    Bodies Bodies Bodies

    ★★★★

    While the Among Us stuff is fun, I found the first act before all the shit went down to be much more stressful. The main reason being that it unlocked a phobia I have of being trapped inside a house with a bunch of obnoxious people and just having to deal with them. That whole segment was way more anxiety inducing.
    Still this is probably the funniest movie of the year. The more it went on the more hilarious it…

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

    Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

    ★★½

    It's definately more watchable than the last movie. The writing is slightly better and it feels like some stuff is actually happening. Some scenes here and there were fun and the casting is still spot on. Jude Law is wonderful as Dumbledore and I would really like to watch him in a better movie, while Mads Mikkelsen is a vast improvement from Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, despite his replacement being for the wrong reasons.
    Still while the writing is slighly…

  • Aftersun

    Aftersun

    ★★★★

    While this is not a movie that I would necessarily call entertaining, it's still a brilliantly made film. The way it uses perspective to tell this heart-wrenching story is very effective and, while it took a while to actually get what it was going for, as soon as the ending hit it felt like such an emotional gut-punch.
    At the same time you got some wonderful performances out of the two main characters here. The father is one of the…

  • The Wolf of Snow Hollow

    The Wolf of Snow Hollow

    ★★★½

    While the movie has one of the most unlikable protagonists I've seen in a while, it's still well-made and an interesting take on the whole genre. It looks good and the story takes interesting directions. You can tell that they used the small budged impressively well and Jim Cummings is an interesting voice in today's cinema.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    ★★★

    Much better than I was lead to believe. I thought I was getting some lame slasher movie but I instead got an allegory for homosexuality and possibly even body dysmorphia. It's no wonder than all the dude's victims are male and he literally morphs into a different person at night.
    The main problem is how sloppy it often is. The dream sequences aren't all that creative and the fact that it's a Nightmare on Elm Street movie prevents it from…

  • The World's End

    The World's End

    ★★★★★

    This film is very significant to me since the main cast is essentially me and my friends. Like it's spot on. I can pinpoint which character in the movie represents whom in my friend group. Their dynamic is so perfect, it's actually really impressive. Even when it's not insane shit happening on screen, these characters keep me invested. It's also surprisingly well shot. Like the action scenes look amazing which is a bit unexpected for this type of film.
    Alongside…

    Why am I still noticing new jokes like? This movie is unreal.

  • In Bruges

    In Bruges

    ★★★★½

    Never has a film been so unapologetically mean towards a town that it by end made me seriously wanna visit. Yeah I know that Bruges is purgatory and shit but the place looks like a goddamn fairy-tale.

  • American Psycho

    American Psycho

    ★★★★½

    Lived up to the hype. Since it has become so heavily memed I was worried that I wouldn't be able to take this seriously at all, but thankfully I found it effective in pretty much every way. It strikes a perfect balance between being kinda fucked up and utterly hilarious. The writing here is great, but what carries the whole movie is Christian Bale who delivers what is possibly a career-best performance. He plays this cynical souless asshole perfectly and I don't think that anyone else could have been cast instead.

  • She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

    She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

    ★★

    I will start off by saying that this is WAY overhated and I completely buy that misogyny is part of the problem. You have all those ridiculous idiots that think that the show hates men for whatever reason and its whole purpose is to be woke and push some kind of agenda or something. If you watched the show and you felt personally offended, then sorry to break it to you but you're part of the problem. The show only…

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★½

    This movie had the difficult task of finding a way to continue the story from the first one, without using the main character as the actor unfortunately died. I can at least say that it did a pretty good job both at making his loss powerful in the context of the film and actually being a watchable and entertaining movie. I appreciate that Ryan Coogler has showcased african culture as prominently in these movies and he directed them pretty well.…

  • The Rite

    The Rite

    ★★★½

    It very much feels like a worse version of Persona is every way, but there's something odd about it. I can't fully explain why, but I really enjoy watching it. I have no idea what's so enjoyable to me, but I honestly have a pretty good time with it.
    It's probably how unreal it often feels. Like what you're watching isn't actually real life but rather some weird dream. The limited locations as well as the intense performances add to that factor.
