    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    Once there was a Hollywood much different than ours. Quentin Tarantino made his memory and dreams about it come to live in the best kind of nostalgia called Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. I say dreams, because like all fairy-tales that begin with “once upon a time”, this is a fantasy. For this fantasy to work, however, you must first be in the know of the reality It takes place in. So a bit of historical context is really…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    Next level Vitamin D ☀️🌸💮🏵️🌻
    Everybody get your sunglasses and flower hats ready and let the festivities commence! Lady Macbeth star Florence Pugh guides us through a hellish folk-nightmare in the middle of Sweden... and it's horrifying.

    ★★★

    You have no idea how long it took me to notice the gradual de-saturation. Anthony Hopkins owns this role, also FLORENCE PUGH!

    Alita: Battle Angel

    ★★★½

    A-bsolutely Awestruck
    If there be one "original" blockbuster from recent years that deserved a sequel, it'd be this. Attila is a fierce war machine and cute sex doll (jk) all in one, played by a visually enhanced Rosa Salazar (not the rightful heir of Slytherin). She starts out as this innocent girl that is - just like the audience- in complete wonder of what she is witnessing. I wish that first act could have gone on forever, but alas, real…

  • November Criminals

    November Criminals

    Chloe Moretz and Ansel Elgort having sex while a subplot is going on about some gang-murder of a friend of theirs we saw for 10 seconds. How someone could make such a slow and uninteresting movie is just beyond me.
