Ahh, I love movies more than anything (okay maybe books are a lil better but that's not the point!)

Below is a list of my favourite movies, the description on what it's about, and the rating.I'll most likely be updating!

1. A Cure For Wellness (2017)

Rated: R


An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem.

((This movie is so amazing! It's long, and you need to pay close attention to things to understand what's going on, and one of my favourite actors Dane DeHaan is in it! TW: R*pe))

2. Big Eyes (2014)

Rated: PG13


A drama about the awakening of painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

((I love movies based on real-life events, particularly the 30s-50s, and this movie fits into both of these descriptions. It's honestly so wonderful and the plot twist is just ahh.))

3. Call Me By Your Name (2017)

Rated: R


In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape.

((Honestly the description is terrible because the movie is so much more than that! It's such a beautiful movie. I wish I could describe it more, but I'm horrible at explaining, please watch!))

4. Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

Rated: R


Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.

5. The Fundamentals Of Caring (2016)

Rated: TV-MA

6. Kill Your Darlings (2013)

Rated: R


In the early 1940s, Allen Ginsberg is an English major at Columbia University, only to learn more than he bargained for. Dissatisfied by the orthodox attitudes of the school, Allen finds himself drawn to iconoclastic colleagues like Lucien Carr, William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Together, this gang would explore bold new literary ideas that would challenge the sensibilities of their time as the future Beat Generation. However, for all their creativity, their very appetites and choices lead to more serious transgressions that would mark their lives forever.

((OKAY! This right here is my favourite movie ever. I am very obsessed with the Beat generation, and this is all about the beginning of it. SO GOOD. This movie is based on a true story AND has Dane Dehaan in it. Ahh it's just so amazing I'm sorry I can't explain it any better but I watch this movie weekly, it's just that great.))

6. Before I Disappear

Rated: Unrated (personally I think R)


A troubled young man and his strait-laced niece embark on a thrilling odyssey through New York City in this heartrending drama based on an Oscar-winning short. As his life hits rock bottom, 20-something Richie decides to end it all, only to have his half-hearted suicide attempt interrupted by an urgent request from his sister to babysit her precocious daughter. So begins a madcap tour of Manhattan after dark, as uncle and niece find unexpected bonds in the unlikeliest of places.

((The development of the main character is ahh so beautiful. Everything just clicks at the end, I loved it. Plus Emmy Rossum and Paul Wesley are in it! TW: heavy self harm))

7. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

When New York is put under siege by Oscorp, it is up to Spider-Man to save the city he swore to protect as well as his loved ones.

8. Life (2015)

Rated: R


A snapshot in time-the film chronicles the story behind the 1955 LIFE magazine photo thread by Dennis Stock of then-rising star, James Dean, and gives us an inside look at some of Hollywood's most iconic images and into the life of a gifted, but troubled man.

((Hey look! More Dane Dehaan! This is also based on true events, and I haven't watched it in a while but writing about it now is making me really want to! It was a great movie about James Dean. It's soo underrated))

Rated: PG13

10. The Edge Of 17 (2016)

Rated: R


Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine, who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian starts dating her best friend Krista. All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

((I wasn't sure about this movie at first. I mean it's the typical teen self depriving movie, but it was more than I expected! The edge of 17 was a great movie.))

11. The Imitation Game (2014)

Rated: PG13


Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.

((This was such a great movie??? Again, another history/biography movie but ahh this movie destroyed me. I know not everyone knows who Alan Turing is, but they really should, he is such an underappreciated inventor! So good.))

12. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (2012)

Rated: PG13


this is about 15-year-old Charlie, an endearing and naive outsider, coping with first love, the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs. The introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors, Sam and Patrick, who welcome him to the real world.

((I watched this movie a while ago and really didn't like it, but just recently I've watched it again and I fell in love. TW: mentions of suicide, sexual assault and some non-graphic self harm.))
