Raw (2016)

If you love gory movies, this is the one for you. Movies and shows can never make me sick but a couple scenes got to me honestly. Besides the obvious shock value of cannibalism and the explicit depictions of it, what really pulled me in was the psychological thriller aspect to it. It's really satisfying to stumble upon a horror movie that actually has a plot and an abstract concept you can struggle with a bit.

Stuck in Love. (2013)

This has been one of my favorite movies for a while so I watch it pretty frequently and honestly, it never disappoints. If you have a passion for writing I think you'll form a connection with this story and the characters easily, but it's pretty hard not to. It's one of those movies that kind of wraps into a nice little present at the end, but in a flawed sense. Nothing really works out perfectly, which is something you tend to find in an annoying majority of "Romantic Comedies" yet it doesn't feel inherently depressing. I cry at least three to four times while watching this with unflinching accuracy.

Knives Out (2019)

If you like a good mystery, this is like that on steroids. The cast is i m m a c u l a t e, I can't imagine anyone else that could pull off the role of Marta more flawlessly than Ana de Armas did. It gave me those quirky Wes Anderson vibes, just the character depth and extravagance displayed was pretty mesmerizing overall. Knives Out juggles intrigue, action, and feud with grace. Also Chris Evans wearing a scarf is something I didn't know I needed in my life until I watched this movie.

Palm Springs (2020)

I grew up watching Lonely Island religiously with my brothers, so naturally I had to see what their newest film brought to the table. And I wasn't disappointed. I do have to say that I think it's best to approach this film with an open mind though, the zany humor that is classic Lonely Island isn't for everyone. Regardless, It was really fucking funny. The concept is not a beaten horse in mainstream film (besides Groundhog Day) and the relationships and dynamics between characters is hilarious but heartfelt.

The Florida Project (2017)

Everyone kept telling me this movie was really depressing so I put off watching it for a while, but you know when you hit a day where you just want to be depressed? Anyways I had one of those days and popped on The Florida Project. I get what they meant but honestly when it boils down to it, this movie is just very uncomfortably real. I think it's about maintaining childlike wonder while navigating through hardship. The cinematography and way it's filmed is what makes the movie. The setting is Orlando, Florida. Novelty and bright colors surround this family yet what they see is struggle. But it also shows the making and breaking of friendship, and the delicate beautiful small moments that make up the human experience. It's amazing and heartbreaking, go watch it.
