    May December


    I know Charles Melton is on the tip of everyone’s tongue when talking about this movie but goddamn I can see why. His performance blew me away. His role is a really difficult one since his character is stuck in this arrested development and he portrays it so convincingly. Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore of course knock it out of the park and i think this is one of Portman’s best performances. 

    The movie starts with this couple meeting Portman…

    Family Switch


    A very predictable movie but I watched it with my family and we were laughing a lot. I mean it was laughing at the movie but that part was still fun. The more sincere parts don’t really work for me although all the actors do the best with what they got. That CGI dog and baby have to go.

  • Showing Up

    Showing Up


    Showing Up by Kelly Reichardt is exactly what I thought it would be. A slow burn drama showing us a moment in someone’s life. I’ve only seen one of her other movies which is First Cow and I thought that was great so I was excited to see her newest film. 

    I thought this was great. Michelle Williams gives a fantastic performance. It’s very subtle and quiet but for this movie its very effective. Judd Hirsch has some limited screen…

    The Flash


    Damn this movie is less funny than I thought it would be and my bar was pretty low. I don’t know if this is a hot take but Ezra Miller is not good in this movie. He’s unfunny, annoying, and can’t hit a dramatic beat. To be fair the script doesn’t give him much to work with but it’s still bad regardless. This also might be the ugliest movie I’ve seen in a couple years. The visual effects are shockingly…

  • They Cloned Tyrone

    They Cloned Tyrone


    Damn I was really into this! The premise and screenplay are so much fun while also having something to say which can be a tough balancing act, but They Cloned Tyrone pulled it off. Unfortunately I feel like not enough people checked this one out. Jamie Foxx, Teyonah Parris, and John Boyega are an incredible trio! Jamie Foxx is a major standout though. His comedic timing is perfect. Juel Taylor made a movie that doesn’t get made all that often and he does a great job balancing the serious and absurd. I’d love to see more movies like this!

  • Reality



    A tense movie with a great Sydney Sweeney performance. I don’t really have any issues with this movie it does everything well but it doesn’t do anything great. The conversation itself is interesting but the characters are pretty cardboard. Not much under the surface. Overall a good movie but more interesting than engaging.

  • Creed III

    Creed III


    I can’t help but have fun with these Creed movies. A couple steps down from the first but a step up from the second. Creed 3 is carried by its charismatic lead performances and riveting fight choreography. Jonathan Majors and Michael B Jordan put their all into this movie and it shows. The story itself is my main issue. The ascent of Majors to fighting Creed is rushed and we could’ve cut some moments of Creed being a parent to expand on him and Majors relationship and build up to the fight. Didn’t love this one but had fun watching it.

    A surprisingly fun time! Sandra Oh steals the show and I hope we get to see her in more large scale comedic roles. Had some really funny sequences. Some plot elements seemed unnecessary and detracted from what I cared about which was the bond between the sisters. Overall fun time and I’m glad they are still making comedies like this

  • Past Lives

    Past Lives


    A beautiful look at what is and what could’ve been. Did I make the right choice? Am I happy where I am now? I am happy but could I have been happier if I had made different choices? All these questions are asked under the surface of Celine Song’s feature debut Past Lives. An incredibly acted, and well written film that made me reflect on my own life and the choices that have brought me to this point.

  • Sanctuary



    Two incredible performances by Margaret Qualley and Christopher Abbott. Without these two fantastic leads these movie would’ve fallen on its face. The story is interesting and the direction adds some tension but there was a couple lulls where I felt the movie was trying to reach that 90 minute mark. The camerawork and direction were interesting and kept me engaged. Some of the choices were pretty impressive for a movie that essentially takes place in one room. I am not…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3


    The Guardians of the Galaxy movies are the only MCU movies that have a genuine emotional through line, and Guardians 3 is the only MCU movie to actually get me to tear up. This movie is heartwarming, emotionally resonating, and overall a fun ride. Every character got a moment that felt like an amazing sendoff for them. Rocket Raccoon is the real star here. Everything with his character was handled so well I loved it. Much to my surprise the…

  • The King of Comedy

    The King of Comedy


    An incredible movie with a career best performance from De Niro. The commentary on celebrity idolization was well ahead of its time and Rupert Pupkin is a very interesting character to run these ideas and frustrations through. Although Pupkin is an extreme version of a superfan, Zimmerman has written him in a fashion where you won’t empathize with him but you will understand him. A large part of that understanding comes from De Niros performance. Rupert feels like a real…
