Black Mirror: Beyond the Sea (2023)
Fun and interesting, but the build up wasn’t really there for me.
Call Me by Your Name (2017)
Beautiful story, beautifully acted, and beautifully told.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023)
That animation was stellar and bold and unique and I loved every minute of it. The story was… also bold and unique. Everything felt novel and I was engaged the entire time.
Cate is a phenom. This requires a lot of attention to see where things are going and, even then, it’s easy to lose your way.
What a wild ride 🎢
Masterful editing and cinematography. Absolutely mind blowing story. Park’s style for the genre-bouncing cinema was so new to me and I can’t wait to watch his other films.
Bones and All (2022)
Wild ride with lots of emotions and I… liked it? Yeah, I liked it. It felt like a comment on addiction/mental illness/just anyone “different” but I’m not sure any real message landed. At the end of it, I was left with an absurdist love story and that was still alright with me.
Sound of Metal (2019)
Superb performance and clever use of sound.
Next Floor (2008)
Someone please fire that structural engineer.
Eagle vs Shark (2007)
She didn’t fix him, but I think she saved him.
Gave up 2/3 in - a few chuckles but lots of meh
