    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    After my initial viewing of EEAaO I could easily see the greatness in the film's uniqueness and technical aspects, yet I still felt a sort of disconnect that left me without the same sense of love for the film that others had. But something clicked during this second viewing, and the film had me deeply enthralled.

    It's an incredibly clever film, building it's first part up around the audiences expectations, relying heavily on tropes, only to completely subvert those expectations…

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    Watching Mulholland Drive feels almost evolutionary, constantly changing with every viewing as new details and nuances come to light. It never once feels old due to its brilliant editing that seamlessly weaves multiple side stories and ideas together in some of the best two hours of cinema ever put to screen.

    It never relies on cheap visuals or over explanatory exposition, but rather on its audience's merit and intellect.

    I constantly grow fonder of this film every time that I…

    The Color Purple

    ★★★

    This marks my official introduction to The Color Purple in all its forms, and it was completely fine. The film's greatest aspects were the performances from its star-studded cast, and the excellent songs. But still the film feels like an adaption in every sense of the word.

    I'd love to revisit it once I've finally gotten around to Spielberg's adaption. I'm excited to see how it'll effect my experience of this one.

  • Woman in the Moon

    Woman in the Moon

    ★★★★

    Woman in the Moon is an intriguingly interesting film from master filmmaker Fritz Lang. The film tries a somewhat grounded approach to its sci-fi aspects unlike many genre pictures from the era, giving it a unique quality. There's a deep focus on the film's characters and their relations rather than the film being a simple spectacle.

    Woman in the Moon is a fun, albeit a smidge too long watch.

    ★★★

    Overall a good story worth exploring. The show itself was of a good quality, but it felt somehow stretched thin. I do think it might have worked better as a film or a proper, longer series.

  • Alien Resurrection

    Alien Resurrection

    ★★½

    I quite honestly found Alien Resurrection to be a lot more enjoyable and enticing than I thought I would.

    The cast is unbelievably good with Sigourney Weaver returning along with the addition of Winona Ryder, Ron Perlman, Brad Dourif and more. The direction by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, albiet flawed, is wholly unique and does bring a shift in tone that makes the film stand out.

    The film's biggest flaw is in its script and especially in its concept - non of…
