    ★★★½

    Honestly I think I wanted to like this movie more than I actually did. Cinematography was great, the writing was very natural to the point where it felt as though I was intruding on intimate conversations at times.

    But what the FUCK was that scene?? Alexa Demie who put you up to this??

    ★★★★½

    I made the mistake of taking an edible when I started this movie. As it was hitting me harder and harder, Robert De Niro's character, Travis Bickle, began spiraling further and further out of touch from reality. It really had me analyzing every aspect of De Niro's performance, from his exuberant, yet deranged body language to his manipulative dialogue, I was all in. 

    I loved how dark and mysterious the entire film was, lending to the way that Travis Bickle…

    Hancock

    I remember loving this as a kid which has me questioning how good the childhood movies I loved actually were. I get the whole "he's an antihero" trope but the blatant misogyny was a bit much for me.

    Iron Man came out the same year and had a smaller budget than Hancock so I am genuinely confused how the CGI was literally comically terrible. I would not be surprised if a large chunk of Hancock's budget went solely to getting…

    Listen, I don't have much time but I wanted to write and tell you that this is a phenomenal movie in quite literally every aspect. It was like batting in the most rigged game of baseball and the pitcher won't stop throwing curveballs; the pitcher of course being Christopher Nolan.

    Now, I can hear the dramatic symphony music playing so I should wake up any seco-

    ★★★

    This popped up on my recommended videos on Youtube, so naturally I decided to watch it. Honestly felt as though I had to force myself to sit and watch it. I thought certain parts were funny but it really didn't make up for how uninteresting the rest of the monologue was. I enjoyed the directing but it wasn't enough for redemption. The editing I felt was distracting as well from the monologue being spoken. The change of topic and scenery every 30 seconds made it hard to follow.

    I realized I have not seen much of Robert Pattinson's work other than the first Twilight (that was really enough for me from that series) so I decided to watch this one. I saw it was A24 and honestly that was all I needed to be convinced.

    Pattinson's acting was phenomenal, somehow he managed to be the protagonist and antagonist at the same time. The entire film created such a convincing "on the run" story, making the viewer unsure what…

    ★★

    You ever start a movie and within ten minutes you can already figure out how the movie will end? Yeah this was one of those. It was honestly probably one of the most predictable movies I have ever seen. Not only this but the movie utilized such stereotypical scenarios to try and get a laugh from the audience they might as well have put a "laugh" sign at the top of the frame during the comedic moments.

    The strongest aspect…

    ★★★★

    I went into this one skeptical of the positive reviews that I had heard from friends. Thankfully I can say that I agree with the positive reviews, it was a good movie. The Invisible Man combined so many different sub-genres within "horror," it is almost hard to pin it as just one. Somehow it managed to be a psychological thriller, slasher, and a paranormal/supernatural film at the same time.

    I especially loved how the entire film spoke on the ongoing…

    I got h*gh as hell with friends and watched this and it can be summed up in one word: drugs. Dr. Suess was on some shit when he wrote this one I just know it. This movie felt like what I imagine a bad acid trip is like.

    On another note though, the set design and costumes are somehow good? Trust me, I'm just as confused writing that as you are reading it.

    Also, something feels inherently pedophilic about this…

    ★★★★

    Just finished watching this after watching it here and there over the span of 3 days. I think it took me so long to actually sit down and finish it because the subject matter was so hard for me to watch at times. It felt a little one-toned, but I think that actually worked in the favor for the message throughout.

    The cinematography was incredible and the lighting felt so intimate and real. So real at times that, as a…

    ★★★★★

    I finished this movie about 5 minutes ago, and it's one of those where you just sit and think afterwards. This movie touched on so many important topics within its two-hour run time that it almost feels like I watched an entire season of a television show rather than a movie. The characters are humanized in such a way that you can start to know what they are thinking even in scenes of silence. Somehow those scenes propelled the story…
