    "And God help you if you use voice-over in your work, my friends. God help you! That's flaccid, sloppy writing. Any idiot can write voice-over narration to explain the thoughts of the character." - from Adaptation (2002)


    Oh boy where do we start... from the narrator I guess. So narration in movies mostly doesn't work for me or in most cases I don't care about it but the narration in this one annoyed me so much like the narrator spelled…

    The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world that M. Night Shyamalan was a good director.

    My highest rated directors - #71 M. Night Shyamalan (5.33)

    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

    ★★★★

    You can see this was shot by Deakins by the first frame in the movie, I mean it's just an amazing looking movie. The cast is stacked, Brad Pitt has never been more scary than in that last act filled with tension. Sam Rockwell is also great as usual and Casey Affleck sells that fanboy energy. I was never bored but some scenes were incoherent to the plot and I got confused with timelines a few times. I also really…

    ★★★★½

    One of the most entertaining silent films I've seen so far, Harold Lloyd is just awesome and his screen presence is always felt. The running to the wedding scene was maybe too long, I zooned out during it but everything else worked perfectly for me. It kinda reminded of The Graduate in a lot of ways, especially with that ending.

    Probably the best movie of this year. I was on the edge of my seat through the whole movie. Acting is so natural and trailer didn't reveal anything to me and I'm grateful for that. This is another Korean masterpiece and it reminds me a little of Oldboy. It is shame that I had to watch it online because they aren't showing it in my cinema.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★½

    The movie started really great, I really loved the dialogue in the car and every little weird situation. Then everything else I didn't like, I didn't vibe with the rest of the film at all. I wish Kaufman explained a little more of it or mabye I would prefer a movie with the actual plot. The ending was extra confusing and nonsensical. It has the same problem as Tenet for me, I think both directors went too far and made…
