  • War of the Worlds

    War of the Worlds

    ★★★★½

    Spielberg showcases how humanity changes when their entire environment undergoes a dramatic transition, on a scale never realized before. Sheer chaos gives way to unparalleled confusion, which gives way to unflinching pride (or naive heroism, depends on the individual who's asked). The similes to the event that changed the world are startling and chilling. The dust, the carnage, the debris. Undeniably eerie. Tom Cruise puts the drama on his shoulders and he hits a grand slam. I'm a smidge upset…

  • Bulworth

    Bulworth

    ★★★½

    United States Senator Jay Bulworth (or should I say, J-Dawg) inherits the ability of "urban culture©™" like a fuckin' Place of Power from Witcher 3, in another film that will make you ask (in a loving, but reminiscent manner, like a John Ford western), "20th Century Fox used to give money to productions like these?" Like watching your leftist uncle make their own political satire. Still, when you see those funny comedic moments, you think, "Oh, that's really neat." Ennio…

    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    Decent enough Star Wars spinoff loses steam towards the middle portion, but sticks a solid landing in the final third of the series. I will probably have no drive to watch this again in the future like I do with the prequels.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Was finally able to finish this after the IMAX 3D fiasco. I think I prefer the latest Spider-Man to this. It's a decent movie overall, I was just more moved by the web-slinger's latest go. Very cool that Raimi added a lot more kineticism and spirit to the camera, but that's about all that really stands out to me.

  • Gravity

    Gravity

    ★★★★★

    Gravity is a film that deserves it's praise and recognition. There is no other film like it, nor will there be for a long time.

    Alfonso Cuaron's entrancing experience deserves to be seen on the largest screen possible, with the best sound system, and I dare say this.....in 3 dimensions. All three of these qualities mesh together to pull you and the audience into Space. A damn fine setting, indeed.

    Gravity is a 90 minute thriller in the deadliest setting…

  • Evil Dead II

    Evil Dead II

    ★★★★

    I sure love me some good ole' cheesy horror.

    Sam Raimi is probably the best at making horror movies with elements you can't take seriously, and that makes his movies more fun. The first Evil Dead was just a straight up horror classic. Evil Dead II had some horror elements but a little bit of humor, too. Army of Darkness is just fucking awesome.

    But i'll be focusing on Evil Dead II, a sequel that's scary and terrifically badass.
