  • Wonder Woman 1984

    Wonder Woman 1984

    ★★★

    Pretty fun, equal to the first one imo. Nothing really groundbreaking here but nothing that irked me deeply. Perfectly inoffensive and fine.

  • Four Brothers

    Four Brothers

    ★★★

    Mark Whalberg says the N word.

  • Sucker Punch

    Sucker Punch

    ★★★

    Edgelord as fuck but the cinematography is fresh ig.

  • Fright Night

    Fright Night

    ★★★

    Pretty damn fun. Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin are fucking great, the action is pretty fun as well. However, the really dated 2011 CGI looks god awful now, especially in the end, overall however, good time.

  • The Green Hornet

    The Green Hornet

    ★★★

    Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, granted I have a soft spot for seth Rogen comedies. This feels like a toned down R-Rated movie, so in a parallel universe, 12 year olds are praising this and not deadpool.

  • The Lovebirds

    The Lovebirds

    ★★★

    While not as good as the big sick, still a fun enough time. Kumail and Issa kill it. That’s all.

  • Capone

    Capone

    ★★★

    Will probably one of the few people who dug this. While not without flaws, it is a very interesting character study and take on the gangster genre. This will definitely have a cult following, I can feel it.

  • Extraction

    Extraction

    ★★★

    While it is great value the raid, it is still a damn fine balls to the wall action movie that only gives you moments to breathe. The action is fucking great (especially that long take), everything else I can live without.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★★

    Pretty fun. First 10 minutes have a bit too much CGI for my liking (like holy fuck that fake torso looked like shit), other than that incredibly solid. Hope universal rereleases this so I can see it in theaters (but that most likely won't happen).

  • Ford v Ferrari

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★★

    Probably my least favorite favorite best picture nominee this year. Very bland and boring up until the end of third act.
