    The Many Saints of Newark

    Why? Why does this exist? Why did they make a two-hour, overfilled prequel episode and call it a movie? I mean, I guess The Many Saints of Newark at the very least looks expensive, and Alessandro Nivola’s fresh take on Chrissy’s father saves this movie from pure boredom, but mostly every other character and performance comes off as a horridly distracting impression of their counterparts from The Sopranos. What’s even worse than that though is the god-awful, meandering, and uninteresting…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    • Hey, but who wouldn’t take advantage of their glucose guardian? I mean, we’re only human, your Honor; can you really blame them for wanting to taste the devious licks of mukbang supremacy???

    • Chytilová said this on behalf of what she and her crew were attempting to do with the making of this movie: “We would like to unveil the futility of life in the erroneous…

    Spectre

    I don’t know? It has that same competent action-based and quippy direction as Skyfall which I mentioned before, but paired with that same kind of uninteresting, far-fetched, and bleak story and romantic interest or general character-based relational writing as Quantum of Solace — the “mastermind all along” cliché is warring for this genre, I tell ya! I couldn’t care less too about Spectre’s homages to Dr. No and more notably From Russia With Love, considering it tries to balance them…

  • Skyfall

    Skyfall

    The parts where Bond excavates over VW Beetles on a moving train, uses a komodo dragon as a jump stool, that ICONIC ADELE OPENING, and when we get to the highlight of a halfway point where Javier Bardem’s character barges in with his horny-ass betrayal energy and absolutely iconic lines are part of the reason for what make this movie salvageable to me. Roger Deakins is also great at making movies look really pretty and all, but yeah… Skyfall’s plot…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Warning: This review will contain excessive amounts of the f-word in the spirit of Tarantino.

    I remember seeing the second trailer for Tarantino’s ninth (but technically tenth) film way back in May of 2019 and thinking to myself “I have no clue what this movie is going to be about, but I’m cheer to see that the marketers have decided to not give anything away!” So, I just saw the full, two-hour-and-forty-five-minute-long movie…and I have to say…I still have no…

    Joker

    Wow, I have…so much…to say about this

    Todd Phillips’s Joker is one of the most forbidding pieces of cinematic design to come to mind especially in recent years. Using its visually repulsive presentation to seize uncanny validity and to strike audiences worldwide of the truth about a terrorizing infection that’s leaked into the veins of every individual around the world, this film rivets its audience through all the grimmest corners of life before eventually abandoning them, pretending like they don’t…
