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

    ye ye this was alright. i didn't know exactly where it was going, but i interpret the movie as purposefully being narrated by men who are dazzled by these young girls to show how the pain of women is always mystified and glorified.

    This movie kept continuously getting worse. At first, I thought I could empathise with the struggles of somebody that was obese,  and the bubble that surrounded him that made him unable to relate to other human beings (to be honest, mostly the other way around). But as the movie kept going on, the script kept bringing the movie down. 

    His daughter is one of the most annoying people I’ve ever seen in a movie. I wish that she died to be…

  • Oppenheimer


    genuinely great. the scale of making such a movie baffles me but here he hits it out of the park. the dialogue is still sometimes over dramatic, and the third act dragged ever so slightly but aside from that i was mesmerised the entire time. 

    oppenheimer is a complicated character, a portrait of someone with strong moral convictions who changed the world ultimately for the worst

    unfinished blender project + IP for netflix to steal off disney

    some great shots. entertaining throughout. but the close-ups make everyone look weird...and the pacing is sometimes inconsistent?

    idk i wanna like this movie, i really really do. but it just comes off as cheap in moments where it wants to convince you it's not.

    great acting all around from Christian WALKKiiiiin-ere and laurence fishburne

    though i love the miss-en-scene of this movie, the plot was predictable, i wanted to like the characters more, and the Whazuuuppppppp protagonist couldn’t save it. but still it’s not terrible. just not worth it

    wanted to like this movie, but i didn't. i was expected an autumn sonata but it dragged a lot. i notice how cassavetes includes a lot of subtlety in human behaviour to add depth to characters, and i appreciate that. i just don't think this movie made any real point that made me think or i found intriguing. not 4 me sadly

  • My Own Private Idaho

    My Own Private Idaho

    yeah i was pretty confused sometimes as to why people were talking in Shakespearean until i learned it's based on henry IV. but stylistically this film deserves all the flowers it gets, it has so many memorable moments.

    really love how sex scenes were depicted in this freeze-frame way - there's something quite intimate yet detached about it, and in some senses sends a more accurate and thought-provoking message about sex.

    ofc always love to see queer romances become normalised.…

    i was sceptical at first, but this was a great movie. despite its short run-length, it felt like a lot longer but in a good way.

    the acting was brilliant, and the direction is great. people spoke like people. nothing BLEW me away but to me, its one of those movies where less obvious problems are a testament to how well its been put together.

    genuinely so creative and horrifying at the same time. never watched this (even though i rinsed foster’s home) so glad to have seen this

    T2 Trainspotting

    i saw a horrible TV remake of the full monty on disney+ and it naturally got me thinking about this movie. i didn’t like this first time whatsoever, but i’m glad i randomly gave this a rewatch to appreciate it as a sequel.

    revisiting these characters, edinburgh, and themes from the first trainspotting actually felt real. i liked the lapses of an occasional experimental narrative throughout the movie, and how the story wounded up being. it felt really exciting, knowing…
