    Jurassic World

    ★★½

    "Your writers were so preoccupied with whether or not they could make another Jurassic Park sequel that they didn't stop to think if they should"

    Four credited screen writers and it feels like it with a perfect example of someone watching a great movie and taking all the wrong pieces from it for a sequel.
    Jurassic Park was about the hubris of man and how playing God will only result in the downfall of those arrogant enough to try and…

    Are you watching closely?

    My favorite Nolan film and probably in my top 5 of all time mostly because I saw this at both the perfect age and also the perfect time in my movie watching life.
    I had only just started expanding my horizons beyond childhood favorites like Raiders, Empire and The Princess Bride but hadn't really been exposed to many films that were all that unconventional.
    My mom picked this for a family movie night and as soon…

    ★★½

    I too would like to have enough money to purchase an off grid cabin and a bunch of land so I didn't have to see people anymore.
    There's nothing wrong with this per se, it just feels like it was written by bots.
    Woman with trauma in her past moves to remote cabin to get away from everyone who knows her and deals with being slightly unprepared for the extremes, has to hide in an outhouse during a bear attack,…

    ★★★

    Almost more Hitchcockian than Langian this noir/thriller set in war time England had a great set up and built the intriguing mystery piece by piece with excellent camerawork that conveyed so much with so little like a train companion who isn't who he appears, a beauty of a seance or a literal shot through a door.
    Ray Milland's Stephen Neale is in a wrong man situation after he gets released from an asylum after a two year stint and visits…

    ★★★

    Nolan: I'm going to make an incredibly complex film about reverse entropy, the future sending technology back in time, temporal pincers and a secret mysterious group that requires a lot of thinking to try and make sense of these very difficult concepts.

    Also Nolan: "Don't try to understand it, feel it"

    Ever wonder what Primer would look like with a $200,000,000 budget?

    This is the best and worst of Christopher Nolan exemplified in one film.
    Great spectacle, beautifully filmed, grand…

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★

    “He did that, but that ain’t all he did"

    Sometimes a film will come along and remind us that no matter how much progress we think we've made, we still haven't moved that far forward and we need only look to the past to show how little actual positive change has happened at a systemic level in how Black Americans are treated and thought of in this country.
    This is one of those movies and the parallels it drew from…
