    That Beauty and the Beast remake is starting to look better now. 

    There were so little I like that’s worth mentioning. I appreciate the Bollywood style for costume and production design. Naomi Scott and Will Smith looked like they were having fun with their performances. That’s about it. 

    The writing is so messy as fuck. Like Beauty and the Beast (2017) there are lots of unnecessary changes to extend the length and pause the story for a rEaLiStIc plot and…

    Daddy Longlegs

    ★★★★

    How do you tell an impactful story about the stress of fatherhood?
    Enough to give your old man a big hug.

    I've been itching for another fine film from the Safdie Brothers and I'm glad I bumped into this one. I appreciate their style so much the more I dive into their filmography, seeing the human side of people in tough responsibilities and making careless mistakes only to bite them in the ass. The Dad's passion for hanging out with…

    Back at it again!

    Basically, Igmar Bergman's Ikiru but with trippy dream sequences.

  • The Elephant Man

    The Elephant Man

    ★★★★

    Elephant Man is the perfect movie to introduce your family to David Lynch. I wonder how they’ll take Eraserhead or Blue Velvet. 

    I think this is the tamest movie from Lynch. It’s not as experimental or creative, to me Elephant man was exceptional enough that it didn’t need to be out there. The characters were complex to make this movie an interesting drama. John Merrick struggles to find confidence calling himself a human being, and Anthony Hopkins questions himself if…

    ★★★★★

    Why'd you spill your beans???

    I'm full of delight to say The Lighthouse is my favorite film of the year so far. There is so much Roger Eggers beautifully crafted in this film to leave me floored both visually and emotionally.

    Robert Patterson clearly shows so much talent, thanks to the writing for giving him so much range as an actor. Every scene he's in pulls it off for being believably funny and relatable. William Dafoe doesn't just play as…

    HOLY ... FUCKING ... SHIT!

    Words cannot describe how crazy this movie is! In my beliefs about watching films is to make you feel transported to another reality. There were so many times I forgot I was watching a movie thanks to the tone, and filmmaking. The message maybe pretty simple (Don't do Drugs), but it does everything to make you feel, what the characters are feeling.
    The choreography is amazing, not just the dancing but most of the movie…
