    Split

    ★★★

    "With Split, it seems as if – much like the film’s villain played by James McAvoy – are multiple voices trying to get a word in edgewise. A series of varying voices fighting for “The Light” that range wildly in tone and genre. Needless to say, there isn’t a lot of consistency to be found. What is to be found is a treasure trove of oddities. Some are entertaining. Some are head scratching. All of them rarely seem to keep this story together. Yet, one can't take their eyes off it."

    "The Bye Bye Man deceptively calls itself a horror movie. A spooky series of scares that’ll deliver some kind of cheap frights.

The Bye Bye Man strives for the bare minimum to make a horror movie and fails even at that."

  • The Empire Strikes Back

    The Empire Strikes Back

    ★★★★★

    Many have claimed that The Empire Strikes Back is, in many respects, the superior film of the original Star Wars trilogy and the entire Star Wars saga as a whole (which, for the record, isn't very hard when you include those other three films in the equation). The themes are darker, the characters are fleshed out, the newer characters serve to give the universe further depth and the reveal during the climax is often cited as one of the most…

  • Short Term 12

    Short Term 12

    ★★★★★

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
