    ★★★★½

    When I first watched this movie, I felt underwhelmed by it. I guess I was expecting something a lot more big considering what I had been hearing about the film. But since falling in love with Carey Mulligan and listening to her talk about this film, I had thought about the movie more and decided to rewatch it at some point. I decided to do that today.

    Now that I've seen it again, I think I had an incorrect read…

    You Can Count on Me

    ★★★★

    Makes me want to rewatch Manchester by the Sea, especially now that the film is growing on me more and more now. I feel like that film deals with a similar story and in much better, more profound ways than this. Still great though and I'd recommend it.

    And with that... my Best Actress challenge is complete. I have now seen all 105 nominees from 2000-2020. I committed to the challenge and I actually completed it. I feel proud of myself. Very very proud of myself.

    For one last time...

    ★★

    The people who made this movie should forever be ashamed because they made a boring ass movie that somehow landed a Best Picture nomination instead of Almost Famous. Honest to God one of the worst decisions the Academy has ever made.

    Is it just me or do Oscar nominated-movies tend to get more boring as we go backwards in time because that kinda shows to me with the way I'm doing this challenge.

    ★½

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I'm not the target demographic for this, but yikes. Honestly makes me wanna rewatch Step Brothers or something to balance it out lol.

    Anyway I only have one year left to complete of Best Actress nominees of the 21st Century and I'm kinda shocked I (nearly) completed this challenge, I usually never follow through with challenges like this. I'm proud of myself.

    ★★★★★

    Idk if the 5/5 is right, but I'm feeling it atm.

    This film gave me a very ethereal experience that I can't fully explain. I can't tell if it has something to do with the filmmaking or the story or the performances or some variation of those three, but it is a very beautiful movie. Oddly enough, it was similar to when I watched Phantom Thread for the first time. I just felt like I was watching something different and…

  • Unfaithful

    Unfaithful

    ★★½

    Looks like Hollywood's been remaking French movies since before the 2010s 💀💀💀.

    Come on, y'all are artists, get original with these cheating wife/husband and love triangle stories, this shit is getting boring.

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

    Shoutout to the dude behind me who nearly shouted at the end of the movie (you know why if you’ve seen it) who also went “Steven Spielberg!?” when the West Side Story trailer played before this movie. 

    Also stop wasting Ana de Armas and Naomi Harris ffs 🤬🤬🤬

  • Frida

    Frida

    ★★★★

    See, this is an example of what biopics about artists should do: tell the story in the same way that artist would. I mean, these are people who went out of their way to make bold art and thought outside the box, that's what these filmmakers should do as well. This film is very beautifully made and phenomenally crafted from a technical perspective. It actually looks like a Frida Kahlo painting and it gives the film a very unique, distinctive…

    ★★★½

    Maybe I should rewatch it, but I lowkey felt like this movie would've been better if Todd Haynes directed it idk.

    Hmmmmm not really sure if I like this more or less than Oldboy. but this is one hell of a revenge movie, I'll say that.

    A better title for this would be 9 + 10 Grams... like that one <s href+"https://youtu.be/qYzZ6IXaCCM">vine?
