    Bones and All

    ★★★★½

    If you wanted to see Raw as a road trip romance with Timothée Chalamet, Luca Guadagnino has you covered. Bones and All blends the meandering tenderness of Call Me by Your Name with the grotesqueness of Suspiria to create a beautifully twisted painting of innocence shattering and love piecing it back together. There are two notable moments in here that are so effective and shocking, and an ending in true Guadagnino fashion that moved me to tears. This one’s for the sickos, the forgotten, and the scarred, but it’s also for the romantics (if you can stomach it).

    ★★★★

    A dazzlingly eclectic albeit (unsurprisingly) shallow odyssey of one of the most beloved performers of all time. Expect the Baz Luhrmann special - aggressively frenetic editing and a flashy stylistic choice made whenever possible (one man’s trash - I loved it). Some sequences in here are absolutely bonkers and intoxicating, full on goosebumps for five minutes, partially from Baz but ultimately because Austin Butler gives an Oscar-worthy performance that you swear is the real thing in certain moments. The highs are high, but the lows will really sober you up. This doesn’t even scratch the surface of what there is to say but video soon!

    Video here!!🎄
    Maybe the most I’ve seen a crowd laugh this year? With a healthy dose of “oh shit”. Completely delivers on being vulgar and violent, with of course some Die Hard and Home Alone tributes, but big Nobody energy too. It doesn’t deliver on being 90 minutes though, and if you’re gonna take time away from David Harbour bashing people’s heads in, the subplot better be some damn good cinema (spoiler alert: it’s not). I had a good time. I’ll probably show it to my dad.

    Personally, i would have simply not climbed to the top of the 2,000 foot tower with a sign that says “NO TRESPASSING DANGER OF DEATH” without alerting anyone to where i was. That’s just me tho

  • Bullet Train

    Bullet Train

    ★★★½

    You know what, it’s an original, ambitious action comedy that has VERY consistent tone and pacing, actual themes (i mean, they’re definitely there), looks good, has tight action, occasional early Guy Ritchie vibes, and an excellent cast who all came to play. Is it kind of a mess? Yes. Do the jokes always land? God no. Was I getting sick of Brad Pitt’s character? A little! Did I learn too much Thomas the Tank Engine lore? Maybe! But god dammit…
