    2020 spooky movies 

    Imagine Oscar Isaac in all those suits…

  • The Producers

    The Producers

    ★★

    The exact moment Matthew Broderick opened his mouth I checked out. He is doing the most in all the worst ways possible. He’s trying so hard to do Wilder without actually bringing anything to the role. Nathan Lane carries this and the 20 minutes Uma Thurman is in this she’s great, but I really wish I hadn’t wasted my time.

  • Queen & Slim

    Queen & Slim

    ★★

    Remember when Jordan Peele had an alternate ending for Get Out where Chris actually got arrested for defending himself but then changed it to Rod showing up because he thought it was too dark? Yea well this movie sure played me for a fool. Why can’t we just get movies where black people are happy just once?

    And it’s so unfortunate because this really had me. The cinematography was so lush and dreamy and the soundtrack, playing so many beloved…

  • The Stepford Wives

    The Stepford Wives

    ★★

    This movie completely stripped away Nicole Kidman’s character’s agency and gave it to Matthew Broderick to make him look like a good man that it completely contradicts its “message.” This has no grasp on what women actually want and it’s just a bunch of unfunny stereotypes that barely scratch the surface on being a commentary about how men want to control women. Two stars because of Nicole Kidman’s haircut and Bette Midler is legit funny.

  • Mojave

    Mojave

    ★★

    I still have no clue what happens in this movie but Oscar Isaac saying “WHOOPS YOU’RE FUCKED BROTHER!” has been in my head for years

  • Capone

    Capone

    ★★

    It’s about Capone’s last years dealing with dementia but never at any point did this movie feel like it was real. It never felt like there were distinguishable moments between his lunacy and the real world around him. Plus Tom Hardy’s crazy ass performance, while entertaining, doesn’t help. Honestly wish it was kind of weirder

  • The Flintstones

    The Flintstones

    ★★

    Yea it’s not that great but John Goodman and Rick Moranis are the perfect Fred and Barney

  • The Brothers Grimm

    The Brothers Grimm

    ★★

    It’s a shame this movie did not catch my attention because I love fairytales but I truly don’t know what Gilliam wants to say with this. Don’t let the story/magic die I guess? It didn’t really come off as the main message. It seemed to be more along the line of “what if the fairytales were real” and antics ensue. This movie was grotesque it’s truly unappealing aesthetically but I was mainly here for Heath Ledger and he’s always great

  • Child's Play

    Child's Play

    ★★

    I can’t get over how ugly that doll is

  • Sonic the Hedgehog

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★★

    I mean… why the excessive Olive Garden sponsor?

  • A Boy and His Dog

    A Boy and His Dog

    ★★

    How is the main character desperately seeking a woman the whole movie then turns around and feeds her to the dog in the end?
