• Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

    Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

    ★★★½

    Well-crafted. But I just never need to see another Pinocchio adaptation ever again. ENOUGH.

    ★★★★

    Iconic, terrific friendship cinema. Jennifer Lawrence giving one of her best performances. Brian Tyree Henry once again being tremendous. NOLA engulfing the audience. Truly great picture.

    ★★★★

    I have to say M3GAN made MANY good points. And frankly, the world is better off without some of the folks she killed. Had a blast watching this!

    Wild that Martin Scorsese made a film about my personal recurring nightmare

    See this is why I don't have roommates.

  • Blonde

    Blonde

    This entire movie feels like it just exists to humiliate Marilyn Monroe. And it presents this theory that all women are defined by their relationships to men in their lives, and if those relationships aren't good, the women must obviously be crazy. Holy shit I knew some of the discourse around this film but I had no idea how shitty it all really is.

    Also, even without its offensiveness, it's just technically bad. Edited choatically. Some beautiful shots but bizarre…

    Delightful, old people cinema.

    ★★★★

    And y’all said the rom com is dead! 

    Sissy Spacek is luminous here. 

    I would happily let Robert Redford steal all of my stuff if it made him happy.

  • Rocky IV

    Rocky IV

    ★★½

    OK this one lost me a little bit. Stallone's ego is in full swing here. Really hated what this movie does to Apollo Creed's character...just completely unnecessary. But I still had some fun with this and, with the current landscape of world politics, I enjoyed how anti-Russian and pro-USA this movie is. I definitely just have a love and soft spot for this whole franchise now.

    Ivan Drago...another great name.

  • Rocky III

    Rocky III

    ★★★½

    So many montages...and I enjoyed all of them. Very different than the previous installments in the franchise and I liked that the structure changed. The character of Rocky feels a little abandoned here in place of Stallone's ego, but that's fine as it fits the narrative. Yeah, still a good, fun time.

    Rocky Balboa...incredible movie name.
    Apollo Creed...one of the best names in cinema
    Clubber Lang...what happened here?
