    The Goldfinch

    ★½

    Yikes this was boring and awfully executed. I had high hopes because of that incredible trailer and while the story was pretty good, the execution was terrible.

  • It Chapter Two

    It Chapter Two

    ★★★

    About an hour longer than it should be, but still surprisingly very entertaining all throughout. Way too funny for a “horror movie” but also weird af.

  • Brittany Runs a Marathon

    Brittany Runs a Marathon

    ★★★

    If you’re looking for a solid feel-good movie, this should definitely scratch that itch.

  • Ready or Not

    Ready or Not

    ★★★★

    Probably one of my favorite movies of the year. Super entertaining, hilarious, gory as hell, and with an insane number of twists.

  • The Matrix

    The Matrix

    ★★★★

    Finally watched this. Very fun, very “cool”. Lots of exposition, but it’s 1999 so I’ll allow it.

  • Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    ★★★

    Very entertaining from start to finish. There were little to no surprises or “twists” which was kinda disappointing, but still a solid airplane movie.

    And Pikachu is adorable.

  • Shazam!

    Shazam!

    ★★★★

    Woah I did not expect to love this, but it is remarkably solid, funny, emotional, and ridiculously fun. The entire final act has one of the most creative climaxes I’ve seen in a superhero movie in a long time.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    The Art of Racing in the Rain

    This ended up being much worse than the trailer let on. It crammed a whole LOT in less than 2 hours, and I felt absolutely nothing the entire time.

    This is NOTHING like Marley & Me.

  • Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★★

    At this point, you only have yourself to blame if you don’t know what to expect from these movies. And that’s anything BUT street car racing.

    With that said, this was fun.

  • Money Monster

    Money Monster

    ★★★★

    Severely underrated. This one still gets to me every time.

  • Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

    Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

    ★★★★

    It’s obvious ASP came back to write the Season 7 she always envisioned; a lot of it didn’t work (why is Rory still struggling?!) but I’ll admit most of it did work. Emily’s entire storyline is one of the best things that’s ever happened on television, and while so many criticized the famous “last four words”, I thought they were inspired.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★½

    I don't get the hype.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the horror genre, but this seemed intriguing enough at first. Sadly, it turned into a complete mess halfway through. I kept thinking "what's the point of all of this? what is this even about?"
