    ★½

    Millennial love can be shallow but this is goes to another level, maybe to one where mediocrity becomes hilarious unintentionally.

  • The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    ★½

    I wanted to love this film but, unfortunately, it's quite bad. Gilliam loves Don Quijote and its most memorable episodes, but his tribute is a bad mock to Cervantes' legacy. If the result was gonna be this (especially that disastrous ending), he should've just made a page-to-screen adaptation; Pryce and Driver's talent was unfairly wasted.

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★½

    Bird Box without dialogues. Still a shitty movie.

  • Girl, Interrupted

    Girl, Interrupted

    ★½

    The movie where Angelina Jolie won an Oscar for being Angelina Jolie.

  • Lady J

    ★½

    "So, yeah, I'm gonna find a gorgeous and heartfelt wife for my ex-boyfriend. She's a clean, repented whore that's gonna be loyal and caring until his death... but she's a whore! That way I'm gonna own that motherfucker: humiliating him by helping him find true love. Madame de la Pommeraye, you're a genius!".

    I can't believe Diderot could be capable of writing such a turd.
