    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    Scavenger Hunt #83 | #14

    [SPOILERS AHEAD]

    With its stalking camera, horrific violence, mesmerizing dancing, and brilliant direction, Suspiria is a truly unique film.

    I was prompted to watch Suspiria through the Scavenger Hunt #83 challenge with the challenge being to watch a film centered around a platonic friendship. Suspiria might be somewhat of a stretch in terms of fulfilling the challenge's objective, but the theme of sisterhood is still overtly present within the film.

    Suspiria's singular vision comes clearly…

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    Watching Mulholland Drive feels almost evolutionary, constantly changing with every viewing as new details and nuances come to light. It never once feels old due to its brilliant editing that seamlessly weaves multiple side stories and ideas together in some of the best two hours of cinema ever put to screen.

    It never relies on cheap visuals or over explanatory exposition, but rather on its audience's merit and intellect.

    I constantly grow fonder of this film every time that I…

    Not Okay

    ★★½

    Not okay is a mixed bag of a film. It started out well - the performances perfectly captured the tone of the film, the attention to detail in the sets and costumes were great, and the funny yet cliched dialogue consistently build the plot of the film. 

    At some point the film turned muffled in its thoughts and ideas, and the point of the film became unclear. It didn’t help to have an extremely unlikable protagonist with close to no…

    Ms. Marvel

    ★★★½

    Ms.Marvel is one of the best Disney+ shows so far.

    The first three episodes were especially well crafted as the superhero stuff took a second stage to creating an actually investing story. Focusing on Kamala's family, friends and her relationship with religion, it made the characters feel important.

    Episode four and five felt totally out of place, even though they weren't terrible in their own right. This boils down the series' biggest issue that it's simply too crammed.

    The individual elements of the series are great, they just aren't fited together well enough for it to truly work.

    ★★★

    Overall a good story worth exploring. The show itself was of a good quality, but it felt somehow stretched thin. I do think it might have worked better as a film or a proper, longer series.

  • The Game

    The Game

    ★★★★

    A truly entertaining film. David Fincher's The Game is intense beyond messure and a thrilling ride from start to finish. It makes you think you know what will happen, but still manages to surprise you, perfectly placing you in the paranoid mind of the protagonist. Michael Douglas is always a pleasure to watch and paired with David Fincher's sense of direction it made for a satisfying film with an even more satisfying ending.

    The Game is one of those films that has been sitting idle in my watchlist for years for no apperant reason. And now I finally got around to watching it. Glad I did.
