    Shrek 2

    ★★★★★

    It took me 16 years to finally give this movie the 5 star rating it unironically deserves. Every scene is great. Every joke lands. It's emotionally moving. It's incredibly exciting. It's a fucking miracle of a movie, I cannot stress that enough

    Fuck it 5 stars

  • Heathers

    Heathers

    ★★★

    Stilted and awkward in a lot of ways; while it does tell a compelling story and offer a handful of great quotes, it does it with such little energy and poor pacing that it's really hard to get invested.

    I should mention that I'm a massive fan of Heathers the Musical, which takes the elements of this film that work and really goes all out in crafting an outrageous, tense, compelling comedy-thriller. This film is more of a novelty as…

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★★½

    Wish I could erase this film from my mind just so I can watch it for the first time all over again

    ★★★★½

    Imagine thinking this isn't the best superhero movie of the 2010s lmfao

  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend

    ★★★★½

    Everything I could've hoped for and more. Unironically better than Bandersnatch. It helps that I'm a huge fan of the show already, but I feel like even if you're not, you'll still have a ton of fun with it. Give it a playthrough or five

    ★★★★★

    Always hits the spot no matter how many times I rewatch it. This is gonna be a fun video!

  • Flushed Away

    Flushed Away

    ★★★½

    Simon Pegg and Nick Frost really let themselves go

  • Rise of the Guardians

    Rise of the Guardians

    ★★★½

    Pretty good but the villain sucks ass. It looks like a car ran over his face. How did his design ever get approved. I expect much higher quality character design from the studio behind Shark Tale

  • Over the Hedge

    Over the Hedge

    ★★★½

    Fun fact: the animals in this movie do not, in fact, go OVER the titular hedge. They go THROUGH it. I hope someone got fired for that blunder

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    I take back every mean thing I ever said about Attack of the Clones.

  • Her

    Her

    ★★★★

    I didn't like this movie when I was 15 and I think I was just an idiot back then because this is really great. Very smart screenplay that showcases Theodore's loneliness and Samantha's insecurities in increasingly profound and sad ways.

    I just...don't really care for the last arc of the movie? It doesn't feel very well set up and it didn't really hook me emotionally like the rest of the film. Still, it's really touching and I'm gonna go punch 15-year-old me in the face for saying otherwise
