  • Class Action Park

    Class Action Park

    ★★★½

    The fact that this was even a real place proves that art really does imitate life more than we’d care to admit

    Equal parts exhilarating and tragic this was a pretty interesting watch and way better than that shitty Johnny Knoxville movie that came out recently

  • Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★★½

    It doesn’t quite match the quality of the first but it’s certainly the best we could have hoped for without Villeneuve or Deakins

  • End of Watch

    End of Watch

    ★★★½

    Really great and natural charisma/dialogue between Gyllenhaal and Peña, thought the whole balancing of their work life vs personal life was done pretty well 

    Too bad it’s sandwiched between a pretty tired and unremarkable plot

    Also certain aspects of the climax felt a little cheap although the ending was pretty heartfelt

  • The Thing

    The Thing

    ★★★½

    Maybe just a victim of my own expectations but I didn’t love it, I can definitely see myself rewatching it though and I have a feeling I might get more out of it knowing what to expect 

    The creature design is fucking top notch though

  • Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    ★★★½

    FUCK CAROL BASKIN

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    ★★★½

    It’s very solid and presents some really provoking and engaging ideas

    I have no doubt that the score will improve upon a rewatch
