daniel craig’s tenure as bond is something i’ve known my entire life. i’ve grown up obsessing over the first three films, seeing him (and my perspective on the series) evolve with spectre, and now i have to come to terms with the idea that it all ends here. it’s almost surreal for me, having to let go. with that all said, i sincerely couldn’t be any happier with how it concludes. sure, there’s an argument to be made that the…
I love, love, love this movie. I’ve seen it four times now and I’m ready to call it one of my favorite films of all time, which I know is a weird take because even most die hard Beatles fans can’t find it within themselves to say much good about this movie.

I forget how I came across the video or why I even watched it, because I really didn’t care about movies at all then. But I did take a few recommendations from that video that looked interesting to me like Whiplash, and I ended up loving them. I began to watch his content regularly, and through seeking out more of the films he…

My jaw dropped in disbelief when I opened Twitter yesterday only to see that Megan Is Missing was trending.
A couple years ago when I was watching some of the “most disturbing movies ever made,” I avoided this one because pretty much everyone who had seen the film has regarded it has one of the worst movies ever made. Hearing that the film had recently gone viral on TikTok of all things is still baffling to…
