  • Tick Tick…Boom!

Okay, so Tick Tick…Boom! was put here at the bottom because I NEED to talk about it! If you have been keeping up with Oscar stuff this movie season, you will know that Andrew Garfield has been nominated for his performance in this movie and the film as a whole was nominated for best editing so I just had to check it out for myself — I wasn’t quite sure what the movie was about at the time but I was intrigued. Well, the story is that of Jonathan Larson who wrote one of the longest-running Broadway shows, Rent, before he wrote it. I thought that this was gonna be more of a biopic of someone just retelling his life, but Tick Tick…Boom is actually a musical written by Larson himself about his life and what it was like to be turning 30-years-old and writing musicals. It was absolutely amazing and it changed my life! The story is so inspiring and heartbreaking and funny at all the same time and the music, oh God the music! I watched the movie on February 20, it is March 4 and I have probably heard that soundtrack over 200 times! I can not get over how awesome Garfield plays this role and what an amazing singer he is — he deserves that Oscar PERIOD! Whether you are into musicals or not, this movie is an absolute masterpiece and needs to be seen by EVERYONE! It is on Netflix and the soundtrack is available wherever you get your music.

What I watched over the last month that you SHOULD NOT be watching

  • Texas Chainsaw Massure (2022)

My lord was this movie trash! I was really excited about this, as were a lot of other horror fans, and it absolutely bombed! There were just a lot of stray plot points that didn’t make sense and didn’t really fit into the story. It was just all over the place and I just thought it was bad. There were a few things I enjoyed though one of those being the plot that they TRIED to start with. The whole idea was that these yuppy hipsters wanted to create a community in Texas where they could just get away and start fresh (as hipsters like to do). But Leatherface obviously didn’t find the humor in that and killed them all on a bus which was pretty cool. I also liked the amount of blood — for a shitty movie, there was SO much gore and it was awesome! Like, this movie was on the same gore level as the Saw franchise and the Hostal franchise; it was kinda insane! Other than those two things it was kinda trash, but if you are into horror I guess it doesn’t hurt to check it out if you have nothing better to do — this movie is also on Netflix.

  • Small Apartments
  • District 9
  • Ass Backwards
