    Becoming Jane

    ★★★

    Whose quote is it? Jane Austen vs. Cher edition:

    “My mom said to me, 'You know sweetheart, one day you should settle down and marry a rich man. And I said, 'Mom, I am a rich man.'"

    Greta Gerwig’s Little Women Inspirations

    Today I noticed the last, heartbreaking moment in Little Women that is set during childhood. As Jo rips up the letter she has written to Laurie, a sun-filled, hazy memory brings us away from the cold river that Jo stands above, showing for a brief moment a scene where Jo takes Laurie under her arm as they embrace in a distinctly loving and playful way.

    Gerwig captures Jo's mourning for childhood beautifully and her desire…

  • Pride & Prejudice

    Pride & Prejudice

    ★★★★½

    This movie gaslit me into believing that the selfish boys I had crushes on/relationships with would end up changing or paying attention to me at some point and now I am cold and bitter about love... but then I watch that final scene and I fall for it all over again! Elizabeth and Darcy forever, damnit.

  • Mulan II

    Mulan II

    ★★½

    This very decisive sequel to Mulan is ... fine ! The plot makes literally no sense & isn’t anywhere near as empowering as Mulan is (since Mulan’s storyline revolves almost entirely around her engagement with Shang) but it’s a sequel and I’ll take what I can get.

    Since George Mackay is not nominated for an Oscar for this film (which he adds so much to, on top of how stunningly beautiful it is), I would like to add some categories that I believe he would win:

    Best Hand For a Baby to Hold
    BEST RUNNING
    Most Running Done in a Film
    Most Lactose Tolerant
    Biggest Push (To Get the Truck Out of the Mud)
    Most British-Sounding Breathing
    Bluest Eyes
    Most Tired

    Ok great can't wait to see George win one of these on Sunday cheers mate!

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    FINALLY got to see this masterpiece. There’s not much more that I can say that hasn’t been said already about the craftsmanship and story of this film, but I will say that the ensemble of this cast gives extraordinary performances all around. 
    I was gripping my seat the entire time.
