  • Burning

    Burning

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “sometimes you can’t see things that are too close to you”

    this didn’t do it for me at all. i can see the potential appeal, but it couldn’t appeal to me less. the ambiguity serves no purpose and has not much endgame, and it feels too long regardless. the movie (and the protagonist) don’t seem to really care about her, or what happened to her, but only how HE feels about it. and it feels lazy and pointless

  • In Fabric

    AFI 2018: film #11

    “don’t tell me you’re scared of a dress”

    a feature length explicit goosebumps book adaptation, but to say that would be insulting to goosebumps

  • Halloween

    Halloween

    ★½

    “happy halloween, michael”

    the thing about the original that’s drawn people in for 40 years is how well it’s crafted: the music, the specific angles and the way the camera swings around. the tension and the mystery of it. but like so many before and after it, this one genuinely great movie fell victim to franchising, which always waters the original down if the rest are compared to it

    but honestly? my biggest issue here is my complete lack of interest…

  • Venom

    Venom

    ★½

    would you believe that this is the first feature film with a script completely auto generated by a robot? it's not true, but it would make sense

  • Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★½

    if this movie had a face i would punch it

  • Life of the Party

    Life of the Party

    ★½

    christina aguilera has a cameo in this. and that really sums it up
