  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★★

    “What brung such a one as ye to this damned rock?”

    The Lighthouse (2019) is a very strange and filthy film.

    For starters, I love the premise.

    Two lighthouse keepers try to maintain their sanity as they are left alone on a remote and mysterious island shrouded in a dark mist.

    It’s vague, chilling and leaves room for so much but has in place very particular restrictions on how the story can function.

    And I think The Lighthouse does a…

    Roma

    ★★★★★

    “We are alone. No matter what they tell you, we women are always alone.”

    Roma is one of my favorite movies of all time. I think many people (myself included) can find part of themselves in this narrative on a deeper level no matter what they are and appreciate it for it’s beauty.

    If a movie gets me to care for the characters, the story feels real to me. I care deeply for Cleo, the protagonist of this film because…

    Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster

    ★★½

    Despite some really bad 2004 cgi and some even worse Scottish accents, Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster has some really clever and fun writing with some great songs.

    One of the better Scooby-Doo movies I’ve watched so far.

    And these movies really need to stop shitting on Daphne for liking fashion like jfc

    Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers

    ★★½

    The animation looks like this movie had a budget of 2 dollars and that normally wouldn’t be an issue for me if the story, writing and other aspects are well done but they were kinda meh.

    Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers is still good chaotic fun but just not worth your time unless you’re a hardcore fan of the franchise or hold nostalgia for it.

    And the implication that Shaggy’s family were slave owners is the most interesting bit of world building in these movies I’ve come across thus far.

    Also the Boo Brothers show up and do literally nothing.

  • Psycho

    Psycho

    ★★

    An almost shot-for-shot remake that ends up feeling like nothing more than a cheap imitation.

    Psycho (1960) is largely considered one of the best movies ever made. One that didn’t really need a remake.

    So one must ask, why? Why does this exist? But why does anything exist? Does anything really need a reason to exist?

    I don’t think it’s right to be mad at a film for existing just because it attempts to remake what is essentially a perfect…
