    i thought a documentary about editing software was laughable, but i was surprised how much i enjoyed this, being a Final Cut devotee myself.


    not a groundbreaking documentary, but there were a few nuggets of wisdom abt the democratization of video by making it easier to edit.

    The Clovehitch Killer

    ★★½

    cinematography is pretty good, and the acting isn’t bad at all.

    but the film really shoots itself in the foot by revealing the villain so soon. 

    SPOILER: the film provides so much evidence that the father is Clovehitch that it’s hard to take it the movie seriously when the father tries to put the blame on his brother. i mean, the father is always following his son, and seems so nice to the point of being creepy.

    i feel like…

    Rarely do films make me feel absolutely nothing. Congrats Stuber, and thanks for explaining the title of the movie.

    “You know, when we make a computer at Apple, what’s the lifespan? About three years? At five years, it’s a doorstop. But if you do your job right, what you create can last forever.” - Steve Jobs to John Lasseter


    This movie really holds up. The end credits bloopers are so hilarious.


    It seems like computer animation really forced the creators to perfect the pacing and writing because of how much time it took to animate.

    Remarkably short and to the point!

    ★★★½

    Great performances, lighting etc.

    But I didn’t enjoy it very much tbh.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★

    I’ll admit that it didn’t feel like 3 hours, which is surprising, but the first half felt meandering. 

    Amazing that these people had millions of lives on the line and could still joke around.

     And pretty much all the jokes weren’t visual in any way, and there were a lot of them. This is weak storytelling. (The jokes fell flat too)

    ★★★★½

    Yay, it’s just like real life

    The martial arts floppy scene was very entertaining
