    Love Paul McCartney EXCEPT when he ruins his old songs with the 80s (though some of the new songs here were actually decent thanks to David Gilmour and Eric Stewart).

    The Beatles: Get Back

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Made for hardcore Beatles fans, this was easily the best experience I’ve had with a documentary. With Paul McCartney bring my favorite artist as the best musician of all time, it was more than enjoyable to see him help bring together the band towards the end. This definitely helps rewrite the legend and myths of the band as not only who contributed the most, but also what led to their downfall. Compared to the original, the quality and music makes…

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    The only redeeming quality of this film is Tony Leung, as his performance and character felt more powerful and engaging than anything else in the film. From the intro of the film with Leung and the exploration of his character, that potential was quickly diminished consistently by the rest of the film. Overall, besides this it felt like a typical CGI Marvel film lacking anything unique which is very disappointing for the world of potential it initially had (similar to how Iron Fist was).

    4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    One of the heaviest films I’ve seen, yet still incredible in every way. The anxiety inducing sequences of claustrophobic long takes helps bring this insanely brutal narrative to another level of engagement. Extremely realistic, well acted, and uses many key visual techniques. These come together along with the narrative elements to overall create a sense of unknown if what’s to come in the viewer’s perception of events in the film.

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    The original Blow-Out. Creative and unique in its direction of depicting 60s culture. The Yardbirds sequence is definitely a standout in displaying this, though the symbolism of the larger narrative also does so effectively. The ending also has the incredible imaginary tennis game that so accurate it’s scary. Overall an interesting film and character study of 60s youth culture.

    Overall solid in creating an engaging narratively of mostly one takes. Constantly had a sense of realism in feeling every detail of the various characters, all revolving around chaotic circumstances of progression through the night. Enjoyable with many twists and turns and also extremely comedic despite having a depressing theme.

  • The King of Staten Island

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    The film achieves comedy without feeling cheap or generic. There are a lot of tropes though, but is surprisingly done well with a believable and realistic story. Also, the acting was spot on in many situations as the grounded narrative moved forward. Overall enjoyable, comedic, and at times even emotional.

  • The Paper Will Be Blue

    The Paper Will Be Blue

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Interesting but highlights the boring parts of war with absolutely nothing happening besides dark lighting bad jokes and dialogue that makes absolutely no sense. Also feels pointless after seeing the opening scene.

  • The Meaning of Life

    The Meaning of Life

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Comedic yet doesn’t have too much of a direction when many of the skits have no relation to the theme of the film. Definitely feels repetitive and a bit too unfunny at times in a steady decline of humor and interest from each segment.
