    “Welcome to the Asshole of Los Angeles!”

    So, I’ll come clean, I’ve actually been trying to write a review for this film for close to two days now. Basically, no matter how hard I tried, it always came out either painfully pretentious, overly long, overly gushing or just too damn messy for anyone to consume. Sometimes, it was all of those mixed into one ugly little pot. So, instead of doing more than necessary, I’m just going to keep it…

    “Quitting is not going to make you stronger, living will. So just hang on and hang in there.”

    School was hell for me, absolute hell. It was hard enough being an autistic kid in an almost entirely unsympathetic environment, but when you combine that with constant and severe bullying, very few friends and constant mental torment, well, it’s certainly not a fun time. Before I had even turned 14, I was “removed” from the school because I was “too difficult”…

    “Now I see something red.”

    Goddamn, this holds up incredibly on rewatch! I last saw this back in theatres at a midnight screening on the night it released, and I really, really liked it then, as my previous review makes clear. But I’ve been nervous to watch it at home, purely because it was such a fun experience in the theatre that night, I didn’t think it would hold up, like maybe I was clouded by the experience. But, no,…

    “Home doesn’t mean the same for me as it does for you.”

    I couldn’t have gone into this movie any blinder if I tried. I’d seen a few images and trailers but had completely avoided any and all spoilers and even some of the casting. Hell, I even forgot that the writer/director of the picture is Emerald Fennell, whose previous effort before Saltburn was Promising Young Woman, which I was left thoroughly impressed by. Saltburn is no different, what a wicked piece…

    “Maybe he gets to win this time.”

    (NOTE: this review is completely spoiler free.)

    I saw Scream VI tonight as the second half of a double feature with Scream 5. And going to that screening, it was a seriously great choice on my part. The two movies work beautifully together. But, goddamn, I have to be blunt about it, this sequel to the requel blows the requel right out of the water. It f**king rocks! I really, really loved it.…

    John Wick: Chapter 4

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “Have you given any thought to where this ends?”

    John Wick Chapter 4. I can imagine when the first movie released that very few people thought that THREE sequels would soon follow, let alone that those sequels would remain so strong and consistent in quality. But, my god, the John Wick franchise is as strong as ever. I honestly thought this latest instalment was, for the most part, a blast. The cinematography is gorgeous, the performances are over-the-top, the action…
