    Oil paintings? Nope.

    Watercolor? No, thanks.

    Pastel's where it's at.

  • Blow Out

    Blow Out

    ★★★½

    Watched it as a sort of recommendation from Tarantino's top favorites list. Apart from some of the 70s/80s tropes such as its exaggerated choice and placement of music, I really enjoyed Blow Out's the style and cinematography.

    But the 3rd act absolutely destroyed it for me. Jeez!

    Basically it feels like De Palma had an idea about how the ending should've been, but he didn't know how to get there naturally. What he did then was to create an excuse…

    The Florida Project

    ★★★★

    Of all the movies released in 2017, the one that felt real and genuine the most. Whether that is good or not, it's up to you!

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout more like Mission: Impossible - Fuck Yes!

    What a feat it is to make an 2.5 hour-long action movie this fluid, and also manage to create brilliant set pieces that improve upon one another without ever falling flat. Speaking of improvement, Mission: Impossible - Fallout also flourishes by utilizing Ethan Hunt's insane personality as his greatest weakness/strength better than in previous installments, which turns the already thrilling payoff even more dramatic in the end.
