    Singin' in the Rain

    While Singing in the Rain is this classic, there isn't a lot about this movie that I enjoyed. It has great dance choreography and cinematography but I didn't really connect to it. I understand many people also like looking into the glamour of old Hollywood movie making but I don't care for the genre.
    I don't really like the old-timey take on dating a girl "as long as she's over 16", and personally I found the bit about that girls…

    When Harry Met Sally...

    ★★★★½

    Not usually a fan of romcoms, especially from the 80s but wow. I have to say I really enjoyed this movie. The acting and cinematography were average at best, but the excellent writing made up for it. I began the movie not liking either of the main characters, but I think that's what makes them both so charming in a way. They are flawed, just like we all are and I love that. I also loved the juxtaposition of seeing how the older couples and Harry/Sally's "relationship".

    Dreams

    Mystical, magical, and above all beautiful. Dreams is an accumulation of short stories seemingly unrelated in theme, while some of the short stories where interesting, others were a chore to sit through despite gorgeous camera work.

  • Y Tu Mamá También

    Y Tu Mamá También

    I'm not particularly familiar with Alfonso Cuarón's other work, but having seen Roma I can see some similarities between the films despite the two being very different stories. Yet again we get a contrast between Mexico's upper and lower classes, while this was not the main focus of the film certainly was the backdrop. Great performances all around, but the characters themselves were rather unlovable and not charming.
    Minus a star for a splooge shot.
