  • 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…

  • 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

    ★★★★½

    voldemort is hot as FUCK

  • Twin Peaks

    Twin Peaks

    ★★★★½

    i love Agent Dale Cooper & his love for black coffee, jelly donuts, and huckleberry pie <3 would love to understand the show someday also. 
    i’ve discovered through Twin Peaks that i really like David Lynch’s directing style. it’s so frustratingly unpredictable. predictably unpredictable, as i like to put it. truly a masterpiece. minus half a star because i hated Leo Johnson so much. couldn’t hardly watch the show because of my hatred for him. a devastatingly wonderful show

  • Charlie's Angels

    Charlie's Angels

    ★★★★½

    KRISTEN STEWART I LOVE YOU
    the effie trinket finnick odair reunion we didn’t know we needed. i think i enjoyed this adaptation a little better than the original except for the fact that noah centipede is in it. minus half a star for that & i will be pretending like he didn’t ruin the ending by being in it lmao. a really great film with quite a bit of twists. once again, kristen stewart i love you

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    ★★★★½

    so visually pleasing. i was never bored and i really liked the end scene where they danced in the supermarket. i was taken aback by dumbledore being the voice of Bean lol. overall a really fun movie that i will watch again sometime

  • Napoleon Dynamite

    Napoleon Dynamite

    ★★★★½

    truly never gets old. i love the fever dream that this movie is so much; every scene is a masterpiece. jon heder is one of my favorite comedic actors ever. iconic looks, killer dance moves, classic songs. what’s not to love?

  • The Game

    The Game

    ★★★★½

    i watched this again for the 4th or 5th time & it still holds as one of my favorite movies of all time. is it perfect, without a flaw, the cinematography immaculate? no. but did it have me on the edge of my seat with every new development, wondering what crazy scenario was next? absolutely. and the least i can say about the ending is that i audibly gasped for a solid 4 minutes while watching it all unravel. i had…

  • What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    so heartwarming and heartbreaking. it was a struggle to think properly after watching What's Eating Gilbert Grape because it makes you wonder about life and the simplicity of it all that humans have turned into a chore. this movie reminds you that sometimes it’s okay to just enjoy things and to live your life how you want.

    Booksmart

    a cool take on the worn and overdone coming of age movie genre. LGBTQ+ representation is always a plus. a movie i watch over and over again quite a bit.
