  • White Boy Rick

    White Boy Rick

    ★★★½

    Not so much the story of how a young kid built a criminal empire (then lost it) as it is a coming-of-age story with a father and son relationship at its core. And as such, it is a very solid representative of the genre and a good film on its own right.

    It is sad, heartfelt, funny, entertaining, and as dangerous as a box of dynamite. In addition, White Boy Rick might feature the best ever use of Funkadelic’s Get Off Your Ass and Jam in film.

  • The Nun

    The Nun

    ★★

    Appreciate the Conjuring tie-in and the universe world-building.

    The opening third shows so much promise with the rich cinematography of the mysterious castle and beautiful Romanian countryside, but there's simply not enough substance once we enter the convent and begin unraveling the mystery for it to be anything more than a standard horror vehicle.

    And enough with all the jump-scares already. Geez!

    The Revenant

    ★★★★★

    It's long but I was glued to the screen for the entire 154 minutes. Extremely brutal, heartbreakingly beautiful, and one of DiCaprio's best to date. Well deserving of its hard R rating as it's more graphic than any horror movie you'll ever see.

    The Meg

    ★★★

    Big, dumb, and stupid but a pure blast from beginning to end! We so dont deserve Jason Statham. It’s not Jaws, but it IS “The Meg!”
