    2019: Ranked (so far). 

    [Listening to the fantastic score by Hildur Guðnadóttir as I write this review (yes I had to copy paste her name)].

    There is no punch line.

    The first film to live up to my expectations this year. This is also my first IMAX experience. And what an experience it truly was.

    Joker has received one of the most diverse ratings I've seen on this site. You either love it or hate it, and apparently I fucking…

    [Director's Cut] I watched the director's cut only and I am sure it's much better than the theatrical release. I wouldn't take out any of the scenes. Everything is there for a reason. So I highly recommend you watch it likewise.

    [Mild spoilers are included]
    It's been about 22 hours since I finished watching it. I had to gather my thoughts, but most importantly, I had to gather myself. Ari Aster managed to make a film…

    ★★★½

    Been following Chris for years now. So glad to see him make his very first official short film. Took a sec for me to get warmed up to it but by the end of it I wanted more! Very good job sir. Obviously Chris has a great deal of knowledge about cinema and understands the art of storytelling, cuz it shows big! Was really pleased with some of the camera movements. The leads are adorable and great actors. Love the poster as well. Looking forward to what Stuckmann has to offer in the future.

    Chernobyl

    ★★★★½

    Suits, ties and hidden lies. If politics isn't the #1 poison in this world I don't know what is. Yes, I finally got around to watching Chernobyl. I was deeply immersed from the first episode. Every time I remember this is a true story I hurt on the inside. I can't help but feel negative about what is happening to the planet in our time. Time is precious, and it's running out. Every second counts. Watching movies/documentaries/miniseries about any catastrophe…

    The only film this year to leave me completely speechless. I am lost for words. Bong has outdone himself.

    If you are gonna push a piece of machinery to its limit, you gotta have a sene of where that limit is.

    On the way back home I was driving alone. It was about 11:30 pm. I had the window rolled down, allowing the chilly November breeze to fill up my lungs and pump me enough energy to start driving like Ken Miles. As the adrenaline rushed through my body I excitedly managed to grab my…
