    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    ★★★★★

    Sometimes.. I think that it’s something of a shame the human race reached its artistic peak with Fellowship of the Ring. But then I’m just glad we were alive to witness it.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    Avengers: Endgame now holds the title of best Marvel movie. If you want to see perfectly executed storytelling, feel every human emotion there is, and see decade of your life flash in front of your eyes - go see this movie.

  • Velvet Buzzsaw

    Velvet Buzzsaw

    ★★

    Reminded me of The Neon Demon in a few ways... mostly in its aimlessness.... except with better acting (for the most part), less pretentiousness and a slightly intriguing horror tinge to the mystery. Even then, it never hits the mark and is utterly boring for the vast majority of the film. 2/5 wouldn’t watch again

  • The Cloverfield Paradox

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★★½

    Starts out kind of slow going, has clunky dialogue and a bit too much exposition, but as the movie keeps going everything gets better and better, cool things start happening, and it just becomes fun to watch to see how it all connects. The ending made everything worth it.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    Oh, you know it’s lit like the rebellion mother fuckers🔥🔥🔥

  • Justice League

    Justice League

    ★★★

    Slightly better the second time after knowing that the movie wasn’t a true follow up to Batman v Superman.

    Still, this is a shoddy Frankenstein monster of a film that had the potential to be so much more. Thanks to studio meddling and mandates (and Joss Whedon), Snyders’s true vision will never be complete and we are left with the shadow of that creativity, all Marveled-up.

  • Justice League

    Justice League

    ★★½

    Probably the most disappointed I’ve ever been in a movie, and I am not sure how to deal with these feelings.

    After such a profound piece of art that masterfully combined storytelling and a feeling of epicness like Batman v Superman, Justice League is so many steps backwards that I don’t think they will ever be able to recover and catch up to where they were, even with the speedforce.

  • The Finest Hours

    The Finest Hours

    ★★★½

    It is hard to decide if "The Finest Hours" would have been better with or without the banner of Disney on it. On one hand, the film certainly feels old fashioned and Disney's touch has given it a small sense of wonder. But at the same time, it feels restrained in a way that is unexpected. Everything seems a little too clean, and not real enough. Nonetheless, as it stands now, the film serves as an often thrilling journey about…

  • Manchester by the Sea

    Manchester by the Sea

    ★★★★½

    "Manchester by the Sea" may be the most realistic movie ever made. Kenneth Lonergan's story of a man that must deal with the demons of his past as he deals with a tragedy in his present is an effective, deep, sad, and tough view on the worst aspects of life that most people have to go through at one point or another.

    The very basic premise of the film is that Lee Chandler, a quiet working man, must take care…

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★

    "La La Land", the second feature from writer/director Damien Chazelle, is whimsical, colorful, pristine, and much like its cynical depiction of the city it is named after, soulless. Perhaps the allure of a modern day musical is simply enough to win over the hearts of those that love the genre, but when taking a closer look, it is clear that several aspects of what is otherwise an aesthetically flawless production are missing their marks.

    Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling star…

  • Fences

    Fences

    ★★★★

    Thanks to two riveting performances from Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, "Fences" overcomes its biggest obstacle in adapting a play to screen: making an entire movie about people talking fascinating to watch.

    Denzel Washington directs a script based on the play by August Wilson which tells the story of the Maxson family. Troy, played by Denzel Washington, is a garbage man that is trying to provide for his family. His wife, Rose played by Viola Davis, is a stay at…

  • Why Him?

    Why Him?

    ★★★½

    "Why Him?" may not be the most original comedy to come out this year, but it certainly is one of the better ones. With a heart of gold, a great supporting cast, and two committed and hilarious leads, the film offers a lot of laughs and a carefree story that is extremely fun to watch. It is a reverse "Meet the Parents" for a new generation.

    Writer and director John Hamburg is known for his heartfelt comedies. They are plenty…
