    Attempt #3 at getting my little brother into horror πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜

    A pinch of Annabelle shenanigans, a dash of worst-case-scenario-Bruno-in-Encanto, and a heaping pile of exposition. Overall, a pretty solid entry-level horror movie.

    HORRORx52 | 4. Highest rated horror film you haven't seen that's not on your watchlist

    "Nothing is certain in life, but death."

    I see all the exceptionally high ratings that people give this film and can't help but feel like I'm missing something. Granted, this is an incredible look at how delusions develop and how power can break a person. I do love films that follow a character's descent into madness. And not to mention the lead actor did a…

    "They never told me how friendship dissolves. Until you're strangers, friends in name only."

    Joachim Trier is quickly becoming a favourite director of mine. His films aren't over the top or even particularly exciting, they're more grounded and true to life. They give voice to the quieter, often silent, moments we experience and allow us to reflect on our own existence.

    Oslo, August 31st covers 1 day of Anders' life, arguably the most important day of his life. Anders is…

    This sets the bar for gore in cinema. I'm not even exaggerating when I say that this is THE bloodiest movie I have ever seen. It's cruel, it's twisted, it's nasty. So naturally, it was made by the French.

    Anna Kendrick I hope they paid you well!!

    This was almost nothing what I expected it to be and honestly, I feel letdown. My biggest complaint with The Last Five Years is the editing. I'm not against films being out of chronological order but this was just sooo...disorientating? Each scene felt disconnected from the last which made it difficult for any real flow to form.

    I felt nothing between the lead characters. The actors, Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, offered…

    52 Weeks | 3. Low budget, big box office

    Knowing how hated this movie is, I was genuinely surprised when I actually somewhat enjoyed watching this. Maybe it's because my taste is movies is garbage or maybe it's just because I'm sick in bed. Or both.

    What I didn't know beforehand was the controversy surrounding the ending. But I thought it fit the movie well. It's abrupt, bleak, and gives a more realistic feel to the events that just unfolded.…

    52 Weeks | 2. A movie "classic"

    Not the best Hitchcock film, but also not the worst by any means. I enjoyed the premise and the characters a lot, but the runtime was a bit excessive for what it was. However, great score and performances, and impressive set pieces. I loved the last act especially. A daring escape from a house on Mt. Rushmore? Doesn’t get much better than that.

    And Happy belated Birthday Cary Grant! πŸ₯³

    Complete crap. Not even blonde Andrew Garfield could save this. Some of the worst writing I've ever seen in a movie, both for characters and plot.
