    John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City

    ★★

    John Mulaney proves he is a one hit wonder with this Radio City special where he continues to fumble his way through jokes and use the same jokes from New in Town

    Sorry y'all

    4/10

  • The Matrix Revolutions

    The Matrix Revolutions

    ★★

    The Matrix Revolutions caps the trilogy with a major misfire. This films what seems to be a final culmination of what we already know about the series, makes a complete 180. With lousy visuals and terrible writing along with uninteresting characters make this movie completely ruin what made the first two great. This film is a soulless sequel and loses its heart and style what the first two achieved.

    Hey at least it had a cool ending!

  • Yesterday

    Yesterday

    ★★

    I was looking forward to "Yesterday", I really was due to my love of The Beatles, but, this is probably my most disappointing of 2019 so far. It is just a bland uninteresting Richard Curtis film. I don't love Richard Curtis' scripts like Love Actually so this effort didn't help. The concept is clever and could work but then they extend the whole, "What if The Beatles didn't exist?" idea into more musicians and brands and I thought it was…

  • Child's Play

    Child's Play

    ★★

    Childs Play 2019 (seriously why did they name it this) was bad but that's not to say it wasn't funny. The acting and writing were abysmal but in a funny way, especially Mark Hamil who repeated the same lines at times! The cinematography felt like the same we have seen recently. There is a subplot with Andy's friends that was unnecessary. The score was alright, some tracks were reptative. The editing was so fast. But the one thing that kept…

  • The DUFF

    The DUFF

    ★★

    I remember when I genuinely wanted to see this.

    Well here we are

  • Hot Summer Nights

    Hot Summer Nights

    ★★

    Hot Summer Nights is the new A24 film and stars Timotheé Chalamet (my mcm) Maika Monroe and tells the story Daniel as he moves into a new town and then starts to get caught in drug dealing. I want get the good things before the bad. I liked Timotheé Chalamet's performance I think he did a very fine job for what he was given. I like the cinematography and liked the 80s vibe to it. And I laughed here and…

  • Death Note

    Death Note

    ★★

    So Death Note is a movie now, and we can't just have nice things in this world. Look, I'm a fan of the original source material and it was a great anime and is the best out there. But, if your a fan if the anime you will be sorely mistaken as this is a another boring made adaptation. So in the anime, Light Yagami is a smart kid and one day a book known as the Death Note falls…

  • The Dark Tower

    The Dark Tower

    ★★

    The Dark Tower is a very great series by author Stephen King and follows Roland the Gunslinger who is on a quest to find the Man in Black and the secrets in the dark tower. What I liked about this series is that it had every one of Stephne Kings characters spanning over the course of 8 books. When I heard they were making a film adaptation I was a little nervous. But, I wish I can say the opposite…

  • Blair Witch

    Blair Witch

    ★★

    Blair witch is the sequel to The Blair Witch project which at Comic Con 2016 was called the woods but then changed it. This tells the story of Ashley finding the lost tape of her sister and wants to find her in the woods. Ok I don't know how this got a 100% on rotten tomatoes for a while but this was bad. The acting was ok it made my laugh a few times but the jump scares where the…
