    The Gentlemen

    ★★★★

    Attended the NYC premiere of The Gentlemen at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Downtown Brooklyn tonight, followed by a live Q&A with writer/director Guy Ritchie and select members of the cast - Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Dockery, Charlie Hunnam, Hugh Grant, and Henry Golding (pictured).

    (Yes, I was devastated that Jeremy Strong didn’t make an appearance.) 

    It was a fun experience, and I am glad Letterboxd partnered up with STX to offer its members an invitation. I do wish I was more…

    1917

    ★★★★½

    Let’s rewind to October 4th, 2019

    I’m a recent college graduate working my first full-time job in New York City. Of course, when you work in a major city, you get opportunities to attend all sorts of events. It happened to be the week of New York Comic-Con, and I figured since I’ve never been to any convention before, I’ll try to sign up and get tickets. Well, I didn’t know you had to sign up months in advance, but…

    You People

    ★★

    You People don't understand how tired I am of disposable comedies on Netflix.

    The premise is not original in the slightest; basically, a modern spin of Meet the Parents (2000), where its conflict and attempts at humor center on the cultural divide between races. And for such a talented ensemble cast, headlined by Eddie Murphy, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Jonah Hill (who co-wrote the screenplay), it felt like a wasted opportunity.

    The social commentary is intentionally awkward and cringeworthy in its…

    After Last Season

    ½

    I was about one-third into After Last Season that I decided to open the Letterboxd app and rate this half a star; I am being genuine when I say this is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

    According to an interview from Filmmaker Magazine, the production budget was originally in the range of $30K-$40K until the visual effects elevated it to $5M.

    Do you mean these effects (example one, example two, example three) cost millions of dollars?…

    G.I. Jane

    ★★½

    Did I watch G.I. Jane solely because Chris Rock referred to it in his joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's alopecia condition, resulting in Will Smith walking on stage and slapping him in the face during last night's live broadcast of the Oscar's?

    Yes.

    While Ridley Scott intended to display the brutalities and intensities of preparation for war, that alone isn't enough to carry a film when the character work is lackluster, let alone with a two-hour runtime. Mix in political,…

    Fear Street: 1666

    ★★½

    If you're a fan of its two predecessors, chances are you will find enjoyment in Fear Street Part Three: 1666, but for me, it's more of the same, a bunch of mediocrity.

    As the title suggests, around a little over half the runtime is spent in the year 1666, and to put it bluntly, it was rather dull. But to be fair, it's very challenging to make period horrors engaging.

    I get it's a vision, of sorts, but it was…
