    Brendan Fraser's charisma level is just insane in this movie. Such a radiating screen presence.

    No disrespect to Daniel Day-Lewis but Jonah Hill should've won Best Actor that year I'm sorry but I mean this absolutely sincerely

    Karan Johar reflecting on his career and what he's built in meta and melancholic yet always fun ways. Used to find this one incredibly enjoyable as a kid but now I'm able to appreciate it in a new lens. Vibrant and energetic and spectacular with its heart in the right place and great performances all around, especially from the debut leads. Really fun!

    A masterpiece of sight and sound with arguably the best performances of the year (Frances and Kathryn Hunter in particular are excellent), but William, it's not you, it's me. I just don't get what you're saying all the time. I wish I did, because there's so much to love here. And I am glad I saw it, but sigh, one day I will understand thee.

    Top tier Spielberg. The day everyone wakes up to this fact would be the most vindicated day of my life.

    Pure, pure fucking magic. Revisiting it again almost two years later, where I'm at a much different point of my life than I used to be, the relatability factor of it did slight down a little, but I still loved it just as much if not more than I already did on my previous million watches. It's really all about love, baby. That's what we're here for. What use are we alive if we're…

    Certainly far from one of Wes' most refined or well crafted but it's still endlessly charming and bittersweet. Don't think its gonna hold its number one place in the "15 year old falls in love with an older woman" genre by the time I watch LP but it's still very very good.

    Me after watching C'mon C'mon: "wow kids are actually so amazing, maybe I should reconsider having them when I'm older"

    Me after watching this: "oh."

    A stunningly intimate debut by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Olivia Colman just continues to knock it out of the park consistently, I don't know how she fuckin does it man. One of the best ensembles of 2021 as well (special shout-outs to the wonderful Jessie Buckley and Dakota Johnson)

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Maybe not as mind-blowingly rich or dense this time around as I used to think it was but god it's still just so so so perfect. Also the first time where I felt the 2nd half with all the 80s stuff was better than the 1st.
