    "It was easier when I just imagined you"

    After watching this in the perfect headspace, there was no way this would get less than 4.5. I mean FUCK. I'm mostly at a loss for words and probably should wait to write anything about this, but who cares. I felt every emotion during this movie and loved every fucking second of it. Might be a perfect movie.

    Reconciling with the person you once were is an impossible, mostly fruitless task. The…

    "When a caterpillar sees the end, the world sees a butterfly."

    (Yes, I watched this twice in a four hour span)

    One of the core parts of this movie is the idea that all you need to be human is the ability to love. It's a sentiment I really appreciate, because I think the expression of love has always been the crux of humanhood. After Yang plays with this idea of having three seconds every day you can remember, one…

    Pure, unbridled spectacle. The CGI is so creative and well done, it's a masterpiece of special effects more than anything else. The character designs and creature designs are insane. No clue how they got the effects on those hammerhead rhino things so damn good.

    Sure, people have been complaining for years about this being a white savior story, which it is, but it is also very respectful of the culture and is incredibly anti-colonialism, in a very sincere manner. The characters could probably use a little work, but Neytiri, Jake and Grace are all pretty fleshed out, even if Jake's whole character is a little spotty.

    ★★★★½

    Starts off as a family drama, a very good one with interesting interconnected characters, but eventually turns into some different, another incredible look at the lives around us and the relationships we hold. Loved it, obviously, Field is a wizard here, always knowing the perfect line or perfect shot to crush me. As much as I think Spacek is the standout, everyone here is fantastic.

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★½

    Everyone involved wanted this so badly to be a psychological thriller, when it really should have been a comedy. Why cast so many comedy actors and not use them properly??? But down to the big twist that probably could have been more interesting in a better movie, the movies treats everything so damn seriously. Mixing in a little screwball comedy or early sitcom stylings could have made this a much better and more satirical angle.

    I thought it was a…

    Maybe top 5 documentary ever??? Completely transformed me into a Senna fan even though I barely heard of the guy outside of hearing his name on a few F1 races I've watched (Go Alpha Tauri!). But this documentary has such great footage, a director who loves both filmmaking and his subject, and such enthusiasm for the sport that the movie becomes a breeze. It focuses quite a bit on his rivalry with Prost, and while most documentaries would unapologetically favor…
