  • 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

    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


    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
