  • The Prestige

    The Prestige

    ★★★★½

    The best part about this isn’t the reveal or the story but the characters which isn’t normally the case in Nolan films but all these characters are so interesting. I have to rewatch this

  • Lost in Translation

    Lost in Translation

    ★★★½

    Lost in translation is exactly what the title is. It is a slow paced heart felt story that feels like it is going to sit well over time. 3.5 stars for now

  • Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★½

    A had high expectations and it still delivered.


    I recommend going in blank and then research afterwards.

  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    ★★★

    This movie definitely made me feel things. It’s slow and boring at times but it’s supposed to be slow. It shows the good in people in a society most do not know. I thought it was good but I’m surprised with how much love it’s getting

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★

    The overall story is an interesting one. There are some parts in the middle that made me feel like this wasn’t going to be as good but it was still good. Rosamund Pike creates another character similar to hers in Gone Girl.


    This was categorized as an LGBTQ and Comedy movie. That seems so wrong if you watch this go into it as a drama but not a hard drama

  • To All the Boys: Always and Forever

    To All the Boys: Always and Forever

    ★★½

    I mean it follows all the typical tropes of a romance and I knew everything that was happening before it happened. What happened to the love triangle they were setting up in the second movie?

  • Possessor

    Possessor

    ★★★

    It has the same confusing feel of vivarium but it was more entertaining

  • Love, Guaranteed

    Love, Guaranteed

    This is exactly what I expected it to be but worse

  • Death of Me

    Death of Me

    ★½

    Goodwill version of midsommar

  • Malcolm & Marie

    Malcolm & Marie

    ★★★½

    This was definitely written to Marie from Malcolm.

    Both characters were acted well, the way each time someone argued made me switch sides was well done.

  • Southpaw

    Southpaw

    ★★½

    It was okay not all the emotional scenes worked for me. A few felt forced but giving a great actor a role of a father trying to be there for his daughter always works for me.

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★½

    This feels like one that’s gonna get better as it sits with you. Riz Ahmed had an amazing performance
