    Belfast

    ★★★★

    Ya, this is my shit. I adored Belfast.

    I find myself drawing a lot of parallels with this film - the Irish Brady Bunch dynamic of My Left Foot, the coming-of-age-in-a-war-zone story of Jojo Rabbit, or the strained working class relationship we see in something like Minari. This is because nothing in Belfast is entirely new, but what makes it feel so special is Kenneth Branagh’s heart and clear personal connection to what he’s putting on the screen. It’s a…

    Eternals

    ★★½

    I accidentally made this video more about Marvel and Eternals as a whole oops but it’s there! And it’s way too long but I guess that’s fitting

    TL;DW: I think Eternals suffers from similar issues to Wonder Woman 1984 in that it’s too long, convoluted, and attempts to juggle more than it needs to. It absolutely has its moments with the characters/action, but the writing is poor, there are too many characters, and the visuals are good but not good enough to justify its $200 million budget.

    Now pls no one talk to me about this movie ever again

    Macbeth

    ★★★

    Watched so I have a point of reference for my Tragedy of Macbeth video - and my impression of this adaptation was absolutely influenced by having watched Tragedy only a day before. For a tale so transcendent, I thought Justin Kurzel’s effort to ground it in reality stripped it of the magic that was so lovingly embraced by Joel Coen.

    In other words, I am all for this brutal and apocalyptic style, I actually think it’s fucking awesome, but prefer it…

    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    ★★★★

    FCC movie of the week!

    Fellas, imagine this: you have a post nut clarity moment about the Russians contaminating your precious bodily fluids - do you walk it off or start a nuclear holocaust? 

    While Dr. Strangelove always had me intrigued, it became clear around the 30 minute mark that this was a full blown black satire that employed both genius spoof comedy (that surely influenced things such as Airplane!, which I love dearly) and clever mockery of U.S. and Soviet…

    ★★★★½

    i am fucking speechless. I’m gonna probably delete this and come back to do a real review lol but I just wanted to broadcast to this godforsaken app that this movie is phenomenal, crying and shaking when i came out and this time that’s not a joke. It will not resonate to that degree with everyone obv but this is a masterful ass film and it is IMPORTANT and Jodie Comer is BRILLIANT and everyone sucks for not believing women. Go see it

    I could go into heavy detail. And I will! I will go into heavy detail!!!

    Not right now, but man… I can’t believe we are finally getting this film. I’ll save my rewatch log for a video, but biggest takeaway: Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman. Jesus Christ. How did PTA make me literally feel the feelings of being in love in the summer. I cried twice in the movie when nothing was happening. Just because the whole thing is so beautiful. Damn funny too!

    Time to blast Life on Mars? and romanticize these rat infested New York streets
