    Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

    feel conflicted on this. great performances but the look of the movie didn't sit right with me nor did some of the editing choices. i was really impressed with some of the writing but ultimately found the non-linear storytelling to become an irritant. wasn't really a big fan of how it ended.

    marisa tomei didn't have anything to do character wise. not that she's not good, but her character let me down and i wish she had been developed more.

  • This Is England

    This Is England

    ★★★★½

    this is probably one of the top 5 most well acted films ever made. it feels so raw and real, if it weren't for recognizable actor's of today you could pass this off as something truly from the era in which it's set.

    every conversation and interaction feels so organic. the look is perfect and accurate and gritty.

    it falters for me slightly in it's conclusion, i wish there was more wrapping up (but there is at least the show set after this that continues it) but ultimately this is a pretty perfect and incredibly moving film.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Best of the series, top 3 of the decade (for action) and one of the best action films ever made.

  • Deadpool

    Deadpool

    ★★★★

    Deadpool is not a perfect movie, it is however a pretty good one. Repeat viewings may garner me to lower the rating slightly but as it stands, I had a lot of fun with Deadpool.

    The jokes at times are hit or miss, but several stand out scenes really work. The action is consistently great with a great blend of cgi and practical work. Chock full of x-men and comic book movie references, as well as a pretty good blend…
