    Max Keeble's Big Move

    This isn't an actual 7. My rating for these types of movies are purely based on nostalgic enjoyment.

    I had a lot of fun with this movie! It is incredibly dated and ridiculous. Many things do not hold up, but it is definitely a time capsule into what was acceptable for a Disney movie in the early 2000s. The food fight scene brought back so many memories, and I really wish my school started a food fight when I was a kid.

    ★★★★

    I really enjoyed Wolfwalkers a lot! The hand-drawn animation was absolutely gorgeous, and it added so much personality to the film. The plot started off somewhat slow, but then it gradually became more entertaining throughout. Wolfwalkers reminded me a lot of Princess Mononoke, and you can definitely tell that it takes visual and thematic cues from both that film and Watership Down.

    The change in aspect ratio was very effective, as it heightened the emotions in pivotal scenes. The music…

    The Last of Us Part II could have learned some stuff from this tbh.

    Absolutely loved everything from the animation to the themes and the music. All of the characters were incredibly well written and did not in the slightest feel unnecessary. The animation was absolutely beautiful and never felt aged. The score was really well done and memorable, and it hit all of the emotions just right.

    The maturity of this film really helped me be invested in the…

    This was absolutely fantastic.

  • Sorcerer

    Sorcerer

    I almost loved this movie, but unlike The Wages of Fear, I did not really care too much about the characters in the end. The film was really well shot, and I liked the color palette. The bridge scene was my favorite scene, as it was incredibly tense throughout, with extreme close-ups of objects to amp up the tension, just like in Wages of Fear. I really loved the first 30 minutes of Sorcerer. It provided an incredibly different feel…

  • The Wages of Fear

    The Wages of Fear

    Really great up until the VERY ending, which felt really silly to me. Other than that, I loved nearly everything about this. The lack of music really helps build the tension. Every situation pitted against the main characters really tests their bravery and exhibits their personality traits. The acting was great all around. The cinematography and lighting were really great and had well-done uses of extreme close-ups to emphasize the tension. All of the themes presented throughout stuck with me,…

  • What's Up, Doc?

    What's Up, Doc?

    This was really great, especially after my bad experience watching The Knack. The visual gags and setups were absolutely hilarious, and I really liked all of the characters. Barbara Streisand's character was annoying in the right way, unlike the characters in The Knack, who were annoying in the wrong way. What's Up, Doc? was very well-paced and constantly engaging. It was very well-shot, even if there was nothing very mind-blowing. Overall, I really enjoyed this film a lot, and I would love to see it again. Peter Bogdanovich is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors from the 1970s. 4/5

    Not gonna lie, this was kind of annoying. I don't see how this won the Palme d'Or.

    ★★★

    This gave me a much higher appreciation for both Knives Out and The Hateful Eight. I feel like the setup took way too long. I was into it at first, but it overstayed its welcome. All the characters were fine, and they all had interesting setups. Ryan Phillipe’s character had a terrible accent (but it was definitely on purpose). Once the actual murder mystery began —which was way past the halfway mark of the film— the payoff didn’t really matter…
