  • Honeyland



    I knew this was a documentary beforehand but completely forgot while watching. The arrival of the loud nomadic family feels like a legitimate plot twist and makes this feel less genuine, but at the same time more captivating and interesting as it follows almost legitimate plot line. You cant help but feel bad for everyone involved but there is something so embarrasing, and this is probably more enhanced in my experience because I too am from a Balkan country, but…

    For any hip hop connoisseur this is a must watch. Even with a confusing and disconnected plot it manages to get the point across, and the style and colors and the superstar screen presence is so mesmerazing it more than makes up for it. DMX is such a legend, R.I.P. to one of the greatest to ever do it

  • Minari



    David: pranks his grandma to drink his pee
    Grandma: this is some serious gourmet shit

  • Moonlight



    Spoilers ahead, when they announced Mahershala's character had died off screen, I was down feeling some type of way for like the next 45 minutes. Juan really stole the show and killing him off like that really left me wanting something more for the rest of the movie. That was the only part that correlated with me, I thought Chiron's character was kinda lacking. Someone said they can really imagine Juan, Teresa and the rest having a life off screen, but Chiron really felt just like a character in a movie, and that is spot on for me. Really pretty movie tho

  • Skyfall



    Sorry, yes the plot is great and exists for a change(not looking at you casino royale), characters are memorable and with clear motives, the pacing is just perfect, action scenes are thrilling and cinematography is well, lets just say sir roger deakins does not miss, but every time i saw ralph fiennes all I could think was AAAAVADA KEDAVRA

  • Primer



    Hey, this thing aint 77 minutes long, its at least 4 hours long with all the youtube toturials, google articals and rewatches, and I still dont get it! Dont believe me? Put a finger in your ass

  • Trading Places

    Trading Places


    Crazy to think Eddie Murphy peaked in his 2nd ever major movie appearance. All the characters are carboard cutout cliches but who cares, this is a great comedy, christmas movie, capitalism critique, racism critique(?) and insight into stock market (which is done totally wrong). Story is majorly overblown and simplistic, but Eddie Murphy saying "get the fuck out" and Jamie Lee Curtis being naked for absolutely no reason is worth 4 stars alone.

    It was in this one that Dumbledore woke up and chose violence
