    ★★★★★

    It was a huge honor getting to see my first Sean Baker film with my friend, Serena, today in theaters! I had passively heard of Tangerine when it came out, but only visited it recently and was deeply distraught when I could not find a theater viewing of The Florida Project when it released and now I finally have seen Red Rocket

    Easily, Mikey Saber, portrayed by Simon Rex, (make sure to Google him, he has 20.1 million views on Pornhub…

    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★½

    So not surprisingly, I think The Matrix Resurrections is the best sequel in the series, but that also doesn’t mean much. This is also a review from a person who loves the lore, mythology, and philosophy of The Matrix and that skews my entire rating of this. I also am not a “sequel revisionist” and have always liked the Matrix sequels, and weirdly Revolutions more than Reloaded. I also really followed a lot of the “why” surrounding making this film and how…

    ★★½

    I did not expect this tone from a John Carpenter film. There are some goofy moments and gags and some odd moments of reflection where nothing really happens. It is never funny enough or interesting enough to keep my attention and does very much feel like the expanded student film it is.

    Really incredibly performances and just a really amazing style with the high-constrast black and white filmmaking, the limited use of color, and the extremely harsh and tight shots. I was really shocked to have only heard of this film recently, especially as it has a Criterion release, but this is easily one of Coppola’s best.

    ★★★★★

    Controversially, my favorite in the series. So much of this film was so brilliant to me. It dipped it’s toes in just about every form of horror and created a commentary on how we consume horror. Something about Scream 2022 is so brutal, so sinister, it felt like it was crawling underneath my skin the whole time. I loved the old cast’s return and all of the new cast, this is easily the best set of characters in a Scream film since…

    ★★★★

    I’m genuinely shocked Michael Bay made this. Exciting, ridiculous action, great chemistry and performances between Connery and Cage, and something lacking from most of other Bay’s films that I have seen, a great story. There is no reason he isn’t making films of this quality consistently.
