    Spider-Man 2

    ★★★★½

    Was building (well, still am) the lego daily bugle and I put this on for background noise because - come on. It makes so much sense.

    First time I've watched this in God knows how long, I've noticed so much more from the characters and overall storytelling this time around. There's so much depth to Spider-Man 2 that I wasn't expecting. I was surprised at how well this movie has aged in a world where superhero movies dominate the market…

    ★★★½

    Tongue-in-cheek flick that celebrates and satires the slasher genre from one of the horror godfathers who helped popularize it. Scream is a very 90s horror comedy that's just fun to watch. It's fucked up when it needs to be, and humorous at the right times. 

    I don't have much to say about Scream, that doesn't mean I feel negative about it. Much like it's horror predecessors it pays homage to, it's a huge blockbuster film series practically everyone knows and because…

    I can already tell that 8 1/2 will be on my mind for a while. A film that will take a rewatch or two for me to fully understand and appreciate further. I was very encumbered by this film and felt the same anxieties and stress as the main character Guido felt. It wasn't a very comfortable watch but something I just couldn't stay away from. I had to see this through to the end.

    This is the first film…

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★½

    My thoughts are kind of conflicted. On one hand, I am very welcoming of Edgar Wright going full horror (even though he himself considers this to be a psychological thriller, but come on, it's horror.) but on another hand, I don't think I was too crazy as to how he went down this route.

    Last Night in Soho is a morally gray film and a none of the characters are portrayed in an either entirely positive or negative light. Some…

    I'm gonna beat the shit out of past Alex for only giving this a 3.5/5. It's incredibly smart and hilarious, so many moments where what seems like mindless dialogue or unnecessary scenes actually end up being a set up for something that happens later. Still can't get over how good the chemistry is between Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe.

    I'll forever be mad at audiences for not giving enough of a shit about this film. It deserved so much better. Hopefully Shane Black makes another crime comedy one of these days.
