Favorite Movies

Midsommar Poster
Midsomar was one of my favorite films I've seen in the last year. I thought the story line was incredibly unique and the cinematography was impressive. I thought it definitely deserved a nomination at the Oscars this year.

This film was nominated for an six academy awards, even being nominated for Best Picture. Though it did not win, I completely thought this film deserved to win Best Picture because the acting is incredible, and the themes in this film are timely and address the issues of rascism in a hardhitting yet elegant way.

What We Do in the Shadows Poster
My best friend from high school showed me this film a few years ago, and I was blown away by how funny it is. The director and star of the film, Taika Waititi is so funny and is so creative.

IT was my favorite horror movie for a long time. I thought they adapted the book really nicely and also tied up some loose ends from the book in the sequal, which is also really good. This movie actually scared me, and considering how frequently I watch horror movies, that was a feat. The cinematography was really cool, and overall this was just a really well thought out horror film.

The Dark Knight Poster
I only recently watched the Dark Knight Trilogy, and this film was by far my favorite of the three. As far as superhero films go, this is the film that started the craze and really made people take superhero films seriously. The actors are incredible, and the storyline is just the right amount of scary realism and comic book fantasy.

I thought Knives Out had a lot of clever subverions of the classic whodunit crime genre. It did some unique things with the plot and the main character. It kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me laughing.

Django Unchained Poster
Django Unchained was such a satisfying movie because it gave you such a great protagonist to root for. The dialogue was so believeable, and it feels like this could have actually taken place. The ending was extremely fulfilling as well.

I thought Moonlight was a story that needed to be told but hadn't been told before in a major motion picture. It was raw and emotional. The colors, dialouge, and production were so well done that it really hit home. The actors were incredible. It's a sad but necessary watch, and definitely deserved its Oscar.
