📺 WATCHED The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

⭐½

By the end of this movie I didn't care about any of the characters except Nate. Every punchline was either about how awful Andy's work environment was, or about her weight.

📺 WATCHED The Muppets (2011)

⭐⭐⭐½

Honestly, this movie was a best-case scenario for a 2011 Muppet movie. I loved The Muppets as a kid, but even if you've never watched them before you'd probably enjoy this lighthearted movie. Celebrity cameos all over the place, a very goofy plot, and Disney doing their best to be self-aware in the 2010s.

📺 WATCHED Closet Monster (2015)

⭐⭐½

This really wasn't a bad movie! But in the end I didn't really feel like it all came together. A lot of the symbolism felt pretty forced and the supporting characters didn't really keep me interested.

📺 WATCHED This Is Not a Film (2011)

⭐⭐⭐½

It's funny to think this review will sit between the other films on my watchlist; it's unlike anything I've ever watched before. Don't expect distinguished cinematography or audio mixing, but do expect a very raw glimpse through the eyes of a filmmaker who will not give up his craft for anything. The more I think about this film the more it grows on me.

📺 WATCHED The Disaster Artist (2017)

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I watched this movie hoping I'd better understand The Room, and instead just came out more confused. I'll be watching it next!

📺 WATCHED The Godfather (1972)

⭐⭐⭐⭐½

I can see why this is such a well-regarded film, and it was fun to catch references I've heard my whole life. It's not really the type of story that appeals much to me, but i respect how carefully this film told it.

📺 WATCHED Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

⭐⭐⭐⭐

This movie is one of the most unique I've ever seen. It has such a hairy plot and pulls it off so well. Everything about it feels early 2000s to me. There are so many visually amusing scenes.

📺 WATCHED Ford v Ferrari (2019)

⭐⭐½

If you are a Car Guy and know the story of Ken Miles, I can honestly recommend this movie. It made me laugh a few times, the cinematography is tight, and there are so many cuts to pedals gettin STOMPED gears getting SWITCHED cars going VROOM

📺 WATCHED Soul (2020)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I love a movie that takes risks. Pixar developed a character in their classic style, and then killed him! In the first few minutes of the story! What followed was a wildin plot, beautifully animated in New York City!? With Tina Fey voicing the supporting role?! In my eyes, these were big risks, and Soul brought them together as a beautifully human animation.

📺 WATCHED A Serious Man (2009)

⭐⭐⭐⭐

This didn't feel as polished as other Coen Brothers films, but that's a very high bar. I do like the premise that nothing goes right for Larry, right up through the end of the movie.

📺 WATCHED Starlet (2012)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This film takes so many risks. It goes to yard sales, Saturday bingo competitions, and Jane's gigs as an adult film star. There's a chihuahua in nearly every scene. Yet the entire time I felt engaged by a well-paced plot, and the insanity of life through Jane's eyes.

📺 WATCHED Climax (2018)

⭐⭐

Honestly, I didn't love it. I don't feel like I connected with these humans before they turned inhuman. Maybe if I were to watch it again I would pick up on more of the intricacies of these relationships, but doing so would entail sitting through such a boring intro again...

📺 WATCHED You've Got Mail (1998)

⭐⭐⭐

There's a lot to love about this movie, but neither Tom nor Meg's performances blew me away. For a romantic movie with a hard-to-believe plot I need to at least believe the characters love each other.

I can appreciate the effort National Geographic put into this film, but I didn't come out of it feeling like they fully captured the fair nor any of the individuals they followed. Best part about this movie was being in it for a second 😝
