    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    ★★★★

    In recent years we have been blessed with the welcome revival of the whodunit murder mystery. A beloved sub-genre of thriller films that has been sorely neglected by Hollywood for decades. The biggest highlight in this recent boom has hands-down been the 2019 smash hit, Knives Out. This wholly original and captivating movie seamlessly weaved together detective noir tropes with murder mystery elements along side a sensational comedic tone. While it might’ve been neglected by the awards circuit far too…

    The Fabelmans

    ★★★★½

    “Passion is an incredibly powerful emotion. It’s an expression of one’s self in which we proudly display to the world who we are and what we stand for. Many films have tackled passions, or even obsessions, over the years. But with The Fabelmans we get one of the best representations of budding passion that we’ve maybe ever seen in film. This coming-of-age story shows us how the seeds of passion can be planted and fostered to bloom into a life-defining…

    Blood Simple

    ★★★★

    Almost 40 years after its release, Blood Simple still holds up as a tremendous crime thriller steeped in atmosphere and paranoia that rightfully put the Coen Brothers on the map.

    Written by the Brothers Coen, directed by Joel, this movie has a ton of substance to dig into. There’s so much to chew on, from the tension, to the cinematography, to the excellent performances. I mean, this prominently features two of my all-time favorite character actors in Dan Hedaya and M…

    Police Academy

    ★★★

    Yet another movie that Boomers touted as one of the pinnacles of comedy in the ‘80s that when you go back and rewatch it now just doesn’t hold up in the slightest. Even beyond the jokes that are either homophobic or racist, most of jokes are just not funny. There are some instances that definitely instill a chuckle or two, but it’s not the riot that your parents promised that it would be.

    Police Academy will always hold a place…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    There’s just no way it could live up to the hype, right? As of my first viewing of this flick, and posting of this review, this is the number one narrative feature film on Lettterboxd of all time. All. Time. There’s just no way this could be that good, yeah? It’s clearly just inflated limited screening reviews generating positive word of mouth and a desire to not feel left out, nothing more. But… but what if it was good? No,…

    Lightyear

    ★★½

    As I walked out of the theater after taking in Pixar’s newest feature, Lightyear, I’m left with two very distinct thoughts. One, Pixar needs to lay Toy Story, and any subsequent spin-offs, to rest. They have made too many of these movies now and have forgotten the core characteristics of one of the franchise’s primary characters. If you can’t even keep your own characters consistent, it’s time to put a pause on the franchise. Two, there is no fucking chance…
