  • Bo Burnham: Make Happy

    Bo Burnham: Make Happy

    ★★★★★

    I love this man so much. His stand-up has had such a profound effect on my life and I appreciate him endlessly. This is a weird side note: but I’m very happy to live in a world where both him and John Mulaney are thriving comics. I think they both hit different, very necessary notes within your psyche. My lanky kings.

  • Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    ★★★½

    The story itself is pretty flawed, but it is absolutely insane that this exists. So, 4 stars.


    Updating after a few days: the magic died down and most of what I remember is the lame story. 3.5 now.

  • Babette's Feast

    Babette's Feast

    ★★★½

    Watching this (and enjoying it) is the most cultured I’ve ever felt. Babette is a QUEEN.

  • Bird Box

    Bird Box

    ★★★

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

    That sure was a movie! Here are a bunch of little thoughts I had during it:
    - The premise is basically A Quiet Place mixed with The Happening and...props to them for finding funding for that

    - The casting was the strangest thing I’ve ever seen. Trevante Rhodes and Lil Rel are great, Bullock and Malkovich are always hit or miss for me, and WHO INVITED MACHINE GUN KELLY????
    - Speaking of Malkovich, his performance is absurd. Idk if I…

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    ★★★★½

    I love this movie so much. Jesse Plemmons deserves a nomination for this and I will continue to say that until I’m on my death bed.

  • A Fish Called Wanda

    A Fish Called Wanda

    ★★★★

    Very funny! And one of the strangest, genre-blending movies I’ve ever seen. One of the only films I can think of that operates well as a comedy, romance, and crime movie.

  • Enemy

    ★★★★★

    fun fact about me: epitaphs are some of my favorite things in the world. 

    another fun fact about me: this movie made me lose my shit

  • We Need to Talk About Kevin

    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★★★½

    That might be the single most upsetting movie I’ve ever watched. I definitely wasn’t ready for that.

  • Roma

    Roma

    ★★★½

    A few incredible shots, some brilliant, subtle long takes, but overall...meh. Everything moves incredibly slowly and things felt pretty dull for the first 30 minutes or so. The third act was pretty great, but it just took so long to get there. I seem to be in the vast minority on this one, so, hey. Maybe I’ll try it again in a month or two.

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite

    ★★★★½

    This is tough for me to rate. I think I was in such awe of the technicals behind this that I didn’t have enough room in my mind to garner an emotional connection. I don’t know if that makes any sense. The movie is remarkably made, in that regard it’s like a 6/5. But, I didn’t feel invested in it like I have with all of my other “perfect” movies. In a perfect world, this will do really, really well at the Oscars.

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    Absolutely remarkable. Easily one of my favorite cbm’s of all time. The animation alone is enough to leave you awestruck. Then you bring in the incredible storytelling, a myriad of different themes, and Nicolas Cage voicing a noir themed Spider-Man...and yeah. Wow.

    ALSO: I had screaming babies in my theater, but they were NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING compared to the comic book bros behind me that literally had a comment every 2 minutes. that’s not an exaggeration. they talked that much.
