    I envy anyone who gets to watch this film for the first time. Arrival provides a wondrous journey, an emotional shock, and an unforgettable experience. With that being said, I showed this film to my sister this weekend as she had never seen it. This was my 3rd rewatch and I need to say, it only gets better upon rewatches. I've bumped up my score every time I rewatch it and I'm happy to say it truly belongs in the…

    I had a bagel this morning so that was my motivation for watching this today.

    Oh gosh, I am completely blown away. Shiva Baby provides for a tense and comedic experience as it juggles several sensitive topics in a chaotic yet subtle manner. I was impressed by the depth of feeling in this film. It was a reminder of how parents see what they want to see and choose the simplistic narrative of their children's lives. There are many moments…

    She’s just hovering. It’s not that impressive

    Imagine roasting a demon while fighting for your life, couldn't be me. I watched this for the infamous kiss, and got a really great movie in return? This was not a movie I expected to enjoy so much as I don't have much experience in watching horror comedies. This film does not apologize for its odd premise nor does it try to compensate for it. Jennifer's Body plays it straight, recognizing the plot…

    ayyy mama!!

    I went into this movie mostly blind. Never saw the original musical, only listened to one song, and avoided all the trailers. The song "Paciencia y Fe" hit me like a ton of bricks. The abuela's story, her struggles, I've heard it told from many people in my family throughout my life. I think what broke me most was when she took the stairs instead of the ramp. Hardworking until the end.

    I made it through, I survived,…

    Honestly, I could have just watched 2.5 hours of Chris Pine discovering the 80’s and it would have been better than this film.

    SoulΒ is the love child of Coco and Inside Out with a dash of existentialism and jazz.Β 

    Also here’s a La La Land reference for good measure:Β 

    Joe Gardener thinks he’s really cute in his polyester suit, wait no it’s wool

    P.S. it was really cool how Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross played around with their score. If anyone noticed, they used upbeat and sometimes mellow jazz during the scenes on Earth and more electronic music during the scenes in The Great Before (the land of soul). 10/10 use of music and parallels.Β 

    P.P.S. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! πŸŽ„
