    ★★★

    Safer than I expected from Hawley but *extreme Mo'nique gif face* I would like to see it, where it is his 2nd feature film. And Natalie is stunning always we stan a legend.

    I feel like so much of the bad reviews are like NOT ENOUGH SPACE and NO DIAPERS so like I dunno, check your psychology this is fine.

  • Gloria Bell

    ★★★★½

    My religion is Julianne Moore spinning and twirling and downing martinis and not retiring though she absolutely needs the time off and doing yoga in those huge glasses.

    This movie is nourishment. I'll rewatch it soon.

  • The Goldfinch

    The Goldfinch

    ★★★

    Caveat: the book was better but the book is a different medium and I am not having a book to movie adaptation medium is the message conversation in 2019. No. This movie is still on the side of good.

    Boris! Boris alone, in the flesh! Take my money for just bringing that character to life. Nicole! Sarah! Luke Wilson playing a part he was kind of born to play! Sad, lost, beautiful Luke Wilson! He lives, thank god. Jeff Wright…

  • Hustlers

    Hustlers

    ★★★★

    Easy to love. Fun editing. Way more depth than was expected (or even needed tbh). Guest stars galore. The complications of friendship and scarcity. Made me miss everything pre-2008 EXCEPT pre-2008 J.Lo because 2019 J.Lo is a gift and this is A FILM.

    Everyone played their part.

  • Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    After a few days I have concluded that this is the only hand movement and feeling and tone I can give when talking about this film. media.giphy.com/media/26n6PxXCcE7d1O7Go/giphy.gif

  • The Beach Bum

    The Beach Bum

    ★★★★

    In perhaps a true lesson from this film, I kept my expectations low and was rewarded with much more than I ever asked for. This is a mini homage to Florida bohemia which exists uniquely in a surreal, parrothead way. Frankly I loved it.

  • Under the Silver Lake

    Under the Silver Lake

    ★★½

    Ah yes, a movie made for the separation of ratings & likes.

    Wow I liked some things and wow were some things tedious and very "i get it, FILMS" (which, maybe we don't like mirrors very much rn ok?) and yes I am absolutely watching this again when I have 2 hours and 15 minutes to kill.

  • Jennifer's Body

    ★★★★

    I'll be watching this every pride from here on out

  • Mid90s

    Mid90s

    ★★★

    My biggest fear is never seeing more work from the actors who played Ray and Fuckshit (!!)

    I don't know why this happened in the 90s, besides the soundtrack. But I enjoyed its verite:humanity ratio.

  • The Family Fang

    The Family Fang

    ★★★½

    An extra star for Nicole's meta topless acting scene narrative at the beginning. An extra half star for Nicole herself.

  • Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town

    Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town

    ★★★★

    Overrating on purpose because I love Heavens to Betsy, Mackenzie Davis, people doing dumb things from real life (i feel like this is a story from perhaps 12 people I know, retold), and Carrie Coon in smokey eye makeup. There's also some very fun dialogue and I love the neighborhood tour of LA. It IS impossible to get from one place to the next there and it did feel urgent and wild. Where the heck is Miracle Mile. Is that Annie Potts? Can I just hang at her house for the rest of the movie? I like these things.
