I unironically LOVE the 2008 Jason Statham film “Death Race.” Just had to get that off my chest.

    Crimes of the Future

    ★★★½

    The more I think about it, the more I like it!

    "Crimes of the Future" is EXTREMELY Cronenbergian - almost to a ridiculous degree - in the sense that it's both revolting and...oddly sensual? The man's films have a knack for grossing me out but simultaneously turning me on, and I'll probably have to go to therapy to figure that kink out. Cronenberg's latest film also highlights his tendency to end his movies abruptly, about 10-15 minutes earlier than you…

    One of my absolute favorite things in life is to be riveted in a theater, and man, "Top Gun: Maverick" sure does deliver.

It's the craziest thing -…

    LOVED the first half of this. In stark contrast to the rest of the DCEU (sans "Birds of Prey"), it's goofy and fun like a Saturday morning cartoon. The introduction of the monkey's paw plotline felt fresh for the superhero medium, almost as if we were watching a $200 million dollar after-school special, and I mean that in a GOOD way. I remember thinking to myself, "I'm really enjoying this but Patty Jenkins is walking a fine line here, and…
