  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★

    something was very off here for me. i love rosamund pike, especially when she's playing a manipulative lesbian disaster (her second go at the role since gone girl ;)) but the rest of this film was boring, and may have bitten off more than it could chew.

  • Insidious: Chapter 2

    Insidious: Chapter 2

    ★★

    two stars are for leigh whannell in this movie 🥺💕

  • Friday the 13th

    Friday the 13th

    ★★

    this is so boring. it doesn't help that the only trait of this group of teenagers is their undying whiteness. they are literally the WHITEST people in the history of horror films, and i'm not talking pale. i get that this is a cult classic but i seriously think you can skip it. these two stars are for kevin bacon and kevin bacon's 80's hair. goodnight.

  • Fifty Shades Darker

    Fifty Shades Darker

    those balls look like they should be mini fushigis, if u know u know

  • Eli

    Eli

    yeah, this definitely lost some luster on the second watch through. my little brother didn't like it at all. i can't deny that while the ending is still super cool and eli is a badass, the entire story was very obviously disjointed and nonsensical upon reviewing. darn. this movie really needed some james wan writing and directing...

  • Afterschool

    Afterschool

    ★★

    why is nobody asking why ezra miller can play a budding sociopath so well????????

  • Fifty Shades Darker

    Fifty Shades Darker

    ★★

    it makes so much sense that this was originally a twilight fanfiction 👁👄👁

  • Insurgent

    Insurgent

    person: hey do you wanna watch insurgent (2015)?
    me: youtu.be/YqjgVTAdK9w

  • C.O.G.

    C.O.G.

    ★★

    i watched about an hour of this which means i was over halfway through the entire story and i still felt like absolutely nothing had happened and there was no ending in sight. they were smart to cast jonathan groff in this, though, he was the only thing that made me hang in for as long as i did! 😌👏🏻

  • Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    i've seen so many good reviews of this lately that i'm gonna rewatch this tonight and see if i can change my rating: updates to come 😌


    y'know... they tried. they tried really, really hard! but i can't say they succeeded 😔✊🏻 this is gonna stay 2 stars for now.

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★

    if this is what it takes to salvage relationships—being stuck underground with an estranged relative and a bunch of alligators—i'll pass 😌

  • The Kindergarten Teacher

    The Kindergarten Teacher

    ★★

    i know many like this film, and found the subject to be very interesting. i wish i felt that way, but to me this film felt pretentious, overreaching, and without a point. it tries to seem deep, but falls flat when a teacher's seemingly good intentions have a very selfish and overbearing undertone. the performances in this film are great, and i can see where this film wanted to go—it just didn't quite get there for me.
