    ENCANTO - 8/10 It had me in both sad and happy tears. The family theme is explored with brilliance and the Columbian culture is respected to a dot, down to the Spanish versions of songs and the fantastic work of Lin Manuel Miranda on the catchy tracks and lyrics. The voice acting was splendid and I loved browsing comments on the songs (mostly on youtube), where such a wide array of people saw varied resonance with varied themes and metaphors. Dos orugitas was so sweet, and Under the Surface felt extremely personal to me.
    There were some plot holes and although they can easily be ignored they kept gnawing at me. All in all, the ending was super satisfying and made me feel Disney love and magic.

    THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS (7/10) - It has issues, and I don't think the sum is as good as the parts, but there's something about this movie that works for me. I was a HUGE fan of the original film, and I think if you go in expecting that, you'll be disappointed. This one tears down the old mythology and then builds up a new, more unusual mode of storytelling in its place. It simultaneously pays respect to and parodies the past, and then says something new of its own. I'm not sure if I like it, but I respect it.



    THE GREEN KNIGHT (9.5/10) - I loved basically everything about this movie. I like the nonliteral storytelling, the mythic tone, the reliance on silence and imagery. I'm not sure the episodic structure works to its favor, but it also fits with the source material, so it's hard to begrudge the filmmakers for that. I also love how each image seems to actually mean something (whereas a lot of movies are big budget videos of people talking).

    James Bond No Time to Die: 6/10

    Saw this with my family a few weeks ago. I don't remember the last movie so there were a few things I was like "what? who?" but yeah, I suppose it's a bond movie so we have to turn off the brain but there were some scenes where I couldn't stop thinking how thick the plot armor is like James doesn't even flinch most scenes where he is being fired upon. So the film is mostly just a spectacle with bright lights.

    BARB AND STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR (5/10) - A fair amount of critics hailed this as a ray of sunshine during a crushing pandemic, but I'm not sure what they were seeing. This is a low-rent Austin Powers knock-off, and I didn't really care for that series when it came out... Wiig and Mumolo are charming, and there are some bits and lines that are genuinely funny, but for the most part this is a misfire, and goes on too long.

    Saturday Night Fever : 6/10

    It's one of those classic movies I've never seen so far (and yet, I love disco music very much), it was not what I expected but turned out the movie is pretty cool, just the story of a random Italian immigrant son who wants to find a reason to live his life and leave the situation he goes through.
    Some things are outdated, quite shocking nowadays but that's a movie to see anyway.

    Yesterday I watched Don't look up. 10/10. Agree with mavie, it is a masterpiece and a perfect reflection of the world today (metaphorically). I've never felt so much dread while watching a movie.

    Don't look up (netflix)
    I'd consider it a masterpiece, right on time and way too realistic.

    Just watched SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME (7/10) - It works very well as a comedy, and there are some fun action sequences. As a drama, it doesn't work that well. And it's way too long, though in the film's defense, it would be hard to cut material without drastically altering the film. They pulled off the multiverse material really well, I just think it's ultimately too much for one movie.

    The family recently watched ENCANTO - Very sweet and charming. It's got some great songs, and I love the bright vibrant look. It's not going to become a classic, but it's enjoyable. A solid 7/10

    This one and i give it a 10 at least. And then i watched the the making of or story about it, which is even more impressing. Besides it's a bit fitness related and that's not the only reason why i think it belongs here.

    Enjoy…

    Bohemian Rhapsody 10/10: How could I not love a movie about a great band with their amazing music? There were inaccuracies, but overall this was a fun, enjoyable movie.

    Niagara 10/10: I tried to watch this several years ago when I first started my classic movie journey and I didn’t get very far. I’m so glad I tried it again. I really enjoyed this move, and I’m a sucker for a twist.

    Black Swan 7/10: I’ve wanted to watch this movie ever since it came out. I was a little disappointed. It’s a good movie, but there’s just so much going on it probably needs to be watched again to fully enjoy it.

    Love Simon 10/10: This was such a cute film! Would definitely rewatch.

    ​​​​​​​Bus Stop 8/10: This was funny. The leading man was a bull in a China shop with really poor manners, which was comically. He’s from Montana, heading to Phoenix, Arizona for a rodeo, and his friend/father figure wants him to meet a gal. Because, of course, there aren’t gals in Montana. He immediately falls in love with Marilyn Monroe’s character and thinks that they are engaged even though he never asked her. He thinks because he wants something, he can just take it. Of course, the whole premise of trying to marry a woman you just met and going so far as kidnapping her because she doesn’t want to get married is disturbing. It gets a pass because it’s a product of the 50s. The other characters countered his actions, with Marilyn telling someone she had been abducted and his friend constantly telling him to give up because she’s made it pretty clear she doesn’t want to go with him. This all culminates in a fight with his friend throwing the first punch (even though he doesn’t finish it because he’s older). He gets beat up, is dreadfully embarrassed, and he has to apologize to everyone. And, of course, Marilyn discovers she actually does love him, so he does end up getting what he wants in the end.

    The Age of Adeline 10/10: This was another good one. A little weird, but good.

    ​​​​​​Cabaret 8/10: Very weird, but also pretty entertaining.

    The Power of the Dog - Netflix 8.5/10

    Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and her son, Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.
    Interesting in one scene the boy discovers some books with nude pictures of vintage bodybuilder Eugene Sandow posing.

    Free Guy : 6/10

    I'm a sucker for Ryan Reynolds, I love his stupid face and Taika Waititi playing an obnoxious guy works on me.
    The movie has good ideas, pretty refreshing movie but a bit forgettable.
