    A Quiet Place


    *points at eyes*
    *points at screen*
    -a silent tear falls-
    *eats popcorn*
    -the silo scene-
    *silently trashes popcorn*
    *mentally lists a million more reasonable places to live than a bucolic farm, given the circumstances*
    *considers also The Artist, The Shape Of Water, and wonders if silence is the new CG*
    *understandably acquiesces*

  • Annihilation



    I wouldn't have minded if this were a silent film. The exposition and dialogue either fast-forwarded or dragged unnecessarily.

    Scratch that, a non-speaking film. Sound design was key. I'd totally airbnb in the Shimmer. What a spectacle.

  • La La Land

    La La Land


    From one Damien to another, never stop making movies.

    La La Land simply could have been a big bowl of candy: eye (those leads, though, and stills that get the iPhone wallpaper treatment immediately – just check the promo poster), ear (original score that will infest your head with impossibly catchy ditties), and emotional (love's labours lost in anachronistic LA).

    But it ended up being a real swell piece of cinema. Not a fresh take, nor is it a landmark…

  • Game Night

    Game Night


    What a pleasant, pleasant, Plemons surprise. Belly laughs aplenty, thanks to whipcrack writing and a stellar cast. Comedies* like this are few and far between, and that's a damn shame.
