  • Climax

    Climax

    ★★★★

    You know the scene in Get Out where Daniel Kaluuya stares ahead, completely hypnotized, with wide eyes and tears streaming down his face?

    Yeah, that was me throughout this entire movie, and it will probably be you too.

  • John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★★

    I will NEVER grow tired of watching Keanu annihilate everyone in his path with whatever weapon/object is nearby.

    What the third chapter lacks in story, it makes up for with some of the best action sequences the series has to offer.  In fact, this movie has quite a different feel from its predecessors in its action and story, but it’s still very much John Wick.  The world-building continues to impress me with great new characters and deeper exploration of this…

  • Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    ★★½

    As a movie, it’s fine.  As a video game adaptation, it’s pretty good, and a big step in the right direction.

    One thing I can wholeheartedly praise is the visual style/cinematography—everyone knows by now that this was shot on film, and it certainly shows.  Really pleasing to the eye!

  • Barton Fink

    Barton Fink

    ★★★★½

    I don’t really know what to say about Barton Fink, at least not right now while I’m still thinking on it.  All I know is that this movie floored me and I can’t exactly describe why.  The straightforward plot and strong acting coupled with the aura of surrealism gives it an almost hypnotic quality.  Definitely a film that won’t leave my head for a while.

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★½

    I was going to come up with a joke to put in this review, but then Aquaman emerged from the ocean onto the sands of the Sahara Desert in slow-motion, Baywatch-style, while Pitbull’s cover of “Africa” by Toto blasted in the background.

    So there’s my joke.

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    Sorry to Bother You, Blindspotting, and now BlacKkKlansman.

    They make up the 2018 trifecta of unorthodox political movies that “America needs right now.”

    If only the people who need to see them would actually watch them.
