    ★★★★

    tim burton once again shows such an incredibly deep understanding of the gothic aesthetic in what is arguably his best film. the animation is gorgeous, with interesting character models and rich, vibrant use of colors and contrast. the story itself is pretty simple as one would expect from an 80 minute children's film, but still very heartfelt with some beautiful cinematic moments. i forgot this was a musical, which comes as no surprise as the songs are all quite bland tbh. the score and general soundscape of the film is great though

  • Titane

    Titane

    ★★★★

    julia ducournau is a genius

    titane is absolutely her show, with her utilizing every trick on her lil cinematic utility belt to create a completely overwhelming experience. the end result is an audacious, technically brilliant film. the editing, cinematography, sound, and especially the score all uphold ducournau's loud vision. if raw was ducournau knocking on the door of film notoriety titane is her fucking battering ram. she's not going away for a while yall.

    i was able to notice its flaws a bit more than when i first watched it way back when, but it's still a masterpiece. simmons is brilliant, teller is great, chazelle executes damn near perfectly, and most of all tom cross has created the gold standard for editing in music based films and, tbh, films in general. can't emphasize enough how much his work elevates the film, by far the most deserved oscar tech win of the last 20 years.
    EDIT: almost forgot to mention that ending, holy FUCK chazelle knows how to go out on a bang, shit's borderline euphoric(while still being so so heartbreaking)

    ★★★★★

    for all its cinematic grandure, la la land simply doesn't match the raw emotion and skill on display in whiplash. simple but utterly thrilling, everything chazelle does here is damn near perfect, from the characters to the visuals to the best finale of the last decade. GOAT shit fr
