    Trainspotting

    ★★★★½

    I hadn't seen this movie since I was a teenager and upon re watching it, I felt huge waves of emotion wash over me several times during this very surreal and raw movie that dives deep into the world of a person struggling with addiction. And as an adult, this hit a little closer to home because as an adult, i have seen friends firsthand go down the same downward spiral as the main characters. With the heroin epidemic growing…

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★★★

    I have been waiting for this patiently for months and it absolutely delivered. I absolutely love Aaron Paul. I had been meaning to re watch Breaking Bad (El Camino put emphasis on the NEED TO) because it`s been years, however watching Jesse Pinkman`s story AFTER that stellar last episode of Breaking Bad, I couldn't help but feel some nostalgia. I think it was a great ending to the saga, and blew my expectations out of the water. It warmed my…

    ★★★½

    I actually really enjoyed this movie. It was quite the thriller. At times, it seemed a little cheesy, but for the most part, it had a lot of realistic aspects and that seems to lack in a lot of today's horror/ thriller genre. I found myself sad for the couple in the movie.. as they really just wanted a nice getaway (I guess that is the case in many of these type of movies haha) It was pretty gritty and…

    The Fourth Kind

    ★★★½

    I will start off by saying this movie scared the crap out of me when I was younger. After re watching it, I was pretty creeped out still as an adult. While it was less terrifying, I couldn't help but have weird nightmares involving that creepy owl and that crazy Sumerian dead language being spoke by another species. I like the way the film plays it off like those were actual events, real interviews, film, recordings, etc. I honestly didn't…

    Evil Dead

    ★★★★★

    As a fanatic about the cult classic "Evil Dead" (1981) version, I had low expectations for this remake. I just didn`t think it would be able to pay homage to the original, but I was shockingly surprised at how awesome this remake really was. Hands down one of the most gritty, gorey movies I have ever seen, this is easily one of my favorite horror movies. Fede Álvarez was able to capture the creepiness lurking through the woods, the genuine…

    Gerald's Game

    ★★★★★

    I watched this when it first came out in 2017 and while I thought it was a decent adaptation, I don`t think I gave it nearly enough credit. Upon revisiting it, I enjoyed it much more the second time around. Despite it taking place mostly in a bedroom, the premise, dialogue, and story, pan out really nicely. It`s a movie I did not expect to be "creepy" but it did indeed send goosebumps across my entire body at times. I…

  • Get Out

    Get Out

    ★★½

    I enjoyed this movie, although it wasn`t really my style of "Horror" per say. I did find it interesting enough and did like the suspense and utter weirdness of it in general. I have a hard time finding suspenseful/horror type movies I actually like in this day and age (im picky) but I did like this one. It kept my attention the whole time and really didnt hate the ending. Daniel Kaluuyas dramatic performance was definitely a huge key for…

    ★★★★★

    I started out watching this movie unsure if it was a movie i`d actually enjoy. I had never really heard about it or watched any of the trailers for it and my boyfriend kept going on and on about how good it was and how I had to see it. By the end I found myself smiling really big. It was a good story throughout and Miles Tellers performance and drive throughout the film was inspiring. Every scene that hes…

  • mother!

    mother!

    ★★★½

    I was up and down with my feelings on this one. It gave me some "Midsommer" vibes with the crazy fever dream-ish scenes escalating more and more with each moment. I was having a hard time understanding what was going on, and at some point thought to myself "wow, this seems a lot like Christianity!" However at the end, I discussed it with my significant other and that was definitely the euphemism of the movie. I did enjoy it, and…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★★

    Heredity was a great film and I really enjoyed it. I just did not think that anything could top it being dubbed "one of the most fucked up films I have ever seen"

    .. however, Midsommar topped those expectations
    (I like fucked up, ok?)

    As someone who is honestly terrified of cult activity, this move was quite disturbing and I walked out of the theater feeling very distraught and unsettled.

    I would compare the level of uncomfortable to the first…
