    American Me

    ★★★★★

    American Me is one of the great American gangster pictures and a film that never quite got it's due. Produced, directed, and starring Edward James Olmos, the film is a tour de force show of his great and under-utilized talents. It's also one of the rare gangster films that completely refuses to glamorize organized crime. Depicting a Mexican Mafia lord and his rise to power from within prison, the film eschews Coppola's nostalgic romanticization of gangsters in the Godfather films…

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ½

    Zack Snyder’s Justice League might just be one of the most hyped up movies ever made. After nearly half a decade of buzz and media buildup, the film arrives on HBOMAX to a milquetoast release. It is, without a doubt, one of the most inept would-be epics Hollywood has ever released. I must say, it’s intriguing to note how Snyder has strung along his fanbase. Giving them scraps of rumors and images here and there over vast stretches of time,…

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★★

    One of the best films of the year, The French Dispatch is a hysterically funny movie that also delivers a profound and piercing poignancy. This is another great Wes Anderson film, yet another example of his immense creativity as a filmmaker. Some may say he's a director who never changes, never grows, but I very much disagree. With nearly each film, he increasingly hones the level of exacting detail and sagacious insight and The French Dispatch once again puts that…

    Time After Time

    ★★★

    Time After Time is a film that flirts with greatness but never truly commits. The premise, about the great writer H. G. Wells following Jack the Ripper to the twentieth century in the time machine he built in order to stop him, is juicy and ripe enough to be compelling in and of itself but the filmmakers do not follow through. Much of the film is weakened by a bloated and slow midsection as well as faulty politics (Meyer praises…

    In this movie, Iron Man bangs Spider-Man. A historic achievement for the MCU.

    A major disappointment. I was a huge Edgar Wright fan. I loved all his prior work. But I can't abide this film. It feels like Nickelodeon tried to make a Michael Mann movie with all the problematic-ness that that entails. It feels like a film made by people who drive on the right side of the road when they play GTA. Everything is so pompous and phony and safe with the story being completely divorced from any kind of reality.…
