still lots of fun the second time around
Pride and Prejudice
mmm dramatic speeches in the rain.
Interesting. I think I would have to rewatch it to appreciate its critically acclaimed qualities. I didn't find Henry Hill terribly interesting. Tommy made me nervous every time he was on screen.
I didn’t know this was based on a true story until after! The drama of it all.
this sure is a christmas movie
Tragedy 😔 also can't believe the quote about being beautiful and doomed is from this movie
I liked the individual parts: the cast (Sofia Boutella! Sterling K. Brown!), mythology, and style. The overall plot was less engaging, and the dialogue was sometimes quite silly. But this is, like, my kind of movie.
This was my second time watching, and it made a lot more sense. I wish there were more rpatz/protagonist story and less misogyny. lmao.
The Lost World
Ok, I barely paid attention to this because I was drawing at the same time. Lots of fucking around and finding out, it seemed. Bb rex!
So stylish and fun. I went into this without watching the trailer or knowing anything about it, which I recommend. I think I liked the mystery of the first one more. The setting felt very timely.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
This was...interesting. I liked Namor and the introduction of the underwater world. So much of the movie was dark to the point I thought there was something wrong with the theatre screen.
Partway through season 1.
Jet Lag: The Game (season 3)
truly impressive manoeuvring
surprisingly good!!! the hype is back
Fun and light-hearted
I watched this in the background while grinding FFXIV
Jet Lag: The Game (season 1)
Wow, a web series! The travel manoeuvring was very impressive and 4d chess moves fun.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero
Really fun! I watched Dragon Ball Z as a kid but otherwise don't really know the lore, but the vibes and music were good. I liked Gamma 1 and 2.
Unfinished. Haven't read the comic; am intrigued.
Currently on: season 2. Finally watching this for the first time!
Wonder Woman 1984
This was...hmm. The plot was incredibly bad and nothing made any sense. But 80s and Chris Pine!
The Gray Man
Action is fun, plot and characters are less interesting; I would like movies to stop putting in torture scenes.
Bend It Like Beckham
Charming and super stylish.
Thor: Love and Thunder
It was…fine. Tonally weird.
Fun, as usual. Still scary!
Death on the Nile
I think I would have enjoyed this more if 1) I wasn't half paying attention the entire time; and 2) I hadn't just finished reading the superior book. I do want to go on a long idyllic cruise now though.
Murder on the Orient Express
I just finished reading the book last night, which I think kept me from fully enjoying this as its own work because I kept comparing the two. The setting was pretty and now I want to go on a long idyllic train ride.
Spy × Family
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Cool graphics; plot felt disjointed.
Barry (Season 3)
TAKE MY BREATH AWAAAAAAY
Fun! I now understand the X-Men references.
I liked how colourful it was! Actions scenes were good. Hit every 'Hollywood movie that takes place in Japan' bingo card item.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Questionable plot and writing. How many times does Magneto have a change of heart??
The villain was not interesting.
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Time travel is fun.
Everything Everywhere All at Once
Very funny, very emotional, very absurd, thinking about it makes me want to cry.
X-Men: First Class
I finally understand the memes!!!
X-Men: The Last Stand
Honestly surprised at all the people that died in this.
Still holds up!
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Hmmm. I liked Wanda and America, but I wasn't a fan of the overall execution and writing.
I liked the introspective character stuff! Less interested in big evil world-ending plot.
The Social Network
SORRY MY PRADA'S AT THE CLEANERS ALONG WITH MY HOODIE AND FUCK YOU FLIP FLOPS
I enjoyed the plot and characters, but like everyone else, I felt this was too long. I wish we saw more Bruce.
WORM TIME. I really enjoyed this and will try and read the books now.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
this is complete nonsense. Vanessa Kirby has incredible hair.
Yet Another Rewatch
Daredevil (Season 2)
I remember not quite liking this season as much as season 1, and upon rewatch I like it even less. I'm not interested in big world-ending plots with mysterious organizations, and I don't enjoy the weird ninja stuff.
