    ★★★★

    I watched the original so long ago I forget how much I enjoyed it, so maybe that's why I liked this one so much. I love when I have empathy with the villain in a horror film. It doesn't happen often, but by the end of the film, I was still rooting for Carrie. The prom scene was so awesome.

    The Holiday Calendar

    ★★½

    Predictable, of course, but it was well acted and had great diversity. Was incredibly odd the whole film was a total of only three weeks when the timeline would have made more sense if it was three months, but that's a Christmas movie for you. They did great with whatever budget they had, though, even if it was weird a struggling artist would have such a nice apartment, clothes and car. It was pretty cute but definitely could have been better with a more realistic storyline.

    I can't remember the last time I have been so engrossed and completely mesmerized by a film as I was with this one. Words can't even start to articulate how breathtaking this was as an experience and as a film in its entirety.

    To All the Boys I've Loved Before

    ★★★★

    There were so many great lines and moments in this, and despite being ten years older than the high schoolers, I can still relate to a lot of what they're going through. I too am scared of getting close to people, as I fear that they will leave me one day. But I know that's no way to live. This film was seriously so sweet, and I teared up more times than I can count. I loved it.
