    The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes


    "That's the sound of snow … falling."

    Prequels are always a tricky proposition, maybe even trickier than remakes. Ideally you end up with something genuinely interesting like the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy, or at least a wildly entertaining movie such as Rogue One. On the other end of the spectrum you get corrosive dreck that actively undermines key elements of the original film like Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

    The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes belongs in the former category.…

    Killers of the Flower Moon


    Killers of the Flower Moon is a difficult film. Martin Scorsese is acutely aware of the problematic approach his latest motion picture takes, a fact that he acknowledges by way of an inspired epilogue. In an ideal world this story would've been told from a Native American point of view by a Native American filmmaker. In our world that simply doesn't happen.

    Ridley Scott is one of my favorite directors, so there was no way I was going to…

    ➡️ Movies I Should Write About Again Because My Previous Reviews No Longer Reflect My Opinion ⚠️

    Well, that wasn't very good.

    Dune collapses under its gargantuan ambition. Denis Villeneuve builds a world so stupendously large in every frame, and yet he spectacularly fails at creating space for his characters to exist in. There isn't a single character that has more to offer than mere surface level traits. Without proper introduction it feels like we are thrown right into an…

    Say what you want about Top Gun, but Tony Scott was a goddamn painter with his camera.
