Rating Meaning

The 1-10 rating thing doesnโ€™t really mesh with my thinking. So instead, Iโ€™ve tagged movies with symbols indicating where they succeed. Doubled symbols indicate that a movie is superlative in that regard.

Symbol Meaning
๐Ÿ˜† Made me laugh.
๐Ÿ’— Made me feel.
๐Ÿ‘€ Neat spectacle.
๐Ÿ’ญ Itโ€™s a thinker.
๐ŸŽผ The score carries it.

Some of My Favorites

Strictly Ballroom
Itโ€™s dorky and quirky, but itโ€™s a solidly executed rom com, and I canโ€™t help but cry like a baby when I watch it.
I Am Mother
One of the most compelling cinematic depictions of an AI, tight emotional drama, and an amazingly designed pracical-effects robot costume.

Other Good Movies

Memories (1995)
Three animated science-fiction short stories. The first story, Magnetic Rose, is especially excellent.
Mystery Movie on the Moon.
Rocket Man (1997)
Iโ€™ll be honest. This move is probably objectively trash, and it ranks among my favorites purely for nostalgiaโ€™s sake.
David Bowie steals the show as the scheming ruler of an army of muppets.
Baahubali and its sequel
Basically Hamlet, if Hamlet had superpowers. Borderline-nonsensical action scenes.
