Double Feature: The Babysitter and The Babysitter Killer Queen

Double Feature Movie

Saw The Babysitter and Killer Queen back to back the other day and figured, oh, what a lovely double feature. Hence the new Double Feature feature I guess. Even though I have pinned sequels together here it won’t be always like this. I was thinking more of a genre match or a mood connection, what ever works in that moment. Anyway, this is two movie reviews in one and I’m gonna start doing these more often. First up: The Babysitter…

My Brother Jordan (2020)

Documentary

Rarely do I find something on Youtube that literally crawls into my soul and crushes me. My Brother Jordan is not necessarily a story I’d seek out myself. It’s filled with sadness and it’s about missing a part of you that can never be replaced. In a grander scheme of things, it’s a love letter to an amazing brother. And I mean.. just thinking about it is making me cry but I don’t regret clicking on a documentary video on…

Love, Guaranteed (2020)

Movie

After watching Love, Guaranteed and penning its very quick and yet informative review on Letterboxd I decided to dive deeper. Not just because this movie deserves a deeper, more in depth review but because I really wanted to get all my frustration out. Netflix rom-coms seem to be the perfect victims for this need to rant. They are too cheesy and too unaware of the cringe they produce. Or is it exactly what people want?! Is Love, Guaranteed the kind…

Tenet (2020)

Movie

The day has finally arrived. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is out there in the world! Unfortunately not everyone can enjoy it on the big screen and I must emphasise that this is not important enough to risk your health. Stay home if you need to. But… if you do have a chance, I recommend watching this on a big screen. Because despite it having a few flaws it’s still a great cinematic experience. And you could see my country, Estonia, on…

Palm Springs (2020)

Movie

Maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t seen many newly released movies lately. It could also be because I saw a lot (and I mean a lot) of bad movies right before seeing Palm Springs. But one thing is for certain, Palm Springs is one hell of a treat! It has it all: a surprising element, romance, humour and great performances. If 2020 would end now, Palm Springs would probably be one of my favourites of this entire year.…

365 Days (2020)

Foreign Movie

There comes a time in ones life when they must ask themselves: if life is so shit, why not make it worse? And when that question is raised, the doubt starts to linger. Why not? Why not put yourself through something awful because life’s pretty messed up anyways. Maybe it will help, maybe it will not make things worse. So then you make up your mind and decide to go for it… only to realise that life was never that…

Emma. (2020)

Movie

I wouldn’t call myself a Jane Austen fan. With my inherent ability to avoid classics, I haven’t picked any of her books up. I do however love the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice with all my heart. So when I saw that Emma. was available online after spending so little time in the theatres, I jumped on the opportunity to check it out. And just like that I spent my Friday evening together with Emma..…

1917 (2019)

Movie

Seeing 1917 a week ago left its mark. To say I was a emotional after seeing the movie would be an understatement. I was, for the lack of a better word, a wreck. Not just because I tend to get emotional about war movies in the first place but because 1917 was a good movie aiming for an emotional impact. A movie that I’ve wanted to write about for a week… but didn’t find the right words for. I found…

Doctor Sleep (2019)

Movie

Back in April 2018 I wrote that the ending of The Shining left a lot of questions unanswered. Well, enter Doctor Sleep that answers all of them while trying to balance the new with the old and dropping some old into the new. This was definitely not an easy task but hey, I think it turned out better than I anticipated.…
