    The Lost Weekend

    ★★★★½

    I feel a little dirty watching this while having an alcoholic drink lol. The Lost Weekend was the first movie of Wilder’s to win best picture and even though it won best picture, I still consider it an underrated movie of his. I feel it gets lost in the shuffle of his other movies like Some Like It Hot, Double Indemnity and The Apartment. Yet, I’m deeply engrossed by this simple story of an alcoholic having difficulty defeating his addiction while going on a bender. It’s definitely one of his darker movies, but also one of my favorites of his.

    I don’t love this as much as some of Wilder’s other movies, but even so, I consider this one of the best film noir movies I’ve seen!

    In my opinion, this was Billy Wilder’s magnum opus. A classic masterpiece with a bunch of quotable lines!

    Good grief! I know it was a weak best actress race, but Jessica Lange’s performance felt over the top and undeserved. On top of that, the movie just didn’t feel engaging.

    Wes Craven attempts to direct a thriller, with some success. Except it wasn’t very thrilling and felt like the intention behind what was happening wasn’t explained well enough. Love seeing Rachel McAdams kick some ass though!

    The movie’s a little weird but at the same time it’s not at weird or uncomfortable as I thought it was going to be. Kidman gives a decent performance, even though I really disliked her haircut. I just wish there was more to the ending than what we got.

    Didn’t realize the movie was a comedy beforehand. The film feels pretty dated but it’s overall still relatively entertaining.

    13: The Musical

    When 13: The Musical was on broadway, I was a huge fan. I was on the cusp of 13 myself, so I felt like I could really relate to the character and themes. The main gimmick of the broadway show was that the entire cast was all kids. As far as I know, this had never really been done on broadway before where not a single adult was featured, and I thought it added extra life and originality into the…
