  • The Invitation

    The Invitation

    There’s a lesson to be learned: don’t go to a strange wedding on a different continent with someone you have met for literally 30 seconds. You might be a lead character of a boring ass vampire movie.

  • Beast

    Beast

    ★½

    The dialogue in this film was very poorly written and while the scenes with the lion were cool, everything else felt unnecessary.

    Truly a movie to watch with your friends and make fun of.

  • Bullet Train

    Bullet Train

    ★★★★★

    This movie far exceeded my already somewhat high expectations, which is rare. Such a great time at the movies.

  • Nope

    Nope

    ★★

    Well shot and acted, however there were a lot of things in this movie, plus a lot of this movie felt boring and sluggish that by the time you got to the exciting parts at the end, you just didn’t care.

  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    ★★★★

    This is the first of the Thor movies I throughly enjoyed. 

    This film had it all: humor, great visuals, a terrifying villain, and some heart. Definitely got some feels from this movie and I’m not mad at it.

    I also liked that this movie is almost completely self-contained (minus the guardians appearing I guess) so even non-MCU fans who haven’t been up to date with every entry in the franchise can enjoy it.

    P.S.: there’s screaming goats.

  • Elvis

    Elvis

    ★★★

    I’m not much of an Elvis fan musically but I do like a good music biopic, I feel like this could have been about 15-20 minutes shorter than it was (at least). But overall good performances.

  • Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe

    Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe

    ★★★★

    I was curious to see if Beavis and Butthead could work in 2022 and it absolutely does. The film definitely feels like a proper sequel to the 1990’s show and movie “Beavis and Butthead Do America” with some modern jokes that don’t feel too shoehorned in. 

    I laughed pretty hard throughout the whole thing. I just wish it wasn’t a movie that was sent straight to a streaming service that next to nobody has. Give movies a chance and if you don’t do theaterical releases at least do physical releases.

  • The Black Phone

    The Black Phone

    ★★★★

    I have to admit, this movie surpassed every expectation I had for it. There were moments that scared me, there were moments that I was on the edge of my seat, and moments where I would wonder “what the f*ck” and laugh out loud. 

    Definitely worth the watch if you’re curious.

  • Lightyear

    Lightyear

    ★★★½

    I felt the idea to make this a movie that Andy from Toy Story would see and make him want a Buzz Lightyear toy was a really interesting and creative decision. The animation was top notch and it does get you in the emotions in some spots. Despite the controversy this film seems to have from different idiots on the internet, I think it’s a great family movie for the summer. 

    Also, Sox might just be my official favorite Pixar character ever.

  • The Bob's Burgers Movie

    The Bob's Burgers Movie

    ★★★

    Funnier than expected.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    I was honestly expecting to be bombarded with cameos from Marvel movies past but thankfully that is not what I got. Instead I received an entertaining trip through a multiverse that leaves our characters in interesting places to develop. I’d also say that this is a marvel movie that the young ones should skip—at many points in the back half it does feel a bit like a horror movie.

    Also, it provides a post credit scene that will either enrage you or fill you with laughter.

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★★

    Truly the most I’ve laughed in a theater in a long time. Much more enjoyable than I thought it was going to be.
