    Anna and the Apocalypse

    ★★★½

    Really effective horror/comedy/musical. Loved pretty much all the songs and really loved the first half of the movie, kind of loses its touch in the second half but really enjoyed the movie. The whole cast was great and there were some pretty gory kills.

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    Great sophomore effort from Robert Eggers. Robert Pattinson and William dafoe are both on their A game. I love all the interactions between their characters, as the tension and madness continues to grow their Interatctions get better and better. A nice slow build to to a crazy 3rd act. The location is great and I love the choice that it’s shot in black and white. The cinematography and score are both stand outs as well. Could be a masterpiece with more viewings.

  • Climax

    Climax

    ★★★★

    Wow what an experience this movie was. Expertly shot and acted, I felt like I was on LSD just watching this movie. This movie is a great drug PSA movie though, because after watching this I would never touch the stuff.

  • Richard Jewell

    Richard Jewell

    ★★★½

    Solid bio pic with great performances all around. Didn’t know much about the actual story going in so I learned a lot for the most part.

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★

    Really don’t understand all the hate this movie is getting. Worst Star Wars movie ever I kept hearing, far from it. It’s a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy and the Skywalker saga as a whole. Is it perfect? No, but it caps off the trilogy on a perfect note but also leaves it open. A lot of questions are still left unanswered but I enjoyed the conclusion. I really still want to spend a lot more time with these characters.

  • Honey Boy

    Honey Boy

    ★★★★

    Not a movie for everyone, this is a personal story written by Shia labeof and gives you a glimpse into how his childhood was. We flash back and forth between early adult Otis played by Lucas Hedges who is an amazing young actor, and childhood Otis played by Noah jupe who steals the show in this movie. We spend most of the time with younger Otis and his dad which shows us why he is so messed up in his early adult years. It’s a film about mental health anD forgiveness.

  • Ready or Not

    Ready or Not

    ★★★★

    Just a fun horror comedy. You just can’t take your eyes off samara Weaving. She is a total badass in this movie. Stand out horror movie for the year

  • The Peanut Butter Falcon

    The Peanut Butter Falcon

    ★★★★

    A feel good road trip movie with amazing performances. Great movie for wrestling fans too.

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★½

    This is hands down the best acting I have seen from Adam Driver, Scarlet Jo doesnt disappoint either. The movie starts with first running down a list of what things Charlie loves about Nicole and then vice versa what Nicole loves about Charlie and then we are plunged right into the beginning stages of their divorce. While still civil towards each other we then get to know each character and their point of views, I feel the movie wants you…

  • A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★★

    A very touching movie. It felt like watching a new episode. Tom hanks knocked it out of the park with his portrayal of Fred Rodgers.

  • Brink!

    Brink!

    ★★★

    Soul skater!!!  I used to watch this all the time when I was a kid, it doesn’t hold up too well but still a fun skating movie and a decent soundtrack. A lot of nostalgia here for me

  • Wounds

    Wounds

    ★★★

    Was really digging the first half of this film, but it got convoluted towards the end and couldn’t stick the landing. Armie hammer was awesome and should do more horror movies. As much as I love Dakota Johnson, she had verry little to do and not much screen time.
