    Bohemian Rhapsody


    I really, really like Queen. And so I couldn’t help but enjoy watching this movie. Do I wish it was better? Absolutely. Does it deserve any accolades? Absolutely not. None. But I’m glad Rami Malek was lip syncing. I’d much rather listen to Freddie Mercury’s voice. Because I really, really like Queen.

    Velvet Buzzsaw definitely exhibits strong ingredients to go deeper into its themes and its characters, but before long it proves to be wasting the effort and remains a bit of a shallow mess.

    The House That Jack Built


    I’m always looking forward to the next Lars von Trier joint, so I’m admittedly biased, but this was a wonderful blend of macabre and comedy riding on a winning performance from the ever charming Matt Dillon (yes, biased again... but he’s playing a serial killer, so he oughta be charming). This wasn’t my favorite Lars von Trier film, but it was as satisfying a watch as any of them... if you’re into that sorta thing.

    If Beale Street Could Talk


    A beautiful film with some beautiful sequences and performances all executed... well, beautifully. But the non-linear placement of the transcendent moments within a narrative of inequitable tragedy felt unfulfilling as a whole.
