    Baby Driver

    ★★★★

    Considering this was one of my most anticipated of the year, it certainly didn't let me down. "Baby Driver" is the first film I've seen so far this year that kept me engaged from beginning to end, besides maybe "Get Out" but that was for different reasons all together with that one.

    In all honesty, this is by far Edgar Wright's 'least Edgar Wright' film, and that isn't all bad, but it does mark a departure from what most people…

    It Comes at Night

    ★★★★½

While film's portray growing up as something sensational and how just one life event will determine your entire future and the type of person you WILL become, "Boyhood"…

  • Get Out

    Get Out

    ★★★★½

    Considering this is a 104 minute horror film, there isn't a wasted second...it all counts for something.

    Jordan Peele has created a genre piece that rivals anything a major studio is putting out now. Forget about what people are saying that a studio had "balls" to put out "A Cure For Wellness," "Get Out" is a truly ballsy release for a first time director and who someone might consider just half of a comedy duo.

    First off, Key & Peele put…
