  • The Godfather

    The Godfather

    ★★★★★

    It only gets better in every rewatch.

  • Scent of a Woman

    Scent of a Woman

    ★★★★

    This early 90s movie highlights what's wrong with leaders even in 2020.

    Entertaining story, loaded with signature whoo-ah's and a young Phillip Seymour Hofmann.

    If you're tangled up, just tango on.

  • A Rainy Day in New York

    A Rainy Day in New York

    ★★★½

    The ubiquitous Chalamet.

  • The Old Guard

    The Old Guard

    ★★★

    Likely worthy of 4 stars if it was the pilot for a new TV series. As a film, however, this was painfully unremarkable.

  • The Gambler

    The Gambler

    ★★

    "Fuck you".
    This movie lacked a lot more Brie Larson.

  • 2 Guns

    2 Guns

    ★★

    2 stars.

  • Trumbo

    Trumbo

    ★★★★

    “Dad am I a communist?“
    “If you had a sandwich and your friend had no lunch, what would you do?”

    I just can't understand why this movie gets such a bad rap. Engaging story. Good acting.

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★½

    Unexpected gem! Great synergy between Crowe and Gosling.

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★½

    Still solid on second view.

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★

    What?!

    Maybe this is a film about broken dreams that passes in the city of dreams.

    Not sure — and even 19 years later I don't think the casting knows that either.

  • My Neighbor Totoro

    My Neighbor Totoro

    ★★★

    Two kids and their dad move into a house falling apart but rather than being afraid of ghosts they just feel like running, shouting and getting lost in the woods for 1,5 hour.

    No story at all yet heartwarming.

  • Focus

    Focus

    ★½

    Couldn't get pass the first 15 minutes
