    Blade Runner

    ★★★★½

    Blade Runner has been on my watchlist for years and its sequel is already one of my most anticipated films of the year....but I never saw the original!

    The only bad thing I can say about this whole experience is that it took me WAY too long to watch this film. The plot is heavy, rich with powerful themes and beautiful sequences. I became lost in this interesting world that Ridley Scott made.

    I can definitely see my rating going up for this film upon a few rewatches. I'm so excited for Blade Runner 2049.

  • The Glass Castle

    ★★★½

    Destin Daniel Cretton's follow up to 2013's Short Term 12 feels like a very safe and slightly disappointing addition to his filmography.

    ★★★★½

    My first though of Ex Machina was how much it reminded me of one of my all time favorite movies Her. Both Her and Ex Machina share similar themes. They deal with human interaction and love and have similar viewpoints of the world.

    Anyways, while not as masterful and touching as Her, Ex Machina still manages to tell an interesting and gripping story. I didn't expect it to be as strange and suspenseful as it was.

    Oscar Isaac is one…

    Crimson Peak

    ★★★★

    Jessica freaking Chastain.

    This movie just confirms that she is my favorite actress and is one of the most versatile actresses in Hollywood today. Her crazy and haunting character, Lady Lucille, is truly the star of Crimson Peak.

    Anyways, despite what your first impression may be, this isn't exactly a scary movie. It's more period drama with a disturbing twist. It will still offer some scares and definitely a disturbing story, but don't expect a screamer.

    It follows the story…
