Am I am a good film critic? Probably not. Am I witty? Absolutely not. But do I try to be both of those things? YOU BET I DO.

    Thirty, flirty, and thriving.

    I wish I could wake up when I'm 30 and look like Jennifer Garner.

    Also, seeing Jenna's boyfriend dancing around in his underwear edges me even closer to believing I'm absolutely, completely not into men.

    Scavenger Hunt 64 // Task 8

    Watch a film by a Black director or screenwriter.

    I've been meaning to watch this film since it came out, and now feels like a better time than any.

    I shared my thoughts about this in a Twitter thread but I'll paste it all here too.

    I never cry at films because my heart is made of stone, but I'm watching The Hate U Give and I'm a mess even though I've read the…

    I have no words. Incredible and devastating. Now I can see why Anthony Hopkins had to get that Oscar.

    I read the book very recently so I can't help but compare the two, and generally, I think the film is a pretty good adaptation!

    However, in terms of plot, the film starts halfway through the book, meaning we don't get to see any of Cameron's backstory, family history, growing up to realise she might be gay etc - and I think this results in us not really having much a connection with her or what she's going through. In…

    Scott earned the Power of Self-Respect.

    This is one of the most creative films I've ever seen. I can't think of a better word to describe it.

    The visuals, the animations, the music choices, and everything come together into this big chaotic jumble that just works. So good!

    (Half a star off because I wish Ramona could have just been bisexual instead of her female ex being a "phase when she was bicurious". Bisexuals get enough slack for their sexuality…

    In case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight.

    This was so good!! So clever - the whole concept is just incredible (and the product placement idea is genius).

    I started watching it but I was tired so started again the next day, and I already spotted things I'd missed the first time around. Definitely one I need to rewatch and see if I can spot even more - I feel like it's the kind of thing…
