    It's a Wonderful Life

    ★★★★★

    Jimmy Stewart literally made Ziegfeld Girl in 1941, went to war and became a highly decorated officer, and then came back to Hollywood and immediately made It’s a Wonderful Life in 1946 as his first film back from the war. It’s pretty remarkable that his first film back in the saddle (and Capra’s) is actually one of the best American films ever made. It’s like all of his war efforts were rewarded with being more immortal during the Christmas season…

    Scorsese travels from the streets of the big city to the prairies of the Osage in his brand new western epic that is chock full of brilliant cinema. From the first frame he hurls us into this world and does his best to get us caught up with the history and culture. It’s an in depth, haunting, slow burn of a crime drama that fits right into Scorsese’s wheelhouse. Where this one is different is in its tone and pacing…

    Chucking clouds. Chugging beers. Kissing his girl.

    One Way Passage

    Nice and brisk little film that is photographed beautifully and the only detractor from the quality of the film is the time it spends away from William Powell and Kay Francis. The subplot in this movie has way too much screen time and it annoyed me so much. Every time Powell and Francis were on screen it had classic in the making written all over it. The film is way too short to be diverging away from the main love story. Lots of pre code goodness here and some beautiful costumes, cinematography, and actors. Enjoyed!

    What a feckin' film. This is one of the finest feckin' films I've seen all year long. It's so feckin' good, it'll make ya want to move to the motherland and raise a miniature donkey. Feckin' great time it is. Lot's of feckin' drama. Lot's of feckin' comedy. Many moments of feckin' hilarious moments as well as some feckin' downright feckin' downbeat ones. Feck.

    Martin McDonagh is back with another cleverly written film about two Irish pals. I just…

    ★★★★★

    Damien Chazelle’s epic of debauchery amidst the start of the Hollywood system is his most ambitious film to date. This bombastic and in your face depiction of the 1920’s is the biggest gut punch to your preconceived notions as to how this era of society went about life. It really was this crazy and wild where drugs ran rampant and the parties were unhinged at an unsettling level. Babylon feels like a demented cousin of La La Land in a…
