    The Passion of Joan of Arc

    ★★★★★

    This movie is simply mind blowing, from beginning to end my jaw was dropped watching The Passion of Joan of Arc. I am not usually a fan of silent films, with only a few Chaplin movies being something I like or maybe the stand out classics impressing me conceptually. But, with this movie I wouldn't change a thing, the fact it is a silent movie actually works in its advantage, the score and the power it holds is the real…

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★★

    Going into this re-watch it had been 7 years since I watched Nightcrawler, I went to see the movie in cinemas when it first released, I was 14 years old. Back then I remembered liking the movie a lot and even gave it a 10/10, but for me at this time a 10/10 wasn't too special, I handed out high ratings to anything, from movies that I simply enjoyed to masterpieces that I still would consider favorites to this day.…

    ★★★★★

    Fantastic Mr. Fox is quick and snappy from beginning to end, yet the movie really takes its time with its emotions. I can't believe how powerful the dialogue is with such subtlety and sharpness, it leaves no room for any exposition or anything that feels unnatural.

    Fantastic Mr. Fox really shines in the way it links the existentialism of people to the story of animals, it's crazy how human it all feels in the writing of the characters and how…

    ★★★★★

    I don't tend to rate TV shows or miniseries unless they are really worth mentioning, and out of any show, Cowboy Bebop is most definitely deserving of the highest praise. After watching some of my favorite movies recently like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Blade Runner, I went into this third watch of Cowboy Bebop, already fully aware of it being my all time favorite show and thinking, what if it is also a superior favorite compared…

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    ★★★★★

    Watching the greatest movie ever made for what must be the 20th time is a beautiful thing when the experience can still feel new and fresh. It's impossible to not be blown away by the movie by its end when it ends with what is arguably the most perfect 5 minutes in cinema history, the final duel is my favorite scene of all time, so it only makes sense for The Good, The Bad and The Ugly to also be…

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★★

    Every time I watch In The Mood For Love, I love it more, the repetitive nature of the film is just perfect for a repeat viewing. The visual story telling is better than any other movie I've seen, the detail in the colors, the dresses worn by Maggie Cheung and all the editing work so well to tell the story. The exposition in this movie is almost none existent, the dialogue works more as an exploration of the theme rather…

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

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

    Something that is most often pointed out when it comes to Blade Runner is how slow and boring it is, I personally find the original to be the exact opposite of that, but Blade Runner 2049 seems to wear this claim on its chest, proving to be much longer and drawn out than the original, yet using this to create a unique experience, making the movie stand out more as its own thing. This stand out quality to Blade Runner…

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

    Writing this review, I speak as someone who has seen this movie at least 30 times. Even when I first watched this at 14 years old, I didn't understand what I just saw but I knew I had watched something special. I was always drawn to come back to this movie and every time I watched it, it felt like the first time, I noticed things I had not noticed before, I interpenetrated things differently. Anything that can be considered…

    Over the Garden Wall

    ★★★★★

    Technically a TV show but it's short and way too masterful to not mention. This is so cute and wholesome. It's easy to love. It's perfect in every way. I wouldn't even want to over complicate this review by analyzing the show, it's just simply beautiful to watch and that's all.

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★½

    Yes, I too would like to dedicate my entire life and artistic aspiration to the beauty of Léa Seydoux.

    With that said though, this movie is soooooooooo boring and extremely empty. The only reason I've given a rating this high is because of how great this movie looks.

    This movie is a strong example of Wes Anderson putting aesthetic before heart, character and story.

    ★½

    movies like this are so pretentious in its themes and when mixed with such vulgarity i can't stand them. putting a load of nonsensical and absurd ideas into a narrative doesn't make it some deep and layered art piece simply because you've got some neon in there.

    let's say you were to shoot a film of an apple rotting. of course you can give it meaning and give some bullshit concept of how the movie is a deep and complex…

    ★★★½

    I'm not going to pretend that a 7 hours and 20 minutes movie is entertaining to watch. It's well made and expresses interesting ideas but for a movie to be such a slow burn in it's development of characters and story, I can only say this movie is just good and didn't impact me in any sort of powerful way.
