    Zombieland

    ★★★

    Oof. I could go for a Twinkie.

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    Fuck the KKK.

  • Wine Country

    Wine Country

    ★★

    So many hilarious women & so few laughs. But man, Maya still managed to steal it for me. 

    Though truly this was the inept palate cleanser I needed after We Need To Talk About Kevin.

  • We Need to Talk About Kevin

    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★★★★

    In retrospect,  not the best film to start watching on Mother’s Day.

  • The Hateful Eight

    The Hateful Eight

    ★★★½

    The fact that the vast majority of this movie unfolds in such a small space amazes me. The haberdashery is a world unto itself — both enormous and absolutely claustrophobic.

  • Dinner with Friends

    Dinner with Friends

    ★★

    I’m confused. The couple whose marriage fell apart, who then moved on & whose lives seemed to get better? We can’t be friends with them anymore? 🤔

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    Pardon the hyperbole here but, ummm. 

    WOW.

    I’ve never seen anything like this. This is a comic book come to life. Revolutionary. Stunning. And inspiring for a whole new generation of super heroes (be they human or swine).

  • Schindler's List

    Schindler's List

    ★★★★★

    Humanity at its very worst & its very best.

  • Swiss Army Man

    Swiss Army Man

    ★★

    I wanted to get over the corpse thing.

    I could not get over the corpse thing.

  • The Tale

    The Tale

    ★★★★½

    The way this film plays with the elasticity and self-deception of memories — particularly traumatic ones — is masterful.

  • Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    ★★½

    I understood the reason for making this from Liz’s POV & allowing Bundy to to deflect attention from it all with his sociopathic lies. It’s how Liz would have experienced it, certainly. But man — having a dude who was so monstrous to so many innocent women get to play 95% of this movie as a charming, hapless Houdini was difficult to watch. But then Liz — the girl whose story we’re supposed to be getting — feels hollow & one-dimensional. It all feels like a missed opportunity.


    But hey. Zac Efron was pretty good.

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★

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

    I love how we rebel against spooky boi’s notion of this twisted karmic pact for a hot second before we’re all like yeah but which kid gets it?

    Harrowing & fantastical in a way only Yorgos can deliver.
