american beauty (1999)

aslında uzun bir öneri yazısı yazmak isterdim, çünkü artık huy edinmiştim bunu biliyorsunuz. ama kendimi oyalamak, yanımdan bana dokunmadan akıp geçen hayata ellerimi daldırmak için uzandım bu filme. bu halde izleyince iki saat değil, yaklaşık dört buçuk saat sürdü. yine de bitirdim. şu durumda bile önermeye gelecek kadar güzel bir film. üzerine düşünülmesi gereken çok noktası var. bu nedenle belki yeniden izlerim. kısa keserek bir alıntı bırakıyor ve izlemenizi çok çok tavsiye ediyorum: 


Çektiğim en güzel şeyi görmek ister misin?

Kar yağışına dakikalar kalan günlerden biriydi. Hava elektrik yüklüydü. Neredeyse duyabiliyordun. Ve bu torba oradaydı. Oynamam için yalvaran küçük bir çocuk gibi, benimle dans ediyordu. On beş dakika için. İşte o gün fark ettim, her şeyin ardında hayat vardı. Ve iyilik dolu, inanılmaz bir güç. Korkmak için hiçbir neden olmadığına inanmamı istiyordu. Hem de hiç. Video zavallı bir bahane, biliyorum. Ama hatırlamama yardım ediyor. Hatırlamaya ihtiyacım var. Dünyada o kadar çok güzellik var ki, bazen dayanamayacağımı hissediyorum.

Baby Driver

this movie is flawless and here are some reasons why:

  • the whole soundtrack
  • the entire beginning sequence
  • when Griff (Jon Bernthal) gets in the car during the first heist and points forward and Baby slams it backwards
  • sign language
  • Joe made me so happy?
  • also when he signed “who’s the girl?”
  • Ansel Elgort’s lips? blocked
  • you can hear his tinnitus (ringing sound) when he’s not listening to music
  • you can’t hear his tinnitus when he’s with Deborah
  • when he takes one ear bud out the music shifts to one side
  • Kevin Spacey. just overall. i love him
  • “what the fuck?”
  • when he goes to get coffee and he’s listening to Harlem Shuffle by Bob & Earl you can see the lyrics graffiti-ed on the walls and poles and stuff behind him as he’s walking
  • when Baby is ordering coffee and he goes “yeah yeah yeah” in time with the song
  • Baby reciting back the entire plan and then looking at Bats and going “questions?”
  • “That’s my Baby.” “Fuck yo’ Baby.”
  • the gunshots are perfectly in time with the music during every fight sequence
  • when Buddy cocks Darling’s gun for her
  • Darling’s outfits
  • she’s also rly pretty the fuck
  • Brighton Rock??? What the fuck???? so good I love Queen
  • “And you’re in a pink and sparkly mood?” “I am now.”
  • Every time Baby smirks I wanna punch him
  • the sunglasses scene
  • the scene where he’s running away from the cops is just as intense as the car chase scenes and the gun fights
  • Simon and Garfunkel’s Baby Driver is so catchy fuck
  • “Wait, I have to start the song over.”
  • When he goes into the diner and it starts playing When Something Is Wrong With My Baby
  • Baby singing along to Neat Neat Neat
  • “Now you know I hate taking candy from Baby…”
  • Jamie Foxx’s character was unpredictable, and a little unnerving. He wasn’t like terrifying but there definitely were moments where I wasn’t sure what he was gonna do and it made me nervous
  • side note my dad was peeing when Bats died and when he came back and I told him Baby killed Bats he went “ah, good.”
  • “You took something from me that I love, now you know I gotta do the same to you.” Oh yea for sure he’s gonna shoot Deb- FUCK
  • that part was honestly so good I spent like 5 minutes with my mouth hanging open like fuck you Buddy you can’t take that away from him :’( 
  • but it also shows that Buddy really understood Baby and remember that he kinda stood up for Baby and they were bonding a lil with music and stuff it just shows how unpredictable he was
  • I have legitimately been listening to the soundtrack for this movie since I saw it a week ago today
  • his name is Miles
  • if Edgar Wright and James Gunn made a movie together I would die immediately upon entering the theater

don’t worry I’ll see this movie 8937459 more times so expect more of this

Baby Driver (2017), dir. Edgar Wright

“So here’s the thing, I’m looking at some of the country’s finest thugs and of course young Mozart in a go-cart over there. People love great bank robbery stories, so let’s give them something full and brazen as fuck to talk about over their lattes.”

Someone: Have you ever witnessed a crime?

Me (In a bitter tone, thinking about the 2017 Tony Awards): Something like that…
