    Fanny and Alexander

    ★★★★★

    This is such a warm and comforting visual experience especially in the beginning, it intimately helps tell this story that is also very personal as it examines the dynamics of family. In many ways it feels similar to being a child because it details so many things that most children do. This is also partially because the film is trying to portray itself from the lens of a child at least part of the time. It also bounces around though…

    ★★★★★

    My 1000th logged film and a very fitting one as well because I loved it. 

    “Shame-the feeling that will save mankind”

    Tarkovsky’s Sci-fi answer to Kubrick’s 2001, which he called cold and sterile. The two films while having some similarities-are definitely different in many ways as well, both revolve around space exploration to an extent and feature stunning visuals as well as ambiguous parts. The compositions and shots that are found in Solaris are some of the most brilliant I’ve…

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    Top Gun Maverick features a much stronger story with more powerful emotional development, I loved all the characters standouts were rooster and hangman. The action and practical effects are also great and create a lot of intense moments especially in the back half of the film. I thought a few scenes in the back half were a bit rushed along with the ending and I wish we could’ve had some more scenes between rooster and maverick but it’s overall a great film that surpasses the first film in most ways. An intense joy ride that packs a punch, Tom Cruise soars.

    ★★★½

    I thought the direction and look of the film was better than I was expecting it to be but some of the acting and dialogue was mediocre and at times cheesy. It still is a fun and fast film but I also thought the story and relationships could’ve used some more development, felt similar to point break which I liked although I prefer that film. Excited for the sequel though, Tom cruise and rest of the cast were pretty good and charismatic despite a few awkward deliveries.

    Swallow

    ★★★

    An interesting color palette and visuals are possibly the strong point of the film. Right from the beginning you get this sense that something is off and it feels very eerie. Once the actual plot starts I found myself cringing a lot whenever she would eat things. It’s pretty weird and a little disturbing. I’m not exactly where the film thought it was going by the end but I was still intrigued although the actual end feels pretty static and…

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    Soul is a mesmerizing experience about living and loving. It tells a heartwarming story that is full of the beauty of life as well as the search for purpose. This is a beautiful film to look at with its stunning and creative visuals. I also really loved the score and all of the jazz that’s was incorporated throughout the film really helped immerse me in the world. I was maybe a little surprised at how much I connected with this…
