    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★½

    You know what? In the Age of Trump a movie by Barry Jenkins about using Live to get through the hardships of life is just what I need. Being a James Baldwin adaptation it would be a lie to say this doesn’t have a shadow somberness to it. Even still Jenkins insistence that “Love will get us through the hard times” is the exact push we- I need in these dark times.

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

    A nigh perfect film with gorgeous nightmarish visuals. The performances are top notch and everyone here feels fully formed. That Bear sequence is chilling. Definitely one of the best sci fi flicks of the past few years.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    This deserves to be seen on the biggest screen possible. It’s that damn good. I’m not the biggest Spider-Man fan, but damn do I want to see more and more of Miles Morales. It’s tonally fantastic making you laugh, cry, and cheer within seconds of each other. It’s my favorite superhero film of 2018 and pretty much my favorite film of the year. It’s damn good. Your doing it wrong if you see it only once. Go as many times as you can, then take a friend. Then take their friend. Then buy it on DVD. Spiderverse fucking owns.

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★

    I can’t say for sure that I liked it..but I respected it? Not really..enjoyable...but there’s loads to unpack and stuff to rip apart and study. It’s beautiful in a way while also being shot somewhat...pornographically. And it’s not pornographic in the slightest but the way she just picks up random guys is kinda..unsettling. Probably the best word for this..unsettling. And weird. Also don’t look for whys or look for answers. You won’t get them. I recommend.  Need to rewatch.
