  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    Somehow a movie with a talking cat is literally my favourite movie of last year...
    Nine Lives still did it better

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    We're more concerned about who we appear to be than who we are. That's just a fact. I do it, you do it. That's just how we roll.
    But it's our soul, our purpose that really matters. Our purpose isn't what we do, it's not who we aspire to be. Our purpose is us. Our purpose is life.

  • The Great Escape

    The Great Escape

    ★★★★½

    While the pacing of the first two acts transitioning into the third is a little awkward, this is still one of the greatest movies the 60s has to offer.
    And while the pacing of all three acts together may not work at times, the individual pacing of those acts is immaculate.
    It builds plot and character seamlessly together as the narrative unfolds and culminates in a finale that kept me interested and guessing.
    Honestly, I don't know why people sleep on this movie so much...
    alright now on to Chicken Run

  • If Anything Happens I Love You

    If Anything Happens I Love You

    ★★★★½

    I sank lower and lower into my chair until I was left flat on my back staring up into the abyss of a black screen. The emotions, the blame, the guilt can never be understood by many. We can only try to imagine how broken they feel. And knowing a person affected by this brought me back in a way I certainly wasn't expecting or wanting. But it was necessary. My heart, my prayers, my tears go out to anyone…

  • The Queen's Gambit

    The Queen's Gambit

    ★★★★½

    The Queen's Gambit is a mini-series that I highly encourage any individual to watch. And that is coming from a person who has been surrounded by groups and herds of people who beg me to play a game of chess with them... but I often refuse because it's just not my thing.
    But not only did this piece of film exploit my love for chess that I hadn't had the slightest clue of it being there. It presented me with…

  • Blindspotting

    Blindspotting

    ★★★★½

    "...the one that going dummy never felt the need to run, but I've been sprintin' till I limp across the finish with a gun! Up in my blind spot, really! Ain't to hard to figure that you probably never really felt the pressure of a nigga, but you know what? I ain't never felt the pressures of a trigger! The difference between me and you is... I ain't no killer..."

    That final scene just may be the most powerful exploitation of discrimination amongst individuals who live in this modern-day world. I can't stress it enough how profound and important this film is.

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★★½

    Somehow at a 4 1/2, I still think I'm this movie's biggest fan...

  • Modern Times

    Modern Times

    ★★★★½

    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.

  • Kung Fu Panda 2

    Kung Fu Panda 2

    ★★★★½

    "your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn't make you who you are. It is the rest of your story, who you choose to be..."

    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…

  • Over the Garden Wall

    Over the Garden Wall

    ★★★★½

    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…

  • Avatar Spirits

    Avatar Spirits

    ★★★★½

    Guess I should review this considering that people consider it to be a pretty big thing that I haven't seen ALTA until now. And yeah dude it's great.
    Of course, the cynical nitpicky loser side of myself came out and really had trouble getting into it (especially the first 15 episodes). But what I've come to realize over time is that this show (at least to me) became better and better over time to understand the foresight the creators had…

  • Princess Mononoke

    Princess Mononoke

    ★★★★½

    My preconceived notions about this went as far as Spirited Away just cause I had no outside sources to help me what to expect. But all it took was for a guy to get decapitated and I was so on board after that!
    Dare I say this is more beautifully animated than other Miyazaki films? Idk. All I can say is this is some of the best choreographed and engaging action sequences I've seen in an animated film.
