    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    I mean... this is the perfect movie. I actually feel it's almost pointless writing about it, simply cause it has been talked to death - from its absolutely masterful directing to the groundbreaking special effects and the perfectly complimentary soundtrack. So instead of talking about all that, I wanna talk about something no one else talks about (or possibly even cares about)... 2001: A Space Odyssey's view of humanity.

    2001, telling a very unconventional story and lacking a conventional protagonist,…

  • Years and Years

    Years and Years

    ★★★★

    Building on a subject Russell T. Davies already showed great fascination with in his Doctor Who episode "Turn Left", Years and Years gives us a disturbingly prescient vision of the future - a warning sign of where we might be headed if we continue on the path we have currently resigned ourselves to. While that premise isn't especially unique (just look at Black Mirror), Years and Year's decision to focus exclusively on a single family is especially brilliant. The fact…

    Wet Hot American Summer

    ★★★★★

    While I didn’t understand the love for it when I first watched it in high school, in recent rewatches Wet Hot American Summer has grown on me tremendously. Of course it’s a dumb comedy. But with the movie not missing out on a single opportunity to make a joke, I genuinely think you have to be sort of brilliant to make something this outrageously dumb. 

    It’s endlessly re-watchable, contains one of the most insane ensemble casts of all time, and…

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★

    Before I begin, I do want to say that I'm really happy Snyder was able to get his vision out there and give the fans what they so desperately wanted. It's clear this project meant a lot to him and the dedication he made to his daughter, who he lost during the film's initial production, was really beautiful. As for the movie itself though...

    Zack Snyder's Justice League can be viewed under two very distinct lenses - as a recut…

  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    ★★★★★

    Scott Pilgrim is a movie that gets better every single time I watch it. That's not to say I ever hated it, but I always found it to be rather flawed - a number of exes are superfluous, the pacing (like almost all Edgar Wright films) grinds to halt in the lead-up to the third act, and (perhaps most importantly) Scott gets off far too easily considering the type of person he's been. And yes, I do think these are…
