  • A Star Is Born

    A Star Is Born

    ★★

    best picture showcase: film #8

    “maybe i fucking failed you”

    i just can’t do it, i can’t take this seriously anymore. the first act is so exciting and the movie definitely peaks when they perform “shallow”, but for me it takes a complete nose dive after that. jackson’s character is such a mess and it’s incredibly off putting, and honestly i don’t care if that was the whole point anymore. it’s just too long and doesn’t work for me as a melodrama. i’m really happy for people that connect with this, but i’m over it

  • At Eternity's Gate

    At Eternity's Gate

    ★★

    “painted reality is it’s own reality”

    i can appreciate what this is going for, but i don’t vibe with it at all. if i was to compare them, loving vincent was a lot more for me, but i can say that willem dafoe was born to play van gogh. he didn’t let us down

  • The Santa Clause

    The Santa Clause

    ★★

    when my 4 year old niece just said “i did like it but it wasn’t very good” she really deconstructed film criticism in one fell swoop

  • Golden Exits

    Golden Exits

    ★★

    “desire. that’s a novel concept”

    5 minutes in and i could already tell i wouldn’t like this but the scene where lily rabe wears a flannel shirt really made it all feel worthwhile somehow. i’ve said this before and i’ll say it again: she should be in everything. lily rabe i would give it all up for you
