    The House of the Devil

    ★★★

    Okay fine, I'll be the first to admit I just watched this because Greta Gerwig is in it. That's probably gonna become my new binge at the moment, I'm not fooling anyone. But man, she deserved better.. what a terrible choice this was based on me wanting to see more of her, haha.

    The House of the Devil is very familiar plot told in a very familiar way. That's almost exactly what I liked so much about it though. Everything…

Instead I’ll say this; I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey in 70mm. It was transcendent. A screen bigger than my house in a…

    Dragon Quest: Your Story

    ★★★

    I had a bunch of reasons as to why I was mildly curious to see this. The animation looked great, even though I was admittedly disappointed that Akira Toriyama's iconic art style for the series was not used (though to my shock there is a reason for that!!). I've never played Dragon Quest V (or any other in the series for that matter, except for the Demo to XI), so I figured this would be a decent "sparknotes"-esque way that…
