  • The Wind Rises

    The Wind Rises

    ★★½

    Quarantine Movie Club Ranked

    Really sad I couldn't connect with The Wind Rises. I love planes and trains, and this film is filled with them. But unfortunately, I just didn't really love most of the characters and I felt the movie went on a little too long. At the very least all of the animation was gorgeous and visually the movie was fantastic.

    I think if I was in a better mood today I may have connected with it more,…

  • The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

    The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

    ★★★★

    I fucking love trains. This film has a train in every frame of it. So... masterpiece for what it is???

  • Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory

    Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory

    ★★★

    It's good. I love seeing so many people on screen, long since dead, but forever immortalized on the screen. There is also a PRETTY cool dog AND a guy on a bike. Something for everyone really.

  • Passage of Venus

    Passage of Venus

    ★★★

    Gotta Say: Pretty epic. This needs a remake soon. Even though its just a few pictures, its pretty incredible looking at it from a historical view.

  • A Nightmare

    A Nightmare

    ★★

    Would be pretty dope if it didn't have one of the big fears be a black person. Without the racism there is still a scary and goofy moon, as well as a scary clown. But racism is everywhere, and its a lot easier to notice when it's up close and in your face like this. It unfortunately ruins the whole surrounding product.

  • Sallie Gardner at a Gallop

    Sallie Gardner at a Gallop

    ★★★½

    Legitimately, and I mean this with all sincerity, really enchanting. At the very least it was to me. I'm not sure if its the fact that I was watching from nearly 150 years ago, the fact I an sleep deprived, or my love of shadows and silhouettes in film, or maybe even a combination of all three, but this really worked for me.

  • Athlete Swinging a Pick

    Athlete Swinging a Pick

    ★★½

    It's always absolutely fascinating to me watching the dawn of filmmaking of any sort, just thinking about the fact that just a few decades later literal masterpieces would start coming out.

    Unfortunately with this I didn't get much enjoyment like with my watch of Roundhay Garden Scene. This is most likely due to the fact in this short the title gives away the entire plot.

  • Roundhay Garden Scene

    Roundhay Garden Scene

    ★★★

    One of the most important films for looking at filmmaking through a historical lenses. In addition, I kind of liked it. Why they walking towards the camera only to make a U turn an walk away. Is there a demon lurking there? Most likely not but WE WILL NEVER KNOW.

  • Creating Rem Lezar

    Creating Rem Lezar

    ½

    Quarantine Movie Club Ranked

    Creating Rem Lezar is pretty awful. A few chuckles are available here and there. Besides that however its just incredibly boring. Nothing is really enjoyable to make fun of. It's just very very boring for 48 minutes. The music itself wasn't even terrible in my opinion, just boring. The movie is just really boring. Not recommended and I hope to push this from my memory soon, but I doubt that will happen.

    The small bit of…

  • Boruto: Naruto the Movie

    Boruto: Naruto the Movie

    Quarantine Movie Club Ranked

    I really really dislike Naruto. i have tried to watch it dozens of times, and I can never get into it. I don't like the characters, the dialogue, the story, or the overall look of the show. While I enjoy a few moments of animation from the series, that is the only positive I can pull from it. That and some pretty fun video games.

    Boruto has the exact same problems. I really despise all the…

  • Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin II - Artesia's Sorrow

    Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin II - Artesia's Sorrow

    ★★★½

    Series: Mobile Suit Gundam Ranked

    Artesia's Sorrow, the second of the six origin films for Mobile Suit Gundam, continues on the path of telling Casval's story. Three years later, and he remains much the same. He is quicker to explode in his temper, and he is more physically imposing, but much of his character is that same child we saw fleeing from the Space Colonies.

    The biggest issue this film had was that it felt like two complete separate stories…

  • Cabaret

    Cabaret

    ★★★

    Cabaret is dirty, grimey, and gross in its presentation of the dirty, grimey, and gross world around us. Yet at the same time its alluring, and sexy, and at times, hopeful. Nazis fill the street and people are beaten and looked down on, but still they carry on in the hopes of finding love, happiness, and fulfilling their dream. With a setting in Pre-WWII Germany, we watch the Nazi party begin to rise and hatred begin to show its face.…
