    Toy Story

    ★★★★★

    That’s human nature isn’t it, when something new comes along, we throw away the old and replace it with the new. I get it, I really do but I just don’t understand why we let it happen to the things that doesn’t need to be replaced for something “better” or “newer”, when most of the time it’s either a scam or it’s poorer quality than what it was before. Sorry, the symbolism in this film depresses me but at least…

    “And why haven’t you killed me yet?”

    Vincent is my Joker. Vincent is my Anton Chigur. Vincent is my favorite villain to have ever been portrayed on screen as of yet. People talk about character studies, well, this is by far my favorite character to study. If a narcissistic killing machine can make me empathize with him, then I have all the respect in the world to praise the writing on this one. That goes without saying, the performances from…

    “We’ll give them the reality this time. A washed-up old man with no friends, no distribution deal, wife on the rocks, people laughin’ at him, feelin’ sorry for himself.”

    Dear Stevesie,

    You forgot “egotistical”, “a thief”, “misogynistic”, “homophobic”, “a dead beat father”, “inconsiderate” and much more. I can see why you lived half your life under the sea, is that why you didn’t blow up the Jaguar Shark because it represented you, the people you pushed away, only to be…

    “Fly, you fools!”

    [Extended Edition]
     So happy to revisit the cultural phenomenon that this trilogy still endures amongst average movie goers and cinephiles alike. I knew I was going to appreciate this a little more with a rewatch at this age that I am at now but I had no idea that I would be emotionally invested within the characters as I was in this initial review. I knew I was going to be amazed by the world building, the…

    Episode 1: The Ocean
    The mother walrus trying to find a place to rest for her little baby walrus. I’m pretty sure this segment will touch every heart out there. Almost had me in tears for how nurturing the mother walrus is.

    Episode 2: The Deep
    The freakiest, scariest but also in my opinion most mystifying part of the ocean; the deepest part. Now I won’t spoil every animal as you must see them with your own eyes but I…

    Episode 1: 1:23:45
    Most of us have seen a wide variety of different types of horror; creature horror, torture horror, smart horror, slasher horror, psychological horror, whatever the type it is, there is nothing more horrific and nightmarish than watching the character Anatoly Dyatlov being deputy chief engineer during this catastrophe, along with innocent bystanders breathing in poison without knowing it. The character Dyatlov may be a bit exaggerated for how much of an idiot he is but nonetheless, not…

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    Couldn’t think of a better movie to watch for my new 4K television. I also couldn’t think of a better movie to watch for my first official review. I’ve been absent for what seems like quite awhile. Anyways, I thought I would review a movie consistently in a different format compared to what I was accustomed of doing before. I’ll first begin with random thoughts and feelings about the movie, what I enjoyed, what I didn’t enjoy, what my favorite…
