    Honey Boy

    ★★★½

    "Why won't you hold my hand?"

    A nice little movie about trauma and the bettering of one's self, with a range of decent to great performances. It was more or less what I wanted and expected from it -- it made me happy, sad; just a bunch of emotions.

    Shia LaBeouf wrote the film based on his own life, and he plays his father in the film. His performance was probably the best, and it's really his movie, even though he didn't direct it.

    Either way, it's a good movie. I would recommend, and I might even check it out a second time!

    "Hello. This is Gondo Speaking."

    The plot is starting to feel a bit transparent, but goddamn if the ''O Sole Mio'' segment isn't one of the best uses of music ever!

    After Hours

    ★★★★

    Good: The payoffs in this film are pretty great. I really enjoyed the second half when things start coming together. The editing, music and cinematography are also really well done and help pull off the odd vibe it was going for.

    Bad: While the payoffs are amazing, the setups aren't really. The first half of the movie felt like a collection of short stories or something. And since there wasn't really any link between anything, the repetitiveness did make the film drag a bit.

    Overall, it's a really fun and satisfying movie. Watch it with a buddy.

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★½

    Breaking Bad is one of my favorite shows ever, and Jesse was one of my favorite characters within that show. Naturally, I was excited to see this, even though it was necessary in any way.

    I guess I feel both underwhelmed and satisfied at the same time. Jesse Pinkman finally achieves freedom. Granted, it was what I assumed happened when I finished the show. I really loved the way they handled this character.

    Personally, the fan service didn't really work…
