I took a film class in high school AND college so you can trust me when I tell you the greatest movie of all time is Shoot 'Em Up.

    Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

    ★★★★

    I want to take a three-week road trip in Spain after watching Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, a movie about three dudes taking a three-week road trip in Spain. Director/co-writer Zoya Akhtar and co-writer Reema Kagti craft a worthy addition to the Life-Changing Road Trip genre that splits the difference between the melodramatic emotional antics of traditional Bollywood films and her more grounded approach in Luck by Chance.

Vijayendra Prasad have crafted a near-perfect historical…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    I had my mind blown and my heart shattered by Everything Everywhere All at Once, the maximalist masterpiece by writer-directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, aka Daniels, so incredible, amazing, and extraordinary it has reduced me to burbling hyperbole. Though they are a duo, their follow-up to Swiss Army Man confirms them to be singular visionary geniuses who have graduated from making emotionally affecting farts to making emotionally affecting...hot dog fingers?? They excel at wringing both high drama and emotional…
