    The Myth of the American Sleepover

    ★★★★½

    Now this is my kind of coming of age. There isn't any like it I've ever seen. A refreshment of nostalgia. An adolescent, pubescent slice of white suburban insecurity. It's difficult to put into words the insurmountable strangeness of the film. It's a straightforward script to be clear, but the effictiveness of its simplicity, the natural performances from each character, and malaise of daily life is captured beautifully.

    ★★★★★

    I refuse to believe I'm the only fucking guy who thinks Get Out is way too highly regarded, and that meanwhile Us is The Godfather of sophomore features. Lupita creating a new slasher villain right before our fucking eyes. That couldn't possibly be a hot take.

    War of the Worlds

    ★★★★½

    All these years later, and War of the World's aggressive story of human extermination is still a brilliant highlight in Spielberg's career and arguably the most terrifying invasion film ever made. Spielberg's incredible ability to capture long wide shots and maximize the scope of the tripods within the frame creates just haunting, deeply scary imagery of tall, metal terrestrials annihilating massive populations. It's surely not to escape your brain anytime soon, and I doubt it ever will.

    ★★★★

    My girlfriend cried nearly as hard as I did when I watched Toy Story 3 for the first time.

    Pieces of a Woman

    ★★★★

    Pieces of a Woman is a tender portrait of a woman slowly fading into depression, with the best performance I've seen this year in Vanessa Kirby.

    Mank

    ★★★

    Criminally great performances, stunning black and white photography, but it feels empty, soulless, and uneventful, much like the whole of the Hollywood system. Will give a second watch at some point. A lot to consume with this one.
