    “I’m going to make a movie about you.”

    On paper, the premise behind this autobiographical film from Shia LaBeouf seems like it could have been the most pretentious, self-indulgent, self-serving film to come out this year. I am genuinely happy to report nothing can be further from that depiction. Honey Boy is the most meditative, heartbreaking, and cathartic film of the whole year. 

    The way the story is told allows the audience to experience a childhood that may have been…

    ★★★★½

    So I was sitting on my couch watching this on Netflix when about an hour in I realized I could have seen this at a cinema.... however I do not know if I could have sat there for so long so Netflix worked just fine.

    That being said, no matter what format I can definitely recommend this film as I was hugely skeptical of this from hearing a lot about it. Everything about this film feels so carefully crafted and…

    I think the most interesting part about Noah Baumbach’s films are that how they really take a certain moment or period in someone’s life and put it on display in such a relatable way.

    "Friends are the family you choose"

    I'm going to start this off by saying, everyone that even has a small interest in seeing this, please go out and do so. I drove out an hour to check this out because I think it's important to go out and support films like these regardless if you enjoy the final product or not. Which by the way I absolutely adored this. 

    While I have heard that this is the feel-good movie you…

    “I suspect foul play”

    I can’t believe just how good this really was. I was not super hyped at all to see this, but my god it was a fantastic murder mystery whodunnit. 

    First, Rian Johnson. Great writing and direction. The script is genuinely funny and very clever. The way that the characters act and speak seemed very realistic actually, but they still each have a hint of ridiculousness that makes them so fun to watch. The acting. Ana de…
