    The Dark Crystal

    ★★★★★

    absolute masterpiece. scary af, even as an adult! nothing truly like it made before or since. i've heard the 2019 prequel series is good, can't wait to scope it. but the original is just so...unbelievable. i imagine making it was very challenging & fun

  • Trading Places

    Trading Places

    ★★½

    whoo boy. "dated" does not begin to describe some of the problematic aspects of this film, including a scene of Dan Akroyd in fucking BLACKFACE which i did not know existed until it happened. that being said, i know this film jumpstarted both Eddie Murphy & Jamie Lee Curtis's careers, and there are some genuinely funny moments. whole premise is pretty fucked tho & casual dropping of n word from old white dudes to show they are racist is like... almost intolerable to watch. glad i watched will never watch again

  • The Matrix Revolutions

    The Matrix Revolutions

    somehow worse than matrix 2 & matrix 4 which is saying A LOT

    but also somehow not as bad as i remember in theaters

  • The Matrix Reloaded

    The Matrix Reloaded

    it's like...bad. i rewatched the whole trilogy after matrix 4 & it's almost completely garbage. some thoughts:

    * neo fighting hundreds of agent smiths...it cuts back & forth from live action to CGI & the CGI looks REALLY BAD. n64 fight scene
    * the uh...weird af matrix code vagina scene. wtf??? why. just why. such poor taste
    * if neo can do literally anything why are there fights?
    * causing someone's heart to beat from within would not negate the effects of a gunshot wound

  • Being the Ricardos

    Being the Ricardos

    ★★★½

    pretty sorkin-y and yes bardem doesn't phsyically resemble desi, but i thought this movie was pretty interesting overall. a little gimmicky condensing events into 1 week & the fake hoover phone call but, i enjoyed the watch and it made me think a lot about the entertainment industry. worth a watch but will not blow yr mind. lastly, nicole kidman was a surprisingly good lucille ball in my humble opinion

  • The Matrix

    The Matrix

    ★★★★

    it's honestly so great, and rewatching it after watching depressing matrix 4 is like....wow. what an amazing original idea that they milked dry as a cow's carcass huh

  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★

    ★★★★

    as one friend put it "it's basically porn" (they weren't wrong)

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    ★★½

    an accurate commentary on how truly self obsessed & media obsessed our society is, but i felt it was just a little...too...winking at itself? star studded? i think the adam mckay stylization is getting a little old. in the end i thought it was just ok

  • The Sparks Brothers

    The Sparks Brothers

    ★★★

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★

    stellen was good. a few others were good. cute pouting boy annoying af. overall just an ok movie that was highly overrated, imho. i feel like at least the lynch one was weird as hell. this one was too "marvel"ous for me
