    ★★★

    I wish I could have liked this more. 

    This is a film full of incredible moments: decapitations, a multitude of entertaining action scenes, quiet moments of ambience, sexuality, and snakes. It has production design that injects practicality to its world and a musical score that gets the blood pumping. So why does so much of this movie feel like it lacks a pulse?

    Chainsaw Man

    ★★★★

    King Kong

    ★★★★★

    I could probably write 30 pages about why King Kong is my favorite film, but for now I'll keep this as brief as possible. I saw it when I was young and it captured my imagination like nothing else, likely because of the spectacular action scenes. The action scenes are unmistakably jaw-dropping, but as an adult, I feel I can appreciate the film even further. Not only is King Kong an exceptional adventure film, it is an outright masterpiece of…
