    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★★½

    Of course it's not as good as The Shining, and it does have a bit of a slow start, but I was never bored. The acting was great, the characters were great, I was invested in the story, and I liked the soundtrack too. Doctor Sleep may not be a necessary sequel, but it did more than enough to justify its existence for me.

  • The Big Sick

    The Big Sick

    ★★★★

    I really liked this movie MUCH more than I expected, and I'm not even very sure why, but I'm giving it a high rating anyway due to the fact that I still enjoyed it so much during the rewatch. One of the best rom-coms I've seen.

    This film.... I dont even know where to start. I know this film is too much for some, but I think it's an absolutely incredible film. Joaquin Phoenix's performance was not overhyped. He gives a stellar and maybe even a career-best one here, as I didn't see Joaquin Phoenix, one of my favorite actors. No, he made me see Arthur Fleck: the mentally ill and lonely soul that goes into a tragic descent into madness and villainy. It doesnt ask…

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★★

    As a huge fan of Breakind Bad (and Better Call Saul) El Camino was a satisfying conclusion to Jesse Pinkman's story. Vince Gilligan's writing and directing is just as impressive as it was for both shows and Aaron Paul once again does an amazing job as Jesse. The cameos were great and purposeful at the same time. Overall, besides some pacing issues, I really enjoyed El Camino and I'm happy with how this story came to an end.
