  • The Passion of the Christ

    The Passion of the Christ

    ★★★★

    great movie for the whole family after an easter dinner...

  • Romeo + Juliet

    Romeo + Juliet

    ★★★½

    The pacing is by far the biggest issue, but I don't get why this isn't talked about more.
    At first glance, the audience will roll their eyes (as I did myself). But as you let the film breathe it becomes all the more impressive.
    The performances are somehow pretty decent with the original Shakespeare screenplay, the direction is honestly incredible, and the cinematography is kinda nuts (in a good way).

    Watching this alone was kinda sad and made me feel like I was on acid, but other than that a pretty fun watch!

  • Steve Jobs

    Steve Jobs

    ★★★★★

    I still can't understand the reason why this is seemingly the most underappreciated film of the past decade...



    but if it's because of the airpods max... that's fair

  • Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★

    Not gonna lie my family was eating sushi while eating this and we had some homemade wasabi to go along with it.
    So first off wanna say that wasabi can flip right off...
    And second, this movie is fantastic. But you guys knew that so I'll stick to writing reviews about things that are actually interesting... like wasabi... I guess.

  • The Trial of the Chicago 7

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★½

    I've been trying to get my parents to watch all the best picture nominees with me and every time I suggest this one they ask "what's it about?" And every time I simply have to say "it's about a courtroom drama" but quickly remembering that I still haven't looked up the synopsis.
    So lo and behold I am the most grateful to Sorkin for not making me look like an idiot in front of my parents by writing a complexly written screenplay and naming it in the most simplistic fashion possible.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

  • Singin' in the Rain

    Singin' in the Rain

    ★★★★½

    Any person who says they don't like musicals obviously hasn't seen Singin' In The Rain...

  • WandaVision

    WandaVision

    ★★½

    Wait... why is this on letterboxd again?

  • Rope

    Rope

    ★★★½

    From an objective standpoint of an aspiring filmmaker like myself (or any filmmaker for that matter), this was very impressive.
    By far one of the most interesting ideas/techniques this puts forth is simply the cultural impact it's had on filmmaking (especially in the case of the long take).
    So incredibly well-directed, well-shot, well-written. Why am I not praising this film and everything it accomplishes.
    Well, that's just the thing. I don't really find this to have accomplished anything by the…

  • Steve Jobs

    Steve Jobs

    ★★★★★

    "god sent his only son on a suicide mission - but we like him anyway because he made trees..."

    Yeah, I'll keep watching as long as you guys keep neglecting to watch this beautiful painting.
    You go ahead and tell me that this movie isn't a painting and see what happens...
