DoctorDoom has written 7 reviews for films during 2021.

  • Gunpowder Milkshake

    Gunpowder Milkshake

    Every time I think Netflix movies can't possibly get any worse, they release another one

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    This is the first movie I've watched in two months

    As the resident MCU Black Widow hater, I regret to inform the public that this is actually good. Nobody is more upset about this turn of events than I am

    First half genuinely good to great. Feels committed to subgenre and well thought out from a directorial standpoint. Slides a lot in the back half with some sloppy editing and payoffs but not enough to derail it

    ScarJo is still…

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A flag planted on a barren world.

    I want to start off by saying that I have nothing personal against Zack Snyder. As far as I can tell, he is the real deal: an auteur without an ego, a genuinely nice person, an artist who cares for everyone who works under him. That's a rare thing in the film business, and it's something everyone should be happy about.

    I also have nothing but sympathy for him and his family in…

  • The Gentlemen

    The Gentlemen

    This is the only good movie Guy Ritchie has ever made. Punchy and efficient in a way his work has never been. Could stand to be a lot less racist. Michelle Dockery is hot.

  • Ronin

    Ronin

    This was one of my dad's favourite movies. Whenever it was on TV, he'd always stop whatever he was doing and watch it. Probably seen bits and pieces of this a dozen times over my life. Two hours of dudes rocking, getting into gun fights and car chases. He loved it every time.

    I miss him.

  • Run

    Run

    Great movie. Unpopular opinion apparently but I connected more with this than Searching, which I was already a big fan of. I said at the time that Aneesh Chaganty would be a director to watch, and what do you know? I didn't lie!

    Apparently the Letterboxd crowd is lukewarm on this one. I've seen a lot of reactions that could be summed up as "it's a standard sophomore outing." Although Searching is more visibly proficient and innovative at first glance,…

  • Dragged Across Concrete

    Dragged Across Concrete

    I have no idea why this was my first movie of 2021 but here we are

    Let's call myself a Zahler novice. I should probably rewatch Bone Tomahawk at some point; I did see it once years ago and remember it mostly as "fine." Apparently it's one of the most gruesome movies a lot of people on here have ever seen but I don't recall being as put off by the gore as everyone else. Granted, this also happened to…
