  • The Lost City

    The Lost City


    I went to this with my folks (honestly not sure I would have seen it otherwise). Sandra did Sandra very well and Channing was charming. It made me laugh more than I expected.

  • Better Nate Than Ever

    Better Nate Than Ever


    Oh for cute!

  • Kimi



    Brisk and tense with a very satisfying ending.

  • Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy

    Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy


    Not quite sure what all the fuss was about...

  • Jockey



    I'm always happy to see Molly Parker on the big screen. She is so watchable. But, This is Collins showcase and he gives us a grounded and sincere performance. Nice to see Arias here as well, he was unlike any role of his I've seen before. All in all, a nice film.

  • Scream



    Sometimes nostalgia is worth an extra half star.

  • Parallel Mothers

    Parallel Mothers


    There is usually some suspension of disbelief necessary when entering an Almodóvar film. But I just couldn't get past the melodrama of the basic premise this time. Still a solid film that I am glad I took the time to see. 
    The art direction was amazing per usual and I want to live in yet another on of his sets.

  • Swan Song

    Swan Song


    Awkwafina is quickly becoming one of my new favorites. But, it is Harris who steals the show for me. The whole premise was a little ridiculous, but ridiculous can be entertaining. I expected it to be a tear jerker, but no tears flowing here.

  • The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

    The Electrical Life of Louis Wain


    The best parts of this film were when they really leaned into the absurd. The overly sentimental parts don't work as well.
    I have three main thoughts right now:
    1. The line between genius and madness is quite delicate and they captured that very well both visually and emotionally. 
    2. Claire Foy was so lovely.
    3. Cats!

  • Licorice Pizza

    Licorice Pizza


    That was a whole lotta running considering those kids were never once being chased.

    Also, can anyone explain to me how the racist restauranteur added  anything to the storyline?

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up


    "Oh, I fucking love fingerling potatoes!"

  • Nightmare Alley

    Nightmare Alley


    The production design was out of this world (which was expected from the del Toro universe). The rest of the film was underwhelming and predictable.
