    I fuckin' finally watched Saltburn.. this has been my most anticipated film ever since the trailer dropped. I tried watching it so many times but it's like if the universe was telling me nah you're not ready for this. It was worth the wait and I needed to be in the right headspace for this film.

    Barry Keoghan is such an intense actor, his performance as Oliver was just spine-chilling. Jacob Elordi has been killing it lately, definitely needed more…

    I'll need to rewatch this film sober because taking three edibles during this magnificent yet bizarre work of art was too puzzling to fully grasp.. what a trip.

    Definitely the weirdest film I've ever seen, I'd love to take a glimpse inside the mind of Yorgos Lanthimos.

    His filmmaking style is unique and mesmerizing. I loved those low angle shots and use of fish eye, I noticed Yorgos used that technique in The Favourite, I'm glad he approached that camerawork…

    Okay I see how many peeps didn't like this one, however I was too toasted to not find it kinda hilarious.

    It was like a bad 80s flick... strange hippie shit going on with out of place editing. Did Ethan Coen write this one summer day during his teens after hitting a roachie?

    I think the cameos were definitely my favorite... they were just so randomly placed. I loved seeing Pedro Pascal, though his part was very small.

    Not gonna lie if I wasn't high I'd probably wouldn't like this as much, it'd be the missing ingredient.

    Not your typical boogeyman story, however it wasn't unique enough to not be a clichΓ© horror film.

    I was mostly loving the cinematography, use of lighting, camerawork, and the soundtrack... just wish the screenplay went hand in hand with it all.

    I tried to enjoy it, but my mind kept thinking this gives It Follows vibes. The Hinduism was a cool approach, love seeing horror through other cultures.

    Bro really kissed the girl after she trauma dumped then lit up a joint...

    I think I found a new comfort film for Christmas.

    Only one bad thing about this movie.. it had to end, this hurt and healed within 2hrs. You know a film is great when you feel attached to it's world, I was living in it.

    Really loved the choice to shoot this in a 1970s aesthetic, felt like I was watching a classic.

    Already see myself throwing on The Holdovers during Christmas eve with some hot chocolate and popcorn.

    I was fully immersed in this film that 3hrs 26m felt like nothing. Scorsese continues to be one of the greatest filmmakers.

    Amazing script, set designs, costumes, and of course performances. DiCaprio is an phenomenal actor no doubt we all know that, but I think Lily Gladstone deserves all the spotlight because she absolutely nailed her role.

    I don't watch the same films often at the cinema, however this one definitely requires another watch or three on IMAX.

    Martin Scorsese's epilogue was genius, one of my favorite endings to a film. I swear if Gladstone doesn't get an academy nomination.. I'll riot.
