    He's All That

    ★★★½

    This is a cute and fun movie, that I strangely sat down and watched with my mother after much deliberation. I really did get the sense that it was trying hard to not take inspiration from mean girls but it was obvious. If anything this movie made me realize Lindsay Lohan truly had a spark of great acting in Mean Girls. But anyway Addison Rae isn’t a good actor, but I had fun watching it. Although “The color of her eyes is yellow” by soccer mom would’ve been a great opening song but that’s just my opinion.

    Oh lord. I love Aretha. I love Jennifer Hudson. This movie had a lot going for it. But what the fuck. 

    Amazing Grace is not quite like other biopics. For starters, the direction and lighting was pretty good, like professional good. So it was a disappointment to see what was behind all that pretty direction. Jennifer Hudson spent the whole movie switching into a fake transatlantic accent and donning corny expressions to highlight Aretha’s innocence. The story was so rushed.…

    ★★★½

    A very charming and surprisingly sexy comedy! Though I had higher expectations, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie. I love Barbara Stanwyck so much, her acting is top notch. That woman knew how to work! I have to say I was disappointed with Henry Fonda, I did not think he very funny at all. The idiot schtick got old after a while. Every time I looked at him it was like looking into Jane’s face, she literally has her dads face. And wow! So much innuendo, I couldn’t believe it. I thought Barbara was going to burn through the camera film🎞 .

  • Romeo + Juliet

    Romeo + Juliet

    ★★★★

    Though I get older, the shine on Baz Luhrmann films never seems to fade. I had to review a movie for my humanities class and my teacher said we could watch Romeo and Juliet but only this version so yeah she’s pretty cool. The last time I watched this I was the same age as Claire Danes was and now I’m 2 years older ;( No matter how old I get or how cynical, this movie always touches that hopeless…

    ★★★★

    A genius and glorious movie that transcends the Pre-Code genre and genuinely becomes a timeless should-be classic. Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich were just an amazing partnership, though there was a lot of tension between them. It’s honestly sad to see the female spy movie go from this to red sparrow lol. Marlene Dietrich just shined in this movie, and my gay heart just loves her ♥️ ♥️ ♥️

    A truly creative and timeless movie. I haven’t fired up the ole criterion collection app in a while, and estoy feliz that I did. I’ve seen Marcello Mastroianni in a lot of things before, but here he truly shines. He’s just so damn lovable! I usually don’t like movies that are all over the place, but everything felt like it was in the correct place, it just fit so good. I look forward to seeing all of this wonderful director’s movies!

    ★★★★

    An excellent showcase of Mae West’s talent. The way she walked, talked, and wore her diamonds were all so manicured I wanted to call her nail salon. Mae West was stunning and a campy gay boys’ dream (That’s me) and I can’t wait to watch more of her movies!!

    ★★★★½

    Absolutely AMAZING. This is seriously better than big little lies x1000. All the actors in this show are top notch, I seriously couldn’t think of one person that didn’t a DAMN fine job at their role. Hugh Grant deserves all the awards, I never realized he had such depth, and Donald Sutherland, Noah Jupe, and Nicole Kidman were a FORCE!! I wish this was longer, it was just so fresh and exciting compared to the shite they put out on Netflix these days.

    ★★★½

    A wonderful and cheerful New Years movie from... the Soviet Union? I expected a weird propaganda film, but got quite the opposite. It lightheartedly made fun of Soviet official who keep everybody down, and just had fun. It’s a colorful and bright movie, with acting worthy of a Frank Capra movie. I seriously loved it, it captured 50’s jubilee better than America could. And seriously why were all the men in this movie so HOT? I’m getting a ticket to Moscow

    A beautiful and enchanting experience. Buffalo 66 just gets better and better with age. From Sicilian men yelling to crying in a Denny’s bathroom, there’s everything you could possibly want! Vincent Gallo and Christina Ricci had amazing chemistry it’s unbelievable. This whole movie is perfect, I can’t find a single thing wrong with it.  It makes me feel old because I was younger than Christina Ricci was when I watched it last now I’m a year older 😭. Also hot take Vincent Gallo is the Azealia Banks of film, they both offend black or Jewish people and then spit out a masterpiece

    This is such a fun movie and Vincent price = hot. Who would’ve thought I’d spend Halloween night being horny for fifty something Vincent price 😪

    ★★★★

    The early nineties has to be the best time for movies EVER. The humor is just so on point and ahead of its time it is unbelievable. Everyone nails their performance, especially Angelica Huston. Also Raul Julia was SUPER hot, bring back hot dads in movies.
