  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★★★★

    Jeez the Internet sure is angry with this one, so I can’t wait to completely avoid discourse on it or get slandered for my opinion lol
    Was this necessary? Not really, but then again, nothing in the entertainment world is. We take in what we want and we push the rest to the side. Do I love the original film? Absolutely! It’s a masterpiece that i’ve seen too many times to count. Will I watch this as much? Who knows,…

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★★

    For some reason, I was expecting this to be a mutated alligator film, but instead, I got a film that was both entirely plausible yet massively ridiculous at the same time
    The basic premise of it could, and probably has to some extent, totally happened, but Crawl goes absolutely off the rails
    The Raimi flair is evident throughout this movie, and not much can be said about it other than go in without expectations and enjoy the absolute hell out of it!
    There’s an adorable pupper in this that you won’t want to miss, and a great cameo from Chance the Snapper

  • Chicago

    Chicago

    ★★★★

    I don't mean to toot my own horn, but if Jesus Christ lived in Chicago today, and he had come to me and he had five thousand dollars, let's just say things would have turned out differently.

    WHAT A SHOW
    Every inch of this film oozes with a stageshow, from bombastic performances and booming instrumentals to the theatrical elements of the costumes and set designs
    Nothing is more entertaining than the story of criminals, and when they’re this fun, you’re…

  • Spider-Man 3

    Spider-Man 3

    ★★★

    This wasn’t nearly as bad as I remembered it
    Yeah it’s a little jumbled and overly complicated, but at its core, it’s a decent Spidey film
    I really like what they did with Sandman, and Harry in the second half is great
    The black suit still looks great, and some CGI is decent, while other parts look flat out bad
    The dancing scene is the peak of cinema in all honesty, and as much of a meme as this movie…

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★

    I don’t think i’ve ever hated a movie character as much as I hate Brad Davis
    Dude is an absolute dweeb and deserves to get clowned in front of the whole class like that
    Absolute herb
    THAT Mysterio scene is golden and the Peter Tingle scene may be the most powerful we’ve seen Spidey yet, and it’s so damn glorious

  • Aziz Ansari: Right Now

    Aziz Ansari: Right Now

    ★★★★

    Incredibly intimate and personal, Aziz Ansari has taken a completely different approach to comedy/stand-up, and it works so well
    With some incredibly concise direction from Spike Jonze, this special truly feels like a direct address to everyone who wondered how or if he would ever return to the spotlight
    He addressed the sexual misconduct from last year in a way that felt legitimate and genuinely self-reflective, and whether people forgive him or not (which is entirely understandable if you don’t),…

  • Yesterday

    Yesterday

    ★★★★

    Was super excited for this when it was first announced, then I got scared at the lukewarm reactions, but as you can tell by the rating, I was extremely and pleasantly surprised
    There’s a whole lotta hate for Yesterday that I am not understanding at all
    At times a bit cheesy and definitely over-simplified, this love letter to the Beatles put a smile on my face the entire time
    From the always fantastic Lily James to the incredible Himesh Patel,…

  • Spider-Man 2

    Spider-Man 2

    ★★★★½

    What’s so wild is how long it takes for Doc Ock to even make his first appearance, and that’s because this incredible sequel puts Peter’s internal struggle at the forefront of the film
    The choices Peter must make get layered on top of one another so effortlessly, and Raimi does a great job of showcasing the toll being Spider-Man has taken on Peter
    A beautifully done comic adaptation that has action that’s aged beautifully, Spider-Man 2 is one of the…

  • Pineapple Express

    Pineapple Express

    ★★★★★

    An absolute classic, once again, Letterboxd got haters and I will take whatever attack is thrown my way
    Seth Rogen calling Joe Lo Truglio a chimp fuck gets me every single time

  • Spider-Man

    Spider-Man

    ★★★★

    Spider-Man is my favorite superhero for a very simple reason. He’s utterly relatable, always funny, and he’s from Queens!
    But in all seriousness, Spidey always hits home for me
    As much as I love the MCU Spidey, Spider-Man and Raimi truly understand what Spidey/Peter Parker is at his core
    Definitely very campy and some moments haven’t aged nearly as well as others, so much love and authenticity is crammed into this film that set the standard for superhero films back…

  • Frozen

    Frozen

    ★★★★

    Something felt so dated about this animation and I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but it still looked great
    The music is fantastic as usual, and the characters are all extremely lovable and charming as hell
    The first time I saw this was one of the few Disney films I didn’t see the twist coming, and man, it still stings
    I’m a sucker for these types of movies, but honestly, it’s entertaining, so I won’t sit and nitpick…

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★

    Far From Home solidifies to me that Holland is the best Peter Parker that’s been on screen thus far, and for a plethora of reasons
    The love and understanding for the character is so apparent in every inch of this film, from his internal struggles to the comedic, awkward side of him
    The film takes a while to get going, and almost lost me in the first act with some questionable choices, but the second and third acts bring it…
