    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★★

    This Top Gun legacy sequel is a roaring slice of reverberating, deafening, ear-splitting action that can only be experienced on the largest screen possible. Far exceeds the original in every facet imaginable, upping the stakes, visual mastery, heartwarming emotion, and character depth dramatically. Embraces the ‘80s cheese that had everyone fawning over the first while creating a more modern cinematic experience, complete with jaw-dropping aerial photography, scorching editing, and booming sound design. This is a technically perfect film in every…

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★★

    “I will avenge you father. I will save you mother. I will kill you Fjölnir.”

    A cinematic epic like no other, Robert Eggers’s The Northman is a breathtaking experience. His approach to a revenge story is fresh, bloody, weird and truly awe-inspiring. Brutal, grotesque action is a feat to behold and Eggers’s stylistic tendencies only enhance the rather traditional Shakespearean plot beats. Striking visuals and creative camera movement attract the audience to all corners of the screen just to soak…

    Burn After Reading

    ★★★

    Better on a second watch now that I know what to expect (or what not to expect). Brad Pitt is so hilarious in this film that he basically saves the entire middle section from being far too dull. A GIF-worthy performance if I’ve ever seen one. The extremely low stakes make everything comical and the ending is a belly-laugh.

    “Jesus f***ing Christ.”

    “Yeah.”

    “What did we learn, Palmer?”

    “I don’t know, sir.”

    “I don’t f***ing know either. I guess we learned not to do it again.”

    “Yes, sir.”

    “I’m f***ed if I know what we did.”

    “Yes, sir. It’s, uh… hard to say.”

    ★★

    Understand the affection but this just didn’t do it for me. Was not very invested in the fantasy adventure story and that made it hard to care about the characters inside of it.

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★½

    Edgar Wright’s newest genre subversion comes in his psychological thriller Last Night in Soho. Consistently entertaining through heart-pumping sequences of grand intensity, Wright successfully crafts a unique world that finds his protagonist - played impressively by up-and-coming star Thomasin McKenzie - jumping through time, from present-day London to 1960s Soho, during her dreams until the lines between reality and imagination begin to blur. Vibrant cinematography and lively camera movements are made excellent use of. Drama builds perfectly through about 80…

  • Hard Eight

    Hard Eight

    ★★★★½

    Incredibly impressive debut by future visionary Paul Thomas Anderson. Constantly cloaked by a bleak sense of mystery, the neo-noir story takes its time to develop but remains adequately suspenseful throughout. Phillip Baker Hall evokes coldness and presents an unexciting but measured performance that remains at the forefront in every scene. John C. Reilly and Gwyneth Paltrow chip in with wonderful supporting roles and Anderson exceptionally masks the true nature of his characters until necessary. Outstanding start to an acclaimed career.
