    ★★★

    After several false starts, I finally convinced myself to commit to a showtime. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a bit ill, but this wasn’t the uproarious satire I was promised. There’s a couple of really poignant moments sprinkled throughout that should be noted, but there are also huge tonal shifts that took me out of the experience and left me a bit delirious. Did not laugh once, despite others around me doing so. It felt wrong, no matter…

    ★★★

    I don’t remember the year, but my mom is the one that introduced me to The Terminator. We rented it from Blockbuster and she sat me and my brother down to watch it. It frightened and excited me. My biggest question coming out of it of course was why they came back naked. She didn’t have an answer. Terminator 2 was next and in 2003 I saw my first R-rated movie in the theater: Terminator 3.

    ★★★★

    The trailer made it look like some zombie b-movie, but I’m actually surprised that this was not just good, but pretty fucking amazing! The opening scene is the most intense thing I’ve seen all year - even more so than the opening scene of Widows. The whole movie is super loud which just adds to the intensity of the whole production. Non-stop action seasoned with some tasty body horror and a pretty awesome score. Hell yes!

    ★★★★½

    Perfect companion piece to Damien Chazelle’s First Man. So perfect in fact, that there are a couple moments where you could splice in a good chunk of Chazelle’s biopic to supplement scenes from the actual footage. What i really appreciated about this documentary though is that it saves us the retelling of the preparation for the mission and starts us off about 2 hours before lift-off. The 70mm footage is beautifully restored. So crisp and clean as if it were shot today. You really owe it to yourself to experience this film.
