    A Clockwork Orange

    ★★★

    Even with the endless amount of controversy and hype, nothing can prepare you for A Clockwork Orange. 

    So much more surreal and bizarre than i was expecting. I appreciate the hell out of Kubrick and find the filmmaking on display nothing short of remarkable. 

    Malcolm McDowell gives one of the best performances i think I’ve ever seen. His commitment and sense of character comes through with flying colors. 

    Unfortunately, i wasn’t very impressed with the first hour or so. I…

    Give me a real, genuine reason why you enjoy this that ISN’T the first line i wrote. I’ll wait. 
    The most headache inducing, obnoxiously written, deplorable, sickening thing I’ve ever seen.
    “That’s how life was like for kids like this.” 
    Fuck you, Larry Clark.

    ★★★★

    Gerard Butler plays Big Nick. He eats bloody donuts from crime scenes, drinks Pepto, and does everything in his power to intimidate every single guy who gets in his way. This movie rules.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★★½

    Right next to Mad Max: Fury Road as my favorite action film ever made. Among all the fistfights, knife-fights, gunfights, dog attacks, motorcycle chases, and more... just the story of a man coming to terms with his own mortality.

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    ★★★★★

    A throwback to old school, pulpy crime thrillers. Strangers, all with a secret to bury. Makes for one helluva entertaining ride, with spurts of brutal violence and phenomenal dialogue sequences. Storytelling, performances, visuals, editing; it’s all near flawless. I was waiting for this to make a wrong move, and with a 142 minute runtime, i was expecting it.. not once did it lose me. Captivated from scene one. I’m so goddamn happy.
