    The Green Knight

    ★★★★½

    I'm going to admit this right up front: I did not know what to think of The Green Knight when it ended. I felt enthralled and beguiled, totally sucked in for the duration of the film, yet when the credits rolled I simply had no clue how, in my heart, I really felt about the experience.

    It's a testament to the magic on screen that I was compelled to watch it all over again just a couple days later, alone…

    Capitalism: The Movie

    A lot of folks compare this to Taxi Driver, and I can't really blame them. Both films focus on someone thriving on the fringes of society, under cover of night, "improving" themselves while moving further away from their connection to humanity. But upon revisiting this fantastic, pitch black gaze into the abyss, I realized that it's also the story of a perfect capitalist.

    Lou Bloom has no pesky morals to get in the way of his rise…

    Malignant

    ★★★

    Malignant is simultaneously stupid and over the top bonkers, yet eminently watchable in a way only James Wan could have managed. He takes a frankly bizarre core concept and has the audacity to play it out to its logical conclusion, big and bold on the screen for everyone to see. It's almost like cosmic horror, where the idea is too otherworldly for us mere mortals to wrap our heads around, until the moment we are actually shown what's been going…

    "One of the things I love about Venice is that it's so safe for me to walk. The sound changes you see, as you come to a canal. And the echoes from the walls are so clear. My sister hates it. She says it's like a.. city in aspic, leftover from a dinner party, and all the guests are dead and gone. It frightens her. Too many shadows. We are almost there..."

    The above dialogue comes from the blind, psychic…

    It Follows

    ★★★½

    Revisiting this movie during Scaretober was a pretty good idea, one my wife and I both shared. Though we hadn't seen It Follows since we lived in our old house, much of the imagery was seared into my mind and it looked and sounded so familiar in a mostly great way. The movie may be short on actual scares, but director David Robert Mitchell certainly knows how to conjure an aura of encroaching doom for its teenage protagonists in their…

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★

    I finally watched The Mitchells vs The Machines with my son and wife and we all had such a great time, especially kiddo. It's just as delightful and heartwarming as everyone's been telling me, particularly friends recommending a great flick to share with my four year old. In fact, I'd say this is on par with or better than anything Pixar has dropped in the last several years. Not surprising, coming from the team who made the incredible Into the…
