    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


    Though not without its faults (the James Franco segment is slight and the usage of certain tropes doesn't feel entirely justified), the film is an infectious encapsulation of the Coen Brothers' craft and bravado. 8.5/10

  • Rocky V

    Rocky V


    Certain story elements and relationships feel underdeveloped, but there are enough twists on the formula and strong performances to carry this installment through. 6.5/10

    Though it might be a touch dated in spots, The Matrix still holds up as a stellar example of visual storytelling. 8.5/10

  • Alpha and Omega

    Alpha and Omega

    The animation is terrible, the story is underdeveloped, and the jokes are unfunny. Awful movie. 2/10
