    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

    ★★★★★

    Where do I even start? How about with a simple, to-the-point statement.

    This is the greatest movie of all time. It ties literally everything together perfectly in the tightest bow possible. The stakes have never been higher. The acting has never met more demanding circumstances. The score is the greatest ever composed for a film, comparable to the works of classical composers like Ludwig van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but somehow transcending their efforts and giving it to what…

    ★★★½

    "Luca" isn't the best Pixar movie, but it's certainly not "The Good Dinosaur".

    Feels like comparing "The Cat Returns" or "From Up On Poppy Hill" to "Spirited Away". Totally fine, but not an all-timer. Oh...no?

    There needs to be more chill movies for kids like My Neighbor Totoro, Winnie The Pooh, Paddington and Kiki's Delivery Service.

    Sometimes all you need to be is kind, man.

    A Better Tomorrow

    ★★★★

    While I thought it dragged a bit in the second act, the first and third acts were fucking awesome, as per usual with John Woo.

    The Killer is still my favorite, but I think this is a close second. Loved it.

    You people thought Gotti was a fucking meme?

    Give this a few months to be the laughing stock of the internet. I seriously couldn't believe what I was watching as I was seeing it.

    If it weren't for "The Haunting of Sharon Tate", this would be the worst film of the year, but it's simply too entertaining for me to put it lower than that offensive dumpster fire.

    This is gonna be John Travolta's "Wicker Man". A masterpiece of garbage.

    The Haunting of Sharon Tate

    I think "tasteless" is the only word I could use to describe this.

    A genuinely awful movie from start to finish and might be my worst of the year so far.

    Watching Once Upon A Time In Hollywood twice this week and then watching this was like getting punched in the face.
