    In this chatty video I review my favorite films of all time, including some 90’s classics, futuristic dystopias, dark comedies, way too many rom coms, and of course some allegories for modern-day capitalism. These are all the movies I loved so much they inspired me to go to UCLA film school so I hope you give them a watch this summer if you have a chance :)

    i l o v e the movie pans labyrinth and i love its exploration of civil disobedience but in general I just find it super beautiful (it is definitely very guillermo del toro, as one would expect)

                  Worst taste in movies; Cinema for the most part is laid to rest and everything she chose was post cinema. She also said OUATIH was Tarantino's worst! c'mon more like one of his best

                    Was going to list a pretentious list of films I adored in film school but I’d rather list two films I became fond of. Pride & Prejudice (2005) and Lost in Translation (2003).

                          I loved La La Land and I live in Kentucky. I think even if the specifics don't match to your own life, the overall concept/dichotomy of self fulfillment vs. seeking that sense of fulfillment through a relationship still rings true. Also most of the music was good. Not normally a huge fan of musicals.

                          Also I gave "Sorry to Bother You" a chance but it came off as a bit preachy, surface level and on the nose, which was a shame because I love the starting actor in Atlanta. Also I was in rehab with 40 other women when I watched it, and they were not really feeling it so I probably would have been able to finish otherwise. I do remember being shook by that girl's earrings though!

                            You have to watch “Stranger Than Fiction” - my favorite movie! Also “Kærlighed På Film” is really beautiful and dark.

                                  Okay I watched "Sorry to bother you" and it was insane, I have never watched such a meaningful but ridiculous movie in my life. I would defiantly recommend.

                                      I just wanted to thank you. Everytime I feel downI watch one of your videos and start feeling better. I think they're filled with warm thoughts and good intentios, plus some funny jokes. You seem relatable and optimistic but not like a kitty poster. (sorry for the bad english, you're awesome!)+

                                              You should make a video about which movies inspired you in terms of fashion icons
                                              And one about fashion trends through decades!
                                              Also, more videos about movies rewiew and recommendations pls!

                                                  My favourite is the Before Trilogy. I related to Before Sunrise for my early 20s and Before Sunset in my late 20s. I can understand Before Midnight but that movie doesn't hit me as hard (or not yet). Loved LaLaLand, Gone Girl and 500 Days of Summer too. Thanks for the movie recommendations!!! Cant wait to watch the few left on your list :D :D :D

I describe it like a better version of a hallmark movie but that does not do it justice. It is about much more than what the advertising showed.
