    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    “I thought I’d find answers here. I was wrong.”

    Might be my favourite movie. Still holds up as one of the boldest and best genre films of recent memory, and an absolute miracle of craftsmanship, thematic depth, and service of character. It goes without saying at this point, but Rian Johnson understands Star Wars at a deep and affectionate level, and this was a film made with not only incredible talent, but true passion for the source material and the…

    ★★★★

    “The future is so much more interesting than the past, don’t you think?” 

    Nobody warned me about Minority Report, a film that had me on the edge of my seat for the entire running time. This is a truly engaging action picture, one of Spielberg’s fastest paced, while also managing to be equally complex, scary, emotional, and exciting. 
    There are so many different ideas, genres, and situations being juggled in this thing, and of course, it’s edited so perfectly that it…

    Knives Out

    ★★★★½

    Rian Johnson has proved at this point that there's a good chance he's the smartest and most creative guy in any room he happens to walk into, but I'd also argue that he would probably be one of the kindest as well.
    Certain losers online still think the guy is some sort of pretentious auteur who hates general audiences, but a brief look at his online presence or simply watching any of his films with an open mind reveals just…

    “Come on over a minute. I just had some ideas that I’d been thinking about for quite a while, about modulation.”

    I’m a university student. 
    Specifically, I’m in my second year of a Bachelor of Music majoring in Vocal Performance. I’ve been singing and playing piano my whole life. Probably the only reason I’m not pursuing a career in the film industry right now is because I can sing. 
    This past couple weeks in my music theory class I’ve been…

  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★★★★

    "As long as you hold on to so much hate, I don't think you're ever going to become what I know you want to become."

    Wow. Hilarious, unsettling, and emotionally complex storytelling here. Some of the best performances of the year, with Frances McDormand at the very top of her game. This isn't a nice movie. It's a movie where the bad guys are more likable than you want them to be and the hero makes choices you don't agree with. Martin McDonagh masterfully walks the line between hilarity and horror throughout, bringing ABBA and Peter Dinklage along for the ride. What a film.
