    Nope

    ★★★★½

    Nope completely blew past my extremely high expectations. It has the thematic musings of Get Out and Us mixed with the epic scale of a Spielberg flick. Every scene fits perfectly (even the Yeun subplot) into an immensely satisfying rollercoaster ride.

    While I still think Get Out is his best made film, Nope feels like a culmination of Peele's decades long career in Hollywood, as his latest finds a way to blend Peele's auteur side with the impeccable comedic flair he was primarily associated with for so long.

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    With Thor Love And Thunder, Taika Waititi has done the impossible: Make a 200 million film look motion smoothed on the largest screen imaginable. He doesn't stop there either! The latest Thor also features:

    - Russell Crowe going full House of Gucci Jared Leto for his performance of Zeus.
    - Using the most obnoxious shrieks you've ever heard as a reoccurring comedic device.
    - A lightly political narrative (including literal kids in cages) that is constantly undermined by local improv…

    ★★½

    I rather enjoyed the screenplay and how it twists the core concept of A Christmas Carol. However, Spirited lacked much heart, and instead opting for the meta snark that has become par for the course for a Ryan Reynolds movie. Not to mention that the songs were forgettable and the cinematography of the musical numbers were reminiscent of the NBC live musicals each year.

    I loved Tracy Morgan as the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come though!

    Sundance Film Festival 2021: Film 18

    I gotta say that the 'I am a revolutionary' scene is one of the best single sequences I've seen in a long time!

    In just one scene, we see (almost simultaneously) Fred's dedication to the cause, Deborah's worry, Bill's inner turmoil and convincing himself he's a Black Panther, and the looming threat of Roy. This scene sums up the struggles for every major character in the film and it does so with a rageful…

  • Moxie

    Moxie

    ★★★

    One thing's for sure: Patrick Schwarzenegger should definitely play Tom Brady in a biopic. He looks a lot like the famous quarterback, and plays a smug asshole exceptionally well!

    I'm definitely not the target audience for this film, but I still really enjoyed Moxie! I had a bit of an issue with the acting and line delivery, particularly during the first half.

    However, about half way through (The scholarship results), I really got on the wavelength of the film. The…
