    Kill List

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Kill List is an intense and brutal film with a very realistic tone and visual style. The direction and cinematography is top notch, and the drama is tense. This has the same kind of vibe as something like Blue Ruin, only more psychological, and the third act’s sudden turn may be hard for some people to accept.

    This is a great gem from the last decade that’s definitely worth a watch.

    The concept of this film is significantly better than the execution. The action scenes in this are so over-edited that it becomes nauseating at times, dozens and dozens of cuts rapidly. To a point where it’s nearly impossible to follow these scenes. The story itself is a cool idea, but the overly dark tone which Arnold Schwarzenegger is bizarrely placed into sucks any potential fun out of this movie. This isn’t a β€œbad” movie though. In fact it’s quite average and inoffensive. It just lacks any style or rewatchability.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre shows no sign of aging, it’s more visceral and intense than nearly any other to come before or after. It’s been said to death, but the lack of…

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    β˜…β˜…Β½

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is bloated and festering with it’s borderline embarrassing plot and characters. There was a point in this movie where i really thought β€œman, i think everyone is wrong... this is really damn good.” But that was followed by a jarring tonal shift, delving into, as stated in many reviews before β€œdesperation” i was on board for the first..... i’d say an hour or so. Out of this trilogy, that chunk felt more genuine and…