Crash Landing On You
I enjoyed this, but there was a scene in the first act that made me feel so viscerally uncomfortable/horrified. Time loops are fun though!
The Bourne Supremacy
Realistic spy stuff! I would enjoy this more if there was less camera shakiness.
The Bourne Identity
I appreciate the more grounded take on super spy shenanigans, as compared to Mission Impossible or Fast & Furious. I could not get behind some of the character decisions.
How do I rate this movie? It's both a 4/4 and a 1/4. Every line of dialogue is overdramatic, both in content and delivery. The skateboarding is incredible.
The Book of Boba Fett
The execution of this was not that great. I had trouble getting attached to characters and their motivations. The Tusken Raiders story in episode 2 was a standout.
I liked the music and visuals. The plot was strangely executed. Overall, good Disney vibes.
Very fun, one of my favourite intros.
The cast is cool, but I wasn't interested in the plot, and I felt there was too much going on to get engaged with the characters.
No Time to Die
The Daniel Craig saga ends. This was okay. I wasn't into the plot but the cinematography was pretty as usual. Paloma was my favourite part of the movie.
Castle in the Sky
Surprisingly full of action. I liked the steampunk setting.
‘How can this movie's stunts possibly top the stunts in #8?’ I naively thought to myself. Anyway, I have finished this whole endeavor and can now enjoy the family memes.
Charlie’s Angels (2019)
Big girlboss energy. This improves upon the original by not being horribly orientalist, but I was still not super into it.
The Fate of the Furious
Absolutely bananas. Zombie cars! A submarine whale! Hacker fights! Protecting Dom with the power of cars!
The ending made me sad. Family!!!
Fast & Furious 6
Thrilled to see Letty return.
Spider-Man: No Way Home
Both very fun and also very emotional. I'm glad I watched the earlier movies, for better context of everything happening.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean
Very bizarre. Things kept happening.
Crime family grows! Everything is bananas and thrilling.
Fast & Furious
Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift
Many things are funny about this movie.
2 Fast 2 Furious
Roman is fun!
The Fast and the Furious
I am finally watching these movies. Cars go fast.
This is very much a product of its time. Femme fatale tropes, weird orientalist scenes, big girl power energy.
An amazing show. I don't know anything about League, but I really enjoyed this. The art and animation are incredible, and the characters are great.
Back to the Future Part III
Yeehaw!!! I liked the western setting and thought this was a fun end to the trilogy.
Back to the Future Part II
The time travel gets so much weirder. The retrofuturistic 2015 is cool. Every time they said the movie title I would [Leo pointing meme].
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Really enjoyed this! I wish Xialing got more time dedicated to her story.
Back to the Future
It's fun! Time travel is fun. The car is cool. The mom subplot is incredibly weird.
What a fun mystery!!! I really enjoyed the setting, the dialogue, and all the fun characters. Daniel Craig's accent threw me off so much when he first spoke, because I had just spent last month watching his James Bond movies.
The Suicide Squad
Ridiculous and very fun.
Cool aesthetics and music. I didn't really follow the plot.
The music makes this very fun. I liked the dramatic story and over-the-top vibes.
Pleased to report that the woman doesn't die. I had trouble following the plot as usual. Lots of explosions. The Day of the Dead intro was beautiful.
Fun and pretty. I thought the villain in this one was more interesting than the previous. The treatment of female characters continues to be bad. My favourite intro so far. Also, giant lizards!
Quantum of Solace
I was not into this and I was especially not into seeing female characters get abused. My expectations for Bond movies are at rock bottom.
Daredevil (Season 1)
Rewatched this with my partner, who hasn't seen it before. I loved Daredevil the first time I watched it and I'm excited to revisit it.
I've never seen any of the Bond movies. The colours were beautiful and reminded me of film. The plot and characters were less interesting to me.
What If…? (Season 1)
Enjoyable and fun. The art is gorgeous and probably my favourite part of the series.
