    The Wrestler

    ★★★½

    This > WWE. An interesting depiction of the lengths someone will go to for the thing they’re most passionate about. A great companion piece to Aronofsky’s other film, Black Swan.

    Favourite Character
    Randy “Ram” Robinson

    Favourite Scene
    The final fight. An amazing way to end a film.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    ★★★★★

    I usually don’t rewatch movies. There’s just so many great movies out there that I still haven’t seen that I can’t waste my time rewatching old stuff. But I can always make an exception for the greatest film series of all time. 
    Lord of the Rings > Star Wars don’t @ me

    Favourite Character
    This movie is jam packed with iconic characters. If I had to choose just one I’d have to go with Gandalf.

    Again, so hard to…

    The Conversation

    ★★★½

    Coppola was untouchable in the 70’s. In this decade he made three films that are among the most iconic of all time with the two Godfather movies and Apocalypse Now. The Conversation is often forgotten among his work of the decade which is a shame because if it was made by any other director it would probably be their best work.

  • Before Midnight

    Before Midnight

    ★★★★

    What the hell was that? I started the Before trilogy hoping to see an over romanticized story between two people completely in love. I thought that was the deal? Not to see what love ACTUALLY looks like. This movie caps off the trilogy on a high note! I’m looking forward to the next film in the series, Before 3:45 👏🏼

    It’s always hard to choose between Jesse and Celine. They split this category from the first two films…

    Carrie

    ★★★★

    Amazing! I’ve never seen the remake with Chloe Grace Moretz but I don’t need to to know that it’s a waste of time. Sissy Spacek was made for this role! Such a heart-wrenching depiction of what it’s like to be picked on in high school. I’m very sympathetic towards Carrie. I also would have snapped if my date with Tommy Ross was ruined. My main criticism would be the ultra sexualization of high school girls. Also, how come nobody ever…

    I, Tonya

    ★★★★

    Margot Robbie was robbed of an Oscar just as badly as Harding was robbed of an Olympic medal! 

    Favourite Character
    Tonya. A lot of great characters here, especially Tonya’s mom, but Margot’s performance was really something else.
     
    Favourite Scene
    The scene of Harding standing in front of the mirror just before she goes out on the ice to try and achieve her Olympic dream. This scene alone guaranteed Robbie her Oscar nomination.
