    Cineplex Theatre

    Finally this has released in one theatre about an hour away from me. I really wanted to see that my first experience watching this at it's TIFF premiere with the cast and crew and the ovation after words wasn't just a clouded judgement. Is this truly the best film from 2022?

    For months since September this film has stuck with me. It's really beautifully crafted by Sarah Polley. Her screenplay just hits me with poetic quote after poetic…

    Cineplex Dolby Screening

    It's -38C outside and I'm fighting the weather to get myself to a Cineplex as this is one of my most anticipated films of the year.

    No doubt I been seeing all the backlash for over a month now, even though I tried to avoid most of it but it's hard when you follow socials or subscribe to you-tubers who cover films. So I couldn't help but lower expectations, Damien Chazelle can't hit four in a row,…

    I had more fun with this than I expected mainly because it's funny and pretty smart but it does come off as a well written SNL or Daily Show skit on parenting. Not necessary worth a trip to the cinema as this would be just fine on streaming but if you have time to kill and membership free screening to use, you have a fun time.

    80th Anniversary Edition

    I love getting full restoration in 4K of classic films. In B/W this looks so sharp and its an upgrade from the 70th anniversary because the 4k scanning tech has improved.

    This film really hit me as an adult because I saw this in my teens and thought "ok, Ingrid Bergman is beautiful but what's the big deal" but I saw it again as an adult and it turns out I'm someone who's exactly the Sam and I can say I really get why this film is one of the greatest ever made.

    Just a little background before my review...

    So my last venture into the MCU was Endgame and from that point I thought it would be the best time to drop out of it entirely. Definitely no regrets on that choice. At some point you should realize eating at McDonalds is bad for you and well I have just outgrown this franchise as it really lost me after "Winter Soldier" which was the best film of the franchise…

    That's quite the opening to this drama. However, the "one shot" is having that watered down taste to it now but Vanessa Kirby just owns the camera. Her performance is simply incredible and the centerpiece of this story.

    Director Kornél Mundruczó and his cinematographer captured a solid film. Kata Wéber script is very raw and honest. There's an exchange between Kirby and the amazing Ellen Burstyn that is written perfectly and they both just knock it out of…
