    Straight Time

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    74/100

    While not credited, this was apparently the first screenplay Michael Mann worked on, and there are plenty of vibes here that gave me that. Straight Time is a slow burn thriller that is carried with affective drama, very impressive camera work and one of the best performances I’ve seen from Dustin Hoffman. His character was much different than what I’m used to for him and I was very surprised with how he pulled it off. Overall a very well crafted 70s film with carefully built tragic romance and self destruction that also contained intense back and forth foolery that Hoffman takes us through.

    96/100

    10 years ago, this was probably my #1 of all time, and Memento still holds up as one of films best thrillers. The script flowed much better than I thought it was going to for this viewing, and it shocked me how much of the dialogue I still remembered. It’s always good to wind back an old favorite, and I did it with the right mood.

    I'm not gonna tell you how good The Shining is, I'm just gonna tell you that if you haven't seen this horror classic, then you must... or I'm gonna bash your brains in.

    ★★★★½

    91/100

    This is what made all of the hours watching 1-5 of the Mission: Impossible series in a day even more worth it. I've heard nothing but praise about this film, so I made sure to do it right and go see it in IMAX. And I'm so glad to say that Mission: Impossible- Fallout is not only one of the best action movies of the last 20 years, but my favorite film in the Mission: Impossible series.
