    Okay wow. I knew this was going to be good but I didn’t think I’d love it as much as I did. 

    Emotional, powerful, and flat out brilliant. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper give off 2 of the most powerful performances of 2018. Just pure talent all throughout this film. Their chemistry together was absolutely incredible from start to finish. After seeing this I think it might be safe to say that this is definitely Lady Gaga’s year.

    “Will god forgive us for what we’ve done to his creation?”

    I want to start off by saying that this was an absolute incredible film. Ethan Hawke delivers the performance of the year. Amanda Seyfried also gives off an incredible performance. There are only a couple of films that I truly love that anchor 1 performance. There really wasn’t a frame in this film that didn’t have Ethan Hawke in it. The 3rd Act Of this movie is so suspenseful…

            Chazelle’s direction was great. The old fashioned quality and Claire Foy were hands down my favorite parts of this film. First Man definitely spent a lot of time on the personal dramas but in my opinion failed displaying them. I don’t really want to blame Gosling but It felt like a miscast. Gosling did do a great job in the scenes when Armstrong would have flashbacks with his daughter.…

     It’s pretty hard for me to try to explain this movie because honestly, you just need to see it for yourself. Great performances, stunning cinematography, and I loved the mysterious storyline through the first 2 acts. The first 2 acts started off fantastic but the third act took a very weird route and drove further away from the “thriller/mystery” aspect of the film. Overall I did enjoy this and it was way more badass than it ever needed to be. Also my fault because I went into this with very high expectations and I hope you don’t make the same mistake.

    “When you drove through Sacramento... Was it emotional?”

    I want to just take the time and review this. I don’t think I wrote these kind of reviews back when I saw this in the theaters. I remember going into this with nothing but pretty high expectations. I heard the hype around this so I ended up seeing for myself. And this film exceeded my expectations more than any movie has ever for me. Lady Bird is a phenomenal and emotional…

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO what the fuck was this?? The worst dialogue, action, humor, and acting I’ve seen in awhile. Hands down the worst movie of 2018 and honestly it’s the worst film I’ve seen in years. Michelle Williams & Tom Hardy.... WHY did you agree to be in this?
