    ★★★★

    Hilarious, entertaining, educational, great arcs for the protagonists. A new favorite! Close ups to two shot....simple and says it all.

  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

    The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

    a really great example that following the original source to a T for an adaptation is bad, especially when it doesn't translate cinematically.

    the first half hour was really rough simply to show bella's post-transformation but it was too serene and anti climactic, really uncomfortable cgi on baby (why couldn't they cast a baby like any normal film?), also I personally think Meyer gave a big fuck you to team jacob fans with the imprinting bs.

    some things I DID…

  • The Last Unicorn

    The Last Unicorn

    ★★★

    Never was interested checking this one out as a kid. Love the soundtrack. To be fair, a red bull as the antagonist is pretty random. If anything a well known hunter would be a better adversary considering the unicorn has magic.

    Gangs of New York

    really glad no one in their right mind would finance this kind of film nowadays...it's...embarrassing

  • Breakfast at Tiffany's

    Breakfast at Tiffany's

    ★★★

    the last scene in the taxi makes this so worthwhile. audrey shines here. the walks down park and fifth, the morning sunshine warming the pavement...there's nothing quite like it.

  • La Ciénaga

    La Ciénaga

    ★★★½

    Lots of points were made. Lucrecia is one of the few directors that doesn't make me doubt myself. And she's so open about her own observations in regards to time and sound.

  • The Young Girls of Rochefort

    The Young Girls of Rochefort

    Couldn’t exactly finish it. Musicals just aren't my cup of tea. There’s no denying however the colors and choreography radiate warmth and fun.

  • Finding Vivian Maier

    Finding Vivian Maier

    ★★★½

    Lesson: it’s always better to share your art than being a hoarder and lonely.
