    Ever since I first watched Parasite, and on every subsequent rewatch, the story manages to relocate itself into every nook and cranny in my brain, latching on like a parasite. I spent days awake thinking about the ending, about the film and the experience. All the way back in 2020, it recontextualized my understanding of what cinema could do.

    “This is so metaphorical.”

    Harrowing and haunting, few movies have shook me to my core like this. Morality is…

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

    She stands in front of the screen, almost like a manifested destiny. The film shines on her, clear for all to see. He stands and looks her in the eyes; they found each other. Moments like these can only be described as movie magic.

    Popcorn must've been too salty

    Ok here's an actual review:
    No Time to Die gives the first serialized run of Bond's character some proper closure. One of a kind in that sense, a knowledge of finality sort of changes the lens of which this film is under. I think I managed to extend my empathy a bit more, scenes can get tedious but this carries itself with more weight than the…

    “I think if your clients want to sit on my shoulders and call themselves tall, they have the right to give it a try, but there's no requirement that I enjoy sitting here listening to people lie.”

    The snappy dialogue, easily recognizable as the work of Aaron Sorkin, is the most applauded aspect of this film, but every other component also exemplifies the well-oiled machine that is The Social Network. It runs so fast that it nearly drags you…
