  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    โ˜…โ˜…

    Plays by the book and widely uninspired. Couple that with stumpy performances, and well you get A Quiet Place Part II. There is so much barely audible dialogue, so much walking โ€” I get thatโ€™s the point but the novelty has long worn off. An unnecessary production.

    The Fountain

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    I think the perspective is unique and perplexing, and its core beliefs profound (Aronofsky did mention that his spiritual beliefs are basically this film), but thereโ€™s something about the way itโ€™s shot that feels so Lifetime. Not sure if itโ€™s intentional. Some have called it melodramatic, I agree. And the editing...so many shots! Is it intentional??

  • Submarine

    Submarine

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    The โ€œindieโ€ film to end all indie films, Submarine is smartly and quirkily written and employs a wonderful use of color (blue and red) to beautiful artistic effect. Washed in melancholy but tinged with warmth, Submarine creates an emotional language of its own, all accumulating in an extraordinary and powerful final scene.

  • Scream

    Scream

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    The greatest opening to a horror film of all time.
