    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★★½

    Some people have been complaining that this film isn't actually about Mr. Rogers. That's right. It isn't. It's about YOU. Yes, you, the viewer. It's about the way you giggle and smirk whenever Fred Rogers talks about something as simple as being kind to one another. Perhaps you think, that's for kids, that's not for me, we have real issues, and there are bigger problems in this world than just being kind. Maybe there are. But solving many of those…

    "Santa Mozzarella!" Pixar continues to be the best. Loved it. They always have an unconventional emotional gut punch in the third act that allows the film to reflect on what's happened so far, while the characters are pushed in new directions. And I always appreciate how much they push things, makes a difference every single time enhancing the complexity and depth of the storytelling. And it's where the emotions really shine, in this one it's a potent reminder of how…

    ★★★★½

    THIS IS DOPE! Feels like the kind of robust, distinct indie filmmaking we don't see much of nowadays. The score is sooo good and adds to every single scene it plays in. Saul Williams kicks ass!! One hell of a film. It has a clear vision, it has style, the story is nice & neat and packs a punch. It's not ashamed to be exactly what it is and stand out from the crowd with the way certain scenes play out. So glad I watched. I think it'll end up earning a cult following in a few years.

    Luca reigns!! OMFG, you guys. OMFG. You have no idea how much this is going to fuck you all up forever.

    I really don't even know where to begin with Suspiria. The Kubrick comparisons I heard beforehand are accurate. There's so much to unpack, and analyze, and discuss. Take your time. We have the rest of this year, and the next few years, to talk about it at length. Just don't miss it. See this film.

    Rocketman

    ★★★★½

    Wooooooooooo Rocketman is the upbeat, sparkly, flamboyant rock musical we've all been waiting for! It's everything that Bohemian Rhapsody should've been, but wasn't. What a banger!! Makes me want to dance and sing ooooh yeahhh.

    This is a vibrantly creative, imaginative, emotional rock biopic that doesn't shy away from being as gay and loud and honest and danceable as it damn well should be. Jamie Bell's performance as Bernie Taupin is as excellent as Taron Egerton as Elton John, both…
