    The Aeronauts

    ★½

    This was bad, right? Like, someone please confirm I’m not alone. 

    The time jumps were totally unnecessary, the dialogue cringeworthy, and Eddie Redmayne’s character is useless. What’s worse, the saving grace of the film, Felicity Jones’ badass performance as Amelia Wren, is a fictional character made up for this “historical” film! Ugh.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★

    As a biopic, this doesn’t delve into its subject matter as deeply as a film like La Vie En Rose does, but Queen’s music is so good that I didn’t really care all that much.

    The Mountain Between Us

    ★★½

    A mediocre survival story is made slightly less mediocre with some beautiful cinematography and reliably good performances from both Kate Winslet and Idris Elba.

    But let's be honest, the dog is the best part of the film.

  • Chinatown

    Chinatown

    ★★★★★

    "Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."

    This film has arguably one of the most iconic endings in cinema history, and it's an ending that almost didn't even make it to screen! Robert Towne, the film's writer, originally wrote a completely different, and significantly happier, ending, but the director, Roman Polanski, felt it didn't capture the themes of the film, so he changed it and wrote the iconic one we know today.

    A classic film noir that should be viewed for Jack Nicholson's performance alone.
