    Where the Crawdads Sing

    ★★★★

    so beautifully done. it’s been a few years since i’ve read the book, so the ending was a shock to me all over again & it was wonderful. 2022 has done it right with movies so far and i’m so glad theaters are open again so that these movies can be experienced the way they deserve. a truly heartbreaking and beautiful film full of all the things that make a person feel something

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    phenomenal. i mean, truly, truly phenomenal. i only just watched Top Gun for the first time last night & figured i should go watch Top Gun: Maverick before it was out of theaters and my expectations were high given the ratings i’ve seen but the movie…it exceeded those expectations far beyond what i thought capable (these are not my kind of movies usually). i had no idea what Top Gun was about before this time last night and now i’m a…

  • Moonrise Kingdom

    Moonrise Kingdom

    ★★★★½

    “what happened?” 
    “she left her binoculars on a hook in the chapel tent.”
    “just leave ‘em!” 
    “we can’t. it’s her magic power!” 

    oh absolutely. i loved every second of this film. my second favorite Wes Anderson movie, just slightly below Fantastic Mr. Fox. i really enjoyed the story and the journey Moonrise Kingdom takes you on. i never know what to expect with Anderson and i like that a lot. his movies never turn out to be what i anticipated…

    Paddington 2

    ★★★★★

    every ounce as lovely and spectacular as everyone claims. the ending of Paddington 2 may be my favorite ending to any movie ever and there was no stopping my tears. the thoughtful story + the visuals = so very Wes Anderson-esque. an immediate favorite. i’ll proclaim it to the world: I LOVE PADDINGTON BEAR <3

  • The Breakfast Club

    The Breakfast Club

    ★★★★½

    “it’s sushi.” 
    “sushi?” 
    “rice, raw fish, and seaweed.” 
    “you won’t accept a guy’s tongue in your mouth but you’re gonna eat that?” 
    “can i eat?” 
    “i don’t know. give it a try.” 
    the lunch scene is one of my favorites in all of cinematic history. i am a The Breakfast Club bitch through and through

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★½

    take a shot every time ‘Nicolas Cage’ is said in the film & you’ll be blackout drunk by the half hour mark. it’s a 107 minute love letter from Nic Cage to Nic Cage and, i mean, i get it. Nic Cage rocks! he is one of the very, very few actors who can make a movie like this and pull it off imo. i <3 Nicolas Cage. 
    & at the very least the film made me want to get Paddington 2 off my watchlist asap no rocky

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

    Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

    ★★

    the most filler movie i’ve ever seen in my life. if there was the potential for this to be the last one of the franchise (probably for the best though i almost want another just so there’s a more concrete conclusion) you think there would have been a somewhat better wrap up to the whole Grindlewald business. David Yates, you directed my favorite Harry Potter movies, but this? filler garbage. you’re better than this.
