the heck out of them. So I don't know why I didn't see this one, it's weird, but nonetheless I finally saw it and am glad I did.

    I heard that people either say this is PTA's best film or his worst film. Some hate it because they think it's a cluttered mess, and at…
