    you saved my life

    okay there are obviously a lot of things i can talk about here but the one im going to choose is his handwriting. his handwriting!! when he wrote his name across the whiteboard all big and in like, tech deck sticker font, that really sealed the deal for me. i cant explain it, but riz ahmed knew his character and truly delivered a fantastic performance.

    ★★½

    “what was that called?”
    because of winn dixie
    who the hell is winn dixie what did he have to do with it?”

    i watched this with my little brother and my grandparents and my grandpa has rapidly declining dementia and can’t stop talking about this. he keeps asking what it was called and then goes “so good, so sad” and then yells and asks us what it was called again lol. but every time he asks he only has the highest praises for it. so 10/10 rating from the man who doesn’t know who winn dixie is

  • White God

    White God

    ★★½

    i definitely can see why someone would love this movie, but it is also very apparent as to why someone would hate it. the music, the trumpet especially (how it made me miss my trumpet), was beautiful. the framing was also largely well done. but i really could not sit and watch all those animals get slaughtered. it felt like i was watching one of those activist videos that make you want to go vegetarian. overall that aspect which the experience for me.

  • Black Swan

    ★★★★

    one of the greatest joys in life is identifying the true source of a meme. so when miss natalie walked into the bathroom to wipe the word WHORE off of the mirror, i lost it. (to say i was freaking out about this movie from the start would be an understatement). the other greatest joy in life is natalie portman. i am still not over everything she did for this role. okayy miss harvard‼️ 

    i don’t have to tell you…

    ★★★

    i’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, but i can’t say i loved it. scorsese did a great job - screentime was used well and the scenes were aesthetically pleasing. but i couldn’t get over the character. whyd u have to gaslight everyone bro😭 i hate when people who think the rules don’t apply to them get their way. shape up

    what are you doing here
    i heard the piano

    (okay la la land who?????)

    very beautifully shot, i was mesmerized the whole time. the snow scene was the very best of all, and has earned a place on my bedroom wall. however, there was no need for this to be 3 hours. so to that, i say what the hell

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    is the epilogue supposed to cover one night? because if it is, that means that mia inadvertently attended the opening night of sebastian's jazz club, despite the fact that he failed to make it to the premiere of her show earlier in the movie. not sure what this means, but i am in so much pain.

  • Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead

    Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead

    ★★½

    cute and funny. not sure why this is the title though. the movie spent maybe 3 minutes on the babysitter being dead, so it felt like the least of their concerns. may i suggest a new title: don't tell my boss i am 17

  • Spring Breakers

    Spring Breakers

    ★★½

    right before watching i was like, hm, how can a movie possibly have the same number of half star ratings as five star ratings?? and then i watched it and was like, oh...

    spring breakers was so trashy. like, grossly trashy. i almost turned it off trashy. i felt myself age during the first 30 minutes because it was so painful to watch kind of trashy. i quickly tired of the cursing. i tired of the boobs (it was very…
