  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★

    Manipulative, interesting, and unique in it's execution, I Care a Lot is a dark comedy and commentary on capitalism. The film does a fantastic job showing how far individuals are willing to go for profit in a capitalist system. However, we didn't really get to see the consequence of many actions that took place throughout the film which left me feeling unsatisfied by the ending.

    I Care a Lot has been divisive with a 36% audience score and a 80%…

    ★★★★★

    Ever since I watched Seven Samurai, which was my first Kurosawa film, I fell in love in his work. There's something about the way he creates his films that really resonates with me.

    Sometimes when I sit to watch a movie it can be really difficult to focus. Sometimes I start to feel depressed and anxious, the feeling of melancholy starts to go through my entire body and I'm unable to enjoy myself. I frequently pause movies and I struggle…

    Another Round

    ★★★★

    Another Round was a ton of fun.

    It's really refreshing to see a non-American take on this type of story.

    I also love the realistic, grounded and simplistic cinematography style, it…

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★½

    I'm finally catching up on some of this year's Oscar Nominees and Sound of Metal marked a great start for my journey.

    I won't be addressing many of the controversy's around this film in my review. However, I highly recommend that anyone who reads my review also checks out some reviews from the deaf community on letterboxd. I loved reading everything you all wrote and I thank you all for sharing your experiences with this film. Lots of your words…

    King Kong

    ★★½

    Film nine of my Godzilla vs Kong marathon.
    (Team Kong all the way)

    I have mixed feelings on this one. I want to love this because it's Peter Jackson, but there are so many problems with this movie. You can really see Jacksons passion for the original film, even though it lead to a few awkward references that felt out of place. King Kong also came at a strange time in Jackson's career. It was released between the beloved LOTR…
