    Spring Breakers

    ★★★★★

    Originally when I first saw this I hated it. I was very young, and I found myself bored. Since then I’ve seen this like 4 or 5 times, and each time it gets better and better. Thankfully I recognize this as the masterpiece that this is. It plays out like a cinematic fever dream, reminiscing more of a music video than a traditional film. James Franco is electric, and the four leading ladies also shine. This film also features what…

    How did the Academy just not nominate every song for that year? 

    Real talk, this movie means so much to me. It’s hard to put into words the impact it’s had on me. Everything about it just works so well. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are the perfect duo. Damien Chazelle is a master behind the camera. I’ve seen it countless times, and it never gets old. I love this film so much. If you’ve somehow never seen this please give it a watch. Even if you don’t fall in love with it like I have, there’s plenty to admire.

    FML Scavenger Hunt 28 Task #6: Watch a film starring someone who played the hero in an MCU film/show

    I love a good adventure film, and this one delivered. This is definitely the best performance I’ve seen from Charlie Hunnam. He’s great here, as is Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller. I love how the film had a sense of adventure during the exploration scenes. The story was interesting, even with the sometimes too slow pacing. The film covers a lot and I do think this might’ve benefited from being a limited series. Still, what we got was very interesting and I really enjoyed it.

    FML Scavenger Hunt 28 Task #3: Watch a movie with a character that is a teacher/professor or has a scene with a classroom/lesson

    While this does sometime get enamored but it’s own style a bit too much I thought this was a good meditation on grief and depression. I absolutely loved the use of color saturation, and Colin Firth gives a top tier performance. It might not be as deep as it thinks it is but it’s still an impressive directorial debut from Tom Ford.

    When We Were Bullies

    ½

    Fuck this short. This basically boils down to “screw the person who was bullied, the bully’s feelings matter more”. Just so self indulgent in the worst way possible. Jay Rosenblatt doesn’t care about the kid he bullied, he just wants to make himself look good. He literally says that the bullied kid doesn’t matter to the film, and says since he has experienced tragedy that he feels his pain and that they are one and the same. As someone who has been bullied this really pisses me off. Rosenblatt tries to absolve himself, but he basically proves that he is still a bully with this film.

    All Too Well: The Short Film

    I thought Taylor Swift moved past the “crying over guys” phase of her career. Like, I get the song is a fan favorite and making a music video for the fans makes sense. But this “short film” (it’s more of a glorified music video) comes off incredibly petty since it’s based off of a relationship that happened nearly a decade ago. The film itself is just very poorly written (I’m talking about the brief dialogue, not the song) and the…
