    ★★★★★

    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…

    First time seeing this since TIFF Midnight Madness, all I can really say is this: you are not ready to witness the Waka Starz in action.

    Cover Girl

    ★★★½

    Not really great by any means but everything about this movie is so gorgeously crafted you can't really take your eyes off of it. Plus when the music is every bit as catchy as it is, with the talents of Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly coming in to top everything off, what's not to enjoy?

    From watching Cover Girl, the one thing that hits me is the fact that even if the movies themselves may not be great, there's something about Rita Hayworth's presence that always keeps me watching. If anything, it's as much a reminder I just need to see more of Hayworth's movies.

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    I'm going to write a full review at some point, but for now, please enjoy these unpublished Twitter drafts I prepped up.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