    "Music is all I think about. From the moment I wake up in the morning to the time I go to sleep at night. I was born to play."

    With this film, Pixar hasn't just made the best animated film of the year, or even their best Pixar film, they may have made one of the best movies of all time.

    Soul is absolutely phenomenal. It does everything right. It follows the usual Pixar formula (which works…

    "It's all or nothing with me. It's who I am."

    When I originally saw Alita, it was on my phone, and it wasn't the best video quality. That's why I was so excited when Cinemark brought it back into theaters. Now I could see it on the big screen and see if that improved the quality. And it most certainly did.

    The visual effects in this movie are out of this world, crazy good. The…

    "One thing lead to another, and then dot, dot, dot."

    This was a silly good fun time had by all, but also one of the most stunningly stupid musicals I've ever seen. I love Meryl, I really do, but her singing voice is not great. She's tried it multiple times: Ricki and the Flash, The Prom, Florence Foster Jenkins (which unironically was her best),and here and it's just not her strong suit.

    It was so painfully obvious…

    "You can't throw a party in Hollywood without showing a movie. It's the law."

    Something I've noticed of the musicals of the pre-90s era really is that dance was just as important, if not as vital, as the music was. Obviously not all the musicals from before then follow that formula, but it was certainly prevalent in the late 40s -60s.

    But here, it's every bit as charming and majestic as intended. Gene Kelly is jovial and…

    "Loneliness is the worst in this place."

    😭😭😭
    A beautiful, searing first-hand look at the life of the elderly in a retirement home. At first, there's joy, celebration, and dance, but the more Sergio discovers, the more it twists and turns at your humanity.

    It's a grounded look at loneliness, death, and a life ultimately disregarded. There are moments throughout the film that will tug away at your heartstrings, but also the pacing is dreadfully slow. Sergio's…

    "What will become of me?"

    Holy heartbreaking heaven!

    Florian Zeller, you heartwrenching, manipulative masterworker. This film takes you deep into the psyche of a person dealing with dementia. His confusion is your own. His loneliness is yours as well. His loss of self is one you too will bear. This is mostly due to Anthony Hopkins sensational performance.

    Hopkins plays this character very gently. He's fused together with him in some direct ways by sharing the same…
