  • The 'Burbs

    The 'Burbs

    ★★★★

    Normally I'd save something like this until Hoop-Tober, but I was tempted to pick up the Arrow Video release.

    This is one that's kind of been on my horizon for a while, and my initial viewing didn't disappoint at all. From Gremlins director Joe Dante, The 'Burbs is one of the more notable films of Tom Hanks' career during his 80s hayday, a thoroughly hilarious and bizarre tale of suburbia that for my money is probably one of his best…

  • Carlito's Way

    Carlito's Way

    ★★★★½

    A decade after Scarface, Brian De Palma and Al Pacino teamed up for another narrative-driven crime epic. Despite that I find Scarface to be a more satisfying experience, I can safely say that after watching both, Carlito's Way is probably better as an actual "movie".

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★½

    NOTE: As of October 31st, one major actor name has been removed from this review for obvious reasons.

    Edgar Wright has done it again.

    I've always been a massive fan of his work since the Cornetto trilogy, so of course that Baby Driver was on my horizon for a good while. I knew I'd love it, but my expectations were surpassed immensely. Action-packed, well-cast, and brilliantly-directed from start to finish, it pretty much has everything I'd want in this kind…
