    Uncharted

    ★★★½

    i’ve never played the game so i have no idea if it’s a faithful adaptation, but i had fun watching tom holland run around doing action-adventurey things.

  • Marry Me

    i had so much fun with this

    i will go apeshit if this movie doesn’t get a best picture nomination


    EDIT: i did in fact go apeshit. that editing nomination was such a tease (though so well deserved).

    A thrilling documentary.

  • Am I Ok?

    Am I Ok?

    ★★★½

    Sundance #9

    While it definitely feels familiar, Am I Ok won me over with its charm & a solid Dakota Johnson performance.

  • Cha Cha Real Smooth

    ★★★★½

    Sundance #8

    Cha Cha Real Smooth is the movie I was waiting for!! I was blown away by Cooper Raiff’s many talents here. This is such a relatable and lovely film. The whole ensemble is perfect, but Raiff and Dakota Johnson both stand out. I really can’t say enough good things about it. It’s guaranteed to stick around as one of my favorites of the year.

  • Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

    Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

    ★★★½

    Sundance #7

    Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack shine in this well written, sex positive comedy. Some of the dramatic beats didn’t quite land for me, but it can’t be understated how refreshing it was to see a film treat sex as healthy and positive.

  • Master

    ★★★★½

    Sundance #6

    I was not expecting this one to hit me the way it did. I found this to be absolutely terrifying (so much so I had to keep the lights on at certain points). Regina Hall is a powerhouse, as is Zoe Renee. The social commentary to be found here is brilliant. Master is going to be haunting me for a long time to come.

  • Call Jane

    Sundance #5

    Genuinely loved this. Elizabeth Banks is fantastic. This is obviously a very important and timely film and it was honestly surprising how accessible this film is. I really hope this reaches a big audience once it finds a distributor.

  • Emergency

    Emergency

    ★★★★

    Sundance #4

    I don’t want to say much about this one, but it’s really strong filled with great performances. Definitely my favorite of the festival so far. Apparently Amazon already picked it up and will release it in May, so make sure to check it out!

  • When You Finish Saving the World

    ★★★½

    Sundance #3

    Finn Wolfhard and Julianne Moore (especially) deliver great performances in Jesse Eisenberg’s directorial debut. The plot doesn’t always feel earned, but at the end of the day, this is a very solid first feature from Eisenberg.

    Sundance #2

    I don’t feel like I have anything to add to what’s already been said about this one, but I really enjoyed it. I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing it get a Best Original Screenplay nomination.
