    The Meg

    ★★

    Underwater cheese. I’m not always for these crazy, bigger-than-life movies, especially with Jason Statham starring in it, but I just couldn’t resist seeing this potential B-movie masterpiece. This could’ve been one of the more entertaining films of the summer, but alas it fell into sloppiness and not the right stupid humor. I didn’t realize that this film was going for a major Chinese market, but it became very clear once subtitles started popping onto the screen with several Chinese characters.…

    ★★★★½

    Giving up what you love most can be painful. I’ve been wanting to see this for quite some time now, and I finally got a chance to see it. I loved the trailer that was released for the film, and along with widespread acclaim I couldn’t wait to take this movie in. This is an absolutely beautiful film both visually and from a story standpoint, and Chloé Zhao delivers one of the best films of the year. I only gathered…

    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★★½

    What would Fred Rogers do? Watched this with my mom last night, she was upset that I watched it the first time without her even though she never goes to the theater. This film was made specifically for my mom’s generation. She was born the same year the first season aired, so she grew up watching Fred Rogers. Daniel is one of her favorite names because of the lovable tiger. My mom cried many times during the film, which was…

    ★★★

    What to do, indeed. Winnie the Pooh is one of the biggest parts of my very early childhood, so much so that my nickname from my mom is Pooh Bear. I can vividly remember The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and when the teaser trailer for Christopher Robin was released I couldn’t have been more excited. I thought the casting of Ewan McGregor as an older Christopher Robin was fantastic, and it was interesting to see all of the…

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★½

    All power to all people. One of my most anticipated films for the second half of 2018, I was really looking forward to seeing what the great Spike Lee would be delivering. The promotional material has been fantastic, and a hilarious premise had me very intrigued. Luckily there was a one theater-showing near me to see it Monday at my local Dolby Theater. I decided to ditch the sloppy MoviePass and instead sign up for AMC A-List, and I’m so…

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★★

    The innocence of adolescence. A24 has been on the money with its wide-release films so far this year, and I was prepared for Eighth Grade to completely blow me away. I’ve enjoyed Bo Burnham’s work before, I believe he’s a very smart and clever musician and his comedy is very fresh compared to a lot of comedy released today. I had a great feeling that he was capable of something stellar, and all I can say is that Eighth Grade