Mamma Mia! The Movie
Silly and wholesome. I watched the sequel to this first a while back, so it's nice to see the whole story now.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time
I don't get Evangelion, which has to do more with me than the series. This movie was visually stunning, though I didn't follow the plot. I wish Rei could be happy and domestic for the whole movie. The fanservice was egregious and distracting.
Star Wars: Visions
Loved this. It's an anthology of short Star Wars-verse stories by different anime studios. Favourite episodes: The Village Bride (beautiful music!), The Ninth Jedi (omg), and Lop and Ocho (gorgeous art/environments).
It's cute and charming. I don't know anything about the Beatles, but it'd probably be enjoyable to Beatles fans. It's easy and light to watch.
The Mandalorian (Season 2)
Still fun! Happy to see Fennec return. Dad vibes are stronger than ever. Seeing more Mandalorians that had different values was neat. Very cool to see Jedi.
The Mandalorian (Season 1)
I'm late to the party, but now I finally understand the memes. The music was good, Mando is fun, I would die for Baby Yoda. The heist episode, which is my favourite genre, was very fun. This is the way.
Charming. As expected, the aesthetics are gorgeous: lovely colour palettes, symmetrical frames, and fun music.
The Amazing Spider-Man
It's fine. I probably would have liked this more if I hadn't just watched the original trilogy, so I found myself very bored during the origin story because all the story beats were familiar.
A lot better than I was expecting, because everyone says this movie is bad. It's fun! Venom the character is fun. The plot was not very interesting. I'm glad Anne and Dan were good characters and there wasn't an annoying love triangle shoved in.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Everything happens so much. I thought having both Sandman and Venom in this made it too crowded, and found a lot of plot points silly. Emo Peter dancing down the street was very funny. Disappointed in the way MJ was written throughout this entire trilogy. Love triangles are tiring.
Spider-Man 2 (2004)
I liked the identity crisis plot. Doc Ock's arms were very cool. I thought the initial fusion machine scene was overdramatic and silly, and then the following hospital scene gave me whiplash because of how violent and horrifying it was (I still have that shot with the nails stuck in my mind…ugh). The romance remains tiresome.
I haven't watched this the whole way through before. It feels very much a product of its time with the weird love story and damsel in distress plot points.
Men In Black – International
I’ve never seen an MIB movie before and didn’t really get what was going on here, but I think it was also…not very good.
Mission Impossible 6 – Fallout
the absolutely bananas action scenes continue. I feel tired just watching Tom Cruise run after the bad guys with his infinite set of lungs. I was mostly excited to see Henry Cavill in this. also, the many NO U twists and 5D chess manoeuvres.
pretty fun, I was more intrigued by the missing mother plot than the viscount one, but apparently there's a sequel planned? so hopefully that will be explored more.
Mission Impossible 5 – Rogue Nation
I didn't like this one as much as the 4th movie, but it was still fun. There were lots of NO U moments and I had no idea what was going to happen. I wish I were cool enough to ride a motorcycle.
Pokemon Detective Pikachu
very dark and joyless. I adore the comic and I think I wouldn't have understood this movie if I hadn't read it before. The musical cues were strange and the way the flashback scene between the Comedian and Silk Spectre was shot felt incredibly uncomfortable and unnecessary. Watchmen was never great with women (idk if a product of its satirization or just the usual men writing women thing, I'm not a scholar) and I just have to look past it to enjoy the thing.
Carole & Tuesday
charming and cute, with wonderful music. I watched this with my friends but we ended up not finishing it.
Mission Impossible 4 – Ghost Protocol
I haven't watched an MI movie before. Some of the tech was silly and the BMW endorsements were amusing, but it was fun and exciting.
Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway
I didn't really get it. But also, I just wanted to see robots fight and that wasn't the focus of this movie.
this is a fun movie. I did some Destiny item management while rewatching it. The plot is confusing, but Catherine Zeta-Jones is beautiful and everyone is having a good time.
Fun, and sets up exciting things for the MCU. Croki is the best.
One of my favourite movies.
I adore Yelena. The plot is…less good.
La La Land
Oof, that epilogue.
John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
I think about Lily James singing Andante Andante every week.
John Wick: Chapter 2
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
