    We’re suffocating.” 

    The way I shot this movie straight into my veins when I was 15 and suicidal and so unbelievably angry at the world... Such a bizarre sensation to return to it now, nearly a decade later, older and still angry at the world. 

    Adults are so quick to say teens are over dramatic, that their problems aren’t as serious as they think. But teenage girlhood really is agony incarnate. Sexualized by just about every man you pass, discredited…

    Je, tu, il, elle

    ★★★★½

    You are young and you are beautiful and you’ve just been broken up with. Your apartment feels so much bigger without them in it. Your apartment feels too big without them in it. You move the furniture around, trying to make things take up more space than they should. Trying to produce the feeling of more bodies in the room. But it’s just you. It’s just you and the heartache. The heartache is blinded by grief and doesn’t know you’re…

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★½

    Why is the Force connecting us?” 

    The first twelve minutes of The Last Jedi, centered around Paige Tico and her sacrifice are unbelievably well done. The visuals, the significance of what is happening, the way Veronica Ngo plays that moment… A perfect Star Wars moment if I’ve ever seen one. 

    Overall, I think that’s the appeal of The Last Jedi for me. Not always great, but when the moments are good, god they’re good! 

    I adore the way the moments…

    Luke Skywalker? I thought he was a myth!” 

    I had forgotten just how truly spectacular of a film this is. Not only in its callbacks to the previous installments, but in its introductions as well. The tone it strikes, the work put into developing its characters, the visual scale it embodies, its all incredibly done. I love every beat. Every character’s first appearance. Every plot development. It all fits together so remarkably. Of any new live action Star Wars production,…

    Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

    ★★★★★

    Can’t fully convey in mere words just how much I sobbed, and I need you to understand I mean sobbed, not cried, while watching this. 

    I needed this so badly. I needed to sit with these familiar faces and sets and musical scorings again but in a more adult setting. Especially after two of the most emotionally exhausting years in my lifetime.

    Harry Potter has been the foundation of my life since I was seven? eight? and I’ve gone through…

    Malignant

    ★★

    … I am on my knees begging writers and directors to stop using female body trauma (rape/miscarriages/abuse) as brief plot devices or virtually the only exposition surrounding female characters’ backstories, its mentions featured for maybe ten minutes of screen time, only to then miraculously be completely forgotten or never properly and healthily addressed. Please. I am so tired. 

    Malignant is what I’d call a big ole razzle dazzle of nonsense. It has the visuals of a multi-million dollar funded project,…
