    ★★★

    Enjoyable when it revels in its B movie roots, but often takes itself too seriously causing a conflict in tone. Those final 20 minutes are ace though.

    Unfriended: Dark Web

    ★★★½

    The story takes its time in building the suspense and creating characters that are worth investing your time in, culminating in an exploding third act that ratchets the tension up to 11. I’m very mixed on the ending and I apparently got the “good” ending compared to the alternate one. I read up on the alternate version and I’m not a fan of that one either. Still, the journey makes the ride worth taking anyway.

    I would love to see Adam Sandler return to offbeat comedies. Paul Thomas Anderson has written a role so tailor-made for Sandler..it's almost scary how perfect the writing is. The ambient, chaotic sounds that form the score encapsulates this crazy beautiful relationship perfectly. I need to watch this film again, immediately.

    A great story filled with fantastic performances from Robin Williams and the students. The story is captivating, a bit depressing, but also inspiring. This movie is poetry on film. A powerful film that everyone needs to see. Carpe diem.
