  • The Death of Stalin

    The Death of Stalin

    I did something so insulting.... so blasphemous... so abhorrent. 

    Ready? 

    I watched this film on the plane. 

    BUT

    I still laughed my ass off and think it’s one of my faves so far this year. The comic timing is impeccable. The performances shine. My god... Paddy Considine really shows his comedy chops. 

    Loved it and recommend seeing it ASAP. But not on a plane... it deserves better.

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    I apologize to Taika Waititi for not seeing this on the big screen. It came out during awards season and things were quite busy. But I’m such a of fan of his... awards season is no excuse. 

    Really had fun with this film. Even the heavy cgi moments worked for me. 

    Tessa is amazing and now I’m a major fan. Goldblum rules. Overall... really funny and impressive. 

    Oh... that shot where Loki and Valkyrie go to see the Grandmaster and the camera looks into the mirrored floor and flips to follow their reflections. Whoa!  Great shot.  Never have seen that before. 

    Watched on Netflix.

    What an accomplishment. One of my faves of the year.

    Please see this projected on film. It's worth it.

    PTA's cinematography should have received way more recognition this award's season.

  • Annihilation

    I really like this film. It's bold and beautiful. Color scheme and production design are top notch. Doesn't feel the need to answer every question.
    I hope this does well at the box office because Garland is trying something different here.

    Saw it on the big screen at the DGA in LA.
