    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ½

    This might be one of the worst scripts ever written.
    Sam Raimi deserved better.
    Also Wanda is a bad person. Stop lying to yourselves and remember that when they make her a hero in the next film.

  • The Lost Boys

    The Lost Boys

    ★★★

    People truly are strange

    The Lost Boys is a big meaty slab of 80's nostalgia and since I've lived 20 min away from Santa Cruz it's an absolute sin I haven't seen this movie yet.

    Nothing like some good ol fashioned 80's cringe to get me through the day, the movie deals with Michael and Sam Emerson who after moving to Santa Carla try to fit in best they can until Michael ends up a vampire after trying to kick…

    Pig

    ★★★½

    There's no scene where Nicholas Cage is beating someone with a baseball bat screaming "Where's my fucking pig? Where's my fucking pig?!"

    When Nicholas Cage gets his truffle pig taken from him, he has to go out searching for it.

    Pig is a somber film dedicating it's themes to Empathy, Loss and Mourning which I enjoyed as compared to high octane energy from the John Wick films. Emulating an A24 style without being one of their films the movie has…

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel

    ★★★½

    The Last Duel is the latest Ridley Scott movie centering it's story around the actual novel The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France. Alternatively however this is Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's vision of the event as they were the screenwriters.

    The movie does a well enough of a job explaining the context of the event and how events led to this conflict. That being said the movie simply settles for giving…

    Se7en

    ★★★★★

    Everything about Se7en is perfect. 
    There isn't one scene in the entire movie that feels out of place, there isn't one bad performance, there aren't any bland cliché's, loose ends or cheap thrills. The entire movie earns every ounce of suspense, every shocking moment and every moment of unpleasantness.

    The atmosphere is miserable and sour befitting with the type of world that's illustrated by Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman's character. We never learn which city it's taken place in giving…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    “The movie is entirely tendentious. It’s all planned yet it isn’t thought out.”
    -Jake’s schizophrenic vision of his ideal self


    This is a movie for intellecutals. I am not one of those. I am just a dumb dumb normie watcher of movies. But I will say this with confidence, I am really sick of purely interpretational movies for MaH tHeMeS.

    If you enjoy this movie then good on ya, there are a lot of things in this movie to praise…
