    mia goth absolutely nails pearl and i already know she'll be the next great female heroine. this film was iconic and it's probably my favorite one of the year 👌🏻

    My Policeman

    ★★★½

    "My Policeman" has been one of my favorite novels for a while so I was very excited to hear it was coming to the big screen. I hoped for a good cast and a good director as this storyline was one of the most beautiful pieces I've read and has the potential to be the next "Call Me By Your Name". the cinematography and score left me in awe as there were stunning shots of Brighton here, also really felt…

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★★½

    while I do agree the film had an inconsistent screenplay + plotholes, I enjoyed it. the pacing of the first half was too slow for me but once it reached its climax, I found it to be exhilarating with a worthy conclusion. Chris Pine was great and Florence Pugh was a powerhouse as always, Harry Styles isn't as bad as others say but I already know Shia would have crushed this. overall: an interesting but unoriginal concept matched with somewhat…

    ★★★

    this had a lot going for it with Ana de Armas' performance, the cinematography, and the production design. I do admit that there are some stand-out shots and scenes here that looked like Picasso paintings and were executed beautifully. the biggest problem is the incredibly weak and self-indulgent screenplay. I understood that it was going for a tragedy, descent to madness type representation but it just appeared obnoxious. like Elvis, I didn't like how these films kept on pounding on…

    ★★★

    some issues I have with this: first, who's idea was it to include modern-day hip hop and pop artists on a soundtrack about Elvis Presley in an era of blues during the 50s-70s? it didn't match with the film at all and it threw me off since I believe Baz's biggest strength is his ability to transport you into his world. second, the storytelling here was repetitive and was not worth the 2 hr 38 runtime. I also didn't appreciate…

    simple but compelling, one of the finer movies I've seen this year.

    ★★★★

    I just loved that final shot, great lesson for those who feel small and not valued: you are unique and important to this world. a personal movie as I'm a fan of traveling, this is the one thing I hope everyone experiences. as shown here, you can learn a lot of things about yourself and others through your travel. you learn about different cultures, perspectives, and ideals. you also grow as a person learning how to become "uncomfortable" and independent. in my opinion, this is one of the keys to making the world a much more peaceful place: invest on experiences not things!

    ★★★½

    entered this film blindly, didn't watch the trailer, and tried to avoid any sort of affiliation with it. this is more of a sci-fi type film over a horror that we are used to from Peele. it is something different, but a good kind of different. Keke Palmer and Brandon Perea shined in their roles and gave the film that much-needed light and humor. I'm not big into supernatural and alien-type atmospheres but this film managed to inhabit that while…

    ★★★★½

    recommend this if ur into fever dream-type films like me. it had some corny 2000s-Esque montages but it's very thought-provoking and philosophical. it reminded me of "the game" and "meet joe black" when it comes to going to extreme lengths to teach a lesson on choices and morality. great score too, one of tom cruise's most underrated films IMO.

  • The Gray Man

    The Gray Man

    ★★★

    despite having the obvious advantage of a big budget, "the gray man" kept me gripped to my seat with non-stop fun and action. the cinematography may have looked messy but it worked for me and gave the film an "edge”. movies don't always have to be deep to be enjoyed, they can be good popcorn fun and this is a good example of that. would be excited for a possible sequel, a rare and much-needed W for Netflix.
