    my favorite movie genre is Christopher Plummer and his disfunctional on screen family

    Black Panther for people who think that they can't sing (and actually can't)

    not perfect by any means, but still entirety capable of wringing your heart out like a sponge

  • Romeo + Juliet

    Romeo + Juliet

    ★½

    Basically just Luhrmann doing the same thing he did to The Great Gatsby. Juxtaposing classic works of art with modern art in an attempt to spew relevance, but giving not enough care or attention to the story itself. Radiohead was a nice touch, but how am I supposed to understand half of what's going on? Am I the only one who has trouble following everything? *Mugatu voice* I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

  • Mission: Impossible III

    Mission: Impossible III

    ★★

    Mission Impossible 3 is a 2006 action movie directed by JJ Abrams. This JJ Abrams movie, directed by JJ Abrams, was directed by JJ Abrams. I'd recommend MI3 to anyone who wants to watch a movie directed by JJ Abrams.

  • Mission: Impossible II

    Mission: Impossible II

    ★½

    laughably ridiculous, albeit quintessential early 2000's fluff. characters make choices for the sole purpose of advancing plot. cars explode when they shouldn't. Anthony Hopkins appears for a few combined minutes and I'm still wondering what that was about? the biggest tragedy, however, might just be Tom Cruise's hair, which is almost as long as the runtime itself. you're a weirdo if you found this movie interesting.

    ha imagine making an entire movie about drums they aren't even a real instrument

    Hey, tunnel scene! What's a 5 star action sequence such as yourself doing in a 3 star movie like this?

  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    ★★★★

    Ben Stiller in his element. Lackluster narrative? Awkward writing? Oh please, this is coming from the same person who directed Zoolander and The Cable Guy. He could've added whatever he wanted to make his feature commercially, erm, interesting. Yeah. But that wasn't the point. In fact, he practically screams the point in your face.. "Look at how simple living can be! Look at what it's like to see behind walls! Draw closer! To find each other and to feel!"

    Even…

    ★★★★

    probably the biggest (and least assertive) emotional sucker punch Wes Anderson has produced. melencholy as an art form. the first half was a little rough for me and I'm giving the whole thing 4 stars for now, but I also bought this on my MacBook knowing that I'm absolutely going to dissect this frame by frame
