Last year I gave up about halfway through with this list... Let's see in the new year if I can keep up with it better!


[Jan 03] Perempuan Tanah Jahanam "Impetigore" (2019) ★★★★☆
I haven't watched any Indonesian horror in a while, but now I feel like I need to watch more stuff by Joko Anwar! Tara Basro was great as the lead, but I actually preferred Marissa Anita and Asmara Abigail in their roles better!

[Jan 13] The Invisible Man (2020) ★★★★☆
I wasn't expecting to like this movie as much as I did. I don't like Elizabeth Moss, or figure I don't because she's a Scientologist (I literally just now learned that she played Torch in Girl Interrupted!!!). But damn, this movie was good!

[Jan 14] Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) ★★★★☆
I am an Avengers hater, but I've always loved the Guardians movies. No other Avengers movie could emulate the humor and heart that James Gunn puts into his stories. I laughed, I cried, what a damn good movie!

Raw (2016) ★★☆☆☆
I... really didn't like this movie at all. I know that it's supposed to be pretty popular and people compare it to Ginger Snaps, but it wasn't really my thing. I thought it was too many crazy college antics (which was just annoying) and not enough eating people.

Troop Beverly Hills (1989) ★★★★☆
I heard my boss talking about this movie so I figured I'd check it out. I really did not know that Jenny Lewis (from Rilo Kiley) was a child actor in the 80s! And Carla Gugino was in this too, how cute!!

Great Outdoors (1988) ★★☆☆☆
It's very rare that I finish up a movie and I'm confused by what the plot was even trying to tell me / portray. I suppose this was just a story about some people staying in a cabin in the woods and it's supposed to be funny... But I didn't like it ( ._. )""

[•REC] (2007) ★★★★☆
I haven't watched this movie in years, and I remember really liking it when I watched it (probably not long after it came out). For a zombie movie, it's pretty solid. But what's even more cool is that it's revealed to be more than just a zombie movie later on!

[•REC]² (2009) ★★★☆☆
The sequel wasn't as good as the first one, but it is nice to get some backstory behind the "zombies". The main actor isn't actually Spanish and his accent isn't that great (like I should be speaking about accents when I have a speech impediment when I speak Spanish lol), but still an alright watch!

Hell Camp: Teen Nightmare (2023) ★★★☆☆
This documentary was just okay. My beef with documentaries now a days are that they don't take sides as strongly as they should, and then they don't even reveal a good resolution in the end (which I get those don't always exist in real life, but c'mon). The story with this went nowhere in the end really...

[Feb 17] Bullet Train (2022) ★★★★☆
This turned out to be a better movie than I originally thought it would be. I could care less about Brad Pitt (and the majority of the actors in this movie), but the characters of Lemon and Tangerine were really great!

[Mar 02] Memories of Murder (2003) ★★★★☆
While I prefer more of Bong Joon-ho's dystopian / fantasy stories, this was pretty good too since it was based off a true story. Very sad in many ways - I listen to a lot of Asian True Crime and their police forces are absolute jokes and this movie was kind of the epitome of that (all police forces across the world are a fucking joke, but that's another rant for another day).

[Mar 22] Coherence (2013) ★★★★☆
It was super cool IMO that this movie was made low budget, pretty much with no script, and in the director(? I think)'s living room! With the whole no script thing, it proves that these actors (who aren't superstar Hollywood people) are actually very talented. The plot was really intriguing as well!

[Mar 22] Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) ★★★★☆
As someone who enjoyed the old movie, but didn't really care about it like some fans do, I did enjoy this one. I liked the inclusion of kids and women without being too pushy or political about it. I kinda wish the teenager side-plot was removed though, a lot of the scenes with Finn Wolfhard were just kinda pointless?

[Mar 23] Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire (2024) ★★★★☆
Another enjoyable inclusion into the Ghostbusters series. While I didn't like the whole "let's all fight against Phoebe for no reason" plot (and her ghost friend was a bit cringey), I did like the movie. Always good to see the OG actors, and I liked Kumail's character as well.
