  • Three Identical Strangers

    Three Identical Strangers

    ★★★½

    Three Identical Strangers is a truly fascinating story that is nearly unbelievable. The story of these long-lost brothers is remarkable, though the film itself is fairly standard.‬

    ‪Still, it makes you wonder about your upbringing, your heritage, and why you are the way you are.‬

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★

    Eighth Grade captures the honest awkwardness of being a kid with such empathy. Elsie Fisher is a star, and makes you feel so much with just a sigh.‬ This movie sees life truly from the eyes of a kid and it’s as uncomfortable, funny, and heartbreaking as it should be.‬


    ‪‪It never looks down on the “next generation.” The film doesn’t judge kids for being on their phones all the time or making stupid YouTube videos. It accepts them, and accepts that their feelings are real and deep and true.‬


    Eighth Grade is a marvelous, delightfully awkward film.‬

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout is exactly as thrilling as you hope it will be! Amazing action, but it never overshadows the high stakes. The plot is complex but never convoluted. Plenty of twists and turns, some genuinely surprising. The characters are so strong. Henry Cavill is a great addition.

    All the stunts, big and small, are amazing, including the best fistfight of the series. We don’t see stunt-work like this much anymore. A breath of fresh air amidst the CGI-fueled…

  • Sorry to Bother You

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★½

    ‪Surreal, absurd, and admirably ambitious, Sorry To Bother You sets its sights high. It’s sometimes distractingly bizarre, but filled with so many ideas and brilliant social relevance. Lakeith Stanfield is truly remarkable.‬

    ‪It didn’t hit every right note, but Boots Riley has a unique voice that’s impossible to ignore.‬
