  • Yes, God, Yes

    Yes, God, Yes

    ★★★★

    Yes, God, Yes, much like Maine's original short, is a compelling and honest depiction of the exploration of teen sexuality as well as a strong commentary about the hypocrisy of catholicism that I found myself really enjoying. Natalia Dyer gives a magnificent yet subtle performance and makes for an incredibly charming and likable lead. The film is paced very well and the script is very strong here. The dialogue feels natural and the way certain aspects of the film played…

  • The Kissing Booth 2

    The Kissing Booth 2

    ½

    The Kissing Booth 2 is just the first movie all over again but this time with a plot constructed completely out of subplots. The one thing I can actually give the first film, at least over this one, is that it did have a plot. One of the worst plots in film history, but *a* plot. One with a clear focus. This sequel instead trades that in for a bunch of boring subplots with hollow characters and scenarios as bland…

    Buffaloed

    ★★★½

    You've seen this kind of film before, and while it doesn't do anything incredibly new or particularly innovative, the script and direction are both strong enough to help Buffaloed stand apart from the rest of the pack while Zoey Deutch delivers what might be her best performance yet. Deutch has such a wonderful charisma that compliments the film's energy perfectly and makes for an entertaining ride with her. It's nothing spectacular, but it's a fun way to spend 95 minutes and it has enough manic energy and strong comedic moments to make it worthwhile for sure.
    GRADE: B

  • The Assistant

    The Assistant

    ★★★½

    The Assistant is both a very important film that never spoon-feeds its message to its audience and also a very well-constructed drama about the day-to-day monotony of an assistant position. It works on many levels, as both a simple drama and an infuriating #MeToo story. There are times I wanted to punch certain characters and others when I wanted to fall asleep because of the tedious pace of the film, but both were the intended reaction, and I have to…

    Shaft

    ★★★½

    My personal ranking of the Shaft films:
    Shaft > Shaft > Shaft

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    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…
