    From Up on Poppy Hill

    ★★★★

    I've always heard bad things about this, but I loved it. It's a very cozy film.

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    While the plot is just a boring clone of every other Marvel movie (don't get me started on how ridiculous it is that people are comparing this to John Hughes / teen movies), I am so fucking charmed by Tom Holland's version of Spider-Man. Peter Parker is dear to my heart, and I was ecstatic from minute one that a movie finally got him right. The supporting cast is pretty great, too, although I could've used way less of RDJ.

    The Imitation Game

    ★★

    Every time I stop and think about this film, I have to lower its rating half a star.

    I just can't fathom why someone decided to take the fascinating life story of Turing and turn it into this cliche sleeping-pill of a biopic.

  • Poltergeist

    Poltergeist

    ★★★★

    This shouldn't be scary anymore because of the way the effects have aged, but it still got under my skin. Probably because of the curse associated with the filming? Plus that f#cking clown doll. But at the end of the day, Poltergeist is just a really beautifully made movie. The final shot, for example, is a perfect ending.
