    Hi, I'm Lily Gladstone's agent, and here's how she'll win Best Actress at the Oscars.

    "Can you find the wolves in this picture?" - Ernest Burkhart

    Hollywood has a bit of a diversity problem. Now no, this isn't a complaint about "too much diversity", it's actually quite the opposite. Studies have shown in the last few years that only around 20-27% of Hollywood productions feature multi-racial stars or filmmakers. Even then, this has actually diminished quite a lot. To make…

    I'm sorry Anthony Hopkins, I can't hear your narration over the giant space-vagina-portal on screen.

    ...

    Zack Snyder is a wonderful human being & humanitarian but is also an extremely controversial filmmaker. With his latest creation, he takes a massive swing into hardcore science fiction by reviving a rejected 'Star Wars' idea he pitched to Lucasfilm back in the early 2010s.

    I can see why they did that.

    After a decade of poorly made DC films which originally were spearheaded by…

    Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds

    ★★½

    I would have preferred a feature-length documentary about the making of 'Death Stranding'...or...a documentary about Hideo Kojima's life and how we got here.

    Instead, this one-hour doc is about both and neither ideas gets enough screen time to justify making this film so short & generic.

    'Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds' feels like a glorified YouTube video instead of the detailed documentary you'd come to expect.

    With every vignette where a major celebrity praises Kojima's genius, the documentary falters because it fails…

    ★★★★

    "Don't call it "art" like that ends the discussion." - Marian

    'Drive Away Dolls' is a love letter to 90s cinema, the era that made the Coen Brothers Hollywood icons. Even though the film seems insane, nonsensical, and meandering, there are tons of references to other iconic 90s films within its madness.

    Two best friends decide to go on a road trip after one of them gets dumped, prompting a last-minute move to Tallahassee. On this adventure, these two lesbians…

    ★★★★

    I like to imagine Ryan Reynolds was so sick of Hugh Jackman bragging about 'The Greatest Showman' that he went out of his way to make a movie that ridicules musicals out of spite.

    'Spirited' is a self-deprecating Christmas musical that hates its own existence and I love it.

    Charles Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' has been beaten to death by Hollywood since 1908. Seriously, we've been regurgitating this classic novel with reimaginings for over 114 years and this is one…

  • The Wonder

    The Wonder

    ★★

    One of the weirdest & most unnecessary openings/closings of all time.

    'The Wonder' is the type of arthouse film that's just asking to be made fun of and I'm honestly having a hard time agreeing with its praises.

    Florence Pugh can do nothing wrong and even when her films fail her, she commits fully no matter what. I have no criticism for her acting at all. In fact, she carries this film on her back figuratively and at one point "literally".…
