  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★½

    great start but dragged and was unnecessarily long. only 10 mins of Ana de Armas, and Rami Malek's poor structure as a villain. not a fitting last movie for the Daniel Craig era.

  • The Dig

    The Dig

    ★★½

    Beautiful cinematography and scoring matched with great performances from Fiennes and Mulligan. This film nailed the era and setting these events took place in, it’s like I was watching a documentary on this discovery while in a war. Unfortunately, I just wasn’t a big fan of the story in general: the wordy dialogue on archaeology, anglo-Saxons, and the Viking era got me drowsy after a while. I also didn’t understand the sudden subplots in the second half that weren’t present…

  • What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    ★★½

    You’ve seen this one before: the story of a dysfunctional family in a small town: one who all know one another. It had some heartwarming scenes here and there but overall I found it a little too overdramatic, it almost felt like an MMK episode.

    I can feel for Johnny Depp’s character as this young man in charge of keeping the family afloat, while still going through adulthood. I like the transition in the ending and the score matched the setting of the movie. Lastly, it’s no surprise Leo DiCaprio is the household name he is now when he was doing this at 18 years old.

  • The Intouchables

    The Intouchables

    ★★½

    This movie felt like “Green Book” but the other way around. I consider that a better movie because of the acting and characters of both leads. This was more of a one-man show with Omar Sy leading the way and it’s no surprise that he landed the role of Lupin.

    Although it had heartwarming moments, I didn’t feel the chemistry between the 2 which was vital as the story is pretty much about their unlikely friendship. However, I liked the score and the shots of Paris.

  • Da 5 Bloods

    Da 5 Bloods

    ★★½

    Normally I’m a fan of Spike Lee’s films despite him making a lot of the same movies with the same themes. I thought “BlacKKKlansman” should have won best picture last 2019 so I kind of had hopes for this one. I just felt a lot of things were forced: a messy script, a lousy pace, average editing, and the overall message of the Vietnam war mixed with issues of race and discrimination: 2 completely different kinds of wars.

    I genuinely…

  • Happiest Season

    Happiest Season

    ★★½

    I feel like I liked it more than I should. The cast were all great but the standouts for me were Alison Brie and Aubrey Plaza. I thought the movie was clever combining themes of Christmas, love, and family while getting out its point on equality, LGBT and family standards. 


    I wasn’t super sold on the relationship between the two leads, the film focused more on their arguments and disagreements so we never got to see their “love”. The ending was also…

  • What Lies Beneath

    What Lies Beneath

    ★★½

    a pretty good thriller but nothing we haven’t seen before. i saw the so called “twist” coming from a mile away and the pacing was pretty slow. it had fine acting and some intense scenes but there are better ones out there in this genre.

  • The Meg

    The Meg

    ★★½

    just average, pretty fun and entertaining but the kind of movie you’d forget after weeks. also just ripped off JAWS.

  • Hush

    Hush

    ★★½

    nothing new here, just another home invasion story. there hasn’t been alot the past years and this came out before “a quiet place” and “don’t breath” so it may have been great at the time.
