    #DOGPOOPGIRL

    ★★½

    Online shaming and its consequences are not new topics. I’ve seen it done better in many movies. Some of the jokes fell flat, some were overdone to the point where they felt stupid and pointless, only offering shock factor. It felt too simplistic here and there but it critiques the Romanian media quite well. Those were the parts I enjoyed the most.

    ★½

    This entire movie felt like we were supposed to ignore who Marilyn Monroe was. It's as if Baz Luhrmann only focused on the first drink Elvis ever had all the way to his serious drug abuse, no care in the world for his contribution to culture and music. Ridiculous, right?

    I know that the source material is a book by Joyce Carol Oates, and I know that is supposedly a shit take on Marilyn's life, but it is clearly fictitious.…

    Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

    ★★★★

    Glenda's scenes were incredible, I really liked the focus on her and on the victims and the families. Evan Peters is amazing in the role, so is Richard Jenkins, even though Lionel Dahmer also makes me squeamish. Tastefully done, exploitative sometimes, but a much better direction than most serial killer movies/shows.

  • Don't Worry Darling

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★★

    Now I understand what Harry Styles meant by “it feels like a movie.” It brings those elements that make a movie worth watching on the big screen. The cinematography, the score, the costumes - all brilliant. Florence Pugh and Chris Pine were the standout performers. Harry Styles was acceptable, good even in many scenes. You can’t help but compare him to Florence Pugh because they share scenes often, but he is good. 
    Cons: honestly mostly writing. I’m not into horror…

  • Flashdance

    Flashdance

    ★★★

    I've seen every dance sequence and all the parodies and references, but I've never actually seen Flashdance. The two good things about this movie are the soundtrack and the dancing itself. Other than that, the story is lacking, there are some weird creepy elements to it such as a 20-year age gap relationship with a boss no less. It's certainly underwritten and the scenes only really serve the music and performances. Overall, a fun enough watch.

  • The Card Counter

    The Card Counter

    ★★½

    I love Oscar Isaac, I love his performance in this movie. But I don't like this movie much at all. I get what it was trying to achieve but it took too long to get there, it gave too little when it mattered and dragged too much when it didn't matter... I was either bored or engaged into something that didn't deliver. It was also an almost aggressively male perspective on anything, it lost my interest quickly.

    ★★★

    I genuinely don't know if I liked this movie much or not. I can certainly say that I did not like the ending. Until then I was on board. This and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood have that strong nostalgia factor for a time I've never lived, that I really enjoy seeing. But the age gap thing missed the mark with me and I really didn't care for the ending. I think the directionless plot somehow ended up not delivering as much as I hoped for, but overall it's a pleasant watch. Alana Haim is amazing, she captivated in every scene she was in.

    Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl

    ★★★★½

    I love this woman. I have casettes of Come On Over and Up!, like I love her, I've grown up listening to her in the car with my parents. Man, she's amazing. This documentary is just a reminder of how amazing she is, and has been through it all.

  • Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn't Exist

    Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn't Exist

    ★★★★

    I don't know much about any sports, and I certainly don't know anything about American football, I only watched this because the title was compelling. I've never heard of this man before. But goddamn, Manti Te'o did not deserve what he got for this story. Calling this thing a hoax was already too much in the first article, he got nothing out of it.
    Also, no matter how much they tried to redeem Naya Tuiasosopo - nah. I'm glad they're…

    ★½

    Someone pointed out that right after hooking up with this man ONCE, Cassie is writing anthems for soldiers. Mind you, she had a childhood bestie who was also getting into the military, ya know, but who cares.

    We didn't check if Luke here is racist or against gay marriage or whatever but he's hot so it's okay if he is, don't you worry.

    Somehow between Big Pharma and the military preying on young people with insurance and college promises we…
