    Lemonade 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 Nov, 2016

    "My grandma said nothing real can be threatened."

    I feel like I could just post a long series of quotes that would express my fascination with Lemonade. The line above keeps coming back to my mind, and sums up a number of important themes in Lemonade.

    I'm just going to plan to re-watch Lemonade soon. Maybe then I'll come up with some coherent thoughts other than, "How could a glorified music video touch me so deeply?"

  • Room 237

    Room 237 2012

    ★★½ Watched 24 Oct, 2016

    I've never enjoyed a superhero movie more than this. While a superhero's abilities often separate him/her from the average person, this film makes the superheroes into a type of everyman. They are more easy to relate to than characters such as Superman or even Captain America.

    The casting, the special effects, the writing, the tone, everything about this film worked extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to friends--even if they are not into science fiction or superheroes.
