    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★★★

    Spiral was my first theatrical Saw experience, and one that I'll never forget. Taking place almost entirely from the police perspective, this feels very different from the rest of the bunch while still having its direct ties; and that's what made it so good. This wasn't the same thing for the ninth time, and when those gory traps finally played out on screen, they were extremely fulfilling.

    I love this as a legacy sequel because it isn't completely reliant on…

  • The Blazing World

    The Blazing World

    ★★★★★

    My most anticipated from the festival, and definitely one of my favorites. Carlson Young brings us to a world similar to Alice in Wonderland and any work of David Lynch, and does so in an ambitious way. I genuinely had a great time with this, and I believe that this is an extremely solid and quite stunning directorial debut. The Blazing World is an impressive and stand-out take on mental health and self-destruction after trauma, and I'm looking forward to see what stories she has to tell in the future.

  • Halloween

    Halloween

    ★★★★

    Rob Zombie's Halloween is actually a fairly decent remake, bringing the franchise to the late 2000s with a much scarier Michael Myers than ever before. Scout Taylor-Compton steps in as Laurie Strode flawlessly, and the character dynamics between her and her friends, and her and her parents added a lot to the grim atmosphere. That being said, Rob Zombie is nowhere near my favorite director, and some decisions he made for this director's cut will never sit right with me.…

  • Infinite

    Infinite

    Paramount+ is actually a pretty good streaming service when it comes to variety -- they have tons of films plucked right from their catalog along with a decent amount of reality, nostalgic, and new original series to enjoy. For their first original movie, however, it's a total flop.

    Infinite was dreadfully boring on top of sloppy writing and generic action sequences. The only bit I really had fun with was Dylan O'Brien's character in the opening scene. This certainly has its audience, but that isn't me -- I don't even think I'd have a good time if this went theatrical like planned.

  • Euphoria: Trouble Don't Last Always

    Euphoria: Trouble Don't Last Always

    ★★★★½

    Not only did this episode bring back the hype for Euphoria, but it opened up some very important discussions and was able to play around with a new pace and style before the second season arrives. I'm amazed by the performances here, and how invested I was watching Rue and Ali bounce dialogue between each other. So excited for Part 2.

  • In The Heights

    In The Heights

    ★★★

    I only watched In The Heights to see Melissa Barrera before she makes her highly anticipated Scream franchise debut, and she was so so so good here. I'm never really big on musicals but there were some numbers that caught my attention, and seeing how much this film means to some people is actually really sweet. Definitely could've used less of Lin-Manuel Miranda, though...
