    ★★★

    So I didn’t get this movie. I understand the role of Tommy Lee Jones but like idk it didn’t live up to the hype and was a lot less meaningful than anticipated.

    Ex Machina

    ★★★

    I loved the feel of the movie, but I could see everything that happened from like a mile away. I really don’t have a high tolerance for predictable sci-fi, but the topic of AI was addressed so well that I won’t rate it too poorly.

  • West Side Story

    West Side Story

    ★★★★½

    Honestly this was really one of the best adaptations of West Side Story I’ve seen. The rewritten script gave the characters so much more humanity, especially when it came to Maria. My only complaint about the new scenes is that they were a little long, and musicals tend to have short scenes so The pacing was iffy sometimes. Rachel Zegler was INCREDIBLE and should have at least an Oscar nomination. She was miles above Natalie Wood’s kinda cringey Maria (rip…

    Oh my god anxiety but wow I really loved this. I have never seen this side of Jennifer Lawrence and was really really impressed.

    The Lost Daughter

    ★★½

    I think this was just way too melodramatic for me to believe at points. I get what it was trying to do, but it is not my taste.

  • The Eyes of Tammy Faye

    ★★★½

    Jessica Chastain fucking transforms in this. It’s a little over produced, but it matches the tone of who Tammy Faye was so it works.

    Really the best acting performance I’ve ever seen

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★

    Predictable with some cringe dialogue but overall one of my favorite Marvel movies. The visuals and fight choreography were probably the best yet.

    Ok I know like no one likes this movie but I’m kinda obsessed

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★½

    Look, I truly think most of the criticism rests on the fact that a lot of the humor hits too close to home. Talking to a lot of other people, I think that the humor fell flat because it’s really a sad reflection of the current control of big tech and the divisive political rhetoric. It’s a prime example of humor that is “too soon” to be funny. I honestly just got pretty depressed afterwards, despite the movie’s predictability. I…
