    Pieces of a Woman

    ★★★½

    Finally caught up with this Oscar nominated movie i missed last year. I feel like I did not ever here anyone really talk about Pieces of a Women during Oscar season. Now i know why. Not because it is bad but because it is harrowing.

    Vanessa and Shia are both so good. They are so alive in every scene. 

    The apple metaphor thing seemed a little screenwriting 101 to me.

    Four Christmases

    ★★★½

    Somehow missed Four Christmas’s until now. Cheesy but great classic set up. Vince and Reese are incredible, the rest of the cast is good but one note (what can you expect) Also loved that they had a Oscar Winner in all 4 houses.

    ★★★★★

    I think my second favorite Tarantino after Bastards. Once Upton a Time in Hollywood is the funniest and humane of his movies. No one knows how to use actors like him.

    Hacksaw Ridge

    ★★

    Hacksaw Ridge is an old-school hollywood hamfest in all the worst ways. The first half in particular is laughably bad with Andrew Garfield doing his best Gump impression. Gibson always makes his protagonists simpletons who like throw rocks at girls heads until war turns them into MEN. Vince Vaughn shows up at boot camp and fails at the classic movie drill instructor. The second half is uplifting if you do not think to much about how the Japanese are being portrayed. If it was not for the ridiculously well shot graphic violence you could convince me I saw this movie in 1994 at sunday school.
