    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★½

    I can’t remember the last time I grinned from ear to ear for the entire runtime of a movie. The Mitchells vs. The Machines is a exciting movie with a vibrant animation style and a plethora of pop culture references.

    Exactly the right tonic for being housebound during a pandemic.

  • Seven Samurai

    ★★★★★

    With a film as praised as this one is, and having already seen the (original) Magnificent Seven, I thought I knew what to expect when I finally sat down to watch Seven Samurai.

    I cannot overstate how wrong I was.

    An intense, neo-noir romp through the modern day LA crime TV beat, Nightcrawler features a driven self-starter who sets his sights on underground LA journalism. A back door look into the competitive media scene, Nightcrawler exposes humanity's need for fast breaking news and information.
    Jake Gyllenhaal delivers a beast of a performance as he continues to assert himself in the new wave of cinema heavyweights. With this string of roles in Prisoners, Enemy, and now this, he seems to have found a niche in intense thrillers and mindbenders. And what a directorial debut for Dan Gilroy! A great, intense ride!
