    Bad Education

    ★★★★

    Not the best Bad Education (the 2004 Almodovar is also fire) but still a pretty great one.

    At first, I felt terrible that this movie sold to HBO, meaning it wouldn't be getting a theatrical release, but due to what's going on right now, I think the makers of this film took the right deal.

    While I will say that I am still a fan of director Cory Finley's previous film, his directorial debut Thoroughbreds a tad more, I do…

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    Elizabeth Moss is this movie, and she is utterly fantastic.

    I mean, I haven't seen her act so terrified in something since that one episode of Mad Men, where Michael Ginsberg cut off his nipple and gave it to Peggy as a gift.

    If I were to compare this to 1933 The Invisible Man, you could say it has no relation to it.

    But, no fucking shit, that's like saying that the movie Hollow Man didn't star Kevin Bacon in…

    Capone

    ★½

    It was nearly two years ago when tragedy struck upon the film community.

    The critics put out the hit.

    There lay Gotti murdered in cold blood and the entire genre of mobster movies with it.

    Movie audiences around the world were all in shambles.

    But luckily for us, the cinephiles, not even a year later, director Martin Scorsese finally gave us his film The Irishman after years of delays in its production to all-around acclaim.

    So yet, why must movies like…

    ★★½

    (Me speaking in a drunken voice) - The ACTION was going but for WHAT

    We are currently living in a post-world John Wick era, as action movies like this now fit into a void of just being your typical mild standard fare.

    In today's day and age, seeing a film with well-filmed action scenes (and with stuntmen as the movie directors) is nothing new to be seen.

    Now, on the other hand, if this film were to be released say…

  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    A wonderfully sadistic fairy tale set amidst the free-loving days of Los Angeles during the dawn of the New Hollywood Era.

    Quentin Tarantino's new film makes something's that's like if Russ Meyer's Beyond The Valley of The Dolls and Robert Altman's The Player had a perfectly healthy baby together.

    As for the performances go, Margot Robbie was fantastic as Sharon Tate.

    The scene where we see her dancing at the Playboy Mansion brought towards vibes matching to someone like the…

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    I had the absolute pleasure of seeing this movie early tonight at the new ArcLight up here in Boston.

    And that wasn't even the best part of it since I got to see Adam Sandler, both the Safdie Brothers and Kevin Garnett, all introducing the film.

    Right before the movie started, one of the two Safdie brothers and I apologize, but I couldn't tell you if it were either Benny or Josh since the theater's lights were off, said a…
