    I'm surprised that while this is my favorite horror film of all time, I haven't written down any of my thoughts for it. Given that today is Halloween there doesn't seem to be a better time to do so than now.

    I'm happy that this film has gained a 2nd life through becoming a cult classic recently. I love how this film that wasn't appreciated on its initial release has now gone on and became so many people's favorites. I…

    “You can go wherever you want. Yes you can. However, you’ll find nothing different.” 

    Hu Bo was 29 when we tragically lost him to suicide. He died shortly after the film finished post production. Meaning he never got see his first and final masterwork. Knowing this before going into this film creates this constant sense of melancholy. The film is filled with so much everyday sadness, anger, and death. This film feels as if it’s his Suicide note. This is…

    Wes Anderson at his most indulgent (and funniest)  yet. But in the best way possible because the narrative itself is about artist being self indulgent just for the sake of it. There’s a scene where someone ask Jeffery Wright’s character why he writes about food, to which he replies, “never ask a man why”. Anderson makes so many creative film making decisions that do enhance the scene, but other times just for the sake of them, and they all look…

    Didn’t expect this to be so sweet and cute. This film made me cry because of an adorable montage, and left me with a big idiot smile on my face. This is going to be a new comfort film for me. Especially since it’s an American production that has good representation of Mexicans. It avoids harmful stereotypes and is avoid of the yellow tint so prevalent in other Hollywood pictures when they depict Mexico. Eastwood’s brilliant decision to let the…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is without a doubt Tarantino’s most mature and sweetest film yet

    If there is any way I could describe this film by comparing it to another film it would be that this is the anti Death Proof. In a sense they are both different takes on the same character, both Rick Dalton (Played by Leonardo DiCaprio in what possibly could be his career-best) and Stuntman Mike are both relics of an older time in…

    Halloween

    ★★★

    Has a rough first act. But once it finally gets to Michael being set free it does a good job at conveying how threatening Micheal is. Each scene with him attacking someone always shocks you because of how strong and cruel they remind you he is. I also feel that the film should have centered around Laurie much more because her character is so much more interesting and the film really shines when it focuses on her.
