  • Spectre

    Spectre

    ★★★★

    If the movie had a better song it would possibly be in 4.5 range. Wayyyyy fucking better than I remembered it being for the past 4 years of my life. Tonally, it’s quite different than the other Craig 007 films, but it works in its favor. Bond telling a security guard “No! Stay!” like he’s a dog is the funniest Bond moment ever I think

  • Casino Royale

    Casino Royale

    ★★★★

    Incredible first act but falls apart a bit by th- you know what who cares when you open with:

    *BUH NUH NUH NUH NUHHH, NUHNUHNUHNUHNUH
    BUH NUH, NUH NUH NUH
    BOWWW NOWNOWNOW*

    IF YOU TAKE A LIIIIIFEEEE DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’LL GIIIVEEE? ODDS ARE YOU WONT LIKE WHAT IT ISSSS. WHEN THE STORM ARRIVES, WOULD YOU BE SEEN WITH MEEEE, BY THE MERCILESS EYESSS OF DECEIT *guitar riff and drums intensifies* I’VE SEEN ANGELS FALL FROM BLINDING HEEEEEIGHHHTSS. BUT…

  • Faults

    Faults

    ★★★★

    I much prefer this to The Art of Self Defense. Great performance from Leland and seeing bald Jon Gries was an added bonus. My main complaint with this is the same complaint I have with another film that had both Leland Orser and Lance Reddick in it and that’s that there wasn’t enough Lance Reddick.

  • Rango

    Rango

    ★★★★

    2 of these 4 stars go to the wonderful “plan B” joke alone. The other 2 stars account for the wonderful score, performances and overall feel of the movie in general. You place anything in the west and I’m legally bound to give it 3 stars MINIMUM.

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    ★★★★

    Rat’s redemption is better and more earned in every single way than Ben Solo’s “redemption”.

  • The Dark Knight

    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★

    “I’m whatever Gotham needs me to be.”

    Yes a very popular quote but damn, it’s so fucking good and so in line with Batman. Also, we as a society need to recognize Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent more. The final conversation with him and Rachel is heart wrenching. 


    It’s still important you all do your part. Don’t forget to

  • Batman

    Batman

    ★★★★

    Gotham has never felt more like Gotham. I miss this much creativity being put into making the city feel like a character because Gotham has always been just that. I haven’t seen this in years and was surprised to see how damn well this holds up. 


    Also, while you’re reading, please donate if you have the means. Every bit helps.

  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar!

    ★★★★

    By far the most underrated Coen brothers film. Would make a great double feature with OUATIH. Alden Ehrenreich is a Star and should have far more praise than he gets.

  • Charlie Bartlett

    Charlie Bartlett

    ★★★★

    Anton gets taken from us at 27 while Woody Allen and Roman Polanski still get to breathe air. It’s just not fair.


    (Also this movie does have scenes with people getting high, so I celebrated 4/20 accordingly)

  • The Platform

    The Platform

    ★★★★

    What a banger of a feature debut. Falters a little in the last act and the ending but everything building up to that is incredibly well paced and mysterious. Looking forward to seeing more work from Galder in the future if they hold the same quality as this.

  • The Descent

    The Descent

    ★★★★

    A random review to drop this in, but those of you who have been asking where my accounts are I can assure you I’m just fine. Anyway, this movie fucking bangs. If they ever remake it I say Keith should be the lead.

  • Big Fish

    Big Fish

    ★★★★

    The superior Forrest Gump
