    West Side Story

    This was actually so amazing, I can’t believe Stephen Spielberg has never graced us with a musical before!!! Minus .5 for you know why

    Really just needed Judy Garland singing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas to put me to sleep

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel

    ★★★★½

    It’s such a shame that Disney marketed this movie so poorly. Sure, it’s not as glamorous to discuss women’s rights and sexual politics in trailers, but could they have at least suggested that Jodie Comer was the hero of the story, not Matt Damon in that god awful haircut?

    Ed Wood

    ★★★★½

    1990s Tim Burton is so damn comforting. This was such a great movie and you can feel Burton’s dedication and passion for the material in its execution. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to see Ed Wood, but it’s a great love letter to artistry, self-confidence, and classic Hollywood. I’m a sucker for movies about the creatives behind-the-scenes like Mank, and Ed Wood has even more substance and heart with the classic Tim Burton touch. This definitely won’t be my last time watching, and let’s hope Tim Burton brings back this kind of care, individuality, and passion for his projects.

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl

    ★★★★½

    Knowing this is one of Anne Hathaway’s favorite “rom-coms” just makes this such a different viewing experience

  • The Night of the Hunter

    The Night of the Hunter

    ★★★★½

    Still not sure whether I like Robert Mitchum better as a terrifyingly brutal villain or as the sweethearted love interest in Holiday Affair… either way he’s compelling as hell in his roles. Night of the Hunter isn’t at all what I had expected, but damn did it’s messages about fronting religion while pushing violence and amorality work. It’s also just an exciting thriller, even more so with it being at the point of view of a young boy and his…
