    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★½

    This movie was everything I wanted and more. I enjoyed this soo much. I hope the mcu continues with the non end of the world type of villains. Plus the post credits scene made my entire day.

    Also I saw a poster for Toy Story 4 at the theater and just realized I forgot about Toy Story 4, even though its only been a week or so.

  • Yesterday

    Yesterday

    ★★★★½

    This was by far my favorite movie of the year. It was just so much fun, and I found a lot of the humor to be hilarious, especially the first act. I still dont enjoy watching Kate Mckinnon in movies, because I just dont find her that funny. But everyone did great in this movie. Also the Ed Sheeran “Hey Dude” scene is so cringy.

  • Thelma & Louise

    Thelma & Louise

    ★★★★

    Added To Ridley Scott Ranked

    Thelma and Louise is a wild ride. It won best original screenplay at the Oscars back in the day. Plus its super iconic now.

  • Talk Radio

    Talk Radio

    ★★★½

    Added To Oliver Stone Ranked

    Talk Radio is worth watching for the shock jock segments alone, but its nothing you wouldnt hear from someone like Howard Stern. Actually there are flashback sequences that he looks like  Stern, with the long black curly hair. 

    The movie is written well, and most of the performances are great. Talk Radio is a good movie. I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I though I would have.

  • Platoon

    Platoon

    ★★★★

    New Ranking Place for Oliver Stone Ranked


    Platoon was not as good as I remembered. There was not as much going on, and the acting was fine. William Dafoe was the only one with exceptional acting. Both Charie Sheen and Tom Berenger gave dull performances. 

    Its still hard to watch during certain scenes, and its thrilling during the war scenes, but it just seems mediocre against other war films. Its still a good movie, but it probably shouldn’t have won…

  • Game Change

    Game Change

    ★★★½

    Game Change is the story of how Sarah Palin became John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 election. It was a wild ride. 

    Both Julianne Moore (Sarah Palin) and Ed Harris (John McCaine) were spot on as their portrayals. It was an somewhat entertaining movie but, it was no where as good as Recount. 

    I was suprised that this movie is mostly unbiased on the subject. It doesnt really show Obama much, just that he's a celebrity in the political…

  • Toy Story 4

    Toy Story 4

    ★★★★

    Im not going to lie, this movie let me down. Toy Story 3 was the perfect ending to the trilogy, and the 4th one is just good. It was not as emotionally satisfying as those final moments of the 3rd one. It wasnt as funny, and it just isnt as special. Its not that this movie wasnt made well. This was far superior to Pixars latest sequels (Finding Dory, Incredibles 2), but I feel Pixar was close to spoiling what…

  • Screen Test: Edie Sedgwick

    Screen Test: Edie Sedgwick

    200th Review!!


    This is a 3 minute clip of Edie Sedgwick staring at the camera, but it feels like so much more. You are looking into the eyes of someone who passed away too soon. Theres a wide array of emotions that happens and you can see her go through all of them.

  • Mario Banana II

    Mario Banana II

    Part 2 of 2.

    Mario Banana II is what should have been part 1, its a black and white version of its predecessor. Warhol was trying to show that in black and white, it was ambiguous whether it was a man or a woman. Therefore a man can get aroused by it, because its unknown whether or not it was a man. 

    The sequel should have been the color version, because it would be the big reveal to those that did get aroused, that it was in face a man in drag. 

    Its a cool little experiment, and its fine for what it is.

  • Mario Banana I

    Mario Banana I

    Part 1 of 2.

    After watching The Doors and seeing Andy Warhol protrayed in the movie, I decided to watch a Warhol short. 
    The short film is basically a man in drag eating a banana seductively. Actually thats it. I understand what he was going for but it would make more sense for this to be part 2. I will explain in my review of its sequel.

  • Child's Play

    Child's Play

    ★★★½

    Added To Child's Play Ranked


    I have to say Im pretty mixed on this movie, there are aspects I like and others I dont. It was enjoyable, but there was no moment where I thought that this is why this movie was made. It was largely unnecessary. Even with movies like Seed of Chucky I can see they were going in a new direction, for better or worse. Childs Play is just more of the same, even though it did…

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    What We Do in the Shadows

    ★★★★½

    This was way different that I expected. It was goofy, funny, and charming. I may have to rewatch this sometime, because this could become one of my favorites.
