    "I'll always go back to that church, and look at my paintings."

    "One day we'll meet."

    "Read me to sleep."

    Dissecting this movie in any way seems to go against what I believe is its whole point… it's a movie I've generally just let wash over me in the past without really thinking what it's about, just that it really moved me in ways no other movie did, and that's probably the way…

    It's taken me years to get around to seeing this because, despite how interesting it sounded, the synopsis alone was enough to depress the f**k out of me. I'm painfully aware of how long it would take for anyone to notice sometimes were I to suddenly die in my sleep or something - if it can happen to someone as apparently vivacious as Joyce then it's practically just a matter of "when" for someone like me.

    Honestly, I'm not sure…

    Me watching Lawrence of Arabia for 4 hours before this 😐

    Me 5 minutes into this 😭

    This is, as they say, a gem. Watch it here (or if that link ever stops working, hit me up, I got it). I'm not even close to the end posting this. I don't believe I'll have anything else to say.

    (I wish I'd seen this when I was 18-21)

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Someone reminded me how much I love this film today (it doesn't take much really) n I figured I should explain here since it's in my 4 favourites… this is just a copy paste of a review I wrote last year when it came out on blu-ray…

    The Little Mermaid II is honestly turning into one of my favourite movies in a very serious way. There are too many abominable reviews of it out there and I've been meaning to…

    "I don't like the way some people treat you, but you don't really help them out, Dinky."
    "Bye."

    "I'm beyond men."

    "I wanted this. I really did."
    "It's good to want things."

    Like the hyper-feminine Heathers trampling the flowerbed to Que Sera Sera, the way Winona dresses and acts in the first half of this movie - the kinda sorta love interest Thomas Wilson Brown looks more like a girl than she does - had to have got inside me…
