    Lady Bird

    ★★★★½

    school ends this week! aa! this means i can fit in more movies in the summer! :’) but with my freshman year ending on friday, this seemed like a good movie to check out. 

    one hundred (or more?) films before my sophomore year of high school starts challenge -

    MOVIE THREE: LADY BIRD (2017) DIR. GRETA GERWIG

    this has officially made me a complete and utter mess for timothée chalamet, what the fuck.

    MOVIE TWO: FROM UP ON POPPY HILL (2011), DIR. GORÔ MIYAZAKI

    i was really finding myself getting invested in this girl and her life within the first half of the film. it was subtle, simple, clear, and it all really lacked confusion. everything she did, have it be her chores or helping out her family, was just set in a really beautiful light that i…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    i love movies, and that’s kinda obvious, but sometimes i just feel like i don’t go and watch enough. so, with school ending soon, and with summing being well on its way, i’m gonna try to fit in one hundred (or more) movies before my sophomore year comes back in august. so let’s begin the —

    (500) Days of Summer

    ★★★★½

    okay, so here’s a more thorough review on this movie, mainly since it’s been on my mind a lot.

    let me just say that i’m so glad this movie exists. society NEEDED a romance movie like this; one that’s a complete wake up call for everyone to hear. i’m sure there’s been similar movies in comparison to its message in the past, but none are as notable or widely known as this one. it’ll surely be a classic, no doubt…

    (500) Days of Summer

    ★★★★½

    an emotional, creative, relatable journey that dives into self discovery and how to healthily connect with others — oh, yeah! it’s sort of a romantic movie too, almost forgot, lmao.

  • La Jetée

    La Jetée

    ★★★★★

    a film that keeps you hooked due to its style, beauty, and tense (yet quiet) plot — even if it’s only about twenty-six minutes long. 

    the frames and use of storytelling is absolutely fantastic, the shades and contrast of the black and white really knowing when to be sharp and subtle during certain periods of time we follow. the chemistry behind our characters lacks, but this is a film that focuses more on the depth of its plot and the…

  • Lost in Translation

    Lost in Translation

    ★★★★★

    the little movie that speaks for millions.

    lost in translation is a movie that practically relies on an oxymoron — everything seems so big, yet everything feels so small; especially you.
    the subtle tale of two characters, both seemingly having their own kind of life crises, meeting and sharing a connection due to their loneliness seems like a pretty common and simple story once you glance over it a few times, but this movie really travels into the psyche of…

  • The Godfather: Part II

    The Godfather: Part II

    ★★★★½

    this was a great contrast in comparison to the original godfather film — the first one being more about the rise and physical necessities when it comes to joining the family business, while this one takes a look more into the psychological aspect of the business and how it affects you and others.

    michael’s character arc from the previous film to this one is not only absolutely amazing, but extremely horrifying. not to mention, the acting is fantabulous — john…

  • Miracle

    Miracle

    ★★★★

    had to rewatch this movie to get a better taste in my mouth after that last movie. the whole plot and how it’s structured and acted is just perfectly done, especially when the climax occurs. a sports movie classic.

  • Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    ★★★

    this is definitely one of those kind of movies where it has so much build up yet not much delivery. the pacing felt so rushed and unfocused, it was almost like they were just trying to make it lack any depth. something about it really gives off this vibe where it’s trying to be big and making this big statement, but it just felt basic, bland, and unsatisfying.

    the good things really do shine through though. some of the acting…
