    ★★★★

    "I don't think people are meant to be by themselves. That's why if you actually find someone you care about, It's important to let go of the little things. Even if you can't let go all the way. Because nothing sucks more then feeling all alone, no matter how many people are around." - JD, Scrubs

    I've always felt lonely.

    To varying degrees of course - the presence of family and friends have certainly lessened the impact some days, but…

    This review is going to be a personal and schmaltzy mess. You have been warned.

    This was not the plan.

    Today I was going to finish the script for my new short film. But I just couldn't. The main reason was certainly writer's block which is something I'm used to by now, however the pressure of making it out of the hellscape that is high school into university and then a career just scares me.

    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

    ★★★★★

Here We Go Again is a film full of leaps and desires, people in the masses dancing along to the beats of life, yearning for stories and memories to fill themselves to the brim while the cherished moments of love take them from island to island in mere glimpses. If there's something learnt from the generational symphony of the Mamma Mia! films is…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    70mm - Q&A with Keir Dullea & Gary Lockwood

    Pure undiluted cinema. Before the screening, at the commencement of the Q&A, Dullea reflected on a question unto Kubrick about the 'ultimate meaning' of 2001. Kubrick replied with a question, 'how do you explain Beethoven's Fifth?'. Dullea proceeded to ask the audience who had seen the film, and then compared the thoughts of people who had heard Blue Danube: those who think of Vienna, perhaps a river, or those who reflect on…

    ★★★★★

    "Sometimes I think I'm destined to care so much about one person it nearly kills me."

    A quick and albeit unnecessary caveat; I'm gay. I came out to my close friends in 2015 and my family a year later. Both were in less than ideal conditions (which allowed this quote to truly hit hard). I've become much more accepting of myself since then, but I still have some changes to make. (including but not limited to my terrible wardrobe)
