    "Directed by Sam Raimi." Yeah, right...

    Goddamn it, they just keep getting worse. I was originally going to give this a 1.5, but then I thought there's no way this is only half a star better than "Morbius." What I decided that meant is: either I rated "Morbius" too high with its single star, or this too low with a 1.5. I ended up deciding to give this another half a star because it's definitely not worse than "Eternals."

    Bringing Out the Dead

    ★★★★½

    This is definitely one of Scorsese's darkest films, and it's presented damn near perfectly with Paul Schrader's pessimistic script and a tired, exhausted, and zany performance from Nicolas Cage.

After seeing it, I have a lot of thoughts. I…

    I really honestly don't think I have seen a film this innovative, this creative, this heartfelt, this sweet, or this fucking insane in a long, long time.

    The movie starts off REALLY fast. Right off the bat, you notice that this film moves at a breakneck pace. At first, it's a little disorienting and a little hard to get adjusted to, but there's never a point where you feel lost in what's actually happening. Then all of the actual multiverse…
