  • The Gentlemen

    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 an invitation to its members. I do wish I was…

    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…

  • Project Power

    Project Power

    ★★★

    Project Power takes place in New Orleans where a pill grants someone a diverse assortment of temporary superhero powers for five minutes, while also accepting a risk that it can cause permanent damage or destruction.

    And while it's a fun premise, I am glad there was time spent developing the characters. Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (rocking a Steve Gleason uniform!) are both so likable in their roles, but someone who deserves tons of credit is Dominique Fishback. Her performance…

  • The Shallows

    The Shallows

    ★★

    The Shallows is about a surfer on a secluded beach where she faces her most uphill battle yet. It's not a wave, but a great white shark that is ready to feast.

    Blake Lively's performance is alright, but did her character continuously have to provide commentary for how she's feeling or thinking as opposed to more subtlely?

    And while it's a nice looking film in regards to its cinematography, there are some questionable visual choices in regards to CGI, specifically…

  • Fantasy Island

    Fantasy Island

    ½

    I wish I were able to go to Fantasy Island and be granted a fantasy to erase this movie from its existence.

    Based on an ABC television show that aired back in 1977, the same team behind Blumhouse's Truth or Dare tarnishes its legacy by constructing not only possibly the worst movie of the year, but the worst movie of all time. It's almost like this movie was made so that the cast and crew can get paid vacation time…

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★½

    Listen, this is more of a preface, but your enjoyment level with The Invisible Man will depend on whether or not you accept the premise. If you were a wealthy, tech mogul with the capability to make yourself invisible, would you spend all your time haunting your ex-girlfriend? Think of all the other different avenues one could do with such power.

    The reason I bring this up is that there are many elements that go against logic, and the more…
