  • Overlord

    Overlord

    ★★★★

    If there’s a Nazi zombie movie, you know I’ll be there.

    Overlord is a surprisingly entertaining and coherent film. The movie that was supposed to be another installment of the Cloverfield franchise stands up well as a solo flick. My only complaint is that there wasn’t enough gross Nazi monsters. Everything was moderately grounded instead of going completely off the rails with creature feature gore.

    I’m sure this one will be lost and forgotten about, but I hope Overlord becomes a cult classic with time. Definitely check it out when you get the chance.

  • The Post

    The Post

    ★★★★

    Ok, yes, The Post is good but it feels like a parody of an Oscar winning film. Streep, Hanks (looking like Daran Norris), a timely political — it’s like they made it in an Oscars think tank. 

    Look, I actually enjoyed it, but I can’t get over all the little things. I laughed when Carrie Coon read the Supreme Court decision at the end. And I couldn’t get over the weird color grading. And CCR playing over a Vietnam sequence!

    Ok, I’ll stop. I swear it’s good and I didn’t hate it.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    Ten years in the making and under an immense amount of expectations, Infinity War managed to live up to the hype. I’m not sure what more I could have asked for. This will go down as one of the all-time great summer blockbusters.

    I don’t want to spoil anything, but I want to say how much I loved Thanos. Brolin knocked it out of the park. Thanos was humanized and strangely relatable for the ultimate evil in the universe. The MCU has gotten some crap for having weak villains, but Thanos was certainly not one.

    This is a movie and I have seen it.
