  • Frances Ha

    Frances Ha

    ★★★★★

    I remember the first viewing of Frances Ha well enough and how it treated me then. At the time, I was unfamiliar with Greta Gerwig and my first impression only had me thinking that what I was watching was cute and funny. The more I watch Greta Gerwig, I slowly realize what it is about the way she writes her characters that keeps me watching them as their stories are being told for us on the screen, and what I…

  • The Apartment

    The Apartment

    ★★★★★

    I'm an especially reclusive individual. I don't even know if I've ever managed to have a social life the way I wanted because, to say the least, I've lived my life as a hermit. I think this is a fairly known fact about me, and it isn't surprising about the sort of person that I am, I've been living a lonely person. I've never been a particularly good communicator. I'm already nearing my 19th birthday as I'm writing this and…

  • Rampage

    Rampage

    ★★★

    Memories of the arcade game haven’t really faded away from my own memory as I was setting foot into Rampage. No matter how low I can set my expectations for whatever sort of movie that I know he’s starring in, I have to admit that I always admired how Dwayne Johnson is always ready to show that he’s having so much fun no matter what movie he’s taking part of. Now that he’s reuniting with the director of San Andreas

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★★

    I don’t really know how to put into words the sort of impact that this movie had on me the first time I saw it, and still carries on me now. But I figured that maybe it may be the perfect time in order to talk about what it is that this film means to a person like myself. It’s the sort of experience that almost feels very vindicating for myself, because I always have that very fear of being…

    Ikiru

    ★★★★★

    Before I begin, I would like to say that this is not going to be a proper review and I want you to keep the one person behind it in mind.

    My name is Jaime Rebanal, and I am a hopeless individual who has suffered through depression and extreme anxiety. I think saying that can already get a load off my chest for the time being.

    But why say this in front of an entry about Ikiru, you say? I…

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★½

    Damien Chazelle's ode to the classical era of Hollywood's musicals in La La Land takes his viewers on a nostalgic trip for a good two hours - and while it runs, the pleasantness can be felt all the way through as if there were anything much more to ask. Where it needs to succeed, La La Land certainly manages to achieve its goal for Damien Chazelle's aspiration to bring his own viewers back to such an era for Hollywood comes…
