the hardest thing i've had to do is love myself
but the easiest thing i've had to do is love this movie
The funniest part about watching this (that's not really saying much though cause it's a movie about a single dad's daughter gone missing) was watching it with my friend who guessed literally every plot-point bang on perfect.
I had already seen it prior to today and she knew more than me!!!!
Someone explain to me how she's so smart or how I'm so dumb...
My teacher assigned me to watch a movie based in the 20th century that I hadn't seen before. Granted there are many, many that I have yet to see, but I wasn't going to give up the opportunity to finally watch a Charlie Chaplin film.
And many people say that actions speak louder than words... but I beg to differ because by the end of this I found myself holding up 4 pages of notes with the subtleties and nuances I noticed.
Please do yourself a favour and experience some culture for once.

This is my ultimate comfort movie. When I'm having a really rough time in my life I feel that this will always be able to be a purposeful path to learning more in those dark times.
It's really the ultimate story about coping with pain, how you not only don't need…

Only reason I watched this is to watch the second one.
But regardless it has some of the best 'By-Gone Gym' moments in any animated movie, and possible any movie in general. And for those of you who don't know; a 'By-Gone Gym' moment is a piece of advice or quote that conveys meaning anyone can take away from.
And who better than to deliver that than Master Oogway.
I seriously can't wait for the second one though...
Dude, it's been a while since I've watched a movie for enjoyment. It feels kinda weird honestly.
And yeah Erin Brockovich is a fun time. I didn't necessarily gel with one half of the split narrative as the other, but regardless, it has fantastic performances, writing, and direction. Where it falls short for me in terms of anything deeper than the surface level watch (themes metaphors, symbols etc.). Furthermore, this is a film I was captivated by in certain moments,…
Sorry, all! School just ain't slowing down anytime soon. Further meaning that I haven't been able to watch anything or really do anything that I would normally.
However, I am working on The Social Network video essay per your request and it's going to be good, so hold tight.
I'm going to keep this review pretty tame and short because of just how ambitious this piece of work is; in no way could I do it justice with my comprehension…
"don't try to understand it. feel it"
NAH fam I gotta understand it!
Dude all I've been hearing is how this film is too complex for its own good, and how the character work sucks, and how bad the sound mixing is (although you are correct on that one). If I'm being honest it almost feels cool to dislike this. And I was in the same boat on the first watch but DUDE! I'm telling you now that a rewatch…
Watched it with my friend hoping he'd enjoy it, but was sorely disappointed when he just thought it was okay... it was heartbreaking ngl.
But I seriously can't get over how ferocious and intimidating this film is. It is an unstoppable force that does no hold back until the film is finished, and even then it just puts you in a seat of awe for how amazing it is. I really hate to say it because I'm always of the…
