    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    ★★★★★

    Although not technically the first Studio Ghibli movie, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind set the foundation for everything that we have come to love most in their long body of work from over the years – we nonetheless still recognize it as one of their films. Being only the second feature film directed by Hayao Miyazaki as well as the first to have been based upon his own property, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind not only…

    I’ve been on the verge of suicide at numerous points of my life. I keep trying to convince myself that everything is going to get better; yet nothing I find out of my life is set to really change that. Even my own peers seem to be of no use to me anymore, even when I feel like they’re supposed to be the ones I trust most. My whole life feels like I’m just stuck inside of a void that…

    ★★★

    If you're a millennial or a Gen Z person like I am, then odds are that you've probably seen this movie in a health and fitness class in high school at some point; I didn't. But I think that if you've seen Hoosiers, you have an idea of what's to be expected from Rudy.

    It's also not bad, but it's the perfect checklist of everything you can expect from any inspirational sports drama. But David Anspaugh and company still stick…

    The Social Network

    ★★★★★

It's best emphasized in a conversation between Mark Zuckerberg and his girlfriend Erica Albright, and the views that he has of his own self-worth jeopardize his own friendships as he supposedly builds a site with the intention of keeping people connected with one another. But for as much of…

    (NOTE 12/02/2019): This is not exactly my best writing - as I was only starting to develop my skills as a teenager with writing single paragraph-long reviews, but eventually I plan to write a more detailed review explaining why this is my favourite film of all time to take over this space. I will leave this old review up for keepsakes, but I will also include the new text to be visible first in the foreseeable future.

    Before I begin,…

    Cats

    I'm going to write a full review at some point, but for now, please enjoy these unpublished Twitter drafts I prepped up.

    I heard this movie was horny but I certainly didn't expect the entire Eyes Wide Shut orgy scene but with cats.

    Get Out: *is the scariest Blumhouse movie of the decade*
    Tom Hooper: "hold my beer"

    If this movie made me suffer the mental image of Taylor Swift and Idris Elba having sex as cats, I'll pass it…
