    Mary Queen of Scots

    ★★★

    this movie should be a perfect movie but instead it has weird pacing and timing things (it's symbolic? a metaphor?) and it uses marginalized identities as a dummy to demonstrate compassion on while also depicting brutal (tear-jerking! heart-wrenching! eye-opening!) scenes of violence through,, for the sake of the big characters' actual plots. maybe i'm just grumpy because i don't understand mpaa ratings and i don't know why this was rated r (shoutout ticket kid at amc 12,, ur my boy)…

  • Hearts Beat Loud

    Hearts Beat Loud

    ★★½

    the score (including corny father-daughter band songs required by the plot) is so gorgeous it makes a lot of otherwise unpalatable scenes kind of compelling, but in gen i think i sort of found this whole movie insulting somehow. like we can talk abt ~~trendy hipster dad who isn't ron swanson~~ literally explaining animal collective to toni collette or we can not talk about it but at the end of the day it happens and i'm not okay with that.
