    This movie was a whole ass mess, it’s about a girl played by Larson who got kicked out of school, moves in with her parents, and gets a dull temp job and a “salesman” played by Samuel L Jackson offers her a unicorn but will only give it to her if she does certain things, like build it a stable etc. I guess it was supposed to be thematically about things we leave behind when we grow up and what it truly means to be an “adult,” but it was so tonally imbalanced that I didn’t know what to make of the movie overall

    I kept thinking that there had to be a meaning. The unicorn was a symbol for something, like mental health or idk but I think it’s realy about a unicorn? Anyways, as you said. A mess.

    To be honest, the performances were all solid if not unremarkable and Larson has potential as a director, it was mainly the screenplay that was a mess. There’s a very limited amount of quality in the acting and direction of a movie when the screenplay sucks, like they could have done 1,000,000 different interesting things with the symbol of the unicorn but they ended up doing nothing. Smh

    Under The Silver Lake:

    Weird, confusing, gross and it takes itself far too seriously for the story it wants to tell. Hated it.

    It was fun and all, but overall a very lazy attempt at filmmaking imo.

    I finally watched Destroyer! This was a beautiful, deeply moving, and arguably underrated movie with an outstanding, Oscar-caliber leading performance by Nicole Kidman, one that should have given her Oscar #2. There is so much that I want to say about the movie, but I will keep it short:

    Let’s start with the script: when the movies started, I wasn’t necessarily too fond with it, especially with the way the movie started, but once you know what’s happening in the movie, the beginning is brilliant. Erin Bell is a beautifully written, fascinating character that we don’t get to see enough in film or TV. The film is strangely yet expertly structured if you look at it as a whole; everything comes full circle. Kusama really added something new to a standard noir crime thriller and worked brilliantly with her actors. The score & cinematography are absolute highlights, especially in the absolutely stunning, breathtaking final 10 minutes. The image of Erin walking through the snow with her daughter on her back, with “Ecstasy” (OST) playing in the background gave me goosebumps. The editing was a bit choppy at the beginning, but I really warmed up to it at one point; the glimpses of memory inserted at times reminded me of Big Little Lies. The cast was great, too. Maslany really stands out in the supporting cast.

    In part a crime thriller, in part a character study, this movie is ultimately a tragedy that shows how a decision, or an event, can destroy someone’s entire life. I wish people had given this movie a chance, because it’s powerful.

    My grade: A-

    Last night I watched an older movie (the 70s) that I had not seen since I was a kid….”Soylent Green” starring Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson (in his last role). It was okay….but Robinson was great! I read that he died just 12 days after completing the film.

    Saw Long Shot yesterday. Theron does some great work, but this is 90 minutes of movie padded out to 125 minutes so it feels far too long, especially towards the end, where they could have been much more efficient in reaching the obvious conclusion.

    Bump.

    Bad Times at the El Royale (2018):

    Just watched this on HBO. Directed by Drew Goddard, starring Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, John Hamm, and Chris Hemsworth.

    Um, okay, so this film was totally robbed throughout awards season. I loved everything about it: the music, cinematography, acting, and screenplay, and the criticized time length was put to good use and never wasted. It did seem like as if everyone was trying to outdo everyone else with their acting and it was great. Bridges and Erivo (I’d say Johnson too) were robbed of nominations, and Johnson continues to prove that Fifty Shades was the biggest mistake of her life lol. This just made me more excited for Erivo in Harriet.
