    WandaVision

    ★★★★½

    Hello to all of my fellow casual Marvel audience (who weren’t fan enough to watch this as it was just being released and is still deciding whether they should now), this was super worth the binge!! 👏🏻  I was hesitant to watch this at first but after reading all the praises about it, and seeing spoilers about the sitcom arrangement, I decided that I should! Loved the execution and the concept. The last few episodes had me excited for Doctor…

    By Angge

    "The first time, it's always as if you're dying."

    Landscape in the Mist is unexpectedly heartbreaking and transcends its medium into something so much more: a poem? A distressing fairytale? The film has a simple plotline of two children finding their estranged father and yet there is so much meaning to be found beneath the surface. The children are on a journey in search of something that they’re not sure is…

  • The Palm Beach Story

    The Palm Beach Story

    ★★★★½

    If there’s one takeaway from the Preston Sturges binge I had today, it is my love for classic screwball comedies. The Palm Beach Story isn’t as thematically resonating as Sullivan’s Travels nor has it the staying power of entertainment that The Lady Eve has but it is definitely worth the watch. Claudette Colbert is stunning and delivers in every shot, and Joel McCrea is suitable in the role of grumpy, ex-husband but the highlight of the film for me was…

  • Welcome to the Dollhouse

    Welcome to the Dollhouse

    ★★★

    Sinegang 2nd Weekly Pick Cycle: Pick #4
    By Xena

    This melancholy black comedy follows a socially awkward main character, Dawn Wiener, played by a young Heather Matarazzo, who finds herself being bullied and unwelcome in a society that deems her to be the opposite of a “pretty” doll. I am usually in love with dark comedies, yet I found little funny in this film, and more of an aching tragedy as Dawn navigates the minefields of middle school. Todd Solondz…

    Sinegang 2nd Weekly Pick Cycle: Pick #1
    By Denise

    The Cranes are Flying is a powerful story of the effect of war, and I find myself reeling in the midst of the humanity we find in Veronika and Boris. From the brilliant direction to the stirring performance of the late Tatiana Samoilova (whom the camera seems to love so much), this film was able to contrast between the horrors and the heroism that occurred during its setting, all while depicting…

  • Spring Breakers

    Spring Breakers

    ★★★★½

    I honestly love this. ISNT TRASH AT ALL!!! YA'LL ARE LYING IF U SAY IT IS!!! The pink hood and yellow bikini outfit SHOULD 👏 BE 👏 ICONIC 👏 BY NOW!!!

    P.S. Threesome scene was a scam. Linus and Jason are liars

  • Bonnie and Clyde

    Bonnie and Clyde

    ★★★★★

    Yes!! I love this so much. This is the movie I should’ve grown up with. 😩 This is the love story I should’ve looked up to. Warren Beatty wearing a hat bears a resemblance to Alain Delon and I 👏🏻 am 👏🏻 here 👏🏻 for 👏🏻 it!!! I knew from the moment a half-naked Bonnie looked out the window and spotted Clyde that I was going to love this film. Bonnie and Clyde give us everything a biographical drama crime…

  • Laurence Anyways

    Laurence Anyways

    ★★★★

    I think it was about a week ago today when I realized how I’m a 22-year-old “cinephile” who has a year more to go before graduating. This means I spend half of my time parked in front of my computer screen and the other half parked in front of the television screen in our living room whenever my parents aren’t around in case a sex scene comes on. Long story short, I was having an existential crisis. WHICH IS WHY…

  • Malcolm & Marie

    Malcolm & Marie

    ★★★½

    Malcolm & Marie has its moments. I can imagine the onslaught of reviews waiting to be typed that hasn’t yet, praising the performances of both Zendaya and John David Washington. Emotions are breathtakingly raw where we see two actors who dedicated themselves to the material. 
        I found myself hanging on to every word of the dialogue of the film. From Marie’s heartbreaking takes on being taken for granted (“I feel like once you know someone's there for you, and…

  • Lola

    Lola

    ★★★★½

    During the span of ninety minutes, I have fallen in love with Anouk Aimee several times over. 💋 Demy gives us a beautifully shot black-and-white for his debut film, making it known early on that he was going to be one of the best. Lola is not only charming, graceful, amusing, and pensive – qualities which I find myself looking for whenever I watch a film nowadays – but it is also whimsical fun.
        My heart aches for…

  • A Streetcar Named Desire

    A Streetcar Named Desire

    ★★★★

    It is criminal  how I find more praises (and simping 😡) for Marlon Brando than Vivien Leigh in this film, especially when you consider her virtuoso portrayal of Blanche DuBois and the fact that he turned out to be a rapist (in real life.)
        I find that there is nothing much to say (I’m too angry at life and Marlon Brando right now) except that A Streetcar Named Desire is absolutely heartbreaking and whisks you away into a…

  • The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

    The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

    ★★★★★

    I am waking up from a perfect dream filled with the presence of Nino Castelnuovo and Catherine Deneuve, where my ears are ringing with beautifully sung dialogues and my heart is reeling with unexpected emotion from such a film. The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is ageless, and another bittersweet reflection on how true love does not always conquer all, as Geneviève Emery put it so well, “I would have died for him. So why aren’t I dead?”
        I love…
