    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    Best of the year so far and it isn’t even close. A two and half hour movie that flew by. I couldn’t believe it was over when the credits began to roll. This is one of the best middle chapters — and it is that, go in knowing that — of a trilogy in awhile. It does exactly what it needs to do by building on the world created in the first film and setting us up for a resolution…

  • Halloween Ends

    Halloween Ends

    ★★★½

    Hahahahahaha… I REALLY liked this one. Like… what do people want? I didn’t understand the criticism that came with Halloween Kills — apparently slasher fans didn’t like that there was no story? And now Halloween Ends has a story — one that takes some different directions — and that gets heat, too? And it isn’t the story of the RZ Halloweens necessarily that I don’t like; it’s the hell-billy infusion and dreadful performances. Those two are WAY worse than this.…

    ★★★★

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

    Well shit.

    Okay… so I have to get this out of the way: I LOVED this movie. It tore me apart in the best of ways. Almost felt cleansing. Truly wonderful…

    … and then the ending happened and I just felt completely deflated. Upset, even, and not in the way the emotional aspect of the move made me upset just moments before. I felt cheated almost. 

    As I was watching this, I couldn’t help but let my mind drift to…

  • Monica

    Monica

    ★★★★

    Wonderful and emotional film that was sadly left out of a big part of the award season conversation. Monica exists as something truly spectacular thanks to the excellent lead performance of Trace Lysette. She is a beautiful and powerful presence, kicking up a whirlwind of emotions both in her explosive moments and her painful reserved moments, I already want to see more from her. Patricia Clarkson is marvelous as well, but when is she not? I feel like there is…

    A group of scientists attempt to capture a mysterious sea creature from the Amazon. I have a special place in my heart for the Universal monsters. There is something really fun about the films that introduce these characters. They tell great stories and actually find ways…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★

    A magical, emotional, thrilling Spider-Man movie that caps off the Holland trilogy perfectly. Who knows where we’ll go from here, but this film is an exceptional salute to the cinematic world of Spider-Man. 

    My first trip back to the multiplex in over a year, and I am glad I went on this ride. People still don’t understand how to watch movies at the theater, but I don’t think they ever will.

    Review coming soon…
