    2001: A Space Odyssey

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I mean... this is the perfect movie. I actually feel it's almost pointless writing about it, simply cause it has been talked to death - from its absolutely masterful directing to the groundbreaking special effects and the perfectly complimentary soundtrack. So instead of talking about all that, I wanna talk about something no one else talks about (or possibly even cares about)... 2001: A Space Odyssey's view of humanity.

    2001, telling a very unconventional story and lacking a conventional protagonist,…

    Before a rewatch, my memory was of this being among the worst of the Harry Potter franchise. Afterwards, I actually think it's one of the best.Β 

    Yes, it is probably a bit too long. But I actually find the pacing to be much improved over its predecessor - if only because there's a much more compelling mystery to uncover here. I also admire how naturally this opens up the overall wizarding world, with the first mentions of the Ministry of…

    Look, it's gonna sound cheesy but, honestly, this is... kind of magical? The grandiose sets... the iconic score... even the direction is a lot more inspired than I had remembered before a rewatch.

    I'm not sure it's a great movie (the pacing really does suffer from pretty much the moment we enter Hogwarts onwards), but it's a damn near perfect adaptation of the source material. And I gotta give Chris Columbus credit for that. Oh, and the fact that he…

    I grew up in the South. I went to church every Sunday. I attended a Christian school for the first eighteen years of my life. And, I gotta say, having moved far away from all of that in the years since - this movie is fucking hilarious to me. Of course, it's terrible. Of course, it's brainwashing. Of course, these people are absolute hypocrites doing the very same things they claim their "enemies" in the Middle-East are doing. But having…

    Hereditary is a movie that sticks with you like no other. In his feature directorial debut, Ari Aster solidifies himself as a master of modern horror - not through the use of cheap jump scares but through the creation of real psychological dread. The way the plot slowly unfolds, turning these characters into cogs in a soulless, uncaring machine is simply incredible - and is even echoed in the way its shot, the Graham residence being made to resemble one…
