    The Commuter

    ★★★★

    NONSTOP + CELLULAR + A Train = I really really loved this movie. Also those ending credits were beautiful. I’d see this again in a heartbeat, Jaume Collet-Serra rules, we should talk about him more.

    Also great use of Chekhov’s guitar. You see a guitar in the first act, you know Liam Neeson is going to break it over someone’s head later on.

  • Phantom Thread

    I feel unequipped to give this a rating. It’s gorgeously made, but watching it was an unpleasant experience for me personally. I resented them both, and maybe that was the intent. Either way, my broken heart and my broken head can’t handle stories like this. I’m alone and eating spaghetti at a bar. 

    Maybe I prefer Paul WS Anderson and America’s Next Top Model. Maybe I’d have a different experience rewatching it, already knowing the ending. Ugly love and all. 

    0 stars, no one ate spaghetti in this movie.

    ★★★

    Alamo Drafthouse New Mission, theater 5! I love theater 5!

    Had Raw been released when I was 14 years old and first developing my relationship with horror, this would have been huge for me. Girls in college, cannibalism, death, France. But coming to it now, as my current me, I find this film frustrating. The imagery is fantastic, but tonally Raw is all over, never settling on a stride, and there's so many themes I'm not sure what to focus…

  • The Big Sick

    The Big Sick

    ★★★

    I saw this with my mom. It was a good see it with your mom kinda movie, except the part where he put on The Abominable Dr. Phibes and my mom leaned over to me and said, "ooh, you should date him!" and I had to stifle a panic attack. 

    Also why do all Apatow productions feel ENDLESS.
