    PREY just kicks so much ass— haven’t even seen a PREDATOR film in years but this feels like it carries so much of the same go for broke popcorn energy as the original yet in a completely different way— I wish this whole trend of legacy followups would do this— a high concept premise so good it should be used for every entry going forward— takes the bones of the original and reinvents it in such a fresh way— a unique…

    what a surprise— and unintentionally a weirdly perfect Thanksgiving weekend movie— THE WONDER is a movie that I knew nothing about before going in— just that I’ll watch literally anything with Florence Pugh— but it’s a film that, because of that, I found legitimately captivating as I invested myself in just where it was going

    the opening and ending (both already drawing both praise and criticism in equal measure) immediately got my attention— Brechtian in how it instantly invites us…

    bigger, bolder, and just overall better than the first— and this coming from somebody that really loves KNIVES OUT in spite of its flaws— but this one— while still featuring plenty of its own— is just a shockingly more…

    it’s funny to me that this is considered the quintessential Thanksgiving movie basically for the sole merit that it’s one of the only notable Thanksgiving movies— but that’s ok— ‘cause it also just so happens to be a damn good movie! one that I guess I’ve technically watched for years— but only in random bursts over the course of, like, my whole life— so it’s kinda crazy to’ve finally just sat down to watch the whole thing all the way…
