    The Goldfinch

    ★★

    Roger Deakins’ cinematography livens up the movie, and there are a few dramatic scenes that accentuate what the movie was going for that I enjoyed. Oaks Fegley and Finn Wolfhard (cartoonish Russian accent aside), do bring a real chemistry as well. 

    Everything else is so dull, blowsy, and bloated that the makes the movie as a whole a drag to sit through. The plot and script seem so inconsistent, and spends way too much time place setting. It takes well…

  • Ready or Not

    Ready or Not

    ★★★★½

    An intricately plotted, richly designed, quickly witted, blood-splattering horror movie. 

    Ready or Not tends to sag towards the middle, but is a still highly entertaining thrill ride, with a smart script, some of the best set designs this year, sharp humor to contrast the gutterall horror, and game performances from a smashing ensemble. A hidden major studio gem that you won’t want to miss out on.


    Plus, it’s the send up on rich people that’ll leave you with an evil grin on your face you won’t want to wipe off.

    Isn't It Romantic

    ★★★

    I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would.

  • The Art of Self-Defense

    The Art of Self-Defense

    ★★★★½

    A pitch black, unpredictable (for the most part), violent, hysterical, and one of a kind look at the state toxic masculinity from a first time writer-director Riley Stearns. With an explosive script, top-notch performances, and a brisk run time.

    One of the darkest, boldest, and unforgettable movies I’ve seen in quite some time.
