[Letterboxd Film Diary]

this was too iconic a comedy i’m crying imagine being this hilarious and sweet and having such genuine arcs for every kid and every parent without sacrificing any ounce of comedy………………. of the three parents, one is a divorcee and one is a single mom, and of the kids, one is biracial Indian and one is a lesbian. one of my favorite comedies in recent history

i am………… disgusted. no this was not my choice to see it but i saw it so let me just say: Noah is fucking creepy and possessive. I hate him

Vanellope is the first lesbian Disney princess (okay actually though this was a fun movie i liked it a very worthy sequel !!!)

i am incapable of saying anything negative about this movie. i would watch it fifty times straight it is beautiful it is exactly my kind of fast-paced-heist-but-you-like-all-the-characters-and-it’s-super-funny movie

  1. Wow, good for you! I’m so glad that you were able to accomplish so much in just one month!!! I’m sure that you’ll receive plenty of letters of acceptance from all the colleges you are interested in attending!

    I hope your December ends up being just as great as your November was!

    P.S. I agree, the only word that accurately describes the Kissing Booth is TRASH lol
