    The Year is 2018: Ranked and Reviewed

    I went into Widows expecting another powerhouse piece from Steve McQueen. When I left the theater I walked out unsteady and completely floored — particularly in awe at the different set of emotions that overwhelmed me throughout the entirety of the film. This isn't just a "heist" movie; Widows explores grief, loss, hope and heartache amidst an almost chaotic and present time — a moment in time where it couldn't have appeared any…

    The Year is 2018: Ranked and Reviewed

    A forty year old mask, pale and tattered and engulfed by an evil presence with the blackest of eyes; the devil's eyes. The Shape looming in the shadows on the night of October 31st — his outfit melded into the crowd of cloaked children in the neighborhood of Haddonfield. Vengeance, madness, or nature; The Shape returns with murder on his mind, and the strange warmth of blood on his hands. It's his night;…

    No Strings Attached: A Continuing List of Cherished Favorites

    Ari Aster directs this sheer-horror-in-the-household-of-a-disfigured-family with the upmost of appreciation to convincing genre and storytelling. Hereditary is still as good as it was in the theater over a year ago—a night I won't forget—and maybe even better in the comfort of your home at dark. The slow, brooding nature leads to one of horror's most unforgivable endings—each scene beforehand building and building towards an implosion of emotion within its characters and…

  • Kindergarten Cop

    Kindergarten Cop

    ★★★½

    Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this fun and surprising mix of comedy and action with a silly premise that would really only work with the man himself in the picture. Kindergarten Cop goes from funny, to intense, to almost profound in the way it slips in its heavy topics of single parenting and the effects on the children. Mostly, the film is there to watch Arnie handle a bunch of erratic kids and turn them into a class of cadets, which honestly runs pretty smoothly within its compelling adult side of the film about a drug lord who looks like a second hand Val Kilmer.

    3.4/5

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★½

    The Year is 2017: Ranked and Reviewed

    The wettest kind of consciousness, percolating memories that flood with no specific significance, nor cascade with the true essence of meaning—they sit, stir, and rattle the brain with all of its attempts at explanation. Beckoning an existential gaze that beautifies the believers and the heroes—surrounded in a stream of fake electronic components and fake matter. To these wanderers, life is fenced in and forgotten, intact with their provisions and protocol—this is the future,…

  • The Void

    The Void

    ★★

    A vessel of John Carpenter gloss and shock. The Fog meets Assault on Precinct 13 meets The Thing, fizzling in a flimsy array of Carpenter claustrophobia. Cults, cloaks, and crosses (not to mention triangles); an illuminati-astronomical parasite honing to a drained abyss. Emergency-red brightness cascading on victims and heroes, drowning in an dissolute echo of dread. An urge to fight, run, and creep. A shitstorm of a night for the characters and the audience. A hell-bent creation of freaks and…
