  • Lost Highway

    Lost Highway

    ★★★

    Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I was a bit disappointed with this one but I'm not mad that I watched. I feel like this is more forgettable compared to Lynch's other work

  • A Deadly Adoption

    A Deadly Adoption

    ★★★

    They really did that

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★½

    The only problems I had were the boring main characters and a few plot points that really had no purpose (ex. sister/parents, deformed child that looked like the elephant man). The very beginning of the movie would've been more interesting if it had something to do with the entirety of the film, but it didn't. It didn't do anything for the movie. I dunno maybe I'm missing something, if so let me know!! The deformed kid could have been left…

  • Toy Story 4

    Toy Story 4

    ★★★★

    I wasn't too excited about this beforehand only because 4 sequels is usually overkill, but I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it just as much as the previous Toy Story films. Seeing the progression in the animation over the last 24 years is amazing

  • Antichrist

    Antichrist

    ★★★★

    ya know...... i really was expecting to hate this and be upset for the rest of the day.... but that was not the case. I actually thought this was very well done. This is considered one of the hardest movies to watch, but if you can sit through the Saw movies, you can certainly sit through this one, in terms of graphic violence. Upsetting, of course, but i really don't think it is as bad as people make it out…

  • Ivan's Childhood

    Ivan's Childhood

    ★★★★½

    Masterful work done by one of the greatest. It's hard to believe that this was Tarkovsky's first feature length film. Great stuff

  • Dead Man

    Dead Man

    ★★★½

    Dead Man didn't intrigue me as much as the others, but it is still classic Jarmusch and therefore, i had fun while watching.

  • Fanny & Alexander

    Fanny & Alexander

    ★★★★½

    Just realized i haven't watched a new Bergman film in almost two years. Blasphemy? Probably. 5 hours and 12 minutes later, I've gotta say this was amazing, as expected. Bergman has yet to disappoint.

  • The House That Jack Built

    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★½

    I drank a redb*ll at 10 o'clock at night just to make sure I didn't fall asleep during this. Well worth it. Holy moly this was outrageous

    Now my second completed von trier and most definitely my favorite. I feel like this is going to be hard to beat. Going to be thinking about this one for awhile

  • Fantastic Planet

    Fantastic Planet

    ★★★★

    Incredibly strange 70's animated film that is growing on me by the hour. I wasn't completely impressed upon finishing but now that I've thought about it a little more, it's right up my alley.

  • Stoker

    Stoker

    ★★½

    Extremely meh :/// i was excited for this one too. There was absolutely nothing special about this movie, felt like something I've seen a million times

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★

    Finally!!! I haven't been able to enjoy a superhero movie for awhile only because they haven't been my cup o tea lately, but this was an exception. Great concept with some great animation to go along with it. Very much enjoyed
