    Black Widow

    Delivered exactly what I hoped for! Really enjoyed it, Florence Pugh and David Harbor in particular. Was shocked at how funny I found it and how much some of the more emotional scenes moved me. I enjoyed how self-contained and personal the story felt too. Probably upper-tier Marvel for me. Only thing I wasn’t crazy about were the Russian accents and the incredibly dark tone established at the beginning that is never really followed through on. Truly loved the “The Americans” opening sequence, but the tone established by the nirvana cover opening credits ended up feeling super out of place right away.

    This movie was such a disappointment. An incredible concept, a few truly disturbing sequences and some fucking killer cast members are let down at. every. single. turn. by an abysmal screenplay. That’s really it for me. I think everything I disliked about this movie stems from the dumb character and story choices and the clunky, stiff writing. The potential here in the overall concept, themes that were explored and cast was immense but it either just didn’t land for me…

  • The Kid Detective

    The Kid Detective

    Yeah I reaaaaaally dug this one. Another plane watch on the way back from Maui!

    Dry and deadpan delivery of this most clever ideas and gags. A genuinely great mystery that had me stumped right up until the big reveal. After seeing Adam Brody in Ready or Not, I have been wanting to see him come back in a big way. Give him more weird, genre shit. He’s so good.

    Watched on the plane and forgot to record it. Super fun! Seeing Bob Odenkirk get this badass dad treatment was wonderful.

    Dave Chen really wasn’t joking, this movie fucking rips.

  • No Sudden Move

    No Sudden Move

    While I thought this was pretty good, it ended up still being a huge let down. Probably one of my most anticipated movies of the year, I had built this one up in my head too much, allowing the talent behind it to really set my expectations in too high and specific of a realm.

    First 40min-1hr were incredible. Had me hooked immediately and was delivering on all levels, then suddenly this film just slams on its breaks. It starts…

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    I AM TIRED OF SEEING DJIMON HOUNSOU BEING TREATED THIS WAY.

    This didn’t do much for me. Tense at times, fun to watch back in a theatre, but just felt flat and empty overall. The events and emotions of this movie felt rushed and inconsequential. No time to breathe with any of it, and not in a clever and effective way. Idk, don’t have super concrete thoughts atm, just real bummed about this one. Glad to see a lot of…

    Very nice, real cheesy. Made me feel warm and fuzzy though!

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    Really, really enjoyed it. Not everything about it worked for me, least of which the very meme/internet style visual humor. But despite that, I thought both the writing and the slapstick sides of the comedy were hysterical. Super entertaining, hilarious, touching. Great stuff.

    Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train

    I can’t believe I was back in a theatre again. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay. I really enjoyed this! However, I much rather would have seen the Mugen Train story just play out as its own arc in the show rather than as a movie. Since it is the connective tissue between seasons, they really treated it like the anime still. The structure and overall pacing did not feel fit to the feature film format in my opinion, so there were many points…

  • Only Yesterday

    Only Yesterday

    This movie is beautiful. It is beautiful to look at, to think about. It is beautiful to watch and simply experience. Takahata is a master at cutting to and laying out the very soul of his stories.

    There is a specificity and warmth here, even when depicting the embarrassing, traumatizing and awkward memories, that feels so real. It so accurately captures the experience of being a child, as well as what it feels like to acknowledge how those experiences made…

    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

    The extended edition for Return of the King is, without a doubt, the more fun version to watch for me. It is the version I prefer and I had made that determination for myself before it was even over. I had such an amazing time watching this last night. And now my first ever watch of the extended trilogy js over.

    I can’t BELIEVE what was left on the cutting room floor. There are moments in the extended edition that…
