    ★★★★★

    Perfection in 100 minutes. Feel like I watched this very early in my ~cinema journey~ and while I adored it before there is just so much more I'm able to appreciate now. Feels like I was able to fill in the picture just a little bit more and I can't wait until my next viewing to explore even more!!!!!!!!!!!

    Camera work, shot comp, and cinematography in general obviii the most fabulous. Every scene a showstopping work of art I can't…

  • Repo Man

    ★★★★

    Huh... extremely incredibly great... couldn't tell you what it's really about but I also don't know if I should even be able to. An Experience for sure...

    Feel like this is a wayyy random collection of so many little statements and weird bits of imagery but not in a bad or sloppy way at all. Can't exactly explain it but to me it's like whatever Miller was saying about a net of connectivity. Like it all just works don't bother…

    Ough really good. Like her impact will span/already has spanned generations. Honestly perfectly written… can’t imagine it progressing any better than it did. Like the ending especially… good good stuff. Le slayest effects in the world TRULY. The 80s were a beautiful time for practical effects… most disturbing thing tbh was how much Kurt Russell looks like armie hammer. Uncanny similarities…. But anyways. Freaking amazing to see in theater, thought I missed my chance but I didn’t!!!! Very fun that everyone else there was so into it and excited too. Yaayayaya

  • Rushmore

    Rushmore

    ★★★★½

    Sooo freaking cute. Wes going from the mediocrity of Bottle Rocket immediately to this is very very much a slay. Like ohhh him and Owen took notes on those criticisms they really took that to heart... But anyways so so adorable. Jason Schwartzman is suchhh a charming little freak in this I can't even believe. Yes he's a creep yes I adore him what about it!!!! Great great camerawork obviii even without all the crazy style we get now. Love it as fuckkkk forever bye!

    What the freak

    Gross disturbing weird

    Felt like it thought it was being sooooo profound but idk these are not new themes or even stories… if you wanna act like this is a masterpiece give me a masterpiece ok!!! 

    Good performances good gore and body horror 

    Idkkk not love but did a good creepy job I guess!

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★½

    No homoeroticism 💔💔💔💔 no “Take My Breath Away”😢😢😢😢 but actually surprisingly quite good !

    Tom cruise is still terrifying 2 me. That’s a horrific man. But fine in this whatever. Miles Teller toooo scrumchuzz! 

    This is what blockbuster action movies should be. No one is expecting them to be profound artsy freaky shit. Just use that budget to deliver something nice looking and high quality and engaging!! A great looking picture and an entirely bearable storyline. Pretty yass for military propaganda I would say!
