    ★★★★

    I loved this! Easily the best R-rated comedy since 2018's Game Night, and I think I have to confess that I actually like this one a bit more. Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani have such fantastic chemistry and their presence alone easily make this movie worth the watch. There are so many funny bits and quotable moments, but it's also surprisingly touching and sweet at many points too. It's just an all around clever and fun movie that's simply hard not to enjoy.

    Resident Evil: Afterlife

    ★★★½

    This movie is so melodramatic, over-the-top, and goofy but I love it for all those reasons. There's not a lot of horror left in the franchise at this point - the villains are cartoonishly evil, the monsters are awesome but make no sense anymore, and the regular zombies are essentially cannon fodder for stylish fight scenes via Matrix-esque badassary. By this fourth entry, the Resident Evil series unabashedly reveals itself to be an expensive-looking action/sci-fi B-movie franchise (light on the science, heavy on the fiction, of course) with heaping doses of cool and fun to go along with its absolute wackiness. These movies are a treat.

    Wow, what a ride. I can't say that this is a perfect movie, but it really did hit all the buttons for me - and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the sheer scale and the attempt to craft a conclusion to something that's never really been done before.

    The overall plot is so very comic book-y in some of the best ways and it's quite rewarding for those of us who've dug deep into MCU mythology, connections, chronology,…

    Enemy

    ★★★★

    Enemy is a trippy mind-bender of a movie that pits Jake Gyllenhaal against Jake Gyllenhaal against Spiders.  I was continually enthralled throughout it’s entirety and yet I couldn’t really say that I fully understood it by the time the credits rolled.  It’s only after reading some film analysis articles and watching some YouTube videos on the movie that I can really say that I’m starting to get what it might have been trying to say.  I’m not quite sold that…
