    ★★★½

    "Good times are hard in the end."

    I was too tired to fully appreciate this but there's still a lot to love. Besides a few awkward fade transitions, this really doesn't feel dated. It seems like films of the 80s have such a unique texture and vividness to them that isn't replicated in films of any other decade. I don't know how to describe it, but there's a warming, mellow quality to a film like this. Too bad so much…

    ★★★½

    Produced by Darren Aronofsky lol??

    Pretty much as good as you’d expect it to be from the trailer. The first act is quality popcorn entertainment. Solid performances all around and a really good soundtrack. As you can expect, a lot of undeveloped plotpoints. Not sure if the third act was messy or if I just stopped paying attention. Probably both. 
    Jennifer Jason Leigh should be my mom.

    Fun fact: I watched this at, and live by, the theater from Drake & Josh.

    ★★★★

    "I'm not afraid of the future."
    "You should be."

    Watching Charlize breakdown over her annoying ass children gave me a whole lot of anxiety and sympathy, neither of which were expected, and reaffirmed my desire to never have children.

    Confidently and impressively directed and edited, with a surprising amount of visual flair. Mackenzie Davis is incredibly charming, a perfect contrast to Theron's raggedness. Oh, and there's an all too brief montage of Cyndi Lauper songs.

    In many ways, this year's…

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★

    This is what it's like living with anxiety.

    Like a great survival video game (à la The Last of Us), this has the adrenaline and excitement that should be present in its moments of action, as well as the emotional beats that come with rescuing a loved one, or discovering a hidden waterfall loud enough to hide you from the omnipresent monsters. In other words, the direction is simply great.

    I'm not convinced that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt could ever have quiet sex, though.
