  • It Chapter Two

    It Chapter Two

    ★★★½

    “if you believe it does”

    a lot like the first one in tone to a fault, the patterns growing a little old. it feels less impactful this time around. but still so well made and genuinely scary (also, i cried) so i can’t be too critical

  • Vita & Virginia

    Vita & Virginia

    ★★★½

    “you have as much of me as i have to give”

    hypnotic, but still too inaccessible. still, i can’t fault it much because it’s so uniquely well made compared to most films in this sub genre. the score especially breathes life into every scene, and elizabeth and gemma bring some of their best performances to the table. this is either going to grow on me exponentially, or it’ll sour and drift away. only time will tell

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★★½

    effy stonem swimming away from alligators during a hurricane did more for me than midsommar... life is full of surprises, truly

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    i waited the whole movie for left hand free to play before my friend reminded me that it played during a scene in civil war, not homecoming. honk honk 🤡

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★½

    i still cannot get over the fact that scarlett johansson, who is worth $140 million dollars, got paid to make and eat a peanut butter sandwich on white bread in this movie. i CANNOT get over this. A PLAIN PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICH. and she tries to share this one sandwich with steve, and then scott eats it later in the scene. IS THIS ALL THE FOOD THEY HAVE IN THE AVENGERS HEADQUARTERS? A BILLION DOLLAR BUILDING AND ALL SHE HAS IS PEANUT BUTTER AND A LOAF OF BREAD? ENOUGH

  • Aniara

    Aniara

    ★★★½

    high life meets snowpiercer meets synecdoche new york. none of that means anything but the most important thing about me seeing this was that today was my birthday and when i asked my friends if we could drive an hour away to see it they were more than happy to endure the existential swedish space sadness for me. skål!

  • Gloria Bell

    Gloria Bell

    ★★★½

    “well, when the world blows up, i hope i go down dancing”

    sebastián lelio is so especially good at these slice of life pieces, this is so melancholy that it almost feels like a documentary

  • Gone with the Wind

    Gone with the Wind

    ★★★½

    here’s my review: not gay enough

  • Greta

    Greta

    ★★★½

    [olivia colman voice] oooo it’s genuinely quite stressful

  • Happy Death Day 2U

    Happy Death Day 2U

    every other movie about time loops and parallel universes wish they could have what this has... this series makes me so HAPPY, no pun intended
