    Bones and All

    ★★★★½

    If you wanted to see Raw as a road trip romance with Timothée Chalamet, Luca Guadagnino has you covered. Bones and All blends the meandering tenderness of Call Me by Your Name with the grotesqueness of Suspiria to create a beautifully twisted painting of innocence shattering and love piecing it back together. There are two notable moments in here that are so effective and shocking, and an ending in true Guadagnino fashion that moved me to tears. This one’s for the sickos, the forgotten, and the scarred, but it’s also for the romantics (if you can stomach it).

    ★★★★

    A dazzlingly eclectic albeit (unsurprisingly) shallow odyssey of one of the most beloved performers of all time. Expect the Baz Luhrmann special - aggressively frenetic editing and a flashy stylistic choice made whenever possible (one man’s trash - I loved it). Some sequences in here are absolutely bonkers and intoxicating, full on goosebumps for five minutes, partially from Baz but ultimately because Austin Butler gives an Oscar-worthy performance that you swear is the real thing in certain moments. The highs are high, but the lows will really sober you up. This doesn’t even scratch the surface of what there is to say but video soon!

    ★★★

    Home for thanksgiving so back in my element of watching dad movies with dad. It’s frustrating that the writers couldn’t pull this off because the concept had potential to be a Minority Report style sci-fi epic, and Joseph Kosinski knows how to make a really fucking sleek looking movie. Needed 90% more Scavs and 90% less of whatever Olga Kurylenko was doing (sorry. I wish her and Andrea Riseborough were in opposite roles). It’s best when it’s pretending it’s a video game. Anyways, I still love shit like this and there’s lots to appreciate, just beware of a messy script and frequently laughable dialogue.

    Personally, i would have simply not climbed to the top of the 2,000 foot tower with a sign that says “NO TRESPASSING DANGER OF DEATH” without alerting anyone to where i was. That’s just me tho

  • Bullet Train

    Bullet Train

    ★★★½

    You know what, it’s an original, ambitious action comedy that has VERY consistent tone and pacing, actual themes (i mean, they’re definitely there), looks good, has tight action, occasional early Guy Ritchie vibes, and an excellent cast who all came to play. Is it kind of a mess? Yes. Do the jokes always land? God no. Was I getting sick of Brad Pitt’s character? A little! Did I learn too much Thomas the Tank Engine lore? Maybe! But god dammit…
