    Pearl

    ★★★½

    Hoop-tober 9 - Film #2

    Pearl makes for a very solid companion piece to X, featuring yet another fantastic Mia Goth performance and gorgeous cinematography which captures the Technicolor era with precision. I can't deny that I was a little underwhelmed with certain aspects of the film, but I still rather enjoyed this briskly paced character study, and I think it's well worth seeing for Goth alone.
    GRADE: B

  • The Woman King

    The Woman King

    ★★★½

    The Woman King is a rock-solid historical epic led by phenomenal performances around the board, with Davis, Lynch, and Boyega being the standouts. There is a surprising amount of heart in this film as well, which was a nice surprise to see, and I found myself attached to the characters more so than I had anticipated going in. The costume and production design are superb and the use of lighting in particular really impressed me, especially in the the nighttime…

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★½

    Coming off of the excellent Booksmart, Olivia Wilde is given a chance to prove herself as a director with a much bigger budget and a broader, more ambitious concept, but it's unfortunately with very underwhelming results.

    Don't Worry Darling isn't necessarily a bad film, but it's far from good, especially considering the potential in its premise and ideas. The film is mainly victim to a poor script. The structure of the story is rather repetitive and doesn't have much of…

    Rope

    ★★★★★

    A masterwork of suspense, camerawork, and dialogue. Rope may be the definitive chamberpiece, and it's easily one of Hitchcock's finest films in my eyes. The master of suspense adapts a play that would be seemingly impossible to translate to film in a proper manner, yet his experiment with the one-shot filming technique gives it the proper theatrical fingerprint to make it all feel incredibly cinematic and engrossing in the way a stage play couldn't be. James Stewart, one of the…

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    ★★★★½

    Buckle up, folks. This is going to be a long one.

    Just when I thought Marvel might've been going a step too far in extending its Infinity Saga post-Endgame, Jon Watts delivers one of the best films in the MCU to date. Spider-Man: Far from Home is everything I could've asked for, as an enormous Spidey fan and as a fan of good movies. This is probably the most fun I've had at the movies all year, and it's probably…
