    i wasn’t sure if i should rate this 4.5 or 5 stars, but 5 stars it is, SCREW IT! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS. EVERY SECOND OF IT. 
    the main reason why i watched this was because of the upcoming netflix film, and since i likely won’t have the time to the read the book before the new movie comes out, i figured i should at least check out the first adaptation directed by no other than alfred hitchcock himself.

    ★★★★

    am i a real cinephile now?
    i watched this last night, gave it some thought, and rewatched it today (in hopes of not falling asleep again even though i really was tired last night). and what can i say? i get it, but at the same time, i don’t get it.
    i think the main “issue” with citizen kane is that because it’s often hailed as the greatest or the best movie ever made, it’s impossible to watch without having,…

    oh how the turn tables

    my second fincher film and i’m just as speechless as i was after seeing the first one, if not more. i’m honestly just awestruck and at a loss for words, and i’ve been sitting here thinking about how i feel about this film, but all i can do is let out a laugh and shake my head in awe and disbelief. 

    a product of fincher’s unparalleled precision, gone girl spellbindingly combines a relentless narrative with masterful execution. it is a…

    ★★★★

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS!!!!!!!!
    fun, spicy, refreshing, heartfelt, thought-provoking and visually stunning, kajillionaire is a much needed film in 2020. i was drawn in right from the opening frame that simply bursts with character and color, much like the film itself. as we follow the main character, or old dolio, through her life, we explore her relationships with others, namely her parents, through her struggles and adventures, and probably most of all, we get a glimpse into her unique personality and identity. 

    what at first…

    Lost in Translation

    ★★★★

    another movie that has been on my watchlist way too long! i mainly watched this because of the recent release of on the rocks; i figured i should probably check out sofia coppola’s most renowned film before seeing her latest. 

    every once in a while, i watch a movie that, as cheesy as it sounds, makes me want to tell stories and make films, and lost in translation is one of them. something about its rawness and simplicity, which in turn…

    On the Rocks

    ★★★

    where do i begin? after seeing the average rating on here, i decided not to get my hopes up, and unfortunately, on the rocks, one of my more anticipated movies of 2020, leaves me feeling empty. 
    although the premise in and of itself, while simple, sounds fun, the execution falls flat in some ways. as a consequence, the setting of the film, which already didn’t speak to me that much personally, hardly kept me engaged through its relatively short runtime. 

    my…
