    If you didn’t like this movie I’m gonna screenshot it and send it to your boss

    The Death of Stalin

    ★★★★½

    Best part about being dumb is watching historical movies. I had no idea what was gonna happen after Stalin died.

    wow, first thing that happens is James Bond walks into frame and fires his gun at me, the viewer. I have never felt so disrespected in my entire life and expect better from a man wearing a tuxedo. One star.

    ★★★★½

    Chazelle makes movies about being exceptional. Which he is, and it’s why they feel so honest. Whiplash dealt with the personal cost of greatness. La La Land the guilt that not everyone with the talent is lucky about to succeed. First Man reconciled the toll it takes on your family, to follow a dream that means you can’t possibly be a good spouse or parent. I think this trajectory shows tremendous personal growth and I can’t wait to see what he does next.

    Also DP Linus Sandgren is the fucking truth. This should be a lock for best cinematography, easily the best of the year.
