  • The Commuter

    The Commuter

    ★★★

    Reminded me of one of those point-and-click Mac OS games where you interact with third-rate LA actors who drop hints like “the man in the dark suit is not who he seems. Check the next train car...and be careful!”

    I don’t care if Liam Nelson is on a plane or train or punching wolves in a tundra. Give me some Liam action in the dregs of January and I’m *good*. Liam in January is something we can all rely on.

  • Phantom Thread

    Phantom Thread

    ★★★★★

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

    Reynolds Woodcock needs a mother. Alma needs to be in control. They make a perfect couple who can’t stand one another on the surface, and yet, if the circumstances are right, and enough sacrifices are made, they can each provide exactly what the other so desperately requires.  It’s all pretty fucked up. 


    Phantom Thread is an in(toxic)ating love story - the likes of which I’ve never seen before on screen.

    A Balloon For Ben

    Hey Ben,

    I'm Ben.

    Hope you're enjoying your balloon.

    I was on Cineplex screens for over a year before you came along. You know how many magical balloons I got during my time there? None.
