    My Darling Vivian

    ★★

    Once Riddlehoover finds the movie’s groove, Vivian’s story carries a rather profound sense of sadness. It’s easy to empathize with her as the four daughters recount Vivian’s struggles in raising not four children, but also tending to a practically oversized home and dealing with the physical and psychological aspects of celebrity that come with being the wife of Johnny Cash – all single-handedly, of course, as Cash was on tour for months at a time. At a point, we’re informed…

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★

    Whether it be superheroes, kaiju monsters, or paranormal investigators, the interconnected series of cinematic adventures have come to define the landscape of the modern blockbuster, but the idea of a “cinematic universe” has existed almost as long as the motion picture itself. As early as 1925, Universal was planting seeds for a cohesive universe of characters in the form of their “Universal Classic Monsters,” not only bringing literary horrors such as Count Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster to the silver screen…

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★★½

    Dad movies rock. I wish I had a son so we could sit down and watch this and have a blast together. Didn't know anything about this story and it engrossed me so heavily that I felt some tears during that ending. A+ racing sequences. Love it.

  • The Tragedy of Macbeth

    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★

    Whatever nuances lie within Shakespeare's writing continue to be lost on me because early English is too much for my pea brain to handle, but this goes hard. One of the most visually striking films of the year; Coen and Delbonnel nailed an eerie atmosphere that rides the uncanny line between stage and screen, and effectively aids the story of madness and paranoia. I wish McDormand had a bigger presence, but Denzel more than carries this one on his own - Kathryn Hunter nearly steals the show though.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★½

    Remarkably intelligent and undeniably ambitious, Christopher Nolan finds the perfect balance of space thrills and human emotion in the truly brilliant Interstellar.

    Ready Player One

    ★★★★½

    Ok so I recognize that this narrative is quite flawed, but dammit this is the Spielberg I've been waiting for for so long. This is the Spielberg I grew up on, the Spielberg that introduced me to film in my childhood and the one that cemented my love for it. Yes, the references are fun, and there's one in the second act that made me cry so much I had tears streaming down my face and had to try to…
