    ★★★★★

    This movie is awful. Bella deserves everything happening to her. I would watch it again in a heartbeat. A cinematic classic.

    I'm a twi-hard now, and this is a mark in the sand of when I broke.

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    I enjoy how divisive this movie is, and the fact that some people don't like it. I wish more Marvel movies pushed the boundaries of the MCU's very successful formula to make people (mildly) uncomfortable during their superhero blockbusters.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★

    I'm beyond delighted that Robert Eggers tricked a bunch of producers into thinking this weird movie deserved such a big budget. Robert Eggers should get whatever Robert Eggers wants. (An aside: holy shit at Kidman's acting in this film. That scene? THE scene? Wow.)

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Me before watching the movie: omg I’m finally watching Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Me after watching the movie: oh no so much crying

    The rare movie that lived up to all the hype and then some.

    ★★★★

    They don't really make movies like this anymore? A tight, effective thriller with good performances? You don't think about the movie afterwards, but you'd recommend it to anyone and had a really great time? Love that feeling.

  • Petite Maman

    Petite Maman

    ★★★★

    A captivating little story about, well, growing up and finding peace in the life you've found, rather than the one you wished for. Really touching.

  • The Thing

    ★★★★★

    One of the best ever. No notes.

  • Spectre

    Spectre

    Cannot believe I watched this just so I can watch No Time to Die. Awful.

  • Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    ★★

    Terrible. Awful. Extremely graphic in ways that made me gasp but did not understand what made the original a classic, and applies what was interesting about Alvarez’s take on Evil Dead without the same nuance.

  • Nine Days

    Nine Days

    Spent the evening of my dad’s birthday, who passed 10 years ago this year, watching Nine Days. Wonderful movie about the strangeness—and beauty—of merely existing. A lovely meditation about life and beyond, about what we know and don't know, what we control and dont' control. I'll be thinking about the final moments for years.

    I want to start disliking Lin-Manuel Miranda, and then he goes and makes this great movie. Son of a bitch.
