let us wait around together forever and die
this was something.
after i took a peek into refn’s mind way back at seventeen with his 2011’s Drive. I’ve been in love with his style, his enigmatic way of telling a story with visuals & long emotive takes. i credit him for opening my eyes more in world where I thought I knew everything. cinema can be simple but with a unique presence like refn it shows you don’t know shit about…
fuckin hippie motherfuckers
yes yes i know what you’re thinking, why did I give this five stars? and wade you’re giving into the hype of it haha but I think in my own terms it’s vintage soul means a lot to me and the work of tarantino that’s led to this. out of all his films Resevoir Dogs has always been his best in my eyes. I felt for a film on that scale was amassed in his true creativity instincts,…
I’ve seen this film in the span of my life and i really never had a really good hold of my conscious opinion of it. I know I really liked it but I really couldn’t say why or how it has become beloved over the years before. Here recently I just really craved to see it again.
im not a big fan of kubrick per se but i do appreciate his films. All are flourishing in window dressing visuals…
i’d buy that for a dollar
i don’t have much fond memories with my dad. rightfully so, he was the lowest that they come. but i remember when i was like three he was laying on the sofa and i was so happy to see him i woddled all the way to him. he picked me up and laid me next to him. we ate funyuns throughout the film. the brutalization of alex was so scary to watch but being…
note to self: don’t go to sweden horny
after digesting a second watch im sure I’ve come up with a verdict. ari aster has an eye for aesthetics no doubt but im not going out on a wimb to say he’s a horror mastermind.
the film needlessly ripped so much from the original Wicker Man and a tad from Texas Chainsaw Massacre. My friend and four others were at this screening, they laughed their ass off at the last 30mins.…
you have come to journey’s end
(extended cut: 263mins)
srry it took a day to review this one...but it’s my birthday. I will be heading out with my twin sis to celebrate it in a bit.
but ive never felt so either eviscerated or had my emotions whirlwind around me like the way this trilogy has done it. wait...scratch that ive been in love before haha. no long paragraphs for this. just as a kid it really changed me and made me…
the fate of middle-earth will be decided
(extended cut: 235 mins)
now amidst this beloved trilogy this one is probably the closest to my heart. as it was the only dvd out of the three I’ve owned for quite some time growing up. it’s most likely my fav too as the journey is still ongoing as we witness the perils our lush characters have to face.
it would be another year or so that I finally followed up the Fellowship with…
“We’re going to stand until it’s right to sit.”
Midsommar is Ari Aster’s expression of madness.
Before the title of the film is even shown, the opening is already ultra-traumatic. It taunts the audience: we’ve already experienced so much that to think we are about to be disturbed some more is almost unfathomable. The first act caters to its low-budget: claustrophobic rooms with a minimal amount of characters. I thought they’d NEVER get to Sweden, as the set-up took forever.…
one ring to rule them all
(extended cut: 228 mins)
i was five when i saw a first look of the world of middle-earth as a tv special on syfy explaining the making of the film a whole year before it released. I remembered being slightly confused but very interested, it only went in-depth on the shire with scenes of frodo and gandalf. at that age any fantasy was magical to me and with that luscious howard shore score i…
im your friendly neighborhood spider-man
ok so essentially I was done with marvel films after Endgame cause obviously there was nothing much that can top that, it was the movie of the century! my family connection with the movies and the slow fizzle of the comic book movies scene make everything after irreverent. But apparently this the last film in phase three??? More on that in a sec. I didn’t want to see this, nothing personal but I in mind was…
friends to the end
ugh...um...so...goddamn it I don’t know how to start this. Okay first off this has been bugging me for awhile and it’s the creep factor on certain characters horror is getting wrong nowadays, the design of Chucky is too damn creepy that in the real world no kid would ever want this version of that doll. A tip for filmmakers/storytellers you want your villain or entity to be enticing, welcoming and don’t oppose a threat. That’s why…
