    Jackass 4.5

    ★★★½

    I stupidly made the decision to eat an apple right as it started. I did not finish the apple.

    Some of the grossest shit I think I've ever seen, but at the same time this was fun to watch. Had me laughing, wincing in disgust and at the pain inflicted. Stupidity at its finest and I mean that in the best possible way.

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★

    Provocative, horrific, disturbing and even thrilling. Quite the feature debut from Emerald Fennell in what I'm sure has sparked a lot of conversation. Bold in both its presentation and how it tackles its sensitive topics. I thought it really effectively dismantled the nice guy tropes. Some of the casting in those roles were really intelligent because it purposefully goes against how they're generally viewed upon both on and offscreen. How this goes about telling a story about grief, trauma, injustice,…

  • Love, Death & Robots: Jibaro

    Love, Death & Robots: Jibaro

    ★★★

    Decided to finally wrap up this new volume of Love Death + Robots. While this finale was visually interesting for the first half, after a certain act I started to tune out. At least this one was different with its no dialogue approach.

    Overall, I only enjoyed four out of the nine episodes in Vol. 3. I really only loved one though. This anthology continues to be a balance of hits and misses, but even most of the hits are ones that I just enjoyed for the time being and nothing more.

  • Love, Death & Robots: In Vaulted Halls Entombed

    Love, Death & Robots: In Vaulted Halls Entombed

    ★★

    I hope they stop making these episodes revolving around armed forces. They're always the least interesting ones because they generally follow the same beats. Military personnel face a threat, go guns blazing and people get torn open and apart. I will give this one praise for its ending, just wish we explored that monstrous creature much more.

  • The Kid Detective

    The Kid Detective

    ★★★★

    "It's difficult to accept the difference between who you are in your head and who you are in the world."

    A surprising watch. The mystery at hand was compelling to me and it's led by a terrific performance from Adam Brody. I initially thought this was going to be a lighthearted comedic murder mystery, I was way off mark. You'd think it's just a story about a kid who peaked too early and now has a chance to reenergize his life and reclaim his past glory, but there's layers to this. Things get HEAVY. As truths get revealed, it made everything I saw before better.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Mason's Rats

    Love, Death & Robots: Mason's Rats

    ★★★½

    Solid episode all around that just serves to entertain. It’s got some love, tons of death, killer robots AND warrior rats. The short episode length worked in its favour. 

    Do not fuck with rats.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Swarm

    Love, Death & Robots: Swarm

    ★★½

    My least favourite Tim Miller directed episode. 

    It starts off intriguing, then gets drowned in dull exposition. Once it starts to become captivating again, it ends abruptly. Only real consistent aspect were some of the visuals and freaky creature designs.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Kill Team Kill

    Love, Death & Robots: Kill Team Kill

    ★★

    Least favourite of Vol. 3 so far. Constant littering of bullets and bloody deaths, but it’s all so boring due to the incredibly annoying characters. At least this one didn’t look like a video game cutscene.

  • Gentlemen Broncos

    Gentlemen Broncos

    ★★★

    A critical and commercial failure when it released and while that may not be much of a surprise, I don't see it as such. Sure, it definitely didn't focus on story or character as much as it could have. There's an offbeat vibe from the bonkers sci-fi stories it visualizes that steals the show. I wish it was a bit longer to further flesh out the main character and his relationships, because I feel there's an underrated gem in here…

  • Love, Death & Robots: Night of the Mini Dead

    ★★★★½

    This is cinema.” -Martin Scorsese 

    To me, that’s cinema.” -Bong Joon-ho 

    I have to agree, gentlemen. This was some delicious cinema. I absolutely loved the overhead perspective of what is the cutest depiction of a spreading zombie apocalypse I’ve seen. Hilarious with some great animation. My favourite episode of Vol. 3 so far.

  • Love, Death & Robots: The Very Pulse of the Machine

    Love, Death & Robots: The Very Pulse of the Machine

    ★★★

    Quite the trip, physically and mentally. 

    This one was a hallucinogenic slow burn. Wasn’t entirely captivated all the way through, but I liked some of the trippy visuals, score and the ending.
