  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Bad Education

    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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    ★★★½

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

    This movie hits different know what Chadwick was going through while making it. He has three really emotional scenes, but the one about him talking to god means so much to the film and possible Chadwick’s real feelings

  • Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

    Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

    ★★★½

    I really really liked this when I watched it for the first time. It was slower rewatching it but the story still builds really well into the climax

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar

    ★★★½

    I don’t know what is more interesting. How time is used in this movie or how Matthew’s character represented a father. That line about how once you have kids all you are is just a memory for them hits hard.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★½

    I think the action might have sold me over the story on this one. Isn’t a bad thing but on such a complex story you’d want more wow moments that we didn’t get like in Inception. There wasn’t really any character development either. Overall I can say Christopher Nolan gave me something I have never seen before.

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★½

    It was a weird one but it is really interesting to go deep into the deeper meanings of this story. The feet kissing scene was crazy the more you think about it.
