    Skyfall

    ★★★★

    Best Bond song.
    Best Bond movie.
    Best cinematography thanks to God himself aka Roger Deakins. 

    And that Javier Bardem teeth scene haunts me since I first saw this movie with the age of 11 and still makes me get PTSD...

  • A Ghost Story

    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★½

    The most quiet movies sometimes can be the most powerful ones. 

    Sometimes when you just randomly scroll through your streaming services and decide to watch a movie you normally wouldn‘t, but then you get surprised in the best way possible. It‘s been a couple of hours now since I finished this beautiful piece of filmmaking and I still don‘t know how to talk about it. There are no words that could describe how brilliant and heart wrenching this movie is,…

    Charlie's Angels

    ★★

    they way that this almost was on riverdale cringe level dialogue is a crime alone...and i don't even want to talk about the rest

  • To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

    To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

    ★★★

    Things I Like About The "To All The Boys" Movies:

    - Corny but in a good way (but only something for the target audience)
    - Asian Representation in a Young Adult Story
    - It's very rewatchable and feels short
    - ...That this is the only acceptable role in Noah Centineos career
    - JOHN AMBROSE MCCLAREN !!!

    Things I Don't Like About The "To All The Boys" Movies:

    - The Love Triangle trope
    - That's it's basically a 2 hour music…

    Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

    Emma Stone sweety, I'm sorry that you were dragged into this and had to play this awful role...

  • Snowpiercer

    Snowpiercer

    ★★★½

    It took me almost an hour to get used to the story and I definitely think that the second half is MUCH stronger than the first one, but still...Bong Joon-ho is a master of his craft and I can't wait to explore his other movies, now that Parasite has won Best Picture. What is your favourite movie by him?

  • Castle in the Sky

    Castle in the Sky

    ★★★

    Probably my most controversial Studio Ghibli opinion, but I can’t change the fact that something about “Castle in the Sky” never worked for me. I wish I could say I like this movie more, but even as a kind the “Ghibli magic” was missing. I still has a huge nostalgia factor for me and there are some scenes I really enjoy, but I never connected with the characters and the story overall. Other Ghibli movies give me joy when I…

  • Tales from Earthsea

    Tales from Earthsea

    ★★★½

    Maybe I'm being biased, because I first watched "Tales from Earthsea" when I was in my big LOTR and fantasy phase when I was a child, but I think people are a bit too harsh on this...

    Sure, it's no Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke and not even in the league of these movies, but "Tales from Earthsea" has a fantastic world building and a very creative original story. This was Goro Miyazakis first movie and I think he did…

  • Horse Girl

    Horse Girl

    ★½

    I don't know what this film wanted to be. Not even sure that the creative minds behind this knew it either. It was too shallow and weird to make for a truly compelling story. I was trying to figure out what the hell this movie's aim is, but I don't know I will ever get an answer to that question...Overall a massive disappointment, because the premise had potential.

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★★

    at this point i just need a hobby so i can stop rewatching this movie...any suggestions?

    but in my defense: i was working on my university application and felt super inspired seeing emma stone achieving her dreams 🙏🏼

  • Ocean Waves

    Ocean Waves

    ★★½

    I never thought I would say that, but the day unfortunately has come: I've found a Ghibli film that I didn't fell in love with.

    It's still beautifully animated, but the story didn't kept my interest and I couldn't connect to the characters. 
    Nothing about this gripped me and made me hold onto it.
