  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★½

    psssssst, I don’t really get the hype around Noah Baumbach...sorry

  • Capote

    Capote

    ★★★½

    Still kind of a boring screenplay, still the GOAT biopic performance.

  • The Usual Suspects

    The Usual Suspects

    ★★★½

    The first two acts are pretty meh. Nearly all the characters are unlikeable (and not in a fun way), the script reads like Mad Libs, and the acting is super hit or miss. That being said,,,,,the ending + the Keyzer Soze reveal is great (even with me knowing what the reveal was before watching).

    P.S. - Stephen Baldwin looks like an inbred Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

    P.P.S. - Fuck Bryan Singer and Kevin Spacey

  • Upgrade

    Upgrade

    ★★★½

    Really fun! Logan Marshall Green’s physical acting is pretty impressive. The dialogue is a little wack, but hey

  • Scream 3

    Scream 3

    ★★★½

    As the number of the installment in the Scream franchise goes up, the quality goes down (not too much), and the goofy nonsense goes up (a lot). Excited to see if the 4th continues the pattern

  • Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    ★★★½

    How can I “Lee Israel” my way into YouTube money / success??

    This was a good lil movie. Pretty efficient in the way that it’s told. Good performances definitely carry the story which isn’t suuuper interesting. Grant’s acting in that last scene was top notch.

  • A Simple Favor

    A Simple Favor

    ★★★½

    Absolutely insane. Kept going back and forth between real movie and intense parody, which was certainly something!!!! Highly reccomend as something to watch w friends while you yell at the screen

  • Clue

    Clue

    ★★★½

    A whoooooole lot of one-liners & physical comedy. Some of it works, a lot of it doesn’t. The camp is fun, but I didn’t love it as much as I hoped I would

  • Funny Games

    Funny Games

    ★★★½

    The first half is pretty scary, there are good performances in here, but like, eh. I didn’t buy into the whole *wink wink nudge nudge* stuff to the audience. Felt a lot longer than it actually was, too.

    (P.S. there are probably already a bunch of “white boys really be like that” jokes, with people shouting about reverse racism in the comments, so I’m just gonna hold off on that one for tonight)

  • Point Break

    Point Break

    ★★★½

    Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves said gay rights!

  • Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    ★★★½

    As someone who LOVES both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Jake Gyllenhaal...I wish I enjoyed this more. With the way this story was told, I struggled to really get invested. It seemed like a movie with a beginning and an end, but nothing in the middle.

    (those post-credits are wild tho)

  • Gremlins

    Gremlins

    ★★★½

    There were probably 10-15 times when I said the “...and I believe in cinema” GDT meme during this. Absolute insanity. We need this level of chaos in all PG movies.
