    ppl talk about how hilarious this movie is, but they fail to mention how depressing it is lol. Great movie all around, but this was completely not what I was expecting. Glad I watched

    ★★★½

    Award for best cinematography was deserved in my opinion, but everything else was pretty average. I liked how the story was easy to follow, I’ve struggled with war movies a lot in the past simply because they don’t interest me as much.

    A LOT happens in such a short amount of time, it felt too eventful to be believable/genuine. Certainly didn’t hate this movie though

    Whoopsie forgot to log. Yet another gut punch by my ol trusty pal Bergman. How could one man be so good at making you feel this much despair through a tv screen. His ability to interpret emotions through film was INSANE

    Okay OOF I actually kind of loved this. I would say this was a great directorial debut for jonah hill.

    Now, if you knew me personally you’d know that I would put my life on the line ANY DAY OF THE WEEK for mr Michael👏🏻Trent👏🏻Reznor👏🏻 bc he is my absolute favorite artist..... I completely forgot that he and Atticus Ross composed the film score and my night instantly got better. I was sad that I hadn’t watched this sooner.

    AND…

  • Double Indemnity

    Double Indemnity

    ★★★★½

    Take a shot every time they mention Medford, Oregon (my hometown wooooo)

    I thought this was amazing. The writing was spot on, Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray both had great performances, the story was sPiCy, everything about it was outstanding. Loved it

  • Cam

    Cam

    ★★★

    After watching Viva I decided I missed seeing Samantha Robinson on the screen but I also wanted to watch a movie I hadn’t seen before, so I chose Cam! Interesting story but not quite my taste. I like my movies to be completely outrageous and this felt like something I’ve seen before. Definitely didn’t hate it, I just wish it was a little more mind blowing
