    Live by Night

    ★★½

    A film that feels as if it has interesting ideas to play with, but feels very bored in execution especially when it plays to the conventions of the genre instead of playing against type. The performances aren't even bad either. There is a lot of potential here, but it just feels wasted.

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★★

    Damien Chazelle does it again. La La Land is the most vibrant film I have seen this year. I think what can be undermined in this amazing musical is the fantastic colors. There is just such an amazing palette that really added to the experience. And the camera just flows so well. OH MY! And Emma Stone is amazing along with Gosling being fantastic. And the music is just brilliant.

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE! OH MY! WHAT A GREAT MOVIE!

    The Edge of Seventeen

    ★★★★½

    The Edge of Seventeen is such a surprise. It is so relatable. If Erwin was someone in real life, that would be me completely.

  • Fight Club

    Fight Club

    ★★★★★

    Fight Club just works. It feels crazy in every sense of the word, but Fincher can still keep us focused on what needs it. Fight Club again brings two great lead performances. This film is insane, but can easily feel focused at a the same time.
