    the trope of "husband doesn't believe worried wife" in horror movies makes my blood boil like why did you marry her !! and when the husband started spending his evenings at his job out of fear... leaving his poor wife alone to deal with 3 kids ?? he's the real evil

    if you just wanna do a shallow joker movie that tried to pretend it's non political while playing on both the social justice and nostalgia factors at least make it....fun? make it more dc? this doesn't feel like a joker movie as much as it feels just like a... new incel favorite movie.

    accidentally watched two religious horrors in a row (this and the others) and they really established my love for this genre. i think the witch reminds me of the master and margarita by bulgakov, due to its dealing with religion, talking animals and the occult. there's something inherently fascinating in exploring the supernatural through a religious lens.

    actually i was genuinely enjoying the movie until we got to the end and it turns into eugenistic propaganda. i understand the criticism that the movie is basically torture porn for a white audience to feel sorry for, but either through my lack of self awareness or simple admiration for the craft, i loved the story that zain goes through. it's so hard not to get invested into tigrest and her son or zain and his sister.

    i think film…

    the entire time i expected sadie's sister to be the one that survives simply based on her brown hair. needless to say love to see sadiae sink survive!

    The First Wives Club

    β˜…β˜…Β½

    i think it's a shaky attempt at feminism and it's hard to understand why they'd rather prefer taking all the money from their husbands while holding actual CRIMES their husbands committed over their heads? it's a bit ironic that they built a center for (abused) women but then instead of caring about the 16-year-old that elise's ex was taking advantage of, it kind of gets played for laughs. they fail in their own attempt of caring about other women. it'd…

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    the first scene of the movie sets the tone perfectly and enthralls the viewer, but i feel like the movie lost me after hanshiro finished the story about why he ended up alone in the first place. the redeeming quality of the third act is the fight scenes, but i surely preferred the first half of the movie over it. one aspect i loved about it is just learning more about japanese history during the 17th century, as i'm not familiar with historical japanese chinema.

    it's kind of hard to come out of a movie viewing experience and admit that something was simply beyond me. it's unlike any other movie i have seen. i'm so close to just replaying the movie from the start, trying to gather more from it and try to figure it out. but the last shot is just so grand. it's beautiful. it encapsulates the tone of the movie perfectly.

    amy adams as delysia or giselle in enchanted just brings me so much joy, i really want her to do more roles like this, she's absolutely perfect for them. this was such a delightful film, there's literally nothing more uplifting than a good old romcom
