    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    James Gunn is truly one of a kind. 
    Anarchy meets aesthetic greatness filled with unapologetic humor. Margot shows her best Quinn to date and Daniela Melchior totally steals the show as Ratcatcher 2. This may be the rise of a new DC cinematic landscape.

    If you take Gal Gadot out of the equation, this could possibly be the worst super hero movie of all time. Yes, I’m including Green Lantern.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★½

    1 Star for Pattinson, 1 Star for Washington.

    It’s one thing to write a fresh concept that somehow confuses the audience. Another is to write a piece for the sake of being confusing. When you try at all cost to be out of the box and that becomes the center of your whole script, you get an empty plot with great actors struggling to keep up. 

    Covid kept me away from the theaters for a while and I thought Nolan would make it all worth. Man, I was wrong.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    “Endgame” is more than just a movie. It is an emotional event — a reward for loyalty, as well as a promise of new things to come.

    Underlying it all is a foundation about family — all kinds — people who are united by a common cause or by blood. If I’m sounding a bit vague, I have a solid reason. I do not want to give anything away that might spoil the film for anyone.

    The heart of “Endgame” rests…

  • A Star Is Born

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★

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

    The first question you need to ask yourself is: are you ready for good music and a broken heart? 

    “A Star Is Born” is very much a product of our times. Jackson Maine’s troubles date back to a wretched childhood, guaranteeing our pity and love, whereas Fredric March and James Mason gave him the nasty and dangerous edge. Cooper’s camera crowds the characters, getting in their faces, and the dialogue is determinedly foul with oaths: “If you don’t dig deep…

  • Before Sunset

    Before Sunset

    ★★★★★

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

    I’ve been delaying the viewing of this trilogy for quite some time now, and I must say I profoundly regret it. Linklater accomplishes what so many others attempted to do regarding a love story: Authenticity — everything feels real and tangible in a non-vomiting way. 

    "Before Sunrise" was an outstanding celebration of youth, passion and fascination for good dialogue. "Before Sunset" is better. Perhaps because the characters are older and wiser, perhaps because they have way more to lose now or…

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl

    ★★★★

    The less you know about Gone Girl going in the better, but even knowing what’s ahead doesn’t prepare you for the movie’s tone, which is funny yet curdled and cynical and black. This is a satirical antidote to the feel-good pap most Hollywood movies about relationships push on their audiences - here’s the perfect date movie for someone you want to break up with.
