  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★★

    It is increasingly rare to come across a unique horror film. Tiresome tropes such as vampires, zombies, and psychopaths (while still effective when properly executed) are causing many viewers to grow weary with the genre. The world of cinema needs a horror movie with terse intelligence, intense emotion, and refreshing originality. A horror film with sensational performances, first-class direction, and themes that are as beautiful as they are sad. It’s almost as if John Krasinski heard the silent cries of…

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    This is it. The culmination of 11 years and 22 films of deftly placed cinematic groundwork. We’ve had three Avengers films before this. Three films each for Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor. Two films each for Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. A Spider-Man film. A Black Panther film. A Captain Marvel film. And more.

  • Hubie Halloween

    Hubie Halloween

    ★★½

    Hubie Halloween is jam-packed with familiar faces, and while the latest Adam Sandler comedy offers some chuckles, the central storyline is not very interesting - making the final product feel average at best.

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★½

    Even moreso than Jack Nicholson's all-time performance as Randle McMurphy, the greatest strength of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is its life force - every scene brimming with heart, anguish, hope, or sometimes all three. Miloš Forman's film benefits from a brilliant script, phenomenal characters, and a truly memorable final act.

  • A.I. Artificial Intelligence

    A.I. Artificial Intelligence

    ★★★★½

    While the film's midsection feels jumbled ever so slightly, A.I. Artificial Intelligence is yet another visually stunning, wholly inventive, emotionally resonant sci-fi classic from the great Steven Spielberg.

  • Escape From Alcatraz

    Escape From Alcatraz

    ★★★★

    While a bit too minimalistic for its own good, Escape from Alcatraz benefits from a charismatic-as-ever Clint Eastwood in the lead role, witty dialogue, an engaging atmosphere and solid performances all-around.
