    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Watching this made me scared to put my arm around my girlfriend of nearly 3 years.

    The best part was how they gave Cassie hope with this perfect man but when he is given a tape that could give justice to Cassie’s friend but could incriminate him by association he pushes her to not use it to save his ass. It’s cool how there are many times that these characters have a chance to tell the truth and get away with little damage but instead they push to completely save them and in the end they all get caught.

  • Bad Education

    ★★★½

    The most interesting part about this is how well the school did and how many great people came from that school while millions of dollars was being taken from the school

  • Manchester by the Sea

    Manchester by the Sea

    ★★★★★

    This was even better on the rewatch. The direction of this film makes more sense knowing how you want it to end. I love every performance in this movie and it has one of the best scenes in film

  • Django Unchained

    ★★★★

    Tarantino does not follow a typical storyline. Everyone in this plays an amazing role

  • First Man

    First Man

    ★★★½

    Damien Chazelle back at it again with his story about greatness. You can tell the amount of research and love he had for this story in American history. I wish the Chazelle stare happened between Neil and Ed

  • Pieces of a Woman

    Pieces of a Woman

    ★★★½

    This teaches us about a horrible situation and how people who loved each other have to grief in their own ways. This also teaches us a metaphor about an Apple living it’s life.

    ★★★★

    The person Amy wrote herself to be is who she made Nick turn out to be.

  • Johnny Dangerously

    Johnny Dangerously

    ★★★½

    Simple plot but a lot of fun. This film makes itself different than others behind it’s interesting 4th wall breaks. It does more than just look at the camera. I liked how text would appear on the screen and then get ran over like it is actually there.

  • Spider-Man 2

    Spider-Man 2

    ★★★★½

    Continuing the with great power comes with great responsibility quote with a movie that hits hard on the responsibility of being spiderman. 17 years later we still have not had a comic book movie that hits the responsibility of a superhero quite like this one

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    This film is still so damn beautiful

  • Footloose

    Footloose

    ★★★

    I liked the respect the men had for each other. There were some goofy parts like the dancing to cool off steam scene

  • The Master

    The Master

    ★★★★

    Paul Thomas Anderson has an interesting type of film making. He gives his actors plenty of chances to have stand out moments. I respect how great this film is but it did not hit me as it could have. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman deserve the praise they have gotten for their performances.
