    ★★★★½

    I’ll be honest, the first time I watched this movie everything in my mind was set on disliking it. I agreed with (and to an extent still do) the idea that Tessa Thompson didn’t necessarily pass. I’d seen her in enough movies that were in color to imagine that i wouldn’t be able to suspend my disbelief. Boy was I wrong. The performances were stellar but the film still left me a bit lost which I now attribute to a…

    ★★★★½

    When I was younger I used to cry a lot. It wasn’t something I was proud of at the time. I wanted to hold everything in. I know now that there’s nothing wrong with that as it means you’re in touch with your emotions. Regardless of that I still attended to hold everything in even if I’m getting better. These days I still to an extent-I rarely cry. But I do try to feel every emotion I can whenever possible.…

    ★★★★

    Exquisitely crafted and incredibly well made but something about it kept me extremely detached from the story emotionally. Whenever I watch a ‘classic’ I usually know what the bigger elements of the story are: I knew the ending of thelma and louise before seeing it, I knew that guy was giving a monologue in rain in blade runner and I even knew his breaking bad ended way before starting it. But watching this movie knowing the way this relationship ends…

    All About My Mother

    ★★★½

    It’s a mess but a pretty well done one. I really enjoyed sitting through this film and I was pretty entertained with it for most of the time—but there’s just certain parts of this I found strange and it’s not very dissimilar to how I feel about Almodóvar’s work in general. He’s very hit or me and in his best work he stays in his lane. This movie has him in said lane and then he drifts from side to…

    ★★★★

    Incredibly well done and poetic. It’s simultaneously inviting and haunting with a tricky tone that constantly teeters between light-hearted and melancholy.Feels like a great way to show how life goes on after traumatic experiences. There’s always an after and there’s always multiple ways to live through it. Jenna Ortega is stellar and the cast all around is pretty excellent. The heaviness of the subject matter is definitely gonna take awhile to sink in for me but I still heavily recommend it. We’re gonna be talking about this one for a while

    ★★★★½

    One of the gayest movies I’ve ever seen in the best way possible. There’s something neat intoxicating about how fun and vibrant this movie manages to be while also being extremely and sadly accurate to the gay experience. The cast has insane chemistry, 
    and the script is hilarious with some of the funniest throwaway jokes I’ve seen in recent comedies and the most intriguing romances I’ve seen in awhile. Not to mention (I’m allowed to actually since it’s pride month)…
