    "The free meeting has ended... thank you for choosing Zoom" - Zoom,

    - 2020 Ranked: boxd.it/4zdAI

    Masks don't protect you from demons girl.

    I believe this Zoom commercial is the first film released that references Covid and the quarantine which is fun. I can't believe we've been going through this shit for so long. I mean in real life this would be pretty spooky but as a movie it's kind of just an Unfriended…

    "You won't need a watch this weekend anyways... because you're on Jesus' time" -Nina,

    - 2020 Ranked: boxd.it/4zdAI

    Get it girl.

    OH MY GOD this movie is too much. In Yes, God, Yes a young girl is tempted by sexual desire but is dealing with Catholic guilt and the general shittyness of people that are high school age. It is the most cringy because it's true film that I have seen in some time. Probably more interesting to people that…

    "To love... to have children... " -Flyora,

    NOT a good date movie...

    So yeah, I'm not going to try to pretend that wasn't one of the best films I've ever seen. It's amazing and perfect and I can't add much to this that scholars and the letterboxd literate haven't already. What I will do is encourage those of you that haven't seen it to see it. I think I avoided this film for years because it was so built up…

    "What do you mean there's no ice? You mean I gotta drink this coffee hot?" -Bad Customer,

    Dozens of films tried to knock this off but the OG is still the best.

    I think that this movie for the most part holds up very well. Not that I mean it feels current because it definitely is dated in many ways, but it still feels like an honest assessment of young Gen X angst of the early 1990s... so it is…

    Dora and the Lost City of Gold

    ★★★

    This movie is fine but its target demographic is 4-10 year olds that aren't scaredy cats.

    10 Better Things to do Than Critically Evaluate this as an Adult:

    (1) Criticize a foreign film without subtitles because you didn't understand the language.

    (2) Criticize the local news for having a depressing ending.

    (3) Tell a child that her taste in music sucks.

    (4) Read a child psychology book

    (5) Call Mr. Rogers a commie bastard.

    (6) Talk to people in the…

    "That would be a very bad idea" - Jean Grey,

    - 2019 Ranked: boxd.it/2lsbC
    - X-Men Ranked: boxd.it/1PZwO

    I know the memo instructed us all to hate this before it even came out but I can't read so I messed up and thought it was entertaining and fine.

    The X-men series in general is one of the better comic book franchises but with the exception of Logan's strength and the weakness of The Last Stand and Apocalypse I would describe…
