  • Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    ★★★

    “Valerian” has everything going for it, except the dialogue and direction is so juvenile, it’s just slightly above George Lucas Star Wars prequel levels of bad... and that’s too bad.

  • The Mind's Eye

    The Mind's Eye

    ★★★★½

    I had to watch the original. I even watched my original VHS copy from when I was 8, for extra hipster points (actually it’s because a DVD version doesn’t seem to exist). Watching it now at 34, I can’t help thinking how interesting it is that child me was really into what is essentially an abstract art film. “The Mind’s Eye” was my jam in the day.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★

    "Mad Max: Fury Road": A cross between an 80s action movie and a Slipknot music video. It's every bit as insane as it sounds and it's great.

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    I really appreciate the original "Blade Runner", but the pacing honestly bored me to death. "Blade Runner 2049" is no less slowly paced, but it's so incredibly beautiful and immersive, I never became exasperated with the pace. The story, the cast, the cinematography, the music, the design, etc, etc... are all breathtaking. This is a phenomenal modern sci-fi film.
