    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★★

    This picture perfect movie was amazing and painful. The aspect ratio added to its beauty and how they used that space with framing was haunting. This film was silent but so loud with each shot showcasing grief and the fragility of time. Due to this silence each shot, sound and song became evermore impactful and spoke volumes over any word said. The editing and camera movements showcased time progression in a unique way. So many brilliant scenes that will stick…

    I watched this cause a cute guy told me to and now I I’m in love with his taste of films. This was an enjoyable fast watch that made me reflect. Oliver Wood was a cutie who was relatable and told the story well.  The film had its funny moments but overall is about the heart and it’s feelings of love and pain which is told beautifully (crush).
    The whole film felt like it was an artwork. The narration a…

    I see why this is is everyone’s favourite film and I’m on board. It’s 4am and all I can think about is how much of a little bitch JT is and the glock line #bob. 
    David Fincher just thinks of a movie and it turns out perfectly as he imagined. Every shot with purpose- the push onto JT face telling you everything of what he intends for Wardo. The CGI that is done so well such as the breaths outside the…

  • Jurassic Park

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★★

    A classic and perfect film. Spielberg is the best director with so many iconic movies.
    Nothing can beat the real dinosaurs and I loved the merge of CG with them in some parts. Spielberg loves to keep it realistic and I wish more movies followed suit.  So many iconic scenes and actors that have influence still today. How can you not love this film.

  • Sorry to Bother You

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★★

    This film was everything. Satisfying with every shot, showcasing skill with the lighting or blocking. It was written well that would keep me laughing. L.Stanfield did amazing and is beautiful, get that man an Oscar. The outfits were amazing and I would love to wear every pair of those earrings.
    This film didn’t only make me laugh but I enjoyed the anti-capitalist statement it makes. The parallels to history of slavery, the examination of politics, media and class are all…

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

    Holy fucking shit why haven’t I seen this sooner.
    I need to look into this movie and watch it 10 more times.
    I can’t believe how this was filmed, Like a fucking murder mystery, so insane. I loved how it was shot; the overexposure, the awkward zoom in and outs and the focus. It was jarring but worked well. I liked the lighting hinting at where they are originally from (red/blue/green). The comet shots looked amazing and I think practical…

  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    ★★★★★

    Best Harry Potter movie. Wish Alfonso directed every one as he adds his own magic to it

  • Swiss Army Man

    Swiss Army Man

    ★★★★★

    The soundtrack alone is 5 stars. A movie that makes me cry over farts is an instant favourite.  How is this movie so beautiful and makes every fart and boner just as beautiful. 

    But maybe everyone’s a little bit. Maybe were all just dying sacks of shit, and maybe all it’ll take is one person to just be okay with that, and then the whole world will be dancing and singing and farting, and everyone will feel a little bit less alone.”

  • 1917

    1917

    ★★★★★

    The cinematography and the camera work especially was amazing and really made some beautiful shots in such a dreadful situation. The continuous one shot allowed you to feel apart of the action, allowing a unique experience. The score was bold yet quiet and built up the tension well when needed. The quieter moments without action allowed us, the viewer, to not only take in the scenery but be observant and on watch for anything that may come. This film felt like a realistic take on war

  • Before Sunset

    Before Sunset

    ★★★★★

    Of what could be, this idea portrayed in this film is realistic yet so beautiful it feels untouchable. The chemistry is amazing and so much said with a small movement of an almost touch and a look of lust. The ending was amazing, knowing he missed his flight whilst she danced to Nina Simone.
    Perfect

  • Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise

    ★★★★★

    I loved the simpler look at love, nothing too silly or flashy. a simple meeting with a simple story to follow. I enjoyed how the filmed captured love and life with all its complexities. The way he impresses her whilst showcasing his insecurities and the compassion! The way he looks at her just AH. The record player scene was my favourite.
