    The Woman in the Window

    ★★★

    Amy Adams being underutilized by a Netflix film is not a new story; check out Hillbilly Elegy if you want to see a worse example. This film is not a bad film by any means and carries a lot of good qualities that make up for the lack of a Big Bang moment that usually accompanies a mystery story and the inconsequential row of characters that come and go like people in a shopping mall. The cinematography acts a peak into…

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★

    Spiral was marketed as being a new step forward for the infamous  film series that spawned its creation but instead takes ten steps back by leaning into torture porn and a contrived/confusing attempt at social commentary. The appeal of the diabolical games Jigsaw put people through in his films while being gruesome and hard to watch, it also gave meaning to the appreciation and fickle nature of life that humans have come to take for granted in the eyes of a man…

    Bound

    ★★★★

    The attitude and style of a 1950s noir thriller with the added bonus of strong female characters who use their often marginalized place in society to their advantage in turning the tables on the powerful criminal outfit knows as the Mob. The use of the camera makes great use of the few locations that are seen and carried plenty of obsession with aerial shots that acts as a eye in the sky into a apartment building with thin walls. Stakes…

    Good Burger

    ★★★

    The ridiculousness and aloof nature of the comedy is turned to a level 11 out of 10 but yet is able to win so many laughs due to the fun factor easily apparent in the  good nature whimsical narrative and performances of the actors. Keenan and Kel were in the pop culture lexicon and the material children gorged themselves on in the late 90s Nickelodeon mania. Bonafide chemistry and timing come across their buddy dynamic and powers up the film…

    Two Distant Strangers

    Engaging in commentary on police brutality and the fear that African Americans have to live with every day under the blanket of white supremacy by using a Groundhog Day narrative not only shows how out of touch this Oscar nominee is but it also disrespectful to the lives that have been lost over these circumstances. The end credits show a constant stream of African American victims of police brutality trying to promote itself as a memorial to those names; in actuality,…

  • Joker

    Joker

    ★★★★★

    Joker is a shake up to the comic book genre that will reverberate and makes its impact felt for the foreseeable future. Holds up a grim and disturbing microscope to the current divided state of unrest that is infecting our present day. Todd Phillps is not asking you to be sympathetic for the Clown Prince of Crime; he shows us the ramifications of a broken society on the invisible and less fortunate who need than just medications to feel something…
