• Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★½

    While not on the same level of something like WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, this was still a hugely enjoyable live-action/animation continuation of the animated series that’s full of charm, clever writing, hilarious in-jokes/cameos, great effects and satire. John Mulaney & Andy Samberg were great in their vocal performances as the title characters.

  • The Souvenir: Part II

    The Souvenir: Part II

    ★★

    As someone who didn’t really care for the film at all, THE SOUVENIR: PART II is even more of an emotionally distant, uninvolving and dull experience to sit through. I didn’t care about the main character or the story across this two film series. I simply just did not care at all.

    F**k around with Russell Crowe and you’ll find out.

  • Rad

    ★★★

    Very, very ‘80s… Very, very cliched… Very, very cheesy… Also very, very rad.

    Brilliant. Still just simply brilliant.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    While it could have done a bit more with its story, this was still a hugely entertaining sequel that’s even better than the first film. The cast were all great and director Sam Raimi successfully injects his signature filmmaking style to the MCU formula.

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★★

    While not amazing by any means, this was still a really entertaining and funny meta action/comedy that’s true celebration of its star Nicolas Cage. As awesome as Cage was, Pedro Pascal was the film’s MVP and their onscreen chemistry together was great. If you’re a Nic Cage fan, you’re definitely going to enjoy this.

    ★★★★

    I don’t know about anyone else, but that Rian Johnson directed STAB 8 sounds very bloody sweet.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    While I definitely need another viewing to fully process all of it, this was still a truly awesome one-of-kind sci-fi action film that’s equally entertaining, insane, ambitious, messy, hilarious, exhaustive and unique. Michelle Yeoh was fantastic.

  • Nightmare Alley

    Nightmare Alley

    ★★

    On a technical level, it’s impressive. However I found it mostly dull, distant and uninvolving. Seriously between this, PACIFIC RIM and THE SHAPE OF WATER, I’m starting to think Guillermo del Toro is losing his touch (thank goodness he made the extremely underrated CRIMSON PEAK in-between those, which is definitely his only good film since HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY). The cast were fine but Cate Blanchett was the best-in-show. She definitely understood the assignment. 

    I would suggest checking out the 1947 version starring Tyrone Power first. It’s far superior than this one.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★½

    While it’s a tad overlong and it does contain story elements that we’ve seen before in other franchise entries, Matt Reeves’ latest is still a truly fantastic Batman film that I found equal parts captivating, dark, intense, multi-layered, character/story driven and visually stunning. Robert Pattinson was brilliant in the title role. He truly inhabited the role. The supporting cast were all terrific too.

  • X

    X

    ★★★½

    While it’s nothing too new and its themes can be muddled at times, Ti West’s latest is still a well crafted ‘70s set slasher film that’s full of truly suspenseful moments, gruesome gore and a great villain. The cast were great but it’s definitely Mia Goth’s show though.
