    Jacknife

    ★★★

    I see the Deer Hunter references that a lot of other reviewers have made. The Deer Hunter was an epic, showing the lives of boys before the trauma of war and then how it changed them.

    The scope of Jacknife is much smaller. Contained to only 2 men with limited knowledge of what they were before the war to see the vast contrast in character. This makes it harder to really be drawn to these characters as you only see the bare bones…

    The Holdovers

    ★★★★

    The nostalgic style of this movie is impeccable. I felt like I was watching a movie set in the 60s that actually came out in the 60s. All the way from the title cards to the credits

    Paul Giamatti is phenomenal and fully deserves that Oscar nomination.

    No. Anyone who has seen Christmas Under Wraps knows that this is just dumb.

    Just a fun, nonsensical movie. It’s always fun to see stars before they become big
