    Another strong effort from Jordan Peele, and much like his previous two movies I'm certain that I will enjoy this even more with subsequent viewings. I've already seen a few reviews compare this with Jaws and I think that mostly works. Peele does a great job to keep the mystery going as long as he possibly can, while also clearly indicating what we are facing pretty early on. Both Kaluuya and Palmer are a lot of fun to watch. They…

    Oasis: Knebworth 1996

    ★★★★

    The owner of Knebworth says pretty early on that he hasn't heard many Oasis songs before, but will probably be a big fan by the end of the weekend, and watching the doc I thought anyone who watches this movie will probably be a fan by the end of it as well.

    Although I am a fan, even if I wasn't, the meteoric rise of Oasis in such a short time is an infinitely fascinating story (probably why there are…

    Between this and Shiva Baby I think I've fallen a little in love with Rachel Sennott.

    There are definitely moments and references that made me feel a lot older than I actually am, but for the most part I thought this was a really fun look at/critic of a generation while using all the trappings of a tried and true genre. The movie really succeeds or fails based on this cast, and I think they were all wonderful. So much…

    Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage

    ★★★½

    Does a good job of setting up why the eventual outcome was really the only outcome that was ever going to happen. It's honestly dizzying how many issues there were with the festival before they even let people into the venue, let alone after people started getting dehydrated, sexually assaulted, and a million other things that exacerbated the event. It was a powder keg, and they were so ill prepared for what they were about to unleash, and lots of…

    Mank

    ★★★★

    I've said it before, but a David Fincher movie is like comfort food to me. It's such a delight to just watch someone who is so good at what they do. Thankfully Mank seems almost completely uninterested in the Raising Kane debate. In fact, this has far more to do with Fincher's own trials and tribulations trying to work in the Hollywood system than it does with who authored the movie.

    I'll try and not say too much because I…
