  • Tropic Thunder

    Tropic Thunder

    ★★★★★

    One of my all-time favorite comedies. The hysterical dialogue, the balls to the wall action, the tremendous size and comedic talent of the cast, everything is top-notch.

  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★★

    "I know now why you cry. But it's something I can never do."

    Fuck, it gets me every time.

  • The Wolf House

    The Wolf House

    ★★½

    The stop-motion animation is unquestionably amazing, but the The Wolf House's barely comprehensible narrative drags down the film has a whole. I really, really wanted to like this, but I just couldn't.

  • The Haunting

    The Haunting

    ★★★★½

    Half poignant family drama, half chilling ghost story, Haunting of Hill House is incredibly effective at both scaring you senseless and crippling you emotionally. The story takes place in three different periods of time in the lives of a family that were forever changed after living in the titular home, and puts in a great deal of effort to ensure that you care about them, making the terror that surrounds them even more impactful.

  • The Lovebirds

    The Lovebirds

    ★★★

    I was really hoping to love The Lovebirds. Sadly, I didn't. It's a completely passable, but ultimately forgettable comedy caper. Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani are great together, but can only do so much with the mostly predictable and generic writing. I probably would've enjoyed it more if the first trailer hadn't featured almost all of the movie's best jokes and gags.
