    Tom Hanks wasn’t even acting here.

    Exactly what you would expect. Had some fun dance moments.

    While it is undoubtedly stunning in its cinematography, music, and performances; go watch Euphoria instead.

    Sam Rockwell deserved that Snickers.

  • The Gentlemen

    ★★★★½

    Now Hugh grant is a proper handsome cunt, living his best life and flirting with Charlie Hunnam. A bunch of great jokes land perfectly, the directing is swift and stylish. Guy Ritchie classic.

  • Just Mercy

    Just Mercy

    ★★★½

    Good performances with a message you’ve seen before but it’s powerful nonetheless. Watch it for Brie Larson's southern accent.

  • Bombshell

    Bombshell

    ★★★

    Found it hard in the beginning to grasp the tone of the movie. Was I watching a drama, a comedy or an episode of the Office? Nonetheless, Theron, Robbie, and Kidman were all brilliant. Lithgow took the creep Oscar for his portrayal of Roger Ailes. Honestly, fuck this guy.

  • Jojo Rabbit

    Jojo Rabbit

    ★★★★½

    From laughing at Hitler jumping out of the window to being on the verge of tears. Sorry Tarantino, Taika is the only director that can give me chills by filming a woman’s feet. Now let's have a dance.

    Wow, just wow. From the very first minute, I was sucked into the story of this movie. It is tense, emotional and impressive. And boy don't get me started on the score. Simply terrific. What a great idea to make this entire thing a one-shot. Such a great way to capture the importance of time and the two characters.

  • Fighting with My Family

    Fighting with My Family

    ★★★★

    I never thought I would like a movie about wrestling. But this was told in such a cute way. The cast is perfect and Florence Pugh is brilliant. So much fun.

  • Stan & Ollie

    Stan & Ollie

    ★★★½

    A wonderful homage to two creative geniuses. Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly truly embody Laurel and Hardy. These incredible actors do not disappoint.
