    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    Darius Marder’s SOUND OF METAL is not only a fantastic debut, but also a breathtaking character study about coming to terms with the hand you’ve been dealt. In the case of Ruben Stone (Riz Ahmed in a career best performance), this means learning to cope with his loss of hearing, something most people can’t fathom living without until they are forced to. For Ruben, this is a painful and long journey, and thanks to Marder’s passionate filmmaking, we see his…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    This is one of the most challenging first watches I’ve ever experienced. Unfamiliar with the source material, I went into this completely blind, knowing nothing more than that I was about to embark on another journey led by Charlie Kaufman. What a journey it was!

    This movie drops you into an eerie dreamscape of a dying relationship that gets creepier by the minute. On the surface, this movie seems like a messy and very confusing story that’s certainly unsettling. Once you…

    ★★★★

    Cohen is back on his bull shit, and this time he’s coming to take down the Capitol Hill elite. With new tricks up his sleeve, Cohen is able to recapture most of the magic that made the first movie so successful. While the shock factor doesn’t quite live up to that of its predecessor, this is still just the movie we needed in 2020!


    I wrote a little thing on Borat 2 for our website. You can read it here!

    A very strong debut from Cooper Raiff! This movie has some serious magic to it at times and when it works, it works WELL! The chemistry between the leads is fantastic and the whole film feels incredibly relatable and down to earth. This is certainly one to catch!

    We had Cooper Raiff join us on our podcast so if you’re interested in our conversation, you can find it here!

    Wow. Just wow. 

    This was the only thing I could think throughout this amazing movie. I have never been so blown away by a movie for as long as I can remember. As a film lover, as well as a person with eyes, this movie was just on another level. 

    From a technical standpoint, there is no better movie than this one. The techniques used to actually make and film this movie are unbelievable. There were certain…

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★★★½

    After hearing mixed reviews, I went in unsure of how much I'd like this movie, but shame on me for doubting Marvel. This movie was even better than I expected. Not only was it a great sequel, but it also had a lot of new pieces that really worked. The biggest of which was The Wasp who was a complete bad-ass and a great addition to the Avengers.
    My favorite part of the Ant Man series is the humor, and…
