    Annie Hall

    ★★★★½

    This is without a doubt my favorite film ever, and I don't think that's ever going to change. This is my 5th time watching it and I'm still enjoying it as much as I had the 1st time I watched it. Everything about this film is just terrific. The writing, the naturalistic acting, the cinematography, but especially the pacing. 5 minutes passed, I looked at my phone, and it said 40 minutes had passed.

    This isn't the best film I've…

  • These Days

    These Days

    ★★★

    Unfocused, messy, and doesn't really know what it wants to be. You could say that perfectly reflects the state of mind of the subject matters of this film, but I believe it to be incidental (knowing the troubles of this production) rather than intentional.

    It starts off strong with a surprisingly nostalgia-inducing montage of friends hanging out, spitting the shit, and just enjoying being around each other. This eventually, and unfortunately, devolves into random vignettes of the characters just doing…

    ★½

    This film really tries to have its cake and eat it too. Moments that are supposed to be tense and shocking come off as random and flaccid due to the lack of build-up to said events, and the dreary strings that would accompany them come off as annoying rather than stressful. It really feels like they crammed a 2 hour movie into an hour and thirty minutes, which is a shame because this probably could have been decent (at best) with an additional 30 minutes to let the film breathe.

    Oh and the acting wasn't too great overall.

    It finally happened. Godard became what I feared he'd be when I decided to dive into his filmography: Artsy Nothing. This film, like many of Godard's other films up to this point, mainly consists of characters walking around a room repeating the same stuff over and over again. The main difference with this film is how cut, dry, and standard it is.

    With Breathless and A Woman and is A Woman, there was at least a playful energy to those…

    In a better timeline, Big Jim & The Tramp would have been an iconic comedy duo

    That was some well-made nothing.

    ★★

    I could have done anything today. I could have wrote that script I've been meaning to for awhile now. I could have started working out and taking better care of myself. Hell, I could have gone out and met the woman of my dreams for all I know. So how did I spend my day? How did I spend my sweet, precious, valuable time on this oyster of a world I live on? I spent it watching a double feature of Norm of the North.





    Please help me. I have no control over my life anymore.

    There was one actual good joke in it, so it's at least better than The Emoji Movie

    A fever dream of a bad trip of a freeform poetry session on a carousel on a fast ferris wheel where everyone riding is high off a different drug

    I feel nothing for Hiroshima Mon Amour. Nothing.
