  • The Miseducation of Cameron Post

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post

    ★★★★

    Conversion camps can be harmful. There was a decent amount of buzz coming into this film, and I had a chance to see it in theaters. The theater I was originally going to see it in was the same theater I saw Never Goin’ Back in, so I was traumatized from that movie and I didn’t want the same to happen with Miseducation. Chloë Grace Moretz and I have had a love/hate relationship, with her one scene in this year’s…

  • Creed II

    Creed II

    ★★★½

    Fulfilling your father’s legacy. I wasn’t particularly interested in a Creed sequel, especially since Ryan Coogler wasn’t returning to direct and the trailers didn't reel me in. This movie has been getting some decent reviews; though, so why not check out the latest installment in the Rocky franchise? This film is definitely a crowd-pleaser, but it’s a crowd-pleaser done right and with some solid direction from Steven Caple Jr. A movie about Ivan Drago’s son fighting Apollo Creed’s son could…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    This is currently the 11th highest-rated film on letterboxd......if this movie is overrated I’ll be really pissed at you guys.

  • We the Animals

    We the Animals

    ★★★★

    The wonders of being young and free. This film has slipped under the radar for most, but for me I was able to see the trailer for this on the big screen several months ago. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get around to seeing it until now. It had an interesting look and tone the film that most movies about children don’t have, and the way that it’s shot is especially interesting thanks to the hazy, autumn-feel that it…

  • Widows

    Widows

    ★★★★½

    A heist led by broken women. Steve McQueen is one of the best directors working today. Shame and 12 Years a Slave always seem to stick around in my head even though I’ve watched both films years ago, and that’s how impactful McQueen is as a director. When Widows was announced, and the first trailer had been released, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Sure, I was anticipating it, especially since it was a McQueen film, but the…

  • The Hate U Give

    The Hate U Give

    ★★

    A messy message. Coming in, I wasn’t really expecting much out of this movie based on the trailer alone. I had a very similar negative reaction to the trailer for Blindspotting, but that ended up being one of my favorite movies of the year so far, so I was hoping The Hate U Give would turn out similarly. Unfortunately my fears came true, and although the message for the film is obviously necessary, the execution is quite poor. The movie…
