    HOLY SHIT! I’m not into theater or musicals, but this is easily my favorite film of the year. Miranda just crafted something so magical, I had the biggest smile on my face the whole time. Except for the depressing parts which were very effective. I don’t know anything about Larson so I can’t compare the two, but Garfield’s performance was incredible. My favorite of the year so far. The editing is also without a doubt the best of the year.…

    Ummmmm… what the fuck is everyone talking about??? This was amazing. Besides a couple of references I honestly kept forgetting that this was even in the MCU. It feels very independent and very Chloe Zhao. The camera is constantly moving and the film generally looks gorgeous, but what I really loved was how well the action scenes were filmed. Having Ben Davis as the dp is perfect since he has the action movie experience to bring Zhao’s vision to life.…

    ★★★

    Strong 6/10 for this decent but overrated film. Despite the reception and my love of Portrait, I wasn’t expecting much so I’m not too disappointed. It’s a simple story with some impressive cinematography and child performances, but it didn’t do much for me emotionally. I do enjoy the themes though.

  • The Humans

    The Humans

    ★★★★

    Exceeded my expectations. One of the most engaging play adaptations I’ve seen, the way Karam turns his play into a film, his first film, is so well done. His screenplay was great which I expected, but the humor was a nice surprise. Honestly one of the funniest films of the year. The production served its purpose perfectly, and the sound design added so much creepiness to everything. But obviously its the performance that stand out the most. Houdyshell is the mvp, Jenkins is also amazing, and Amy Schumer and Beanie Feldstein are shockingly great. Yeun is great but that was expected.

    Best movie of the year


    Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson put on the best performance of the year in each gender. The entire supporting cast is phenomenal, the kid included. It’s very well shot and edited, the script, direction, all wonderful. Extreme depressing and also funny, and it is all blended together perfectly. I knew this was gonna be the best of the year, so I’m not overwhelmed or anything, it met my extraordinary high expectations and I can’t wait to watch it more.

    I thought I found a copy of this online and turns out it’s 2 hours of the first 10 minutes looped so now I want to die
