    The Doom Generation


    “Do you ever wonder why we exist?”

    “No. What for?”

  • Saltburn



    Barry Keoghan is good and Jacob Elordi is especially good, but this is chic masking illogical, obvious storytelling. Pretty images in a fruitless 4:3 aspect ratio. That's all.

    The Fabelmans


    “Life is nothing like the movies, Fabelman.”

    But you got the girl!”

    I hate school too Sam Fabelman. Everything I wanted it to be and more. Didn’t get to see Spielberg’s greatest works during their initial runs, but at least I got to see The Fabelmans (the latter part of his career is almost just as great). 

    A Spielberg movie about Spielberg is nothing if not the perfect love letter to art, particularly that greatest art in the world: cinema. But it’s also a terrifying reckoning with that art.

    John Wick: Chapter 4


    And that’s a wrap on cinema everyone. Had a good 100+ years. Everyone that contributed did wonderful, but it doesn’t get any better than this. Let’s pack it up and go home.
