    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★½

    So...
    I just saw Bennedict Cumberbatch's butt?

  • Silver Linings Playbook

    Silver Linings Playbook

    ★★★½

    This is a really solid movie, with a really solid screenplay.

    J Lo and Bradley Cooper were amazing, specially Lawrence.

    It starts amazing but I feel it falls off towards the end, kinda looses it's identity and ends up being a bit cliché, although it is truly enjoyable and I feel like there's quite a lot to unpack from this film, definitely one of those films you have to rewatch to try and get the whole picture.

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    ★★★½

    I didn't understand shit but this has to be one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen in my life.

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★½

    I can't BELIEVE how good this films look for it's time. If you told me this was shot in 2015 i'd believe you instantly.
    Technically this movie is as close to perfect as you can possibly get. The lights, cinematograhpy, photography, directing... Everything it's just perfect.
    But it is not scary anymore, the puppets, although pretty impressive still, feel so out of place in comparison to how good everything looks in here. Every time the Alien showed up, the magic vanished for me... And that's kind of a big deal considering the movie is called "Alien"

    I still really liked it tho.
