  • My Darling Vivian

    My Darling Vivian

    ★★

    Once Riddlehoover finds the movie’s groove, Vivian’s story carries a rather profound sense of sadness. It’s easy to empathize with her as the four daughters recount Vivian’s struggles in raising not four children, but also tending to a practically oversized home and dealing with the physical and psychological aspects of celebrity that come with being the wife of Johnny Cash – all single-handedly, of course, as Cash was on tour for months at a time. At a point, we’re informed…

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★

    Whether it be superheroes, kaiju monsters, or paranormal investigators, the interconnected series of cinematic adventures have come to define the landscape of the modern blockbuster, but the idea of a “cinematic universe” has existed almost as long as the motion picture itself. As early as 1925, Universal was planting seeds for a cohesive universe of characters in the form of their “Universal Classic Monsters,” not only bringing literary horrors such as Count Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster to the silver screen…

    Wait Until Dark

    ★★★

    Kind of dumb and unnecessarily convoluted, but pretty fun, especially as it progresses. Worked pretty well as an adaptation, but I bet this is a very cool stage play. It's so funny to see Alan Arkin in this: he's one of those actors I've only seen as an older man so it's so strange to come to the realization that he was once... young.

  • Earwig and the Witch

    Earwig and the Witch

    ★★½

    Surprisingly, I don't think the 3D CGI animation is this one's biggest downfall: it's not particularly good, mind you, but I think it's just stylized enough to where it mostly captures that Ghibli aesthetic we're used to. The glaring problem is a really, painfully bad script that I'd go as far to say is completely unfinished (I'm aware the source novel was rushed to completion before the author's death). Earwig is a protagonist with genuinely no character arc and none…

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar

    ★★★★½

    Remarkably intelligent and undeniably ambitious, Christopher Nolan finds the perfect balance of space thrills and human emotion in the truly brilliant Interstellar.

  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One

    ★★★★½

    Ok so I recognize that this narrative is quite flawed, but dammit this is the Spielberg I've been waiting for for so long. This is the Spielberg I grew up on, the Spielberg that introduced me to film in my childhood and the one that cemented my love for it. Yes, the references are fun, and there's one in the second act that made me cry so much I had tears streaming down my face and had to try to…
