  • The Lady from Shanghai

    The Lady from Shanghai

    ★★★½

    How Orson Welles is responsible for both Citizen Kane and the worst Irish accent ever is beyond comprehension.

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite

    ★★★★

    The Favourite is the crude humored, vulgar, and equally beautiful answer to Barry Lyndon you didn't know you needed, and it comes from none other than Yorgos Lanthimos, a truly bizarre filmmaker who has never seemed more comfortable putting his weirdness to work as he does in the court of Queen Anne.

  • Roma

    Roma

    ★★★★½

    A serene meditation on family, love, and the often unseen beauty of everyday life, Roma is a major cinematic accomplishment that begs to be seen in theaters. There is much to be said of its technical achievements, and there are many, though it is in the subtlety of its simple narrative turned epic that makes it such a resonant work.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★

    Freddie Mercury didn't die from living a life of sex, drugs, and rock & roll for this shit to have so little sex, drugs, and rock & roll, but, hey, at least Suicide Squad isn't the last thing to lay claim to its title track.

  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★½

    Witches ain't shit but hoes and tricks.

  • Mid90s

    Mid90s

    ★★★½

    Protect Sunny Suljic at all costs.

  • The Other Side of the Wind

    The Other Side of the Wind

    ★★★★

    Let it be known that 2018 was the year I saw the logos for both YouTube and Netflix on 35mm film.

  • Venom

    Venom

    ★½

    You can't spell Venom without no.

  • Hot Summer Nights

    Hot Summer Nights

    ★★

    If you're going to ape Paul Thomas Anderson and Martin Scorsese make sure you have 100% more Italian food and Chinese coke fiends with firecrackers on standby.

  • Taxi Driver

    Taxi Driver

    ★★★★★

    Not enough has been said about the fact that it only cost Travis Bickle $1.85 for a pack of Chuckles, a box of popcorn, a chocolate bar, and a small Royal Crown Cola.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★★

    File this one under "Films in Which Henry Cavill Demolishes a Bathroom While Fighting Someone."

  • Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★

    Jurassic World: Fallen Alseep would have been a more fitting title.

    Also they clone humans in these now.
