  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★½

    very fun! we’ve got several lovable characters, a few jokes that made me laugh out loud in a theater where i was completely alone, but something feels a lil disjointed about the plot. switching between several different bad guys, without knowing who to care about the most, always feels like it takes something away for me. it’s awesome to have a genuinely unique, weird, gory comic book movie with big names in it, though. ps Margot Robbie just keeps solidifying that her role as Harley is all-time great casting. it’s corny to say but she really seems like she was born to play that character.

  • Funny People

    Funny People

    ★★★½

    + depressed Adam Sandler is the best Adam Sandler
    + James Taylor saying “fuck Facebook!” and about a dozen other fun cameos
    + the way the plot mirrors real life in the first half is genuinely great

    - the plot falls apart in the second half
    - the runtime is far too much

  • Fear Street: 1978

    Fear Street: 1978

    ★★★½

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

    preferred this to part one! didn’t have the burden of setting everything up and could focus on a good ol’ fashion, summer camp-slasher (…with a little bit of the aforementioned possession stuff sprinkled in). i was terrified that sadie sink was gonna get the maya hawke treatment, but we’re good 👍

  • Soul

    ★★★½

    my spark is respecting women 😀👍

  • Middleditch & Schwartz

    Middleditch & Schwartz

    ★★★½

    laughed out loud a few times but the format wasn’t really for me. I think I would’ve preferred bits that were half as long instead of, “we’re gonna talk to an audience member for a couple of minutes and then do an hour of material based on that alone”

  • Legally Blonde

    Legally Blonde

    ★★★½

    they hate to see a girlboss winning

  • I Love You, Man

    I Love You, Man

    ★★★½

    Peter being viciously awkward on the phone is the most represented I’ve ever felt on screen

  • Fyre

    Fyre

    ★★★½

    *a compilation of people talking about how Billy is the greatest entrepreneur in the world and how he could sell water to a whale*

    *Billy appears on screen and starts trying to advertise something......and he is SO clearly the slimiest, scummiest person in human history*

    there’s been a lot of chaos in the news with all the Super League stuff and i felt like coming back to this. what an unparalleled dumb moment. just extraordinarily stupid from start to finish

  • Blow the Man Down

    Blow the Man Down

    ★★★½

    I was absolutely locked in during that first half, but the ending felt a little abrupt for me. however, I’d recommend a good, 90 minute crime mystery to anyone and everyone. check it out, folks!

  • Black Mirror: Black Museum

    Black Mirror: Black Museum

    ★★★½

    the pain story has popped into my head every once in a while ever since i first saw this and it makes me want to throw up and die 💔

  • She's All That

    She's All That

    ★★★½

    - insane cast (USHER RAYMOND?)
    - the sixpence none the richer needle drop
    - matthew lillard once again proving why he’s a generational talent

    what more could you ask for? besides maybe like, less malicious energy and an ending that packs a stronger punch

  • 22 Jump Street

    22 Jump Street

    ★★★½

    a lot of my favorite jokes in comedies tend to be the short one liners that happen after a big joke is finishing, right as they’re cutting to the next scene — and this movie has some great examples of those
