    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★½

    this movie is phenomenal. it was the perfect slow burn psychological thriller and i was so entertained for every second. there are so many epic moments, twists, and action sequences that are so engaging. elisabeth moss gives one of the most memorable performances i’ve seen in a long time. aldis hodge and storm reid also shine. i love the overall commentary and themes the film plays with. the film is actually scary, thought-provoking, and smart. i can’t say enough. i absolutely loved it!

    ★★★½

    i was looking forward to this film and it did not disappoint. i’m all for a slow burn horror, and this was completely effective. there are creepy moments, shocking twists, and themes i want to sit down and explore. riley keough is an absolute star and jaeden martell and lia mchugh shine in their respective roles. i had a blast with this film!

    The Photograph

    ★★★

    a decent romantic drama. issa rae and lakeith stanfield carry the movie and have remarkable chemistry. the film is a bit too cheesy and predictable, but does a great job of capturing that first sense of love and passion. the structure could have complimented the story more. there are many flashbacks, some of which don’t even matter. but these two leads and their romance are definitely why you see the movie.

    ★★★★

    this movie was such a delight. the blend of drama and humor fits the story perfectly. the overall story and themes about family really hit home in a powerful way. will ferrell shines as this loser dad and miranda otto is a comedic genius. but julia louis-dreyfus easily steals the movie. she is one of my favorite performers of all time, so it is inevitable i was going to enjoy this movie. it was a refreshing and interesting dramedy!

    i was extremely bored. i’m shocked that i wanted to leave the theater this bad. nothing worked for me. nothing at all.

    oh my god this was awful. i never understood why this movie existed. nothing about this worked. nothing.

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★½

    i am OBSESSED with this movie. if this is not in my top 10 of the year, then this will be a great year for film. i was beyond entertained for every second and couldn’t believe how much fun i was having. first of all, i am in awe of harley quinn’s character. margot robbie flawlessly portrays this character. she’s literally crazy and not a good person and that’s exactly why i loved her and rooted for her for the…

    The Rhythm Section

    ★★★★

    i thoroughly enjoy and admire this film. i love reed morano and her style blends in perfectly with this story. the film is intimate, uncomfortable, and gritty. blake lively is incredible and portrays a broken and lost character perfectly. jude law and sterling k brown both shine, and i was so intrigued throughout the whole film in its themes and messages as well as content.

  • Clemency

    Clemency

    ★★★

    a perfectly fine movie with an incredible performance from alfre woodard. she carries this film and she is the reason to watch this film. i felt like this movie and its material would be much more suited for the stage rather than film. i never got the grasp of alfre woodard’s past troubles. if julius onah had this script, he could do wonders. i just saw so much potential in this film, but the execution wasn’t quite there.

  • The Turning

    The Turning

    ★★½

    a somewhat interesting horror flick. the reason to see this movie is the cast. mackenzie davis continues to be an absolute star. brooklyn prince and finn wolfhard are both incredible and complex in their own ways. it’s a film that relies on cheap, ineffective scares to advance the story. there is a lot of confusion with no answers and no real conclusions.

    ★★

    oh my god this was bad. there were so many different movies inside of one. i was never scared once, and the performances are just meh. so predictable and bland.

  • Dolittle

    Dolittle

    ★★

    this was a mistake. i don’t know why it was made. it’s so bland and boring. i don’t even see the appeal for children. there are so many better options for kids to watch. a cool voice cast, but i literally felt like each of their animals did not fit them. this movie is the epitome of a january movie.
