Movies I Watched in 2017

  1. Money Monster (2016) // DVD
    Clooney & Roberts but we still turned this off halfway thru bc of painful dialogue & unbelievability
  2. Jackie (2016) // in theaters

  6. Nowhere Boy (2009) // Streaming
    I always forget how much this is really about Lennon, his mom, & his aunt. Also Lennon didn't have blue eyes
  7. Hidden Figures (2016) // in theaters
    Exceptional. "Because it's what's next" comes to mind. Cried during the opening and four times after that.
  8. Angus, Thongs, & Perfect Snogging (2008) // Netflix
    Deep shame, but 8th grade me loves it every time

    If you don't stop & look around once in a while, you just might go crazy bc of thesis
  13. Hurly Burly (1998) // Folino
    like a merry-go-round existential crisis that you can't get off of

    short, maybe could do without v.o.

    I wanna dance like Uma Thurman
  19. The Bourne Identity (2002) // Folino
    baby Matt Damon & Lola
  20. Obvious Child (2014) // Streaming
    Any combination of musical montages + Paul Simon + Jenny Slate get me
  21. Beautiful Creatures (2013) // Streaming
    So many A-list talent in one weirdly entertaining B-level movie
  22. Finding Neverland (2004) // Folino
    Second star to the right & straight on to forever will I enjoy Peter Pan
  23. Jackie Brown (1997) // Folino
    Enjoyed it more than anticipated (minus the violence against women, commentary on gun culture in America)
  24. Kong: Skull Island (2017) // Theater
    Apocalypse, now that's a movie homage I can get behind
  25. The Crossing Guard (1995) // Folino
    Over dramatic chase scene
  26. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) // Netflix
    Delightful. Bowie makes it.
  27. Killshot (2008) // Folino
    Mickey Rooney is not Native American & this is the worst. period. movie. period. ever. period.
  28. Paper Man (2009) // Folino
  29. Dominion (2016) // Folino
    Captivating & experimental without tipping over into pretension
  30. The Time Being (2012) // Folino
    Beautiful, but flawed
  31. The Hateful 8 (2016) // Folino
    Just because Tarantino can, doesn't mean he should
  32. Rattle and Hum (1988) // Streaming
    I'm going to fall in love with the first person who takes me to a U2 concert
  33. Forrest Gump (1994) // Netflix
    Sure to be a "too late movie review" candidate.
  34. Beautiful Creatures (2013) // TV
    I know I know. I'm just continually fascinated by this movie.
  35. Band Aid (2017) // Theater
    Phenomenal. All my favorite things. Bad-ass females, unapologetic music montages, & Fred Armisen
  36. Wonder Woman (2017) // Theater
    Simply, love drives out fear & conquers all. I hope everyone else got annoyed/a taste of what it's like to be told no at every turn when Wonder Woman clearly knew what she was doing
  37. Band Aid (2017) // Theater
    Yes again. Yes still amazing.
  38. Wonder Woman (2017) // Theater
    Still wondrous
  39. Sand Castle (2017) // Netflix
    A Dad choice
  40. Logan (2017) // Red Box Rental
    Two observations: Dr. Peter Benton looks so old & there are more decapitations than I expected
  41. Baby Driver (2017) // Theater
    I saw this because I was so upset over my recent eyebrow wax being messed up & boy was I not prepared to fall in love with a movie
  42. The Big Sick (2017) // Theater
    Came into a completely full theater 10min late. Everyone laughed together & it was so much fun
  43. National Treasure (2004) // Amazon
    Slept through some of it, but when in Philadelphia
  44. Sabrina (1954) // In the Park
  45. The Brothers Bloom (2008) // HBO
    #accidentallyWesAnderson
  46. Spider-Man Homecoming (2017) // Theater
    There was a great movie happening around Tom Holland & I enjoyed the title & end credits a lot. Also just bc a movie is set in high school with kids kinda figuring their life does not mean it's John Hughes-ian.
  47. The Beguiled (2017) // Theater
    Lovely, haunting, but I was waiting for one more last scare or sinister moment. Also, it was disappointing to hear the changes Sofia made in terms of race
  48. Gifted (2017) // Streaming
    Probably my new favorite movie and I can't fully express why
  49. Baby Driver (2017) // Theater
    As it deserves to be seen. Still a crazy, fantastic ride the second time around.
  50. Hot Rod (2007) // Streaming
    V quotable
  51. Dunkirk (2017) // Theater
    Visceral. Unexpected. Exceptional.
  52. My Blind Brother (2016) // Streaming
    A rather quiet, odd movie in which everyone is kinda horrible & you root for the least of them
  53. 20th Century Women (2016) // Amazon
    I honestly didn't expect it to be so artful & for it to be so weird to see the Beckett Mansion again & so clean. It's life at an interesting cross road period
  54. Obvious Child (2014) // Streaming
    I wish there was a way to erase the memory of watching a movie so that you could experience the joy, anticipation, excitement of seeing everything for the first time again
  55. Atomic Blonde (2017) // Theatre
    A little boring?
  56. HP & the Chamber of Secrets (2002) // DVD
  57. Rumor Has It... (2005) // Netflix
    What cheese, but oddly endearing to watch a 2005 romcom
  58. Dunkirk (2017) // Theater
    The silence & the image of the British fighter pilot sailing over Dunkirk // the reflection of the fire in the pilot's face
  59. Landline (2017) // Theater
    I could watch Jenny Slate do anything in anything forever
  60. The Founder (2016) // Netflix
    This movie started off a fun, chuckle inducing little biopic about the start of one of the most famous brands in America. By the end, the capitalist desire for money and power at the expense of human dignity had me in tears.
  61. Speech & Debate (2017) // Netflix
    Lin Manuel-Miranda is a genie in a 1980's speech & debate promo
  62. Beauty & the Beast (2017) // DVD Redbox
    WHY DOES EMMA WATSON HAVE AN ENGLISH ACCENT?
  63. The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) // Theater
    Simon & Garfunkel universe > Marvel universe
  64. Fever Pitch (2005) // DVD
    They'll break ya heart, kid
