    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★½

    Guess I can still bawl in the theatre afterall

  • Monster

    Monster

    ★★★½

    only films like this: driven by women's despair, how it takes flight to madness, can linger this much for me personally

    (I wanted to write it somewhere that the rape scene here is one that's rightly terrifying, not made to be titilating: thank you patty)

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★½

    Joni said fuck xenophobia! She ‘stole’ 100k+ from a millionaire ! She was my rock the entire way thru! Toni collete I love u!! No one else could’ve pulled it off

  • Life Partners

    Life Partners

    ★★★½

    raised millions ;(

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    ★★★½

    I really really really haven’t felt this inspired since watching lady bird in theaters for the first time; genuinely an engrossing animated film, so much attention ($$$) went into this and it shows; Elsa finally letting her hair down, + into the unknown ? That energy? we ALL need that right now and that’s why this is so beautiful, hits home over and over for me. Kristen Bell I love u so much im gonna go jump off a cliff but not in a suicidal way 💨☃️❄️🤍

  • Corpse Bride

    when Victoria said “perhaps in disappointment, we are perfectly matched” my eyebrows fell off . Iconic. Even if Emily has my heart from like the second she starts acting delusional/devoted, i kind of love Victoria... honestly they should have given us ‘corpse brides’ and emily and Victoria can just be together & overcome & avenge the abuse they’ve been thru <3
