    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I enjoyed Covenant for what it was, a Prometheus sequel with a few new Xenomorphs to boast that I didn't hate. It never had to be just the one for me. I like the variety.

  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets

    Detachment

    ★★★★★

    Like the movie, this review is hard to get through.

    Some movies are like a storm. There is the calm before the storm, the first gusts, the eye, and then the final tempest rolls through. Like a storm, Detachment whisks you on a directionless emotional flight. When you've finally been put back on the ground, you are just as lost as you were in the air.

    This is a consequential movie that has left me breathless, broken and despondent. If I judge my film of the year based on emotional response, this one might just have it.

  • She and Her Cat: Their Standing Points

    She and Her Cat: Their Standing Points

    ★★★★

    Who knew cats were so poetic?

    Please seek out the original version of this short. The fandub just doesn't seem to fit correctly.
