"Petty dark movie about a corrupt anti-hero cop. It was really well-made and I enjoyed it. "
76 58% Promising Young Woman (2020) - Apr 17, 2021
"Very interesting and fresh. On the other hand, it was pretty stylistic and symbolic and therefore more of a sketch than a real story with living breathing characters, so it felt a bit superficial. Someone on reddit said "As a social commentary on misogyny and rape culture, it does work, but I don't know if it worked as a story" and I agree."
64 25% Chicken With Plums (2011) - Apr 15, 2021
"It was not exactly bad, but it falls short of the graphic novel, which worked amazingly."
60 14% Elephant (2003) - Jan 08, 2021
"I didn't really like this movie. It was completely empty, a shell of a movie. The characters are all shallow. The actors are not particularly good, but there is not much for them to portray anyway. The long shots of a person walking and the camera panning around in funny ways are probably impressive because I see people praising them, but they didn't do anything for me. Maybe I would have felt differently if I had seen it back in 2003, but I feel like I gained absolutely nothing from this film. "
68 31% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) - Jan 08, 2021
"It was fun and light-hearted, but not very fresh. The tropes are overplayed for laughs, but they are still followed. It sort of became the sort of movie it was satirizing. "
89 86% In the Mood for Love (2000) - Dec 13, 2020
"I actually feel bad rating this movie after a single viewing. It was a different kind of cinema to what I'm used to, full of subtlety and careful crafting. It really feels like I need to watch it again to fully appreciate this gem. There is a lot of promise there. The score is fantastic. Second viewing: the movie is a pleasure to watch. Scenes are like snapshots in time, playing like a memory, very graceful and precise. The film is very poetic. "
81 73% Loveless (2017) - Dec 13, 2020
"Pretty powerful, similar tones as The Return. The film is about existing in a life without love, a situation that is possibly exacrerbated by modern detachment though screens and devices. Someone wrote online that there is no growth in this movie. And indeed, it's more of a window into their souls than a tale of redemption. There are a lot of emotions in this masterful movie, including sadness, emptiness, desperation, hope, and disappointment. "
68 31% Sleepers (1996) - May 01, 2020
"Standard courtroom drama from the 90s. It was a good one."
72 46% Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) - Apr 07, 2020
"This classic Guy Ritchie is always a fun watch."
74 55% Snatch (2000) - Mar 20, 2020
"I watched it again in 2020, it was not as good as I remembered it. Fun watch, though."
