  • Perfect Blue

    ★★★★½

    Recommended by Elmorales.

    "Perfect Blue" is a terrifying film. Not because there are killer clowns, demonic children, or any of the fantastical aspects we usually associate with the more sinister sides of media. Although it is still a quite fantastic film, the reason for why it is terrifying is because it is incredibly realistic. "Perfect Blue" was crafted by Satoshi Kon, back when the internet was still in its infancy. We Observe as Mima, a pop idol and the protagonist…

    ★★★★★

    “Raging Bull” is a tragic tale about a man whose biggest enemy was himself. A man who could have had everything he ever wanted, but his deep psychological problems such as his crippling insecurities and impotent rage destroyed his life forever. 

    Now I’m not a Catholic but the extremely heavy Catholic imagery throughout the movie make me think that besides the obvious reason of them being there because Jake comes from Italian Catholic roots, they’re there as a kind of…

    Omg this is literally 1984. An interesting little short that has a complex message about power and tyranny, under the guise of a harmless kid’s cartoon, masterfully done.

  • Godzilla vs. Kong

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    ★★½

    “Godzilla vs. Kong” was a great theater experience solely for its grandiose epic action scenes, and considering how I hadn’t gone to a cinema since the summer of last year, I had quite a good experience with friends and whatnot. However, besides the action, this is not a good film. The subplot was terrible, serving only to spill out exposition the audience will forget a moment later, and the final twist was terribly and barely explained and not well executed.…

    Spider-Man 2

    ★★★★

    After my disappointing experience with “Wanda-Vision” I started thinking that super-hero films just were not for me anymore. However, “Spider-Man 2” proved me wrong by being everything a super-hero movie should be with the perfect amount of seriousness, campiness, action, and character moments. Sam Raimi is such a creative legend, and you can feel his love for the character in every frame of this film. My favorite scene is hands down the one where Peter seems happy and relieved with…

    Grave of the Fireflies

    ★★★★

    I was introduced to the world of Studio Ghibli through “My Neighbor Totoro”, and “Spirited Away”. Two light-hearted movies filled with innocence and magic. Through no conscious selection, the Ghibli movies I’ve been watching since have been getting darker and darker in tone. First it was “Princess Mononoke” which was surprisingly dark with depictions of blood, gore, and death, then “The Wind Rises” was the second film to ever make me cry. Now I believe Ghibli has reached its peak…
