  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★★

    I was completely lost for the first twenty minutes (too much mumbo jumbo), but after that I was able to focus and enjoy the movie. It’s a bit predictable/formulaic, and I rolled my eyes at some of the quips, but listen— Brie Larson is a fucking superhero, so I’m a happy camper.

    Also, I love Ben Mendelsohn.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★

    Friends. Romans, countrymen— lend me your ears. I’ve come to apologize. When I first saw this, I was able to overlook the flaws, appreciate the music, and simply enjoy myself. Upon rewatch, the same cannot be said. Bohemian Rhapsody is a shitty movie. 

    As anyone who’s my friend on Snapchat will tell you, I LOVE lip syncing. When Rami Malek is performing on stage, he truly does a good job. That being said, Bradley Cooper (who did not lip sync) deserved that fucking Oscar. The fact that this has four times as many Oscars as A Star is Born is truly baffling.

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    ★★★★½

    Let’s just get this out of the way: I loved Game Night. I had an absolute blast watching this and was laughing 90% of the time (the other 10% was spent fawning over Rachel McAdams, but I’ll get to that). Guess what I also love? Monopoly. That’s not really relevant but it needed to be said.

    The cast is great. Everyone has atleast one great moment. As much as I love Kyle Chandler, the comedic standout of the film is…
