    The Menu

    ★★★★★

    I watched this on my day off from cooking so you can guess which side I'm on.

    Ralph Fiennes and Anya Taylor-Joy are spectacular. I always enjoy John Leguizamo and Arturo Castro. The story is brilliant, eat the rich indeed. The film touches on so many important issues so tactfully within the service industry and kitchens especially, topics that affect me very personally. 'The Menu' balances the impossibility of perfection, suicide among chefs, sexual assault and industry rampant depression. Even…

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★½

    'Wakanda Forever' feels concurently like one of the busiest MCU entries and the least formulaic MCU chapter. A tribute to Boseman (more in advertising however), introduction to a new civilization and reintroduction to characters that really don't need to be here. *Looks at the colonizer.* There is so much going on that the film is really weighed down by its ties to the wider MCU and governments of that world. I like the idea of the world closing in on…

    There's Something Wrong with the Children

    ★½

    Bad January movies are back. Watch your damn kids and maybe, don't take them into sewers? Fucking idiots.

    Predictable with very little atmosphere or competent direction. I liked Gilford in 'Midnight Mass' and Amanda Crew in 'Silicon Valley' so I hoped they might carry the movie but produced by epix, this felt like nothing more than a made for TV movie. Alisha Wainwright became the best part of it and the score was aight.

    They really put a recap at the beginning LMFAO.

    Even though I did skip the first one, (I only watched this for the absurd title) the recap really didn't fill anything suprising in. Never let this director near another movie please. Laughably bland and worthless. I was playing 'The Pedestrian' on PS5 while watching this and those puzzles were way the fuck better.

    Apparently, I watched the extended version which is wildly different from the original? Claire and Henry aren't even in the theatrical version and I really wish I'd watched that one instead...

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★★

    'No Time to Die' is the best 007 film ever made.

    From the opening scene the film feels different, character focused and diving far deeper (see what I did) into Bond and Dr. Swann than Mendes ever did in 'Spectre'. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga improves upon the humor and charm while adding far more gravitas and grit to nearly every captivating scene in the film. The mask in the opening isn't outright scary but the performance behind it is rather…

    Dune

    ★★★★½

    336 days later, a few missed pre-screenings and missed opportunities, avoided online leaked releases and an HBO MAX debut later I FINALLY got to see 'Dune' in theaters the way a film of this magnitude was meant to be seen. As I write this, I am already re-watching the film again at home. I loved it.

    Amazing feels like an understatement because I don't feel as if I've seen anything of this ambition ever before. 'The Lord of the Rings'…
