  • Wild Rose

    Wild Rose

    ★★★★

    Thank you to this whoever steered this from predictable tropes and gave us plenty of teary eyed Julie Walters

  • Ready or Not

    Ready or Not

    ★★★

    Wish I hadn't seen Knives Out first but I'll be damned if I don't appreciate a well timed "fuck

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★½

    Nothing says compelling villain like an old man on a coat hanger releasing a podcast

  • Long Shot

    Long Shot

    ★★★½

    How dare Charlize Theron be this gd funny

  • Sabrina

    Sabrina

    ★★★

    A very beautiful movie that happens to open with attempted suicide and Audrey making Humphrey Bogart look like the goddamn crypt keeper.

  • Blue Valentine

    Blue Valentine

    ★★★★

    Was mentally prepared for an emotional relationship movie and not the real premise ie "look what we put women through!

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★½

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

    *gasp* A DONUT

  • Doctor Sleep

    ★★★½

    Never follow a hippie to a second location.

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Do you ever scroll through other Letterbox reviews because you don't know what to say.

    I really don't know what to say.

    Funny. Heartbreaking. Cringe-inducing. And that ending. Oof. OOF.

  • The Sixth Sense

    The Sixth Sense

    ★★★

    Knew the ending but the cabinets and the vhs scenes still got me. Also "look at my face." 💕

  • Train to Busan

    Train to Busan

    ★★★★

    Usually hate fast zombies and tbh tired of the genre itself but this is a great action horror. Like I'm-halfway-through-and-already-want-to-watch-again-in-a-crowded-theater great. That escalator sequence? Woof. Note to self: find Ma Dong-Seok when shit goes down.

  • Jupiter Ascending

    Jupiter Ascending

    ★★

    Oh Wachowskis I wanted to like this one. So much of what I love on paper. But so boring! Feels like they shot one fight scene and dropped it into different green scenes and replayed 5 times. Not enough Redmayne.
