    ★★★★½

    The cinematic language of this movie makes you feel so uncomfortable and alien, and that's intensely my shit. Can't fucking wait to see Uncut Gems.

  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    yeah, it's still a good movie.

  • Jackie Brown

    ★★★★½

    It's as I suspected. This is easily Tarantino's best movie, and it's a movie that just doesn't skip a fucking beat. It's tight and concise, it's two and half hour runtime flys by, it's a movie that knows what it is and what it's about.

    It's contemporary setting stands outs, and I really wish QT's next movie is set in the hear and now. There's something to be said about "the setting being a character", but for me, movies set…

  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    I can't help but love this movie. Its deliberate slice of life pacing, the way golden age television shows and movies are integrated into it's visual palatte, the deeply textured landscape of late 60s LA... I honestly just didn't want the movie to ever end, and when it did, hot damn did it end.

    I need to see it again (I can't wait to see it again) but this is easily top three Tarantino for me. For once it felt…

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★½

    The screenplay for this movie is 10/10.
    The editing and cinematography is so fucking cool.
    Spike Lee's direction is almost unbelievably tight, only helped by a terrific cast of main and supporting characters, each used effectively and to their narrative fullest.
    This is certainly the best movie of last year, and one of the best of the 2010s.
    It rules.

  • Being John Malkovich

    Being John Malkovich

    ★★★★½

    Well, I guess Charlie Kauffman is intensely my shit. This movie is so funny, and while not as soul scrambling as the other Kauffman movie I saw last week, it's maybe a better A to B narrative overall.

    Also, Catherine Keener.

    Good movie.

  • Doubt

    Doubt

    ★★★★½

    A couple of things:

    Cinematography: hot damn does Deakins outdo himself in this one. This movie has a very distinct 1960s look to it's shot composition and color grading, and since I don't know shit from shinola when it comes to aspect ratios and perspectives all I can say is "man make movie look good". If you didn't know who any of the actors in this movie are, and you walked in completely blind, you'd probably swear you saw the…

  • The Master

    The Master

    ★★★★½

    Took me awhile to finally get to this one, and I don't know what else I can add to a discussion that's done and over with besides the confirmation that: yeah, it's pretty good.

    I'm a fan of all parties involved, and what's delivered is an effective, tense, and sadly touching portrait of American ideals and the waste they leave behind in their wake. Much like the waves rolling out behind the bow of Lancaster Dodd's ship, our protagonist Freddie…

  • Napoleon Dynamite

    Napoleon Dynamite

    ★★★★½

    No better comedy exists.

    Perfect pacing.

    Genius plotting.

    Genuine character development.

    Comedy so ahead of it's time my parents almost didn't let me hang out with the kid that showed me this movie in the first place.

    This is the one.
