    Coming Home in the Dark

    ★★★★

    “All right. Let’s buckle up.”

    At first I thought they were driving on the wrong side of the road, then I realized I'm just a dumb American 😩

    I've been an admirer of Daniel Gillies for probably a decade now. He's one of those actors whose projects I've mostly thought, respectfully, were just a bit beneath the caliber of the performer. Someone worthy of really juicy, prominent roles, particularly in film.

    Then along came Coming Home in the Dark, the…

    “Fair is foul, and foul is fair. Hover through the fog and filthy air.”

    Oh, I'm gonna rewatch The Tragedy of Macbeth after seeing it less than two weeks ago in theaters, 'cuz that's just how I am.

    The frames, the editing, the costumes, the score, the sets. Ugh. This is filmmaking.

    Denzel was so menacing killing Duncan, it is truly frightful to watch. His chemistry with Frances is off the charts and his conclusion could not have been more…

    The Eyes of Tammy Faye

    ★★★★

    “Serving God don’t feel like it should be a money-making opportunity.”

    Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield went absolutely balls to the wall here and the film is worth a watch for them alone.

    Chastain lights up every scene despite the cartoonish make up and looks. Garfield goes toe-to-toe with great characterization and especially impressive voice work. (and of course was handsome as hell).

    Cherry Jones is memorable as Faye's suspicious mother. I wish someone had written her a juicy monologue…

    “This is elevated horror.”

    I don't want to say too much because I wouldn't want to spoil anyone's fun and I know not everyone can get to a theater right now. So just some highs and a couple of lows for now.

    Highs:

    🔪 I avoided as much information about this film as possible, so I was surprised to see my hometown! A second recent horror hit filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina!

    🔪 Every slasher must have its hots, it's…

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★½

    “Can you guess what every woman’s worst nightmare is?”

    Absolute barnburner of a film, some men are gonna be SO PRESSED LMAO.

    Promising Young Woman is lively, quirky, excruciatingly exposing with countless twists and turns. Director/writer Emerald Fennell punked me an innumerable amount of times. Jaw-dropping, but not overdone, just good storytelling.

    Carey Mulligan does a lot as the complicated and damaged protagonist with an axe to grind. I have only see her as Kitty Bennett in 2005's Pride and Prejudice,…
