    Fear

    ½

    It’s movies like this that make me question why I continue to watch everything that comes out in theaters. I waste so much time on garbage. 

    I’ve been trying to hate less on people’s films lately too, but sometimes it’s hard not to when they’re this bad 😬

    If the tone wouldn’t have been so dead serious Fear might have been fun enough for at least 1 star.

    Possession

    ★★★★½

    I knew I should’ve watched this sooner.

  • Infinity Pool

    Infinity Pool

    ★★★★

    INFINITY POOL RULES
    1. Never Swim Alone, Only In Doubles
    2. No Peeing Yourself
    3. No Dogs Allowed
    4. Swim At Your Own Risk


    INFINITY POOL is a weird, twisty, and imaginatively fucked film that delightfully rolls around in its own filthy absurdity. 

    Mia Goth commits to such a lively and energetic performance that just keeps on giving as we spiral to the finale. Skarsgård is forced to keep up with her, which is equally entertaining. They’re a lot of…

  • Joyland

    Joyland

    ★★★★

    JOYLAND is an honest and layered film beautifully colored by its impressive and subdued performances and its exceptional cinematography. 

    A certain shift in the story reveals the true intent of the film. I thought it worked well by bringing all its themes together. 

    Joyland is a devastating film about expectations and self-identify (sexuality and gender roles) in a conservative country.

    Highly recommend!

  • The Girl Next Door

    The Girl Next Door

    ★★

    Not particularly well made. Poor script. Dull, cold filmmaking. Way too boring for too long. 

    The disturbing (true story) subject matter is definitely the focus above all else, but that doesn’t mean they had to throw decent filmmaking out the window. It just becomes too exploitative for its own good imo.

  • House Party

    House Party

    I found it kinda painful to watch if I’m being honest. Most of the jokes resulted in zero laughter from the audience (sometimes there was the occasional snicker). This only emphasized how unfunny and uninteresting the film really was. 

    I struggled to stay awake, but I managed to make it through.

    This movie is insane ngl.

    Tell me why I paid real money to watch this and all the f-bombs were edited out and commercial break fade outs were edited in.

  • Good Morning

    Good Morning

    ★★★½

    First Ozu. Incredibly wholesome. Impeccable framing. I enjoyed it. 🥰

    Not really a fart joke kind of guy, but the running gag was endearing enough to win me over.

  • Missing

    Missing

    ★★★½

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

    If you inspect literally any detail of the plot too closely, the whole thing falls apart and topples to the ground - HOWEVER, you and I both know the best way to watch movies is by being willing to suspend your disbelief for a couple of hours. By managing that, Missing has plenty to love. 

    Like most “screenlife” films, Missing is a blast to watch unfold (even if there isn’t much rewatchability). I always have fun with these movies, and…

  • Skinamarink

    Skinamarink

    ★★★★

    Skinamarink tests your patience for sure, but it’s unique in its form which creates such a compelling viewing experience. I find that it rewards the audience’s patience, but I get why people may hate it. 

    Whether you like it or not, it’s cool something like this is playing in theaters and was able to generate the buzz it did. I’m a fan!

  • Saint Omer

    Saint Omer

    ★★★★

    Mesmerizing. I loved the naturalistic style. Everything that needed to be said was said in their silence and their glances. Quietly powerful.

    The sole person in my screening walked out 50 minutes in…so that’s how you know it’s good.

  • Plane

    Plane

    ★★★

    Gonna be generous and give this a 3 for at least being watchable and slightly better than what I expected. Fun in the moment, but I guarantee nothing in this is going to stick with me. At the very least, I think Plane understands its own stupidity.

    The action sequences were also competently executed…at least compared to the usual generic nonsense.
