    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★

    Rooney Mara devours an entire pie during the course of a five-minute long-take. Confirmed kino.

    Well that was an interesting experiment to say the least, I admire how hypnotic this examination of life was. This film won’t be for everyone, I get that, but I appreciate takes on philosophical themes done creatively in the medium and this is a pretty good example of weighing in on what happens after we die. Life goes on as they say. When Roo-Roo left…

    Heaven Knows What

    ★★★★

    Holy shit, what a way to open a film! ‘Heaven Knows What’ is a bleak story of the tragic underbelly of society but I couldn’t take my eyes off it.

    ★★★½

    As the tagline suggests: The Nice Guys are far from nice. Its Shane Black’s modern nod to Lethal Weapon is what I got out of it.

I would have never imagined seeing Gosling do convincing physical humor on the screen…

    Wonder Woman

    ★½

    Well, I gave in and saw it. As much discontent I have for the DCEU, I decided to give them another chance, and with that, here’s my take on ‘Wonder Woman’. I didn’t have very high hopes going in, let me be clear, but I didn’t walk away angry like I usually do. Was this a great film? Nope. Was it downright horrible? Nope. It’s a serviceable run-of-the-mill-fish-out-of-water-origin-story-with-semi-decent-characters-and-action-set-pieces, the end. Alright fine, I’ll dig deeper.

    The biggest worry for me…
