    The Thing

    ★★★★★

    Man, still the best horror film I've ever seen. It's absolutely off-putting how The Thing manages to be so disturbing, so utterly repulsive, and so horrifying even after all these years and after repeated viewings. I swear the practical effects in this film are the best of it's kind that I have seen, it's a shame they're not as common in modern film anymore. The paranoia in this film is just so palpable, and the writing so fluid and natural.…

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★★

    With the singular exception of the three Lord of the Rings movies, Terminator 2 is probably my favorite film of all time behind the aforementioned LOTR films. Rewatching this masterpiece was, is, and always will be, a singularly cathartic, almost orgasmic experience for me. I know I dabble a lot in hyperbole, but for me personally, quite seriously, Terminator 2 is a fundamentally perfect movie.

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★★

    The Lighthouse: *Is an intricately complex, nuanced and layered film about regret, guilty, abuse, addiction, fear, feeling of inadequacy, insecurity, honesty, about 100 other things, and, well, possible the meaning of life, while being intensely entertaining and interesting with phenomenal acting, direction, cinematography and sound design. In many ways it is close to perfect for what it is aiming to be.*

    Me, an Intellectual: "Man, Robert Pattinson and his awesome mustache just make back-breaking 1890's labour look so cool"

    Comradeship

    ★★★★

    *Massive French Mine Disaster happens*

    *Frenchmen and Germans help each other out of solidarity to save as many of the miners as possible*

    Frenchmen and Germans Afterwards: "We are united as workers! We must not let wars separate us! French or German, we will work together and be friends!"

    WW2: "Hmm don't mind me, coming through, excuse me"

    -----

    Very heartfelt and touching film. Made in 1931, it's a bit prototypical, especially for what I and many of us have…

    Before the Flood

    ★★★

    In this film, we see Leonardo DiCaprio fly around the world in his expensive helicopters and private jets to impoverished countries and look concerned and rub his chin.

    An important documentary with an important message, no doubt about it. Climate Change is probably the greatest and most important challenge that we as a human species face today. It's nice to see someone as famous as Leonardo DiCaprio tackle the subject, since sometimes people require such a figure to grab their…

    A Clockwork Orange

    ★★★★★

    FUCK.

    How do I review this movie? How do I sit down and talk about what I just saw? I do not know how to review this movie, so excuse me if I don't go into humongous detail here, for A Clockwork Orange is perhaps one of the most thought-provoking yet downright violent and vulgar films I have seen in a very, very long time, a movie that is 2 hours and 15 minutes long yet feels way shorter than…
