    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    Imagine seeing this in cinemas when it first came out. you get hit with the most distressingly epic opening shot of all time and then there's absolutely no dialogue at all for the first half hour, 23 minutes of which are apes wobbling around and inventing mob mentality. you (presumably) have no idea what the run time is. you keep trying to figure out the plot but you can't pin it down because you don't already know what the plot…

    “See, I’m right, this is further proof that regular earbuds are so much better than airpods” i say to myself, while wearing airpods synced up with my laptop to watch this movie

    ★★★★

    was this actually good? no idea! i was too busy being absolutely obsessed and frankly kinda turned on with the psychotic girlboss power couple energies that rosamund pike and eiza gonzalez were putting out here. sometimes i can be such an easy bitch.

    Da 5 Bloods

    ★★★★

    I have no idea what to say because I DID like this, I DID think it was very good, I loved the way the flashbacks are done (aspect ratio change, grainy film, choosing not to deage instantly making it feel like a memory) and I WAS completely riveted by the performances. but I was also conflicted about the commentary on the vietnam war regarding the vietnamese people. it was an immoral war! and it wasn't their war! and black people…

    mr. fincher works very hard and I commend him for that! but sadly my detachment worked harder

    One Night in Miami...

    ★★★★

    man, as an actor, it must be so much fun to do these play-adapted-for-the-big-screen movies, cause you get to really ACT and play around with awesome writing. this was great, honestly riveting thanks to the strength of these performances and the way they work together.
    this poster doesn't do this movie justice tho, damn

    Saint Maud

    ★★★

    when she took the scissors to that gorgeous volume of blake's poetry filled with illustrations i. i can't even explain how horrifying that was to me
    honestly, truly heartbroken that I did not like this because it fits my vibe and tastes to a T! and the mix of what felt like wasted potential and occasionally lowkey ripping off other artsy horror movies kinda pissed me off, but oh well. good ending tho?

    god you know what? i've been waiting for some Quality Alone Time with the family flatscreen to watch this one because *christopher nolan voice* I felt watching it on my laptop would be doing it a disservice.
    so my family all happened to clear out tonight and I took my chance cause they all would've absolutely hated me if i tried to make them watch this, BUT THEN i accidentally got kinda tipsy because I made myself a too-strong negroni…

    ★★½

    who fucking talks like this. this is a serious, non-rhetorical question; i'm not a native english speaker so my day-to-day human-to-human interactions are on a different universe, but when he threw the word "solipsistic" into a heated argument or when they kept randomly psychoanalizing each other or going on involved tangents about the nature of art i just thought hmm. do people really interact like this?
    and then there's how uuuh weird it is to use commentaries on racism and…

  • The Trial of the Chicago 7

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★½

    okay so. only watched this because it's looking like it's gonna be nominated everywhere in 2 months and i wanted to get it out of the way now, so kudos to aaron sorkin (writer) for making me sort of enjoy a courtroom drama, even if aaron sorkin (director) was meh. I wanted to crack eddie redmayne in his weirdly-accented mouth every time he was on screen and the ending.... yikes yikes yikes. the script still had some total bangers tho.…
