  • Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

    Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

    ★★★★

    I remember watching this multiple times on VHS as a kid and adoring it. Now that i’m a young adult, how do my feelings on this Christmas special hold up? Well, i’m happy to sat that this special still holds up 21 years later. It perfectly captures the heart, soul, and spirit of the holiday through its emotional storytelling and visuals, while also adding dashes of goofy (no pun intended), but also irresistibly charming, humor to it as well. Sure does feel good to go down memory lane during this particular time of the year 😊❤️

  • Persona

    Persona

    ★★★★

    Look folks, i want to love this film like all of you do. Plus, i think this is still a really good film that showcases Ingmar Bergman’s talents as a filmmaker. But in all honesty, i can’t really call this his masterpiece like everyone else does. This is due to these 2 main issues:

    1. The Pacing. This is one of those cases where i think the film could’ve benefited from having a slower pace, thus allowing for more time…

  • The Host

    The Host

    ★★★★

    Could’ve been a LITTLE bit stronger in the horror department, but i was still pretty damn satisfied by how well-made this film was. Did not expect this to have as much emotional depth as it did though. With this and Mother (which i still need to watch), i feel like Bong Joon-Ho would make for a pretty solid horror film director.

  • Sanjuro

    Sanjuro

    ★★★★

    Legit can’t tell if i like this more than Yojimbo. They’re both a tie honestly.

    Edit: i like Yojimbo a little bit more

  • Sleepy Hollow

    Sleepy Hollow

    ★★★★

    Christopher Walken’s Headless Horseman is my pride and joy

  • The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★★★

    Yeah, how many Oscars was this film nominated for, again?

    Just 3???

    Alright, Academy. You do you, i guess...
