    "A guy gets on the MTA here and dies, do you think anyone will notice?"

    This is a solid screenplay in every sense of the word, constantly developing the characters through sharp and contemplative dialogue. Pushing the plot towards with super thrilling action sequences, utilizing the neo-noir vibe of late-night LA, and met with extremely convincing performances from both Tom Cruise and Jaime Foxx.

    What makes the story incredibly convincing is that the antagonist has everything the protagonist lacks. Which…

    I'm a huge fan of Makoto Shinkai's previous work, Your Name, I thought that film balancing Shinkai's formulaic structure with magical realism perfectly while tackling some themes. So I was pretty excited for this, I had fun with it but I didn't like it that much. I didn't expect it to be as good as your name but this one doesn't do much other than just do Shinkai's formula of a boy and girl falling in love and a magical…

    I had a nightmare where this movie sucked ass, so I guess this counts as a log.

    "Cops won't give a sh*t about context"

    This is like the most Sorkin story I could think of. A courtroom drama with witty characters based on a movie that's based on a true story? Like it's so up his alley, it's crazy.

    It was really enjoyable and gripping for the most part. The performances were pretty good although some of them felt just acceptable to me (like Joseph Gordon-Levitt sadly). The editing might actually be the best part,…
