    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★½

    Wasnt buying this until the last 45 minutes but holy shit it’s quite impossible to articulate how tremendous this stretch was without seeing it for yourself - it’s a reminder why we go to the movies in the first place. White knuckled entertainment at its finest.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★

    Overblown, overstuffed and overlong for something whose theme could easily be summed up into something along the lines of “positive thinking triumphs…”  but the most important thing is it understands that sometimes what we need most in life is a hug. And ultimately this movie is exactly that - a warm, big motherly hug.

    ★★★

    couldn't believe this was a real movie. It's like I had dreamt it. Sam Raimi was insane for this. What he managed to accomplish with a script this shitty is beyond what mere words could convey. Ridiculous stuff. Just love it when Bruce Campbell...

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★½

    Cool concept but very safe execution. Felt largely inconsequential. The callbacks were fun sure and they were mainly there for you to point at the screen Leo style. Pedro Pascal was amazing, maybe even better than Cage.

  • The Batman

    ★★★

    There is so much i want to comment on the lethargic solemnity of this film but the only thing that keeps flashing in my head right now is “Robert Pattinson’s jawline and smoky eyes deserve a 10/10.”

  • A Hero

    A Hero

    ★★★★

    It's always heartbreaking to watch someone who makes a minor blunder that undoes everything they’ve done right up to that point. A seemingly basic premise quickly devolves into something far more complex. A Hero expertly examines society's construction of a model, carved out by social expectations and the media, whose ethics and morality are publicly scrutinized at every step he takes. Farhadi asks a lot of questions yet offers very few to no answers. It's a film of truths, half-truths, and little…

    The 400 Blows

    ★★★★½

    Seeing this immediately after Larry Clark's Kids is the alleviation I needed to wash away the gunk and soot that that film had left behind in my brain. Truffaut's cinematic ode to childhood is breathtaking. The greeting cards from Paris, the jittery of the camera, the sparse narration, just free-wheeling poetry. A hopeful picture with one of the most fabulous freeze frames of all time. It makes me want to go to the beach, or somewhere I feel like I can truly immerse in the vastness…

    American Psycho

    ★★★★

    Absolutely loved that scene where Patrick confesses his crimes to his lawyer and breaks down in sweat, seeming contrite while doing so, but the moment he brings up killing Paul, though, he is visibly pleased and almost too delighted. That card really made him go psycho.
