    An absolute stunner. I was expecting to like this given the buzz and the directors previous work but God damn, what a film. And such a beautiful way to pay tribute to such an iconic, wonderful but ultimately tragic figure like Diane. Larrain finds a way to display such a wide range of her personality and emotions over the course of Christmas Eve, Christmas and Boxing Day. He had such an unconventional approach to biopics that makes them feel like…

    Ran is a movie I've had on my watchlist for years and years. All the stills and clips of it made it look positively incredible. I put it off forever for one reason or another. It's pretty long. I'm very green to Kurosawa. It was kind of difficult to find a decent copy of it on streaming for a bit. Whatever excuses I can make for not seeing this movie when I first learned about it I'm gonna make cause…

    ★★★★

    Don't know why I've been depriving myself of one of the best animated movies last decade but better late than never. What a delight of a movie. Incredible animation matched by an equally talented voice cast. It tells a western story that feels both classic but also slightly subversive, enough to keep it feelings like a bunch of cliches smashed together. I also appreciated how little this movie made an effort to appeal to children. I'm shocked this was given…

    ★★

    An imaginative and fun concept wasted on lackluster comedy and a shitty script. I think Paddington has set too high of a standard for kids movie so I see this movie in a much harsher light than I would otherwise. All I can think about is how great this would have been if it actually had a decently clever script and actually interesting direction like that film has. I know holding it every kids movie to that standard isn't necessarily fair but when you've seen how good family movies can be, it's hard to not expect more than this.

    ★★★

    Honestly enjoyed the hell out of that. It hits all the sort of notes I want with a Scream movie, has great humor and gore plus I actually find myself enjoying the new cast a lot. Sure, it's dumb, sometimes on purpose bur sometimes not, and the dialogue is pretty awful sometimes and the acting varies wildly scene to scene but the movie rarely asks you to take it seriously so when that would bother me in a more self-serious…

    ★★★★½

    This was probably the most emotional movie experience I've had in years. I felt so washed over and overwhelmed by just about everything in this movie. The movie that was created here felt like it was crafted for me. Not in a pandering way but in a way where it speaks to me on such a fundamental, deep and enveloping level that the only thing that makes sense to me is that this movie manifested as a result of my…
