    Love, Death & Robots: The Witness

    ★★★★½

    So I just finished binge watching this whole show and I really dug it. The 4.5 rating is mainly just for this episode, The Witness, cause it was my personal favourite, but my ratings for every episode are listed below:

    (Unfortunately Letterboxd only has like 4 of the shorts listed)

    Ep. 1 - Sonnie's Edge: 4.5/5
    Ep. 2 - Three Robots: 3.5/5
    Ep. 3 - The Witness: 4.5/5
    Ep. 4 - Suits: 3.5/5
    Ep. 5 - Sucker of Souls: 3/5…

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★½

    Better than I remember, but still pretty messy. There is a lot I like about this movie though; I like this film's portrayal of Batman (which was later ruined by Justice League ), there's a lot of interesting visuals and the film has a unique style that is very Zack Snyder, Wonder Woman's drop-in towards the end is still great, the action sequences (especially the one with Batman in the warehouse) are mostly well executed, and the score is really good.

    I still don't love this movie, but it's worth giving it another chance if you weren't too crazy about it the first time.

    Somehow this got funnier the second time around? Honestly I haven't seen a film that I loved this much in so long. Beautifully shot and edited, incredibly unique both in terms of its story and its use of sound/soundtrack, and flawlessly acted. How the fuck is this a debut?

    Can't wait to see what Cory Finley does next. Highly recommend checking this one out when it opens near you.

    ★★★★½

    "I'm not a fucking patient!"

    The fact that a 146 minute long horror film, this strange, got picked up for distribution is kind of mind-blowing. The whole film feels like a disjointed combination of Crimson Peak and Shutter Island.

    But I mean "disjointed" in the best way possible. I loved this movie. It may be a little too ambitious for its own good, but it's super entertaining. It's so damn unique, the score is awesome, and the cinematography and production…
