Casablanca (1942)

Man, women sure are dumb, right? #bechdel Took me like 30 minutes to figure out the geopolitical intricacies of this movie. Good plot and good pacing.

The Godfather, Part II

Wow! Don't remember being blown away by the first as much as I was with this. A lot of it tbh made me think of The Sopranos and Mafia. So many characters and a complicated plot but it's nice that it doesn't dumb it down for the viewers. Great pacing. Found myself excited for the other timeline.

The Shawshank Redemption

As far as I can tell, pretty much a perfect movie... I say pretty much because the ending bugged me slightly. Felt tacked on since it breaks the narrative theme in order to have a happy ending. If you see the movie as a plot about a man doing something and resolving that, you're missing the bigger picture and theme of hope. There's so many layers and parallels going on in the movie that it might take a few watches to really truly appreciate how great it is.

I Love You, Man

Reasonably enjoyable. Watched it on HBO. Only a couple of big laughs. A bit touching. Kinda sick of the usual alt. comedy cast cameos--gets incredibly distracting. And then the random celebrity cameos like Lou Ferrigno and Rush just feel like filler. There was almost no conflict at all. To be honest, this just feels like extra scenes from every Apatow film that somehow got edited into an 80-minute movie

Citizen Kane
Citizen Kane (1941)

Well-made film, but it doesn't stand the test of time like the Hitchcock movies in my opinion. Maybe we've all just made fun of this iconic movie, or it just holds onto a very specific old style and some cliches. Sometimes though, it's just plain hard to get past the weird cuts and edits. I also don't care for the message--which almost seems to be a cynical idea that time makes us all despicable jerks. Maybe I just haven't dived into it deep enough, but it's difficult for me to understand motivation for half the things Kane does, let alone sympathize with any of it.
