    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★½

    I had no plans of watching this as the poster didn't make it seem like something that would interest me a whole lot, but when I saw that the names of Phil Lord and Chris Miller were attached to this project I decided to give it a shot, and I sure am glad I did!

    This movie is charming and the story is good, but it really stands out because of its fresh animation style, very reminiscent of the studio's…

  • Another Round

    Another Round

    ★★★★

    Solid filmmaking, it goes a lot deeper and darker than I thought this would be, most likely because of the very unfortunate circumstances surrounding the making of this movie, but I'm glad it didn't devolve into an anti-alcohol PSA like we so often see either. You know what? Foolish of me to even think this was a possibility in a piece of Danish culture.

  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    ★★★★★

    No one can direct adventurous action sequences quite like Spielberg could during the peak of his career and wouldn't you know it, this movie is made up of iconic action set pieces succeeding one another from beginning to end. The classic John Williams score transports you right in the heart of this story and you're pretty much sucked in for the rest of this amazing journey towards the Holy Grail. It's the kind of movie that somehow makes you want to become both an archaeologist and a filmmaker just because of how cool it is!

    Also this is Sean Connery's best role don't @ me.

  • Hercules

    Hercules

    ★★★★

    I love characters using Brooklyn accents where it has absolutely no place to be and I gotta say Ancient Greece is pretty up there for that, probably second only to Jesus himself in The Last Temptation of Christ.

  • Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance

    Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance

    ★★★½

    When you want to watch The Mandolorian but you accidentally open The Criterion Channel instead of Disney+

    ★★★½

    Can't wait for Margot Robbie in a bubble bath to explain to us how Wall Street lost billions because of 🚀 meme stocks 🚀 in the sequel

  • The Aviator

    The Aviator

    ★★★½

    Unbeknownst to me quarantine plays a big role in this movie so it ended up being a pretty topical watch.

    First of all, the cast is ridiculously stacked, just look at it for yourself. Overall, this is a pretty good biopic and the filmmaking is definitely above average, but with it's almost three-hour runtime it's overlong considering how it is not especially interesting in certain parts (a problem I didn't have with other Scorsese biopics of the same length such…

  • Shithouse

    Shithouse

    ★★½

    I don't get the hype for this.

    On one hand, the filmmaking is very competent considering it was made by a 22-year-old with just a few thousand dollars.

    On the other hand, I just couldn't get past the immensely annoying main character, who is played by the writer/director of the movie, to the point where the first thing I did after the credits rolled was to go check out one of his interview to see if he was anything like…

  • Lovers Rock

    Lovers Rock

    ★★★★

    I'm starting 2021 with a movie about a party, and a great one at that, and hopefully I can end the year by actually going to a party.

    In the meantime, this will suffice to remind me of universal party experiences such as:

    -Getting a warm beer from a guy who treats a plastic table in the basement as a legitimate bar

    -The always super-long line for the shittiest bathroom you've ever seen

    -The bouncer being somehow the coolest and…

  • Soul

    ★★★★

    So are all jazz clubs made the exact same way or did they straight up copy Seb's from La La Land?

  • Lethal Weapon

    Lethal Weapon

    ★★★★

    Die Hard is often considered as the definitive action/non-Christmassy Christmas movie, but I'd say this gives it a good run for its money.

    And dare I say it, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover have more charisma than Bruce Willis.

  • Asterix Conquers America

    Asterix Conquers America

    ★★★

    Asterix Conquers America is the seventh animated Asterix movie and the first one produced outside of France (it was produced in Germany). While it is nowhere near the quality of the series' bests such as The 12 Tasks of Asterix and Asterix and Cleopatra, it is still a fun time with these amiable characters who had been around for over 30 years at this point.

    Those familiar with the the previous films or the comic books will realize quickly that…
