    Crimson Peak

    ★★★★

    While certain elements don’t entirely work within the film, Crimson Peak is without a doubt a work of gothic beauty. I don’t know how Del Toro continually surrounds himself with the best set designers in the business, but each and every one of his films look spectacular. This one has the added bonus of having Mia Can’t-spell-her-last-name in it too! (Or pronounce it for that matter). 

    The costumes and sets and cinnamon-tography and lighting are all beyond beautiful. The whole…

  • The Thin Red Line

    The Thin Red Line

    ★★★★½

    Where is God in times of war? Why does he allow these things to happen? Are we not but ash, destined to an eternity of strife and conflict? Where can the beauty be found in times of destruction? What is a man?

    ★★★★½

    Avengers: Endgame literally has its cake and eats it too. They have everything. Everyone. How the Russo’s were able to wrangle positively every aspect boggled me.

    Seven Years in Tibet

    ★★★★

    I love movies that take you on a journey, and this was one I won’t soon forget. It reminded me of a movie that would have been made during the golden age of Hollywood. John Williams’s score is incredible as always, and the cinematography is grand and sweeping across the Himalayan landscape. Brad Pitt’s accent is bad, and the script is a little weak towards the beginning, but overall this film is a gorgeous and very personal adventure.
