    Werewolves Within

    ★★★

    Werewolves Within is an enjoyable comedic thriller with a charismatic cast and lots of clever dialogue that takes some pages out of Clue. Sam Richardson and Milana Vayntrub showcase their talent especially well and I look forward to seeing more from both of them. My biggest issue is that this is barely a werewolf movie and by the time anything remotely resembling a werewolf appears, the credits are about to roll. This is a solidly funny murder mystery that ends…

    Psycho Goreman

    ★★★½

    Psycho Goreman combines so many wonderfully insane concepts into a wildly entertaining adventure riddled with carnage and hilarity. It pushes every dollar of its limited budget and the result is an inspiring display of practical effects and costumes that are some of the most imaginative I've seen in awhile. The humor is perfectly balanced and incredibly dry at times which delightfully contrasts the film's bombastic visuals. I was reminded of The Monster Squad, Suburban Commando, Masters of the Universe, and Galaxy Quest, but Psycho Goreman also takes full advantage of its R-rating making it an utter joy to watch.

Steppenwolf’s character development is another noticeable improvement and I found myself far more invested in his plight this time around. Cyborg and the Flash feel more rounded as well which infuses the Justice League with a…

    Tenet

    ★★½

    No.

    Christopher Nolan has reached the point of believing he's created his own cinematic language and the audience just needs to catch up with him. Tenet is such a frustratingly complicated movie wrapped around a big old MacGuffin-y plot that only exists because the characters insist it's happening through unending expository dialogue. Tenet has tons of style and I actually liked Ludwig Gorannson's score, but this might be Nolan's most clinical and presumptuous film to date. Thank Christ for subtitles as well, because I would have missed half of the script without them.
