    Outside the Wire

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

    Clichéd and poorly paced, this movie is pretty much only good for some decent effects and action sequences, and a cool looking android (only for ~5 minutes of the movie, though). If you've ever watched that M&M scene in movie theaters when they tell you to put your phones away while a huge red timer is counting down the missile launch, then the climax of this movie won't break any new ground either.

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    ★★★★

    First off, the cinematography and soundtrack in this movie is spectacular. Most of the scenes are an absolute joy to look at. I legitimately started looking at ticket costs for some of the amazing places Walter went in this movie just because the stunning shots just came one after the other.

While not very subtle, this movie has a solid and well intentioned emotional message, boiling down the the motto of the real Life magazine.

    All in all, highly recommend. Unless you hate other countries and beautiful views, you'll enjoy this movie.

Every actor portrays the…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    Really loved how the movie consistently maintained the uncomfortable vibe. The camera effects and visuals called back to Mandy (toned down, obv) and definitely enhanced the film for me. The normalization of the violent behavior through the sound design and cult members' reactions was very well done, and positioning the cult as a new family for Dani allowed this film to throw away the traditional protagonist/antagonist relationship and portray both sides in a balanced way. Great film!
