    In Bruges

    ★★★★★

    McDonagh's directorial debut tremendously blends powerful themes of guilt and barbarity with snappily obnoxious and hilarious dialogue that leads into a distressing, beautiful climax. The landscape cinematography truly transports you "In Bruges" and contextualizes the environment, with other camera-work feeling as though a veteran director is at work with his D.P. Wow. Crisp, modern, and beautiful in many scenes, I would have not been able to guess this is a decade old piece.

    The mix of tones works way better…

    Watching some movies that take place in retail jobs

    loved the moments that it played on the horrible monotony of retail. The other parts were weak and very odd. Is a better pitch than it is movie... the comedy never landed for me, and the time-stopping device confused me. That ending was just too much lol

    Also the men in this film r disgusting

    wouldn’t watch again ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Green Book

    ★★★★½

    My heart has been made sweet and warm again, Green Book you don’t deserve the hate you get, the power of changing through one another is more needed than ever and this is just so beautiful and kind ❤️
    I really was able to enjoy the cinematography and editing this time - a restrained, peaceful color palette of blues mixed with browns that creates the feeling of a fuzzy sweater, and the excellent scene transitions that cut on jazz beats make my editing heart proud.
    Can't wait to see Mahershala bring home the gold!
