    One Night in Miami...

    ★★★½

    A bit choppy at times, it’s a film saved by it’s important message and charismatic performances across the board
    Leslie Odom Jr. as Sam Cooke is absolutely fantastic and those final moments of the film absolutely crushed me 
    Very confident debut from King, and while it feels like a debut, she certainly has power behind the camera as she does in front of it

    My full thoughts can be found right here!

    I just got super personal on my full piece available right here, but i’ll say this and hope the article speaks for itself.

    Loving life can certainly be difficult at times, but that appreciation for the minutiae of it all is the very reason why every moment can be so genuinely special. I appreciate everyone in my life, and if you read this or not, I appreciate you taking the time.

    Happy Holidays everyone, much love, Pixar once again has destroyed me.

    Some beautifully shot black and white cinematography in here, particularly the showcase cypher and the Mama May I freestyle ESPECIALLY 
    It’s a bit overlong and at times certainly feels like a debut,…

  • Hot Fuzz

    Hot Fuzz

    ★★★★½

    Without question one of the best action comedies ever made, right up there with the likes of the very films it constantly riffs off of
    Simultaneously an homage to over the top action films and buddy cop dramas, Edgar Wright injects his own signature flair into Hot Fuzz and nails all that he’s going for and more
    With an exceptional laughs per minute ratio and a bombastically over the top third across that rivals the chaos of Bad Boys II, this is a riot of a watch from start to finish

  • Sorry to Bother You

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★

    Two words to accurately sum up this film:

    BATSHIT. INSANITY

    Seriously, Boots Riley has crafted an extremely original and inventive, albeit absurd and absolutely ridiculous film about a plethora of topics, all of which are extremely relevant to our current society
    Lakeith Stanfield is a great lead and I love seeing Tessa Thompson, but Armie Hammer really steals the show with what he’s given
    Riley’s background in music shines through the great soundtrack
    The film is pretty consistent in its…
