    My Top 100 Movies Rewatch

    Uncut Gems:
    Original Ranking: #86
    New Ranking: #88

    Stressful, anxiety inducing, non-stop chaos, and a whole lot of swearing.  That pretty much sums up Uncut Gems for you.  The Safdie Brother’s sophomore film is just as intense and engaging as their predecessor, though lacking a bit of the artistic flare Good Time had, it makes up for it through the impeccable dialogue, and a new level performance from Adam Sandler, as well as surprisingly Kevin…

    Make Way for Tomorrow:

    Wow, just wow.

    Words cannot describe how awesome this movie is.  I can’t believe it took me this long to finally watch it.  It’s terrifying, brutally gruesome, and has some of the best practical effects I have ever seen.  The animatronics and puppets used in this film are out of this world, and truly disturbing.  John Carpenter directs this film to perfection creating a very creepy tone throughout that just settles into you, (similar to the feeling I get when…
