  • Let Them All Talk

    Let Them All Talk

    ★★★½

    Lucas Hedges, Karen may not love you, but I...I will!!

  • The King of Staten Island

    The King of Staten Island

    ★★★½

    An authentic, great start to Pete Davidson's acting career. Some unnecessary plot points and some screen time could've been cut, but it really fascinates me seeing Davidson and Steve Buscemi together on screen. In 50 years I could see Davidson taking roles much like Buscemi's to a greater scale.

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    MCU Rewatch (in chronological order)

    People shit on this film way too much. Sure, it's average...but it is re-watchable and has important moments that contribute to the overall story of the MCU.

  • Iron Man

    Iron Man

    ★★★½

    MCU Rewatch (in chronological order):

    Iron Man is a fun film because of the aura of Tony Stark. Normally the standard superhero is a mystery - but not Iron Man. It's a good blend of fun and action, and despite some dumb plot points (the only reason he gets a partner in the cave is for him to die minutes later) it's a good debut film for the hero.

  • Don't F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer

    Don't F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer

    ★★★½

    A fascinating story about how you can take the smallest little detail and through the Internet find a vast answer. And although this documentary is extremely compelling and develops interesting characters through their unique Internet avatars, I feel like it leaves quite a bit unanswered. Also after doing some quick research on this Luca guy...WHAT THE FUCK!! I wish they included more about him because man, he's a lot worse than what this series makes of him.

    Also the last minute of this takes away a ton of credit for what they tried to do.

  • You're Next

    You're Next

    Finally a film where the lead woman has no horror troupe.

  • Bird Box

    Bird Box

    Average. Added an extra half-star because I, too, cannot stand kids.

  • The Strangers: Prey at Night

    The Strangers: Prey at Night

    Classic horror, but a bit duller than the original, even with it's neon color palette.

  • Mary Queen of Scots

    Mary Queen of Scots

    Nice cameo from Margot Robbie.

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    An authentic and eye-opening film of the harsh reality of growing up. The prequel to the superior "Lady Bird".

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    Film will certainly feel alive with Ari Aster in it.

  • Toy Story 2

    Toy Story 2

    An eye-opening story into the world of toy collectors and resellers, Toy Story 2 is a sequel that may not be as good as the original, but sure is a film that introduces new characters to care about.
