    ★★★★½

    We must protect nature at all costs :( The animation in this film is so beautiful. I hadn’t rewatched this since I was a kid and got so disturbed by the wormy boar. I get why this got a PG-13 rating but loved that it actually got kinda gory.

  • The Shiver of the Vampires

    ★★★★½

    I like the idea of vampires as “great admirers of the night sky.”

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “Why is everyone so ready to believe the worst is over?”

    -I found this to be Dakota Johnson at her most convincing. Her transformation (or ascension?) was believable and fun to watch. I still felt that her performance lacked something. Mia Goth as Sara was the real standout. I couldn’t stop watching her in every scene she was in and found something really captivating about her performance.
    -Thom Yorke’s score was great. I liked how it switched between atonal/ambient sounds…

    ★★★★½

    That bejeweled furby scene was honestly mesmerizing. I can’t stop thinking about this movie! Good Time stuck in my head in a similar way but this just really took things to another level and worked out some of the previous movie’s flaws. I loved Idina Menzel and Lakeith Standfield’s presence and Adam Sandler did such a good job I kept forgetting who I was even watching. This movie made me realize I made my favorite movies of 2019 list way too early
