    House of Gucci

    ★★★★½

    House of Gucci is absolute trash and I mean that in the most positive way possible. Ridley Scott, not a director known for restraint, goes even bigger than he's possibly done before. Jared Leto (my least favorite actor to ever live) is a revelation. RIdley Scott is the first to figure what Leto is best at: he can't do cool and he can't do menacing but he can do "pathetic little worm that's nowhere near as smart as he thinks he is." Not since Stanley Kubrick directed Ryan O'Neal has such a great performance come from such an awful actor.

  • The Matrix Revolutions

    The Matrix Revolutions

    After almost twenty years, Revolutions is still one of the most shamefully disappointing movies ever made. Say what you want about Reloaded but at least that had some great action scenes. Revolutions is even dumber and the action scenes are terrible. The sole great moment is Neo and Trinity flying above the clouds and seeing the sunlight for the first time, the first time any human has seen sun in centuries.

    Ant-Man

    ★★★★

    In so many blockbusters today (even the good ones), the stakes are so obscenely high that it's almost impossible to care about them at times. Once you've seen a new city get obliterated every Friday, they all start to blur together. Ant-Man, on the other hand, eschews the city destroying action climaxes of other films and it actually comes off as refreshing. Add in a great and charismatic performance from Paul Rudd, and you've got an entertaining as Hell movie.

    P.S. Hating this movie because it's not directed by Edgar Wright is unfair and idiotic.

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Easily my favorite movie of the year so far. Denis Villeneneuve's direction was great and Amy Adams was amazing. It's my favorite performance from her after The Master.
