I’m just trying to watch as many films as Lorelai Gilmore.

    This is sweet, but the thing is Raiff's character is not as charming as the women in this film found him to be and them keep praising him as such really ticked me off.

    Raiff is a talented writer, that is for sure, but he is not a *great* writer. He definitely has potential so I will wait for what he'll do next. Still, I found this to be better than Shithouse so that's progress I guess!

  • Crimes of the Future

    Crimes of the Future

    ★★★½

    Been waiting for a decent body horror for so long now and this is not only that, but also a powerful message on humanity and will. Little problems here and there like pacing and ending but I can easily overlook them since it is Cronenberg.

    Call Me By Your Name is like a poetic, heart-breaking song that gets you everytime. An unforgettable cinematic experience and probably the best of the year, and one the best queer movies of all time.

    I don’t wanna sound like a film bro but seriously, how could Scorsese achieve making so many perfect films? Everytime, I just say to myself “this is it. this is his best work” and with every other movie I find myself gaping. [And I haven’t even watched Goodfellas yet!!]

    After Hours is a genius, funny, disturbing, filled with paranoia masterpiece. One of the most exciting and fun films I’ve ever seen. Griffin Dunne is so good.
