  • Don't Worry Darling

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★★½

    Prior to its release Don't Worry Darling made waves for all sorts of alleged behind the scenes melodrama, but the finished film shows no signs of a troubled production. It's not quite as clever as it thinks it is and Harry Styles shouldn't quit his day job just yet, but otherwise Olivia Wilde's sophomore feature is a solid psychological thriller.

    The movie has two weak links, the script and the male lead. Once the twist is revealed the writing doesn't…

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★

    Looks like DC finally got their shit together.

    Freed from the neutering shackles of the PG-13 rating, Margot Robbie's solo turn as Harley Quinn delivers the whacky entertainment that her character's inaugural big screen appearance didn't. Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a lot of fun. The only other R-rated superhero action comedy to compare it to is Deadpool obviously.

    Other than that Don't Make Me Go is a very sweet road movie carried by Mia Isaac and John Cho's wonderful performances.

    Blonde is nothing like I expected. I knew it is based on a fiction book about Marilyn Monroe's life, so I didn't think it would play out like a classic biopic. I guess, I expected a more extreme version of Spencer, but I was still way off.

    Before I get into anything else, let me get one of my biggest pet peeves in contemporary movies out of the way. The use of the Academy ratio. I believe it's almost never…

    Dune

    ★★½

    Well, that wasn't very good.

    Dune collapses under its gargantuan ambition. Denis Villeneuve builds a world so stupendously large in every frame, and yet he spectacularly fails at creating space for his characters to exist in. There isn't a single character that has more to offer than mere surface level traits. Without proper introduction it feels like we are thrown right into an ongoing story. Despite being littered with clunky exposition - and dialogue so wooden it would give Christopher…

    Say what you want about Top Gun, but Tony Scott was a goddamn painter with his camera.
