    the jingle ball rock scene has more cultural impact than a christmas carol, miracle on 34th street and all 57 grinch films combined change my mind

    "Quid Pro Quo, Doctor" as Foster and Hopkins won both the Academy Awards for Acting, might be the greatest real-life come to fruition ever.

    ★★★★★

  • Kill Bill: Vol. 2

    Kill Bill: Vol. 2

    ★★★★★

    I think why I love this film so much and even better than the terrific first part is because you see a bloody revenge story turn into a twisted noir love story.

    This is fucking cinema.

  • Toy Story 3

    Toy Story 3

    ★★★★★

    Most of the time there isn't a reason for remakes or sequels, but man - when you actually add relevant and thought provoking characters to the mix, it's a recipe for perfection. And what Pixar did with Barbie and Ken and Lottso's gang is incredible. Characters that actually mean something and belong in the story for *the* story and not for show is incredible. The story, the heart, and the way you feel for these *inanimate* characters is just how genius the film is.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    The best action film of the decade. Miller further proving he's the mastermind behind all things good.

  • Black Swan

    Black Swan

    ★★★★★

    I would like to be Portman's character in real life trying to get in the mind of Darren Aronofsky's genius. I mean, wow. Portman gives the best performance of her career. Nothing short of a perfect, thrilling, horror film.

  • Lady Bird

    Lady Bird

    ★★★★★

    Gerwig's directorial debut is nothing short of fantastic. And with Ronan and Metcalf's duo performance, I think every parent and child see theirselves in both of them.

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    It's nothing short of a fantastic achievement by Bong Joon Ho, who creates the charming yet heartbreaking story of the cruel reality of classism across the globe.

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★★

    When a fantastic script comes along, everything fits into place. It's the heart of the screenplay that brings the spectacular performances by Johansson and Driver, and with its state-of-the-art editing, it creates a film of a generation.
