  • The Pianist

    The Pianist

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A movie with extreme talent and supurbly emotional scenes. The title itself is beyond perfect. It says so much about the theme and character of the movie itself. The shift in identity from a renown rich piano star to nothing more than just simply a deteriorated pianist playing to make a subdecent living is brilliant; the end of the arch is something that’s even harder to explain, you’ve got to watch to experience the full evolution of what is the…

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★½

    Eighth Grade offers insightful cometary on the difference between being an adult and what it’s like being an adult. Extremely relatable, funny in a dainty way, Eighth Grade allows for an understand of situational stigmas that the main character faces. Being a well esteemed comic, Burnham finds a balance between satire and seriousness in a screenplay that is utterly astonishing for a rookie to do. This is a movie that a hoary old generation can’t find an enjoyable, while remaining…

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★

    Witness Mr.Herrington deliver the best line in the entire MCU.



    Also, Tom Holland
    Also, amazing cg
    Also, great action sequences. Spider-Man has never moved so fluently and with such panache. Each and every sequence felt like a cohesive, choreographed ballet routine, each intricate movement serving as its own performance.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    Ok so two little notes to make for this movie: 
    People were disappointed in the jerky movement of Holland and the high energy he brings to the character. Also the fact that his suit is super OP makes some people feel uneasy about the MCUs take. But that’s the entire point, Holland plays a vital part in understanding how the comics portrayed him: a super excitable, awkward but not over doing it (cough cough MacGuire), puberty stucken teenage that just…

  • Whiplash

    Whiplash

    ★★★★½

    A young director. An unproven, blossoming actor. A seasoned, battle-tested anchor of a supporting actor. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, but this movie is nothing short of amazing. J.K. Simmons gave, what I consider, the epitome of what it takes to portray both supportive and anger at in single scene and/or sentence. A good director will allow his audience to see that a character is feeling an emotion. On the contrary, what a great director will do is provide…
