    Twilight

    ★★★★

    I’m going to preface this review by saying I was that twelve/thirteen year old girl with Twilight posters all over her bedroom walls and was absolutely fucking obsessed with everything to do with it... but when it became popular to hate on it to be ‘cool’ I did that, and now that I’m in my 20s and have grown up I’m realising that shit was just stupid and people can like whatever the hell they like and shouldn’t have to justify…

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    “do all lovers feel they’re inventing something?”

    wow. i have no words for this film. nothing that can do it justice, at least. i’ve written many versions of a review that analyses the work of art that is portrait of a lady on fire, however nothing i wrote felt good enough. i remember reading somewhere that céline sciamma wrote portrait of a lady on fire as a tribute to the female artists of the past. whose work hangs unnamed and…

    Looking for Alaska

    ★★★★½

    Just a heads up, this does contain a major spoiler (for those that aren’t familiar with the story – book or series)

    I went into this not really remembering much about the book. I read it once, when I was in high school, and I remembered it affected me so much that I wasn’t sure if it was something I could read again. I’ve always been slow to jump on the train of TV shows and miniseries, like this one.…

  • The One I Love

    The One I Love

    ★★★½

    I don’t know what I expected when I pressed play on this, but it certainly wasn’t what I got... Holy shit what a trip. I guess it’s good to kind of go in blind sometimes, because when you do, movies like this definitely hit different. Really unique concept and very thought-provoking. It was kind of predictable at times, but mostly I was just reeling from the fact that it was so much more clever and insanely funny than I was…

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    When a film gets as much hype as this one has received, I’m instantly suspicious and convince myself I’ll be disappointed in it. I’ve never been so glad to be wrong. Parasite does NOT disappoint. I’m so glad I went in with no real ideas of the plot, having avoided the trailers, and generally not really having any expectations on what I was about to see. It was mind-blowing, hilarious, diabolical and tragic all rolled into one. I saw it…

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★

    Fuck.

    Intense, claustrophobic, exhilarating, pulsating, anxiety-ridden madness. I feel out of breath. I never thought I would be saying the name Adam Sandler next to the words fantastic performance, but it was (a fantastic performance) and Adam Sandler definitely gave it, so here we are. Way better than I expected this to be, that’s for damn sure.
