  • Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    ★★★½

    Exhausting!

  • Revenge

    Revenge

    ★★★½

    Heart-pounding, gruesome, punishing. And with absolutely no catharsis to be had in the titular “revenge.” Shit just gets worse and worse for Jen until it gets not better, but “done.” What a miserable fucking watch.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★

    i got chills every time they cut to Mary looking at Freddie in the final Live Aid performance (which was way too long) but I still cannot believe this absolutely boilerplate nonsense exists in a universe where Walk Hard was released 11 years ago

  • Destroyer

    Destroyer

    ★★★½

    Wow, Steve-O makes for a pretty menacing villain in this Netflix original miniseries!

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★½

    a series of notes i took during the 2018 film Aquaman:

    • james wan is such a good action/vfx director
    • the only two good fight scenes go to nicole kidman and amber heard, but just like all the other fight scenes, they are shot like the 4D harry potter ride at universal studios for some reason
    • this script is... very bad
    • the world of atlantis is fucking gorgeous
    • jason momoa plays aquaman like a cartoon character…

  • Widows

    Widows

    ★★★★

    robert duvall's first scene is him doing a tight five about how back in his day a 'facebook' wasn't on a computer and this movie STILL rules

  • Green Book

    Green Book

    ★★★

    i did not hate this movie as much as i thought i would! the entire ending is hokey garbage and there’s one scene with a cop that is so unnecessary it makes me think they took reshoot notes from an all-cop screening, but ali and mortensen are giving terrific performances. there’s little moments where the story becomes about how the two main characters have different approaches to prejudice based on their histories with it, and while it’s not handled at…

  • Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

    ★★½

    Well, dang.

  • Mamma Mia!

    Mamma Mia!

    ★★★½

    Truly delightful! I did not like it much until the Dancing Queen scene, and then something about seeing Meryl have such unabashed fun made me smile. And oh, there’s a sequel? And Meryl’s right there in the cover! Well I’m sold, can’t wait to see her have a ton of fun in another installment of the Mamma Mia franchise!

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    my THE GET DOWN-stanning ass almost jumped up and clapped about 20 minutes in when i realized i was watching a Shameik Moore-led montage set to The Incredible Bongo Band’s “Apache”

  • Mary Poppins Returns

    Mary Poppins Returns

    ★★★★★

    i like this movie so much that i had friends over to watch it and got unreasonably upset because they were having fun riffing and enjoying each other’s company over it

  • Gotti

    Gotti

    Started joking about this movie at a party so we put it on and had a blast shit talking it the whole time. And for that, I can give it exactly one star.
