    Bright

    ★★

    Pretty confusing half-premise of a movie that never figures out where it’s headed. 
    I’d say it borrows some ideas from the wonderful comic book series Fable, but I don’t want to taint it by comparison. 
    Just read Fable instead.

  • Meth Storm

    Meth Storm

    ★★★★

    The most hopeless thing I’ve ever seen since The Road.

  • Agnelli

    Agnelli

    ★★★½

    So that’s where Fiats come from.

  • Nerve

    Nerve

    ★★★½

    Totally fun movie about a some kids held hostage by a live-streaming social media platform that offers cash for dares while being monitored by the voyeristic ‘watchers’. This feels like a modern Cronenberg movie in the way it draws upon a disturbing relationship people have with each other through technology– in this case twitch and any camwhore site where viewers pay to watch and interact. The film explores this and goes into a much darker place. Not totally unlike Videodrome, but more action-y. Also with a 🔥 soundtrack.

  • The Arrival

    The Arrival

    ★★½

    Awesome. Agents of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization try to deal with a paranoid schizophrenic signal hunter in the dumbest or best disguises ever.

  • Monster

    Monster

    ★★★½

    A true tale of terrible people being absolutely terrible without a shred of any kind of redemption between them. Movie title is accurate.
