    Arachnophobia

    ★★★½

    This film is terrifying. I am terrified of spiders, from the tiny to, well, I guess huge but the only ones I’ve ever encountered wouldn’t exactly be considered big I guess but enough to give me a mini stroke. I too would burn my house down and think about the consequences after. As long as it killed the spider. Which I’d definitely get someone else to...

    The Borrowers

    ★½

    Aquaman

    ★★★★

    I had very high hopes for Aquaman, and my hopes were met, not exceeded. 
    Some quick thoughts...

    It’s a beautiful film to watch and there’s a great soundtrack to boot.

    Momoa and Heard work very well together and have great chemistry. The action scenes are wonderful and plentiful. 

    Was it as serious as I would’ve liked? No
    Is it kick ass and lots of fun? Definitely 

    I can’t wait to see it again.
