    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★★

    Truly an unbelievable story and a fantastic film. The story on its own is pretty damn crazy, but that craziness is really conveyed well throughout the film.
    John David Washington really channeled his father and put on a hell of a performance. He and Adam Driver should split awards for their performances as Ron Stallworth.
    Shoutout to Topher Grace for really bodying the role of David Duke.
    Another major highlight was the writing which was really rich and moving.

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★★

    Truly, truly beautiful, while at the same time, painfully hard to watch, but that's what makes this movie so special.
    Eight Grade is an absolute triumph for Bo Burnham who displays incredible talent as a filmmaker. This film had me laughing my ass off one minute to completely shook at another. The range of emotions is so important in a movie like this because it draws such good parallels to real life and its ups and downs.

    Collateral

    ★★★★

    Nothing here was groundbreaking, but it was all still done at a high level. While slightly predictable, Jamie Fox and Tom Cruise’s fantastic perfofmances more than make up for it. Cruise is an absolute madman in the movie and Jamie Fox has just about the worst day ever. Overall a great crime movie just to watch.

  • A Prayer Before Dawn

    A Prayer Before Dawn

    ★★★½

    This movie gets a 10/10 on the disturbing scale. A Prayer Before Dawn is just about as brutal a movie as they come. A lot of this is because of the realism. This movie makes me thoroughly believe that a Thai prison is just about the scariest place on Earth, with tatted up monsters roaming about, foaming with savageness.Most of the redeeming qualities lie in the technical aspects of the film and in the sympathy for the protagonist.

    Joe Cole was very good.

    Wow. Just wow. 

    This was the only thing I could think throughout this amazing movie. I have never been so blown away by a movie for as long as I can remember. As a film lover, as well as a person with eyes, this movie was just on another level. 

    From a technical standpoint, there is no better movie than this one. The techniques used to actually make and film this movie are unbelievable. There were certain…

  • Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★★★½

    After hearing mixed reviews, I went in unsure of how much I'd like this movie, but shame on me for doubting Marvel. This movie was even better than I expected. Not only was it a great sequel, but it also had a lot of new pieces that really worked. The biggest of which was The Wasp who was a complete bad-ass and a great addition to the Avengers.
    My favorite part of the Ant Man series is the humor, and…
