    The Father

    Starts off slow but then ascends into the film version of Everywhere at the End of Time. The last few scenes in particular struck me.

  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    Really, though - does it get any better than this?

    This is quite possibly the most well-made movie I've ever seen. I mean, even The Muppet Movie has a few technical slip-ups here and there, but Roger Rabbit somehow manages to polish even the tiniest details regarding the implementation of the animated characters. And this is on top of everything else that makes this movie so awesome.

    The Muppet Movie will always be my favorite, but by the standards of the rest of the Muppets' movies, this is the complete package. The songs, the humor and the technicality are all spot-on.

  • Monsters, Inc.

    Monsters, Inc.

    I CANNOT believe this movie is almost 20 years old already since 1) I saw it in the theater twice when I was a kid and 2) its animation and themes still hold up well in 2021. Plus I'm a huge sucker for big guy/little girl friendships so Sully and Boo's plotline really gets to me.

  • I've Heard the Mermaids Singing

    I've Heard the Mermaids Singing

    I got to see this film for free as part of Canadian Film Day, and I must say that without going too much into detail, I've rarely related to a quirky female protagonist more than Polly (except maybe Vanellope).

    Beyond that, it's just a neat, subdued gem of a movie that deserves more recognition. Would love to see Criterion get a hold of this.

  • Godzilla vs. Kong

    Personally I'm not as fond of this one as Skull Island, but it was so refreshing to watch something that's pure FUN after a long, cruel year.

    My favorite parts when I saw it were during a few of the super quiet/introspective moments (especially the ending, without spoiling anything) and I could faintly hear the muffled action movie from the theater right next to the one I was watching this movie in.

    Subdued dramedy, heartwarmingly and heartbreakingly realistic teenage protagonists, intergenerational friendship, John C. Reilly... yeah it's safe to say I was destined to like this one.

    (Also John if you're reading this then can you please adopt me?)

    20th Century Women

    I'm a big sucker for this kind of period piece and this definitely delivered.

    I'll probably never see this but I have to give it SOME score... Fingers crossed that Magnolia gets a Criterion release with this as one of the bonus features!

    It was great to see Old Dolio go through some much-needed growth over the course of the story. Miranda July is so underrated, though as of this writing I still haven't seen Me and You and Everyone We Know (planning to track down the Criterion DVD of it).

    I was initially under the belief that this movie would never be released in Canada, being a Hulu exclusive, but was relieved that it came to Prime later on. Check it out, it's fun and stuff.
