    Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets


    seeing Fundie Fridays in this made me so proud like that is FAM (watch fundie Fridays if you haven’t)

  • The Night House

    The Night House


    the horror genre has time and time again proven to be a prime landscape for deep explorations of grief - a match made in hell if you will. This is a fine addition to a rich subgenre, but there are definitely many with better acting & writing (outside of Rebecca Hall who is fantastic)

  • The Worst Person in the World

    The Worst Person in the World


    I began to worship what had been. And now I have nothing else. I have no future. I can only look back.

    About Time


    Unfortunately not all the time-bending existential movies can be bangers

  • The Little Mermaid

    The Little Mermaid


    Halle completely carries & elevates this. she is a force of nature - truly a princess personified. her and Eric’s relationship & chemistry was so adorable and joyful, they ate that

    bo burnham…please make another narrative feature I beg of you

  • Sanctuary



    should’ve been a crisp 80 minutes

  • Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story

    Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story


    i will stand with you between the heavens and the earth. i will tell you where you are.

    wow. just so, so devastatingly romantic. an unabashed ode to the indomitable force of 2 souls choosing each other, through sickness and in health. the chemistry between them was utter perfection. whew this really blew me away 🥹

  • Polite Society

    Polite Society


    beau is afraid & polite society would make an excellent and extremely trippy double feature.  mothers obsessed w/ their sons to the point that they are terrifyingly unhinged & villainous; sons becoming emotionally stunted & highly dependent products of that trauma. wild and fascinating!

  • Chevalier



    kelvin harrison jr is a goddamn star. this was already made clear with waves but he just affirms it with every new project he does. Oscar incoming!

  • Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.

    Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.


    Kelly Fremon Craig was such a perfect choice for this. adorable and funny and awkward in all the ways that a truthful account of girlhood should be

  • Beau Is Afraid

    Beau Is Afraid


    visualizes the feeling of an anxiety-fueled nightmare, the ultimate doom-filled spiral of all your worst, irrational fears manifested. I really connect to Ari’s exploration of trauma and the intricacies of mental health in his horror. my thoughts on trauma porn are, because I know it will be discussed here like it is with ari’s prior work: what to one person is dismissible as “trauma porn” is another person’s reality and lived experiences, which will always deserve to be told and listened to.
