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

    Everything about this film is perfect. The ending exchange between Park Doo-man and the little girl sent a chill down my spine even on the rewatch, probably one of the best endings to a crime thriller I've ever seen. How Bong Joon-Ho managed to make an ending where the characters fail to capture the serial killer and still make it an ending that shakes you to the core is beyond me, truly a masterclass of cinema.

    I love how this…

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★½

    Judas and the Black Messiah is about the story of Fred Hampton and the man who kills him. We spend a lot of time following the character of Bill O’Neal, a young African American man who’s been coerced into infiltrating the Black Panther movement and sabotaging it from the inside out. Unfortunately, this character is at the forefront of this film, despite the events being so heavily centered around Fred Hampton. This film failed to make me sympathize with the…

    Death Note

    ★★★★★

    Probably one of the best cat and mouse detective stories ever? Everything is so intense and over-the-top I loved every second of it. Yes, even the parts that other people don't like, while the last part is obviously not as good as the first, it was still an interesting and enthralling story to watch unfold.

    This series has so many iconic moments that remain some of the best within the medium of anime. Such great twists and turns throughout that…

    ★★★★

    First of all, can I say how insanely good the cinematography is? It really felt like Sam Raimi just grabbed the camera and went crazy, and I loved every second of it.

    The gore effects are also just insane and reminded me a lot of David Lynch's use of gore in Eraserhead (1977) and his earlier short film The Grandmother (1970). The use of stop-motion during the end showing off the disintegration effects was so amazing to watch.

    All I gotta say is, I'm glad my ticket was free.

    Idk what I'm missing from this film, but I thought it was so boring and unengaging, not to mention it doesn't even explore the societal, economic, and systematic failure of capitalism that forces people to adopt these lifestyles and somehow get Stockholm syndrome from this. THE MAIN CHARACTER LITERALLY WORKED FOR AMAZON, you know, the company that doesn't let customers go to the bathroom outside of their 10-minute mandatory…

    ★★★★★

    I can't even review this; what is there to say?

    Probably the most hollow I've felt at the end of a series. This isn't satisfying to watch. It hurt and left me with thousands more questions than answers. So despite my 5-star rating, I feel very mixed about how this ended. It does not feel like a conclusion to a series. And I can understand why Lynch took this approach with the story, even if I wanted it to be…
