  • The Hateful Eight

    The Hateful Eight

    ★★★★½

    Shame that this is one of Tarantino’s less appreciated films. 

    Sam Jackson should’ve gotten a best actor nom 

    (Watched the miniseries on Netflix)

  • Fruitvale Station

    Fruitvale Station

    ★★★★

    Fuck all that “it’s manipulative” bullshit. That’s what films do. 

    This is wonderful, powerful, and wholly necessary.

  • Like Crazy

    Like Crazy

    ★★★★

    Long distance relationships will leave you in agony 😞

  • Run

    Run

    ★★★½

    Why aren’t more people talking about this?!

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★½

    I have no fucking clue what happened but goddamn was it enjoyable and the sound mixing and choreography was wonderful and it was really nice to be back in a theater again.

    Possibly my least favorite Nolan. Or maybe it’s Dark Knight Rises. Idk this needs a rewatch someday.

  • David Byrne's American Utopia

    David Byrne's American Utopia

    ★★★★½

    Well I had to celebrate the latest news somehow!

  • The Master

    The Master

    ★★★★★

    Y’all ever actually try to imitate the processing scene though?

    Shit’s tough.

  • Boogie Nights

    Boogie Nights

    ★★★★★

    Pretty confident that the “Jessie’s Girl” shootout is my favorite movie scene ever.

  • From Russia with Love

    From Russia with Love

    ★★★★

    Despite growing up playing the GameCube game of this for years, this is my first time seeing Bond’s second outing. I’ve seen Dr. No and Goldfinger, so this had to have slipped through the cracks.

    Anyway, it’s super enjoyable and the set pieces are wildly imaginative and influential. Rest In Peace, Mr. Bond.

  • ParaNorman

    ParaNorman

    ★★★★

    Still holds up.

  • Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    ★★★★

    The first Borat was a cultural phenomenon and a wake-up call to the deep rooted bigotry in American culture.

    Borat 2: Pence Monkey (my abbreviated title) builds upon this foundation and takes it many steps further, with a heavier focus on misinformation, conspiracy theories, and dirty politics at a time in our nation’s history where such issues are in our faces and impossible to ignore. The cringe factor is perhaps even heavier this time around, making this a worthy sequel to one of the 21st century’s most unique and daring films.

  • Batman: The Killing Joke

    Batman: The Killing Joke

    ★★½

    A film that ultimately ends up feeling too broken and misguided for its own good. 

    I appreciate what the writers were going for by including Barbara’s prologue, but there’s a certain connective tissue that lacks between Killing Joke’s two halves. The source material seems to either simply work better on print, or is in the wrong hands.
