I worship Steven Spielberg.
As a massive fan of Clint Eastwood, I was very excited in checking out Cry Macho. First and foremost it's incredibly impressive that at 91 years old, Clint was able to both direct AND star in a film of this caliber. Cry Macho is certainly far from his best film, but if his last starring vehicle, The Mule, was more of a cynical reflection piece, Cry Macho is the opposite. I was so surprised by just how endearing and sweet…
Malignant is so absolutely insane that it's hard to believe that a major studio like Warner Bros was behind this, but I love that fact! James Wan really goes for broke here and makes some bold moves with a third act twist that's either going to completely repulse people or make them fall madly in love with the film. There's so much campiness here, all of the performances here feel hammy as hell and it's clear that they know exactly…
Naked isn't good, but it's a hell lot better than what I thought it'd be. It's not funny, it's lazy, and at only 90 minutes the film feels like it's 3 hours long. Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall do give it a lot of effort though, so there's that and there's some actual genuinely sweet moments during the film. Better than a lot of the comedies from Netflix.

Quirky, relatable, hilarious at times, and heartbreaking; Me and Earl and the Dying Girl stands out from all the other "Young Adult" films and becomes it's own thing.
All the performance are excellent, especially from it's three leads Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, and RJ Cyler. All three have excellent chemistry with each other, which helps ignite the film's emotion. Nick Offerman and John Bernthal also turn in exceptional performances.
