  • The Strange Thing About the Johnsons

    The Strange Thing About the Johnsons

    ★★½

    the morbid dependency, the electra complex manifesting in the son, and ari aster’s portrayal of harrasment in families swept under the rug is horrifying because it’s truly realistic, it had me appalled and got thinking “what the fuck did ari aster go through in his younger years”

  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★★½

    not that i hated it, i just wish i had just watched the original lion king. not this ugly expressionless, colorless fur fest
