    Halloween

    ★★★★

    i gotta be real with everyone. i think when i first watched this, i had seen a few stinkers in a row, put this on, heard the dad utter the line “aw man, I got peanut butter on my penis” within the first 15 minutes, and had a bad taste in my mouth (pause) for the rest of the film. this time, however, energized by the spooky time of year and having seen a few great horror flicks lately, fully…

    Happy Death Day 2U

    ★★½

    lemme get uhhhhhhhhh muddled, convoluted, lore-heavy sequel, to a very fun, playful movie

    Happy Death Day

    ★★★½

    one of my many, horror/comedy, comfort movies. go babies!

  • There's Someone Inside Your House

    There's Someone Inside Your House

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    lemme get this straight, because i’m genuinely baffled rn…the first few victims’ secrets, which they were brutally murdered for, were:
    - bullying and beating the shit out of a gay kid
    - hosting a white supremacist podcast
    ……and then…
    - taking fentanyl?????
    call me crazy but one of these things is not like the other

  • Don't Breathe

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★★

    shit rocked, imo! really innovative concept that opens up a whole new world of suspense. things just kept getting better and better…until they didn’t. around the 3/4 mark, it kinda runs out of fun stuff to do w the camera + scares, and the ending/s dragged on for a bit too long. really enjoyed this tho

  • Swiped: Hooking Up in the Digital Age

    Swiped: Hooking Up in the Digital Age

    ham-fisted as hell. the woman they have talking about how *porn is bad* is breast feeding during the interview, the gay guy that they have talking about loving dick pics is wearing a shirt with penises on it, the frat bros are fist bumping eachother while talking about hooking up with multiple girls in one night, and there are ~dozens~ of shots of restaurants/bars where every single person is on their phone. it’s a shame that they stereotype everything so dramatically, because all the info/points they bring up are relatively interesting and coherent — but the whole thing never goes anywhere beyond the surface level

  • Unhinged

    Unhinged

    ★★½

    a hall-of-fame inductee into the “why didn’t this character just do this instead of this” canon. short and relatively entertaining tho!

  • Squid Game

    Squid Game

    ★★★★

    pretty good! I think things peaked in the middle episodes when we were fully immersed into the setting of the games, but hadn’t really encountered the VIP’s/big twists yet. all the new things stuffed at the end didn’t exactly land for me. absolutely stan Sae-Byeok and Ali tho

  • The Guilty

    The Guilty

    extremely non-engaging 🤞 only watch this if you want a POV of what it’s like to be on the phone with a more annoying version of Jake Gyllenhaal

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    pretty gross imo! performative is an understatement for how this deals with an incredibly difficult topic like rape culture. this movie glamorizes what it shouldn’t and doesn’t pack the emotional gut-punch that it tries to. was intrigued by the trailer, have been wanting to watch it forever, and finally when i get the chance to — it’s so disappointing.

  • Titane

    Titane

    ★★★★

    go into this movie raw. read as little about it as you can and see it in theaters. my (hopefully concise) review will follow. i feel like i can babble on forever about this but i’ll try to make it quick.
    ✨✨✨✨✨
    between the shot composition, the body horror, sound editing, music choices, and everything else…this is absolutely one of a kind. it’s worth the watch just for the combination of technical skill and provocation. with that being said, i…

  • Malignant

    Malignant

    ★★★★½

    i don’t even have the words to describe what i just fucking saw. was skeptical in the beginning, got ready to dismiss it as lame as it progressed…….and then it busts the absolute fuck open. highly recommend seeing it just for the experience alone


    edit after driving home from the theater: increasing from 4 to 4.5 stars just because they had the balls to make this. so fucking sick
