    Hillbilly Elegy

    ½

    I'm way too tired to explain why this is such a colossal piece of shit, so you'll just have to take my word for it. A film that no one deserves to sit through and I hope I'm the last person to ever watch this. Has a few funny moments but is mostly just a chore. Avoid at all costs, trust me.

  • Zodiac

    Zodiac

    ★★★★

    Zodiac is one of the best crime dramas I've seen in awhile. For a film that is nearly three hours, I didn't once feel the runtime and had my eyes glued to the screen from beginning to end. The casting here is just incredible and I couldn't ask for better performances. The cinematography is unsurprisingly great. I mean we are talking about Fincher here, the dude is known as a perfectionist. He is known for having more takes than any…

  • Naked

    Naked

    ★★★★★

    This is probably going to be one of my more messier reviews, but not my fault this is such a masterpiece. How do you put pure madness into words because I'm really trying? Naked is a film that will have audiences split on how to feel and personally, I'm left speechless. This is one of the most interesting films and is perfect for people that like analyzing movies because oh boy, there's a lot to unpack here. This is such…

  • Tower

    Tower

    ★★★½

    Tower is one of the most unique documentaries about an absolutely devastating event. This film combines many stylistic choices to make for a very original experience. The film is basically about what people had to go through one day when a sniper was shooting down people from a tower on a college campus. What makes Tower so interesting other than its stylistic choices, is the fact that the film never focuses on the sniper. We don't know who he is…

  • Last and First Men

    Last and First Men

    ★★★½

    Last and First Men is full of beautiful and out of this world cinematography accompiaed with a fantastical score that is nothing, but astonishing. This is all layered with a wonderful vocal performance from Tilda Swinton, which proves that she can really achieve anything. The thing that holds me back from really loving this is that it didn't really leave an impact on me. It doesn't seem to have any deeper meaning and is really just gorgeous visuals. This means…

  • Easy A

    Easy A

    ★★★

    Easy A on the surface looks like another generic high school film, but it's not. It is nothing extraordinary, but there is more to it than just being a comedy you watch and forget about the next day. The thing I was most impressed by was the cinematography and the themes of the story. I have seen this film before, but it has been a while so I didn't really remember how well executed these aspects are. Right off the…

  • Up in the Air

    Up in the Air

    ★★★★

    Whatever you have heard about Up in the Air or seen, forget it. Ignore the posters, taglines, trailers, any of that because it is all bullshit. This film is sold as another basic rom-com when in reality, it is anything but that. Does Up in the Air deal with themes of romance? Yes, but that doesn't make it a romance. This is a film that deals with many themes, like age, love, commitment, power, and morality. Do you still think…

  • Tangerine

    Tangerine

    ★★★½

    Tangerine is one of the greatest comedies I have seen in a while. It might not be one of the best in terms of quality, but when it comes to enjoyment this is a film that'll give you a big grin for most of its duration. This is such a bizarre film and I doubt you can mention anything like it. The film was shot on iPhone 5s, most of the cast is made up of people that haven't acted,…

  • Slumdog Millionaire

    Slumdog Millionaire

    ★★★★

    With Slumdog Millionaire, Danny Boyle makes something fresh and bold. This film got 8 Oscars, with one of those being Best Picture, which is kind of shocking for the academy. Obviously, I don't think this is the best film of 2008, since my favorite film came out that year, but it is nice to see something so bizarre and new win Best Picture. Slumdog Millionaire isn't a film for everybody, but I absolutely loved it! This is a film heavily…

  • If Anything Happens I Love You

    If Anything Happens I Love You

    It is very impressive what this short is able to achieve without any dialogue. This film relies on only visuals and it is still a heavy gut punch. It was also probably the best way to handle this topic without getting too insensitive. My only problem though is when they show the incident. You don't actually see it, but you hear it and I also really disliked the use of the short's title. It isn't a major issue because I…

    asdfmovie12

    I'm not naming any names, but people that give this a half start or anything that low are so overdramatic. This is a free skit series on YouTube that isn't trying to be masterful, so what are you getting so butthurt about. I understand that people don't find this funny because random humor isn't for everyone, but that doesn't make this bad. Some of the random jokes are clever and others aren't throughout the series, but why complain. If you…

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Such an atrocious movie, but that's why I loved it. Every aspect is so baffling and the direction is just embarrassing. At the least, I did enjoy the score here and there, but that's really my only positive. Thankfully, this film too stupid to not enjoy.
