    Wilson

    ★★★★

    A dark comedy with a lot more to it than meets the eye, Wilson is a film that's as nihilistic as it is pitch-black and witty in its humor but also offers a surprising amount of heart to go along with it, as well as a terrific lead performance from the always fantastic Woody Harrelson.

  • Everything, Everything

    Everything, Everything

    Although the actors do the best they can with the material given, Everything, Everything is overly saccharine tripe with a poor script that reeks of cloying sentimentality, predictability, and complete and utter failure to ring true, and its two leads are stuck playing ungodly boring characters who share nonexistent chemistry with one another.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★½

    And stop right there, you. You, who's about to go all, "Oh, well you just hated it because it was dark and gritty and not fun like that Marvel shit!"

    FUCK. OFF.

    I don't dislike this film because it isn't "fun". I dislike it because it's an incoherent, nonsensical, convoluted, overstuffed, overbloated, rushed Albatross of filmmaking.

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
