    The Goldfinch

    “ha! harry potter”

    this is some of the worst film editing i have ever seen in a movie this mainstream, and the plot was absolutely incoherent (as was the dialogue). i was trying to buy what it was selling, but everything feels off. to all you fans of the book... i am so sorry they did you this wrong. the plus side is we finally have something to double feature with the book of henry. please go see hustlers

  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

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

    i haven’t felt this disappointed in a long time. i figured going into it that this would end up being my least favorite tortellini, but i had no idea

    anyone could have directed this. it feels completely inorganic when related to him, except that it’s clearly playing out a nostalgic hollywood fantasy, feet and all. and even if he tried a new route by throwing out his old signature styles, whatever replaced it here is completely unoriginal. a lifeless corpse…

    “so, we gonna do this thing or what?”

    i can totally understand how some might like adam mckay’s style, but i doubt i could like it any less. there are some interesting moments mixed in, glimmers of captivating editing choices and some cool shots, but are surrounded by too many stupid and aimless decisions: various kinds of fonts used on the pop up texts and way too many shifts in tone, songs that end seconds…

    best picture showcase: film #5 (kinda sorta)

    “you're a prick, you know that?”

    the best picture nominee equivalent of watery, room temperature oatmeal. this was so incredibly dull that it baffles me how far something like this can get when such unique, bold and innovative movies have come out in the same year. there have even been much better safe and easily accessible comfort movies this year as well, but somehow this is one of 2018’s so called highlights? have…

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    best picture showcase: film #3

    “don’t you see what you could be?”

    the only allure here for me is that queen’s music is pretty good, and it also acts as the glue that haphazardly holds it all together. the first time i saw it i was charmed by the musical scenes (and also had no idea about the numerous controversies the film has surrounding it like a wasp hive), but over time i realized this has almost nothing else of…

    AFI 2018: film #20

    “i know, you wrote a book about it”
