    The Revenant

    i hadn't seen this movie for a very long time so i decided to add it into my rewatch project to see how it'd stand up today...and it did it quite excellently! i really wanted to raise the score but i think i'll leave it like this just because i think a good chunk of it could've been cut down or shortened, but the rest is just incredible, the cinematography is straight up one of the best i've ever seen…

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    remains as a 4/5 simply because the second half shows how unspecial the first half is, but all and all it's still solid all the way through. denis is a master at crafting scale and here even if more subtle it works just as good thanks to the incredible cinematography and unnoticeable special effects, the directing and acting were solid but in the ending everything just got together and worked perfectly, one of the best and most emotional endings in any villeneuve film.
    so overall not denis's best but still remarkable overall.

    Gone Girl

    gone girl solidifies its place amongst fincher's best films thanks to its twisted narrative and the thrilling moments that fill his movies. it's a long, slow film that almost feels like a police procedure but it somehow never gets boring or uninteresting, fincher is a master at crafting movies, handling characters and...well...giving us twists, and here...it really works, maybe not as good or impactful as in se7en or fight club but still a great twist which was indeed pretty twisted!
    overall i'd say this is a great movie with some unsurprisingly great directing, structure and acting.

    La La Land

    a passionate and beautiful looking film about following your dreams, chazelle shot the living shit out this movie! it looks beautiful and it's filled with colors from start to finish, the main couple in it is also very sweet and well developed AND acted, both ryan and emma did a solid job with their characters making the whole romance believeable.
    i must say that even if this is probably my favorite musical and i really like it i don't see…
