    Free Guy

    ★★★★

    Really fun and for the feels.

    It's not pretty often a video game movie focused on character development and a unique translation to the big screen. Ryan Reynolds plays a really down-to-earth NPC in this open-world game Free City.

    But there's more layers to this whole fun-filled action-packed fiesta. There's the underlying theme of trying to save a world of NPCs deserving a better life in a world not run by an evil game creator.

    Some really fun cameos and references here and there. This is what Space Jam: A New Legacy could've been.

  • The Nowhere Inn

    The Nowhere Inn

    ★★★

    A concert film like no other.

    Annie Clark (St. Vincent) portrays her authentic self in a mockumentary about her touring, personal, and subconscious life.

    With so many things going on, the film loses its foot on what it truly wanted to focus on. It becomes this mash-up of something that wanted to play out like a David Lynch-esque surrealist.

    But there were some bright spots and comedic gems in the segments in the film.

    ★★★★

    The curse of living longer than the people close to you is hard and lonely. But Dory found it a privilege and a blessing.

    I never expected I'd feel emotional with this. I get that it is an intimate story about Dory's life in a span of 20 minutes. But as soon as she talks about her past lover and remnants of the past, it really was something.

    The Hows of Us

    ★★½

    Saved by Kathryn Bernardo's commendable acting.

    I liked some parts of the film when it sort of tried to break out of the formula of a typical Star Cinema romance film. But it does feel generic. Kathryn's acting truly saved the film. Daniel Padilla is pretty much alright but can't help not think how Kathyrn overpowers him.

    Parts of the film's dialogue feels cringe too but the film still has its impactful one-liners and lines that somehow make this watchable.…
