• Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    The stakes are higher, the planes are faster, and there’s plenty of that Tom Cruise look to go around! Get your butt to the theater and check out the best action movie of the year so far! Tom Cruise is at a point in his career where he does not miss and the newcomers are all great. This is probably the best case scenario for a legacy sequel so be sure to not miss it!

  • The Bob's Burgers Movie

    The Bob's Burgers Movie

    ★★★½

    Fans of the show are sure to enjoy this joyous celebration of the first family of burgers. Laugh out loud funny with enough deep character moments to really make this feel like more than just a long episode. Great songs too!

  • Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★½

    A great satire of the animation industry with enough fun cameos and meta humor to entertain a wide audience. Akiva Schaffer continues to prove his instincts for comedy are incredible. 

    Even if you’re not familiar with the original show, there’s more than enough to enjoy here!

  • Men

    Men

    ★★★½

    There’s a lot going on here and I’m confident I didn’t catch it all, but this movie was genuinely terrifying at times and filled with some great surrealist moments. Rory Kinnear is menacingly creepy and Buckley delivers a scream queen performance for the ages.

     Garland is certainly an excellent filmmaker but I’m just not sure I get what he’s trying to say with this one. Going to have to sit with it for a while.

  • Jackass 4.5

    Jackass 4.5

    ★★★½

    I just don’t wanna think about how long it’s gonna be before we get more jackass. The world truly needs it.

    The sashimi bit had me gagging and the skydiving was an all timer for sure!

  • Waiting for Guffman

    Waiting for Guffman

    ★★★★

    Another Christopher Guest banger. Everyone firing on all cylinders. True pillars of comedy!

  • A Mighty Wind

    A Mighty Wind

    ★★★★

    I’d seen Best in Show, and just watched Spinal Tap the other day, so I figured why not keep diving into more Christopher Guest Mockumentaries. Spiritually, this was such a great follow up to spinal tap. Seeing McKean, Sheerer and Guest go from buffoon diva rockstars to storied folk singers is the definition of comedy on its own.

    Some absolute all stars in this one. Fred Willard and Jennifer Coolidge had me HOWLING, while Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy give this film a powerful emotional heartbeat.

    I have a few more of these to watch and honestly couldn’t be more excited!

  • This Is Spinal Tap

    This Is Spinal Tap

    ★★★★

    McKean Shearer and Guest are FANTASTIC. Perfectly skewering rock music in every facet. Rob Reiner’s instincts for comedy are perfect. A true genre defining banger.

  • 3 Women

    3 Women

    ★★★★

    A perplexing and deeply hypnotic film. Maybe the most nuanced and challenging Altman film I’ve seen so far and one that I will certainly need to rewatch to fully grasp, but the performances are incredible, the score is excellent, and Altman’s filmmaking is at an unbelievably high level!

  • Carrie

    Carrie

    ★★★★

    After a lackluster King adaptation with Firestarter, I needed some good food to cleanse the palette. De Palma’s Carrie is a bloody and brutal slow burn with a perfect dash of supernatural flair. A perfect performance from Sissy Spacek that shockingly, but rightfully actually received recognition form the academy. Another classic 70’s horror that makes me wanna dive into more King and more De Palma immediately!

  • The Handmaiden

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★★

    Been waiting to watch this one for a while and figured the anniversary was a good time. All I can say is wow. This one floored me.

    Park Chan-Wook’s masterful filmmaking on full display with a cast full of impeccable and daring performances. A twisted but deeply beautiful and sensual story. Most films like this one greatly improve on rewatch, and while this one probably would too, it’s so meticulously crafted and thorough that it left me speechlessly satisfied. The truest definition of a masterpiece.
