  • She's the Man

    She's the Man

    ★★★

    this could’ve been a true cult classic if like one gay person were involved in production

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★

    "I AM AWAKE IN THE PLACE WHERE WOMEN DIE." -- Jenny Holzer

    been thinking about what to write about this one for the past couple of weeks. i can see why some hate it and why some love it, and after hours of reflection i've come to the earth-shattering conclusion that... i liked it!

    the title "promising young woman" itself is a reference to how the media called rapist brock turner a "promising young man." many know brock turner, but…

  • It's a Wonderful Life

    It's a Wonderful Life

    ★★★★½

    beautiful film about the true core of morality, the importance of community care, and being so in love that you dance into a swimming pool! hmmm what is there to say about this classic that hasn’t been said before ... well, here’s something: i wish the title didn’t transport me directly into a mid-2000s trailer for an animated movie. been wriggling around the apartment singing “it’s a wonderful life you gotta take it from me it’s a wonderful life come on and break it on down” and my roommates have to spray me with a water bottle

  • Home Alone

    Home Alone

    at least the probability of this happening is at a record low this year

  • Cosmopolis

    Cosmopolis

    ★★★

    The Official ROBsessed Thirst-Watching Guide

    CHAPTER 4: COSMOPOLIS (2012)
    a young billionaire with a razor-sharp jawline played by robert pattinson broods in a luxury vehicle as his faithful butler drives him across the crime-stricken city. cronenberg's prophetic interpretation of The Batman tries to say so much but ends up saying almost nothing at all. and honestly? i can relate to that ..

    THIRST WATCH RANKING:
    ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ ½ -- 4.5/5
    dammit, another ROBsessed essential! he's got slicked back…

  • Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

    Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

    it’s canon that santa grew a beard because he was an outlaw wanted dead or alive by a nazi-adjacent dictator. remember this always

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

    easily the highlight of the station formerly known as abc family’s 25 Days of Christmas. watched on my parents’ xfinity and discovered it hits harder with intermittent fades to commercial. sick and twisted. also the grinch’s heart growing three sizes is body horror

  • The Great Gatsby

    The Great Gatsby

    ★★★

    GATSBI XCX: 🎶i only threw this party 4 u, only threw this party 4 u 4 u 4 u — i was hoping you would come through, i was hoping you would come through (it’s true, it’s true)🎶

  • Ratatoing

    Ratatoing

    yeah yeah i made my friends watch ratatoing with me for my birthday. keep scrolling

  • Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical

    Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical

    was trying to hate-watch the benedict cumberbatch grinch and somehow stumbled upon something far more sinister

  • Bridget Jones's Diary

    Bridget Jones's Diary

    ★★★★

    my favorite christmas movie because it includes all the best yuletide traditions! reindeer sweaters 🦌👕 kissing in the snow 💋❄️ two dashing englishmen engaging in physical combat for the love of a woman 🤼‍♂️❤️

  • The Muppet Christmas Carol

    The Muppet Christmas Carol

    ★★★★

    people keep accusing me of cheating on roddy the rat from flushed away with rizzo the rat and i want to clear some things up: my newfound love for rizzo is PLATONIC and does NOT dilute my love for roddy. women and rats can just be friends. GROW UP
