  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★★

    As good as advertised. 

    Lulu Wang deftly captures the uneasiness of leaving home and the inescapable guilt that comes with living your life away from family.

    Grade: 8/10

    ★★★★½

    The Knives Out Curriculum – Mystery 101 with Rian Johnson

    Oh HELL yes. This is exactly the kind of movie I was hoping for when I started this project.

    The Last of Sheila, written by Anthony Perkins (?) and Stephen Sondheim (???) has all the makings of a fun murder mystery: hammy performances, a unique blend of characters, a provocative setting and secrets on secrets on secrets on SECRETS.

    I'm wary to get into too deep of specifics because #spoilers…

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★½

    If you're looking for a sequel to a fun movie to challenge you on a emotional level: watch Paddington 2.

    If you're looking for a sequel to push its narrative in a fresh direction: watch Paddington 2.

    If you're looking for a script that has anything resembling ambition or ingenuity: watch Paddington 2.

    If you want to continue giving these movies a pass even though I'm positive you know this one was kinda sucky because #Marvel #Is #Fun: Maybe watch…

  • Triple Frontier

    Triple Frontier

    ★★★★

    A bloody, morose, white knuckle affair about greed and its ability to ruin decent people inside and out.

    Chandor directs as if he’s auditioning to make the next Mission: Impossible and we’re all the better for it.

    Grade: 8.5/10
