I just watched Ready or Not and it was pretty great. I especially loved the end where:

I just watched "Uncut Gems". The movie was not even on my radar, but a few Youtubers I follow that talk about film (and who probably watch more movies per year than I watch in a decade) were singing praises of the movie.

The movie is good. I'm glad I watched it. It's tense and anxiety-inducing for me (which I think was intentional).

But I don't understand the level of praise it seems to be getting. I appreciated it (I can't really say I "enjoyed" it, see my anxiety comment), but it doesn't seem like any kind of big masterpiece for me.

So I definitely recommend it, but I'm thinking it might be overhyped by critics, or perhaps I'm just uncultured swine who doesn't get it. Which seems to be a general audience reaction, as audiences seem to have liked it FAR less than critics did, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

But again - it's a good movie. It's worth watching. Just - probably don't come to it with expectations as high as I did. I can't fathom how this gets called one of the best movies of the year.

Finally saw Joker this weekend...

Wow!

What a total mind-feck! (In a good way!)

Saw it this past Saturday, and yeah you can say that again.
While I haven't quite made up my mind as to how good I find the movie as a whole, Phoenix' performance did blow my mind. What he physically does with the role, the nuances in his expressions, and how he manages to depict his gradual descent into madness, it's quite something to behold. There is a quick shot near the end in which his expression is particularly menacing, and I compare it to the one scene in The Dark Knight in which Ledger was briefly particularly frightening ("Look at me!").

Finally got around to watching "My Neighbor Totoro". Somehow I managed to come to the movie completely blind.

Out of the Studio Ghibli movies I've watched so far, I think I overall preferred "Spirited Away", but I still spent like half an hour crying non-stop when I was watching "Totoro". The film is the perfect blend of warm, cute and sad.
