  • Nightcrawler



    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper rewatch. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

  • Oppenheimer



    "We were worried that we'd start a chain reaction that would destroy the entire world."
    "I remember it well. What of it?"

    Saw this again last night, wanted to give myself another day to wrestle with my many thoughts, as well as have time to write this review, look over it again, and still make sure I believed whatever I would end up typing by the time I posted it. I have two significant announcements to share with Oppenheimer. I'm…

    Godzilla Minus One



    Really worth saying how neat it is that after there have been nearly forty Godzilla films now over the span of almost seventy years of cinema, filmmakers are still finding new and interesting things to do in terms of how the Big G is portrayed visually, as well as what kind of stories can surround the character. Plus, if you were to ask me, this is now my pick for the best Godzilla film, so there you go. I…

  • Maestro



    If you're not careful, you're going to die a lonely, old queen.

    I'll get this out of the way at the top, the nose is fine. Yeah, it was iffy with the stills and the trailer, but in the film, I got used to it pretty much immediately. It's a non-issue. Good? Good. A Star is Born is a film I was semi-mixed on when I saw it in theaters, though I have recently wanted to give it another shot.…

    Natural Born Killers


    "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

    In one word, grating. Before I say anything beyond that, I'm going to make something clear: I wholly get what Oliver Stone and company were doing here. You can't miss what this movie is supposed to be about. It's decent messaging. Of course we glorify killers in the media. Of course humans are hypocritical with violence. The way the film is made, I also understand that this movie is likely meant to…

    Barry Lyndon


    Sir, let those laugh that win.

    Am I going to be the asshole that looks himself in the mirror and says to himself "Barry Lyndon is boring, needlessly long, and just not very good.", then proceed to type that out on Letterboxd dot com? I suppose tonight, yes, yes I am. I just did not connect with this at all, and it easily made for the most disappointing watch I've had in some time. I can at the bare minimum…
