    i think we're all just a little tired of woody harrelson

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★

    this movie made me an alcoholic.

  • The Grudge

    The Grudge

    I have no idea what just happened. I couldn't tell you a thing about this movie apart from that it shouldn't have been made. Such a mess.

  • A Fall From Grace

    A Fall From Grace

    Better things to do with your time than to spend it watching this movie:

    - Play an instrument
    - Play a sport
    - Read a book
    - Watch literally any other movie
    - Hang out with friends
    - Stick your head through a meat grinder

  • Dolittle

    Dolittle

    me during the opening cartoon sequence: this doesn't even seem that bad...

    not even two minutes later: oh

    30 minutes in: ohh..

    1 hour in: ohhhh...

    credits roll: ah. right. yeah.

  • Frankenstein

    Frankenstein

    ★★★½

    Frankenstein (1931) is visually beautiful. The set design and cinematography work so well together, everything is wonderful to look at.

    Although the acting is relatively poor, it can be overlooked due to the standards at the time. With theater actors slowly adapting and learning to act in front of movie cameras, most of the cast pull off impressive performances, considering how new everything would have been for them.

    The editing was at most times, fine, but there were a few…

  • Black Swan

    Black Swan

    ★★★★½

    Director Darren Aronofsky conducts a dark, gritty and claustrophobic view of one's crazed obsession with perfection, while artistically mirroring the "Black Swan" ballet in the character's own, real life in one of the most impressive character studies of the decade.

    The bizarre intimacy achieved in this film is wildly impressive. A must watch for fans of movies that like to do things a little differently.

  • Underworld

    Underworld

    ½

    i fell asleep during this and it gave me chaotic dreams. half a star.

  • John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch

    John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch

    ★★★½

    Crazy how in this comedy special the actual comic is only the 2nd funniest person in this.

    Jake Gyllenhaal stole the show the second he arrived on screen. The chaotic energy seeping out of that man is truly breathtaking.

  • Her

    Her

    ★★★★

    I gave this a rewatch tonight and it really helped solidify my opinion on it. Her is a truly beautiful work of art and I could go on for quite sometime about how impressive it is.

    but

    that's been done to death. So time to talk about a personal problem I have with it!!

    I understand how some movies can simply just not be for you, and this is one of them. I liked it...but it also annoyed me.

    Something…
