    ★★★★

    “Baby. B-A-B-Y”

    Just rewatched it and I can honestly say it’s so much better the second time around. From Wright’s sick ass editing to his fantastic use of audio clues, a second viewing let’s you enjoy the movie in a whole new way. Killer flick from start to finish.

    ★★★★

    Jesus Christ. I watched this without knowing what it was about and let me tell you, I was not ready. It went from a 0 to a 10 to a 27 real quick. The cinematography is beautiful and I loved the score, but just don’t make the same mistake I made and eat marinara pasta when watching this.

  • The Lobster

    The Lobster

    ★★★★½

    God damn this is good. Colin Farrell is spectacular and gives one of his best performances ever. Everything is right about this film; the pacing, character development, and of course the screenplay. I only watched it because it was recommended from multiple friends and I was completely blown away with how well it’s written. Every scene has meaning and purpose, which leads to a very satisfying viewing experience. It’s on Netflix, you won’t regret watching it.

  • Outlaw King

    Outlaw King

    ★★★

    A worse version of Brveheart as the film did very little to develop characters which was weird because they definitely had the runtime to spare with it only being 122min long. However the action scenes are done very well and entertaining to watch.

  • The Man Who Knew Too Little

    The Man Who Knew Too Little

    ★★★

    Not gonna lie it’s actually pretty funny, for one reason: it’s entirely self aware. The movie knows it’s place and makes the most of it. Bill Murray practically caries the film but everyone else sucks. It worth the watch but don’t expect to come out of it with a new world view.

  • Heat

    Heat

    ★★★★★

    Start to finish, Heat is an incredible watch. Michael Mann’s magnum opus executes every facet of filmmaking with precision and style. If you’re familiar with Mann, you know that Heat is a film that has been in the making for almost two decades; the original draft was written in 1979 and there was even a TV movie made from this script called L.A Takedown that Mann directed. Heat is a film that was put in a unique position - not…

  • Deadpool 2

    Deadpool 2

    ★★½

    It had its moments, but for the most part it recycled jokes and It didn’t have the same “trailblazing” feel to it as the original.

  • Incredibles 2

    Incredibles 2

    ★★★

    Worth watching but I definitely set my expectations too high. You just can’t get better than the original.

  • Blue Is the Warmest Color

    Blue Is the Warmest Color

    ★★★

    It's all the worse things about New Wave French: meandering, no identity, and shots that last way too long. It defiantly does some things well, such as the well development of characters but there are some artistic choices that I'm not sure why the director included, like the 2.35:1 aspect ratio seems too wide and is distracting.

  • Split

    Split

    ★★★

    "Split" may have actually been M. Night Shyamalan's best movie since "Signs". Thrilling, suspenseful, and just a fun movie. The only real problem is that the the plot is kinda shaky and that really took me out of the movie.

  • Bumblebee

    Bumblebee

    ★★½

    As far Transformers movies goes, which isn’t saying much, this movie is fine - but forgettable. Acting performances were mediocre although that really doesn’t matter for this type of movie. Not sure why John Cenna was in this movie. Overall I’d have rather sat in my car for the length of the runtime. Don’t see it

  • Zero Dark Thirty

    Zero Dark Thirty

    ★★★½

    It’s a pretty good movie... but it’s so forgettable that I forgot to review it. I literally had to look up the synopsis to remember what happens. Decent watch: thrilling, intense, and patriotic as shit. God bless America.
