    Do the Right Thing

    ★★★★★

    Impulsivity. It’s been the theme of my life for the last two months. If I objectively look over the course of it, my life has done an almost entire 180. And it’s, luckily, been wonderful for me. Including the day before decision to drive 11 hours with three friends to Brooklyn, to see this in New York, and then go to a block party on the street this was filmed, thrown by Spike Lee, the very next day. I had…

  • Hi, Mom!

    Hi, Mom!

    ★★★★★

    I am alive. I want to make movies. I can't do it alone. I don't want to do it alone.

    We have to help each other. We can only help ourselves. We are the ones who need helping. We are the ones who will give help.

    It's not all about movies. It's not all about intellectualizing. It's not all about feeling.

    Everything is. Everything is. Everything is.

    We the people can do something. We can talk. We can engage. We…

    Only a few things to note;

    I first saw this movie when I was 13, and just absolutely loved it. No part of me questioned Jeffrey or his journey, though I knew it wasn't "normal", I didn't see how fucked up it truly was until years later.

    This is one of my Mom's favorite movies, and she took me and a friend to see it in theaters at midnight when I was 13 (that was my third watch already). I…

    The Shape of Water

    ½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Look. I’m gonna try my best to stay calm, and logical, because I don’t want to get into debates, and I don’t want to just shit on something that I know a lot of people love. Everyone has their own opinion, and I respect that. This was simply not for me. In fact this is the fourth Guillermo Del Toro film I’ve seen, and it’s the fourth I haven’t liked (Pan’s Labryinth (2.5), Hellboy (1.5), And Crimson Peak (.5)). There’s…

  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    The most regressive movie I've seen at the time of it's release. Sure, there are worse offenders in history, and I'm sure there will be more, but this just didn't set well with me. The third act really crumpled any positive feelings I had for the film, but even before that I had major issues, and wasn't really with the film at all.

    These reviews, and their comment sections, are able to articulate my feelings a whole lot better than…
